    Anyone know of Any hopslam available yet. I know bells says the week of the 14th but I have talked to stores that are saying the last week of January?

    I took week of the 14th as when distributors would be receiving it, some stores will get it quicker than others just like any other release.
     
  3. I was told worst case (most likely), it's the week of the 28th. Best case, it's the week before. I'm planning on the week of the 28th. I'm hoping for sooner.

    It's really unfortunate when you preorder 2 cases and it's 4+ weeks old before you even pick it up. And if it's shipping today, why does it take 2+ weeks to hit the shelves?

    How can they have it in Arizona but I can't buy any in Minnesota yet? Someone explain beer distribution to me because that makes no sense.

    Some people get beer before other people. And other people get beer before some people. Everyone should drink beer. Beyond that, my mind explodes.

    Am I missing something with this beer? I grab a 6 pack each year and wonder why I dont just by Odells, Laugnitas, Abrasive or something I can get easily. How much of this beer is just hype? Most of it?

    I talked to my friendly beer store guy last year and he had someone bitch because they bought a case somewhere else that was bottled 14 days prior to the one he was looking at in his store.

    For those who buy at Dennis Brothers every year, they're having their pre-sale this week. $13.88/six pack can't be beat!

    right, but what are the bottling dates? If I knew they'd be (relatively) fresh, I'd hop all over it. But last year's were nearly a month old before we even picked them up. I'll spend the extra $2.11 on fresh Hopslam.

    Matt, you should buy Odells. Please. In fact, everyone should ignore this release and buy Odells ipa instead. Please.

    OK, I will ignore. Just need one bottle anyway.

    Nope, I'd take either. If I want honey in something, I will buy some Honeynut Cheerios
