Cascade (Racoon Lodge) in FL

Discussion in 'US - South-Atlantic' started by kawilliams81, Mar 21, 2012.

  1. I'm looking at the google docs spreadsheet and it says you can get Cascade in Florida. I will be going to Marco late June and wondering where in FL is Cascade available?

    Thanks.

    Sorry, but that is patently untrue.

    Sorry, but no, it is not. It did land in Florida at least once. Quite a bit was on shelves around the Tampa area a while back. That shipment is long gone, but it at least was distributed in FL at one point. OP, I would be shocked if you found any, but they did have Apricot, Kriek, and the Vine at one point.

    Same is true for South Carolina. I think it dried up there because they were with the distributor that couldn't pay their bills though.

    You can get Cascade in Orlando, Florida. Just saw some on the shelves today.

    Oh rly? What did you see and where? My father-in-law also lives in Oviedo. Sounds like I should send him to go ahead and get my birthday present even if it is 5 months away :)

    Correct, first shipment had Apricot, Kriek, and Vine back in 2010. The next shipment was of just the Kriek. Not sure when anymore will come.

    Vine is non-existent, seen bottles of Apricot in Tampa but not much, and I still see kriek in a few places around the state. Happy hunting:cool:

    I still see the Kriek once in a blue moon here in Tampa, haven't seen anything else in quite some time.

    Big C (just outside Oviedo near UCF) and Knightly Spirits (Kissimmee) both have Cascade. I believe it's either Strawberry or Cherry. I didn't give it a close look, just noticed a red fruit on the front. Both stores have them listed at $17.99.

    If you like fruit beers and are in the area, I have a bunch of New Glarus Belgian Reds and Raspberry Tarts that are awesome.

    Thanks, sounds like it is the Kriek so I will likely pass. Let me know if you see the Apricot.

    I drove up to Minnesota for Darkness Day in 2010. I bought 3 cases of each of those New Glarus beers, so I am all set on those. Thanks for the offer though. :)
