    Yes. St. Augustine.
  4. Yep. Tampa has some. Luekens carries Barrel Aged Chipotle Porter, Hoppy Easter, Funky Star, Jackie Brown, Monks Brew, and a couple more I cant remember. I havent seen any new Mikkeller in a while though.

  5. It's around sporadically down here in Palm Beach County, but frankly I have only had one or two that were anywhere near worth the price.

    Beer Geek Breakfast Weseal was Awesome!
  7. That's one of them I thought was worth it. :)
  8. I remember first seeing Mikeller in FL in the Tampa area probably around a year ago. Unfortunately the selection was very limited. And Ive actually only even seen in at Leukens, like Brian said above.
  9. Should I be worried that you know my name and I have no idea who you are? 0_o
  10. Only if you are scared of people who can read. Or more specifically, people who CANT read, as I thought Braineater said Brian haha

    You won't be seeing new Mikkeller for a little while so what you find is it for now. Mikkeller's importer, Shelton Brothers, has pulled out of most if not all of the state temporarily. Word is Shelton are starting their own distribution and will return on their own in the future.
  13. Well I would use this time to stalk up on Mikkeller beers, but unfortunately I didn't win that $300million Powerball, so I don't think I can afford to do it. Damn are their beers pricey (albeit generally very good).

    Has anyone seen Mikeller for sale at a retail location in Orlando or Jacksonville?
  16. fwiw, I lived in orlando for 6 years and never saw Mikkeller there.

    I talked to Mikkeller and they basically told me Florida is a crapshoot. It's imported by Shelton Brothers and up to them where it winds up.

    I saw some at the Orange Blossom Knightly Spirits in Orlando a few weeks ago.... I don't remember which one, I think maybe it was a Christmas Ale
  20. Saw Mikkeller's Santa's Little Helper at TW Millenia in Orlando a few weeks back

    I got their Tiger Baby IPA in Jacksonville. I can't remember the name of the store, but it was pretty sweet bottle shop.

    I was at the House of Brews in Jensen Saturday eve and they have Rauch Geek Breakfast on tap. I did not check for bottles.

    WOB Dadeland had 5 different mikkeller in draft today, seen a few bottles around lately as well.

    We should be seeing more of it now thanks to Progressive Distribution. That's a name not an adjective lol.

    outsidah Aficionado (150) Florida Feb 6, 2011

    Yeah, I've noticed my TW has started carrying stuff from them now.

    TWs in Broward/South Florida seem to have some of their beers: was at one within the past week and they had the following:

    Draft Bear
    Jackie Brown
    Green Easter
    Monk's Brew

    You're looking at $13.49 a 750 or $8.49 for a 330 mL. For that reason I haven't picked up any. I do want to try one of the beers from the Beer Geek series though.
  29. jivex5k

    jivex5k Advocate (550) Florida Apr 13, 2011

    That's not crazy expensive but honestly every Mikkeller beer I've had besides beer geek has been underwhelming. Just not sour enough sours.
  30. outsidah

    outsidah Aficionado (150) Florida Feb 6, 2011

    Yeah not enough of a fan to pick them up at that price point unless something really caught my attention which so far hasn't happened.

    jivex5k Advocate (550) Florida Apr 13, 2011

    What bothers me even more is it's not even a real brewery.

    Stopped by the OBT location of Knightly Spirits yesterday, and they had a ton of Mikkeller.

    4packs of Mikkeller hitting Tampa tomorrow along with Hommage! Woot woot.
  34. They sell various Mikkeller at Grassroots and Total Wine.

    Dag48 Aficionado (205) Florida Oct 9, 2013

    Knightly Spirits seems to be the only place in Orlando with any Mikkeller at all. I was pretty impressed by everything they had considering I'm not used to seeing any around here.
  36. joemochas

    joemochas Savant (280) Florida Nov 1, 2008

    same here.

    Just passed by there today. The amount of Mikkeller they have is ridiculous compared to TW and ABC. They even had a case of Prairie Birra. I don't think I've seen any Prairie anywhere else in Orlando.

    Coffee District in Delray Beach carries Mikkeller on the reg.

    [And by reg I mean 'regular', for the non-hip.]

    The best Mikkeller beer was a collab... oh wait...
