    Wow. The coloring of that beer looks great. I’m 0 for 2 on those breweries but Tree House and Trillium top my list of breweries I want to try.

    Speaking of good breweries, we’ve been getting Equilibrium at my local spot and their beer is fantastic. That said, it’s pretty damn pricey. They’re selling it for $24 a 4 pack. When I compare it to my other local go-to breweries it’s hard to justify the price difference. What do Tree House and Trillium cost on average (retail pricing)?

    That is a little marked up for Equilibrium, but for all of the limited/special Trillium beers, theyre charging 22.20 a 4-pack straight pickup from brewery, so its not that far off.

    I've always been a TreeHouse fan boy, but Trillium has blown them out of the water as far as 2020 is concerned.  The collabs and special releases have been incredible.  Even Vitamin Sea has had a better year for me than TreeHouse to be honest.  

    TreeHouse also has me a lot less interested since its August 1st and theyre still requiring a minimum of a 1 case purchase online.  I respect that theyre trying to be safe, but every other brewery has found a way to not require a 1 case minimum, seems like a slightly greedy play to be honest.

    Good info. Thanks. At least I won’t feel like I’m getting ripped off if I venture out of my usual lane and pick some up on occasion. I do think their beer is outstanding, from what I’ve tried.

    So they’re requiring a minimum 1 case purchase for pickup at the brewery? If so, I agree that it seems like an odd play.  I can get curbside for any amount I’d like straight from the brewery from most of my local go-tos.

    I absolutely loved this one.  I think it's my favorite hazy from P3 so far.  All of their IPAs are solid but I feel like none of them have really stood out much yet until this one.  Also- their stouts are incredible.  Haven't had any BA from them yet but I've had most of the Curvature series and those have all been really good.
