    Hey guys,

    My dad is heading to Mt. Pleasant, IA for work this week and said he would make a pit stop for me to grab some Toppling Goliath. He is going to be going through Cedar Rapids and Waterloo as well, does anyone know of a good beer liquor store in any of those cities I should direct him to?

    Through Cedar Rapids, go to Oakland Road Hyvee. About a 1.5 miles off of 380. Could also go to Benz which is a little further South but not too far from the interstate, either.

    There is nothing here in Waterloo that you can't get in Cedar Rapids/Iowa City.

    TG bottles tend to be gone the day they arrive. Tuesday is usually the day in IC/CR, if they arrive at all. If it's not the right Tuesday, you are probably wasting your time.
