Yea. I'm lucky enough to have my parents and my brothers and their friends team up during the summer and rent a cottage in madaket for a few weeks and split the time amongst them.
They often visit the brewery on the island there..... like sometimes twice daily. (Ha) I've only been a few times, maybe 5 over the past few years, but its really cool. Like a wooden barn/bar in the middle of a farm in this little grove of trees. its wicked. And they have the vodka distillery Triple 8 there too. If anyone gets a chance, well worth visiting. The porter is their best brew fa sho.


I was so F'in hungover in that picture from the night before, 4 years ago i believe. hair of the dog trick DID NOT work that time we were sitting in the square enjoyin some wale tale pale ale i think. much better straight from the source.

I'd like to try some of their other brews. I've had the Whale's Tale several times and was never impressed.

I remember you sayin that during the summer you had a can right?

Straight from a keg, drunk on the location where it was brewed very recently, makes it far better than in a can thats been sitting on in shelf, no?

Good memory.

I've had it in both cans and bottles. I thought the can was terrible and the bottle ok.

Certainly, I'd always prefer to sample a beer under ideal conditions which is usually on draught. That being said, the alum can is an ideal container for beer...perhaps better than the bottle.

I won't write them off on just that though, if I see other offerings I'll try them. Not everything is perfect all of the time.

They seem to be pushing the wales tail pail prett heavily. It is available at a lot of bars and resteraunts that don't feature any craft brews which is nice but overall I would agree with spence's review.

I will look for the porter.

dont waste your money on the porter, if you agree with Spence on something its highly unlikely you'll agree with me on anything

I haven't tried the beer yet, but the 888 Vodka from the distillery is excellent.
