    Auto siphon makes it much easier. I just got back into home brewing last Fall after about a 25 year hiatus. Man, have things changed. Most of my brewing has been with the Brew Club at the Shriners, but I just bought a kegerator and I will try kegging (except right now its filled with Treehouse). It is sure easier than bottles.

    In west Springfield for the week for some work training. At a local bar/grille now and tried this Iron Duke 4am IPA. Very tasty.

    Riverdale Street yes. Down the street from the taphouse. It’s called Cal’s wildfired grill.

    Now I’m waiting on my crawfish and shrimp dinner while sipping Night Shift Buzz. 8.5%. Not bad. This Cajun place in Springfield is BYOB...

    HUGE score today. The training instructor I had in Springfield this week, gave me all of this beer for FREE. He was overflowing with beer and was glad to give it a good home
    Never even heard of most of these breweries. But I’m excited to tap into them.

    Haha I know right!? I’m like dude don’t give away your whole stash. Especially when many of these are $5 a can. He said he’s tried them all and has 2 fridges full...

    Last seen chewing the bark off a tree
    I went to Trillium in Canton yesterday for the first time. My buddy works right near there,so I have tried a few different beers from them.

    Went to the pours and got some really expensive chocolate truffle pecan stout beer,not really sure what else was in it,but it did start with chocolate. It was just about the best stout I have ever had. All the flavors were intense and the scariest thing is I didnt even taste the alcohol which was supposedly 13%.

    Best $12.00 I ever spent on an 8oz pour.

    I wish they bottled it,I would have spent some serious cash on 12 or 20 bottles.

    Looked it up,although they didnt have bottles when I was there

    Someday I'll try Trillium and Treehouse...never made it. My wife did yoga at Night Shift once; never been to their Everett loc but I've tried a bunch of their offerings even though they don't distribute here in NH. Since I moved up here I try to support NH breweries.

    My first homebrew beer will be ready tomorrow, bringing it to Easter Sunday. I'll be brewing a NEIPA after that.

    Now that Easter's passed, maybe Ron will be back in action.
    My Spyglass growlers still have a porter I brewed a few weeks ago; not drinking anything this weekend anyway since I will be doing an Appleseed.

    I get a four pack of Woodstock's Mosaic Papaya, and it has been pretty good.

    I heard Double Helix is back. The Smokehaus is also pouring it so that’s another option.

    I wanted to try Double Helix. I think the last time I was there was March 15, although two of those weekends I was away.

    Pretty soon it'll be time to start grilling in earnest, and some nice brews would be good. I think I'd like to try to brew a lager.

    Toppling Goliath's offering I had, Hopsmack I think, was good as well.

    Have you tried this? New to NH. A four pack of 12oz cans was $15.99! That’s more than Trillium or Treehouse. I’ll try it this weekend.

    15563278474651001827124.jpg I found a Ballantine can in the wall of a house I am renovating. So I had to pick up a six in honor of my uncle who has been drinking Ballantine since the 60's. Can't get him to try anything else.

    I saw it in cans at my local packie. I think it was a fruit infused IPA so I gave it a pass. Cool logo.
