I think I might be crazy...
So yesterday I woke up at 5am, got a few things together (my Troegs growler, a cooler, cookies, all the essentials) and headed to King of Prussia to meet up with my buddy. Once there we set off for the brewery at about 6am. Let me say, driving before the sun comes up is crazy. Never do it.
By 8:30 the line looked like this:
Finally, at 11:45 we got our two bottles of Splinter Blue and the long, long wait was over. At this point, we settled down to a pint from their firkins (basically just a name of a smallish keg that contains uncarbonated beer, similar to a cask).
After that we went to lunch to let the crowds die down in the brewery and came back after about an hour and a half so I could fill my growler and pick up a couple bottles of some other stuff since it was pretty cheap. How could I not buy it! In the end this is the collection I ended up with after my day of beer at the Troegs brewery in Harrisburg.
Would I go again for the next release of their Splinter series? That's a tougher question and I'm honestly not sure at this point.
