    Total Wine posted on their Facebook page that they have a keg of The Abyss.

    I called and talked to the guy at the growler station and he confirmed that they had it......$14.99 for a 64oz growler.

    Wow. That is a goddamn steal! (but I'm nowhere near Spokane, so... shit.)

    I usually get growlers of Abyss at Waddel's for $12 growler, just look around town.

    Hill's has '10-'12 vert on tap right now. $10 for a 6oz pour of each - a steal of a deal.

    cheers

    I heard about that vert last night. And $12 is crazy! Thanks dude!
     
  5. Yeah, I went and had it Saturday. Great deal on that vertical.

    I've done the vertical at Hill's, but had no idea about the growler price! Are you sure that Steve wasn't doing a special deal for you, or one of his minions didn't charge you the correct price? $12 growlers of Abyss is crazy!

    Steve didn't do a special deal for me - the growler was at Waddel's last year and the year before. Not Hill's.

    Steve would never sell Abyss in the growler.

    My bad.

    Didn't catch Waddell's name when I read that. Possibly my brain was still reeling from the thought of a $12 Abyss growler anywhere on the planet.

    Or maybe it was the double dry-hopped tricerahops I'd had at Jones
