Thanks to all for the info on this brewery. Recently tried the Distorted and Through and was very impressed by both. Can't wait to try more from these guys.

Through the Glass has been a bit hit or miss for me - Batch I had in April was fantastic, the last couple batches haven't been as good (but still above average).

The Distorted is the star of the show for me.Reminds me of the stuff coming out of the Hudson Valley as of late.

Couldn't agree more with this entire post.

Well, I finally was fortunate enough to have a neighbour bring me 1 of each beers from last weekends drop

Straight up, that Textbook IPA is one of the finest fucking beers I’ve had all year

Color is nuclear yellow, nose is potent, alcohol is blended beautifully, taste is a 10

I don’t have enough good things to say about it.

I sincerely hope I get to try more from these guys.. pretty much my dream brewery style wise from what I’ve seen much like Messorem in Montreal

I am dying for BarnCat to start doing them steady

Does everyone here know about Evolve or Die? Every year they make a DIPA with extreme hopping rates. Last year's was the most aggressively hopped beer I have every had. This year's is less aggressive, but a downright outstanding beer. They're expensive, but I think they're worth it as a once a year expense.

They also just announced a change to "annual" releases, which is interesting. Basically just putting a year on the label for each beer, because they know there will be variations from year to year.

Reading back through the thread now, it's crazy to me that these guys were ever in TBS.

Badlands is insane

To start on a 1BBL system, brew 3-5 times a week, package 700 - 1000 on a self built bottler and then self distribute to TBS while working other full time jobs is insanity

Then, to grow that to a 15BBL brewery with retail and draught on a farm in Caledon, well thats also crazy

Those guys work incredibly hard and deserve the praise they get

Great beer and even better people

I just picked this up, was a while since I ordered from them. It's great (as are all their beers)

FYI, they also changed their on line ordering. It used to kick off Friday nights @ 7:00 PM, now its Fridays at noon.
