Great Thanx !
Is it hitting Pittsburgh soon? Gonna have to make a drive to get some me thinks...
Picked some up at the brewery in Middleburg Heights. It is outstanding. Methinks I'll have to run down there and grab more. Now if they would just bottle Trail Head and IBUsive, we'll be all set.
Does this come to GA?
Out in Lakewood at Simone's...guy said they only got two cases on their allotment
My understanding is mostly Ohio and some to Pittsburgh.
Yeah, I was told by the owner of my local beer shop that I will see this on the shelf Friday . . . And I always seem to beat the crowd.
My distributor is on the lookout for me. He's like the UPS man, he always delivers. But this one worries me. I think it's going to be a bitch to find.
I heard Friday in the Columbus area as well. From two different sources.
Fat Heads in California? If only it weren't a one-off for a festival...
heard from the distributor that it wasn't going to make it to columbus bc of a shortage.
I was just told the same thing from Cavalier, that due to a shortage it would only be distributed in Cleveland and would not be available in Columbus or Cincinnati. Very disappointing. Normally I wouldn't mind, but they released information stating it would be available state wide, and now they are changing their minds. Why did they have to get our hopes up only to dash them?
Finally, a winner stays in Cleveland!
But seriously, that's a bummer if true.
Got a buddy in Pittsburgh until Friday, he's gonna keep a look out
Hop juju available in northeast ohio stores today
was going to offer up a few bottles to the cause myself.
won't see GA unless you trade for it.
I heard JuJu is on tap in Columbus today in Worthington, OH. Pies and Pints or something.
Most shops in the Cleveland area only got 1 case I grabbed 2 4 packs today.
Lizardville in Copley had 15+ cases as of yesterday at 6pm
I was just thinking . . . I was super excited about the Great Lakes Chillwave release this year. I had it last year and it was fantastic. (easily top 5 of 2013) But ever since I heard about JuJu the Chillwave has takin' a backseat. JuJu has got to be the most hyped ohio brew in a long time.
Maybe they're just messin' with our heads. I hope this is the case anyway. It seems to me that it would not be good PR move to just get everybody excited then not deliver.
This is interesting. I got an email from Cavalier today saying to expect JuJu on shelves in cincy and columbus early next week, as they aren't receiving it until late this week.
It's out in North Olmsted
Just picked some up in fairview park. I can't wait for Friday to drink it
I called them this afternoon and that was what I was told. I really hope you are right as I would love to see this in Cincy.
If anyone is coming up to CLE this Saturday from out of town to hit up the BA beer tasting event BM me if you want to secure some JuJu. Might be sold out by then or would involve some hunting. Happy to help some BA's if I can.
My two guys are sticking to their story that it will be available here in Columbus, as early as Friday. I'm holding out hope.
I'm going to be driving through Cleveland on the way to the in-laws in Western NY on Friday after work. I usually just take 90 straight through. I was hoping I could stop somewhere close to 90 and pick up some bottles of Hop JuJu instead of hoping a shop near me in NW Ohio gets some next week. What is the closest location to 90 that would still have JuJu Friday evening?
Not sure how much they have left at this point but I still think the Brewery in Middleburg Heights might be your best bet. They had plenty still Sunday and were closed Mon/Tues. It's a little ways off 90 but not too far and might be less of a crap shoot as most of the stores I've talked to only got a few cases of it.
Thanks mps. The brewery is the Lorain Rd, North Olmsted address I assume? It doesn't look too far off of 90.
Nope. It's here: Fat Head's Brewery, 18741 Sheldon Road, Middleburg Heights, OH
The North Olmsted location is where the brewpub is located. The brewery doesn't open until 4 PM FYI
This stuff is amazing... This is definitely a big deal for Ohio, especially when it comes to ammo for trading. I think this stuff holds its own against Pliny, ZD, Permanent Funeral and other big dog Ipas/Pale Ales... Give this one some time to make it around in bottles via trade and what not, and it will be HIGHLY sought after in the next year!
So looking forward to the "JuJu's" that @mps was able to nab for me and a few other tasty treats. I absolutely love Fat Head's. Went there to visit friends and they knew I was a big craft beer guy. Never heard of FH at that time but I was sure to put them on my list to frequent after that experience. Their wings are some of the best I've EVER had too!
Wings are terrible, I hate smoked wings.
Are you in SC? Because if you are and you find out, a heads up would be appreciated.
Just saw this went on tap in in CT at Pies and Pints. I'll have to try not to drink my Gandhi Bot and give this beer a try. Won't be easy seeing NE's GB tap staring me down and ordering something else.
Just saw on Beer Menus it's on tap at Yellow Brick in OTE Columbus. Gotta head over there today or tomorrow and check this out. Really hope that rumor of a shortage and no bottle distro to Columbus isn't for real.
Don't forget your 512 oz. JuJu Growler Belt! Take full advantage of that draft availability Buckeyes!
Please do not growler belt and drive
