    It's been ages since I've see CCB sixers in my neck of the woods. Does anyone know why this is, and if other surrounding cities are experiencing the same?

    I was told CC has not shipped to NY in about a year and anything you see on the shelves is a least that old (for LI at least), could be wrong

    I've been wondering the same thing. Haven't seen anything in a while in NYC.

    CCB hasn't had a proper shipment to S.K.I. distributors in quite a while. When I contacted the brewery I was told it was due to their wanting to supply the home market before looking to other areas and it would be until they finished their (Then current) expansions which, I believe, finished in November. There have been random shipments of some of their kegs but nothing bottle (or can) wise as far as I know in quite a while. There's still some of it kicking around but it is very old.

    In better news, It's in Vermont.

    I found some Jai Alai in Pittsburgh via Philly at House of 1000 Beers. DatedDecemebr 27th. Definitely wasn't expecting it.

    A large local liquor store told me that Cigar City stopped distributing a few months ago to Atlanta, so I'm not sure what the deal is. Weird because it's not like ATL is far from Tampa. I was fortunate enough to have a family member bring me back some Jai Alai IPA recently, but I have yet to see any of their brews around these parts.

    I've desparately been wanting to try some of their other beers (sans Marshal Zhukov's Imperial Stout; I did not care for that stuff).
