Team New England Gang Bang BIF Round 3 Packing Party

West Springfield, MA: Beer Run at Table and Vine [Beer]

Knew I had to hit up Table & Vine on the way home from Worcester today. I’ve heard plenty about it from friends and BAers alike. This place is dangerous for my wallet! Didn’t pick up anything too fancy but they have plenty here I haven’t picked up yet locally or just can’t get here in general. Prices are very reasonable.

Today’s Payload (from left to right):

  • Dogfish Head – Saison Du Buff
  • Victory Brewing Company – Saison Du Buff (going to hold on to both of these until I get the Stone and drink all together)
  • Sierra Nevada – Hoptimum
  • Pretty Things Beer & Ale Project – Saint Botolph’s Town
  • Pretty Things Beer & Ale Project – Fluffy White Rabbits
  • Firestone Walker – Sucaba
  • Allagash – Allagash Curieux (Bourbon Barrel-Aged Tripel)
  • Left Hand Brewing Co. – Nitro Milk Stout
