    Folks, this seems about as dumb as posting 'has anyone seen any Crown Lager', however, still unable to locate any. Local Dannos didn't have any, nor a couple of smaller-but-not-tiny shops I tried..

    Any sightings on the North Shore of Sydney - and a price I should benchmark?

    cheers,

    finally - sanity prevails and I found some @ VC at Beecroft. $16 for two bottles. Was just surprised as I thought I saw a release date of Feb 8th that it took so long to hit the shelves.

    Got some MG Ry IPA as well @ 10/bottle....

    Not to mention the guy was intent on plying me with tasters of Penfolds Bin 389 - but I guess that's for another forum!!

    Have to say - I was amazed by this one. MB have always been kinda sorta OK with their limited stuff - noting I came onto scene after Ten20, but this was an outstanding beer. Review to come.

    So of course I've now bought lots, knowing it's a one-off, and equally knowing that this will decline faster than other styles due to the fact that the hops used, make the nose so wonderful - part of the appeal.

    Wish it was a regular part of range.

    Have to agree, I too was really surprised by this one and would love this to part of the regular range.
    Top drop!!!

    Ouch.

    Enjoy your hefe, as I imagine the hops are long gone.

    It's still showing up in Perth at some of the more outer suburbs b/shops. It's amazing in Perth that you essentially start at the IBS and then go out in concentric circles to find things worth drinking as IBS and alike run out.
