    Limited but yes... This week should start seeing some.
     
  3. I'm sure that the liquor store near me will grace me with the opportunity to buy it for +/- $30.

    That sucks. Pugachev's Cobra was only $17.99/bottle at Total Wine. $30/bottle for Hammerhead? #FleecingOfAmerica.

    lol
     
  5. I don't know what it will be but $30 seems to be the new price for anything with "barrell" in the name.

    These were 17-20 last year, Pugachev's included. Sprouts had them for 14.99!

    I expect some Whole Foods and other local shops will have it on the shelf. Funny, Cobra was just sitting there for days as I eventually picked up a half dozen of them anywhere between $16.99 to $18.99

    Shelf whales, brah.
     
  12. This just released this week.
     
  13. Anyone know what the bottle count was on this release?
     
  14. Not sure but from what i heard this is a very limited compare to last year.

    I wasn't sure if I should reply to the 2nd Post or yours... Either/Or you are correct.

    Also correct that there is less than last yr. 40 cases for OC.

    Little bit hot fresh, but IMO ages better than sucaba. Opened a bottle around the pugachevs release and the heat had faded a bit without losing much barrel character. Ymmv.
     
  18. Age it. The beer is a bit hot when fresh and mellows out a bit later on.
     
  19. I walked into Whole Foods in Tustin yesterday. There were 6 bottles at $17.99 on the shelf.
     
  20. About 3900 bottles.

    TotalWine Brea still has about 10/12th of a case left in their walk-in cooler. The box is just sitting there, alone, unmarked, unloved...

    ha. well, it is hanger 24. A brewery who isn't known for whale bait trade fodder, so of course it gets glossed over.

    Thankfully those of us who like amazing beer know what's up.

  24. I grabbed what looked like the last bottle at Hi Times on wednesday.
     
  25. Hammerhead is liquid gold.

    I picked up a bottle at Totalwine Brea. There's about 4 or 5 bottles left.

    San Diego.
     
  31. They must be keeping the rest in the back then because I was there again last night and the shelf spot was still empty.
