    I'm traveling to Park City next week, arriving in a couple days, and was just wondering if anyone could help by telling me what Firestone Walker and Deschutes beers I might be able to find on the shelves around the area? I will be heading to squatters for sure while I'm there, but I can't get FW or Deschutes in OH, and am hoping to get some good stuff.

    Thanks for the help. Cheers!

    You should be able to find Firestone Walker's Wooky Jack, Double DBA (maybe), Double Jack & XVI Anniversary (maybe) and most of their regular line up.

    Deschutes' regulars are just about anywhere, plus RedChair, Chase'n Freshies, Hop Henge , Hop in the Dark, Hop Trip, The Dissident & if your able to make to the Beerhive in SLC there is still some Black Butte XXI & Mirror Mirror.

    Just curious if you have seen The Dissident at any of the liquor stores down in SLC lately? I haven't made the rounds in while.

    I haven't. I've been to both wine stores in the past week; wasn't looking for Dissident specifically--but I'm pretty sure I would have noticed it ;)

    I actually called both wine stores this afternoon and was told that neither The Dissident or The Abyss made it into the state this year. I don't know if this means that they haven't gotten them up until this point, or if they are not coming at all. I assume that expecting The Dissident to show up is pretty much a lost cause at this point, but hopefully there is still hope for The Abyss. It would be a shame to miss out on both of these beers, as having the Deschutes Reserve Series is one of the very few redeeming qualities of the state liquor stores.

    The Bayou is serving both the Dissident & 2012 Abyss right now.

    I found the last bottle of FW Anny XVI at the State Liquor in Park City. I picked up a few regulars of Deschutes and some FW Pale 31 - that was all they had of FW. Overall, there was nothing else that caught my eye. I was hoping they would have some of the Deschutes bombers, like Hop Henge or Chasing Freshies, but all they had were the year round offerings.
