$50 a ticket and all you get is 1 bottle of beer and a commemorative glass. Little rediculous if you ask me.

Yeah, I am trying to take the ridiculous out of my beer pursuits lately. Go to Trillium only if I am in the neighborhood in the middle of the day with nothing launching. Same for Tree House. Way fewer over the top IPA/DIPAs, more standard classic fare. All that and brewing some of my own. May just go that way in total once I run out of Pretty Things.

Went to Canton on Thursday at around 1:30 and I was the line. Actually had time to talk to the guys about the number of beers on the boards nowadays and ask why there was a Shipyard company car in the lot. Very not ridiculous and enjoyable.

Yeah, I'm trying to do the same....I've been finding all kinds of small breweries that are serving up solid beer without the wait. I literally have a good 8 breweries that I can hit on the way home from work. They're popping up everywhere.

Next week I got training up in Maine......going to be 2 miles away from Bissell Brothers and the other breweries so I'll be popping into there

I usually go toward more standard offerings in spring and summer.

Bottling now, seeing signs of "distribution" as well. Try beermenus or something like it. Might just be kegs right now. Sounds like they have more expansion plans too.

last I heard they were looking to expand distribution, but not outside of MA in the foreseeable future.

Yankee Spirit in Attleboro has a good selection of Trillium. Fort Point, Congress Street, Scaled, Melcher Street, big sprang, wake robin, Free Rise, Sleeper Street, Summer Street and probably some others. If you don't see what you want ask the guys that work there, one told me that have a bunch in the back.
