    I wonder how much we'll be getting. In the main forum people are buying up cases. Sam's (Durham) had a 2 six pack minimum last year and it's the only shop I know that was allowing more than one at a time.

    Good point. WF in Winston is where I got mine last year. Also limited to 2 6ers.

    I think Sam's started at 1 case, then saw how fast it was going and dropped it to half a case. By the time the second drop rolled around at 7am the next day, it was 1 pack. That's when I got mine. It may have even been down to one pack late the afternoon of the first drop.

    I was at Sams on the day of release (just happened to be in the area). It was a 2 six pack limit from the moment it went on sale, I was one of the first people there. AWESOME bottle shop btw.

    I had been avoiding IPAs for a few months. Then Jade hit on draft and Sucks in bottles, so good...now I'm primed for HopSlam.

    According to Twitter it hits Atlanta today. Greens and Ale Yeah both said this afternoon; Hop City tomorrow. No idea about Total Wine, Minks, SWOB, etc.

    Looks like Hop City sold out in under an hour today. The craziness is getting crazier.

    last year, the total wines got a lot of this in stock (40-50 cases of it probably) and it was there for a while...is everyone down here in florida expecting it to go within the first couple days, or will we get a lot more allotment?

    if anyone on the eastside of the ATL missed out yesterday I probably have an extra sixer for cost.
