La Crosse has it, sipping one right now and it is glorious
How much was the Big John? Thought that was around the $10-12 range when it came out.
I guess I mean relatively ridiculous. 50% markup from the range you mentioned.
How far north?
Green bay. Bought 2 cases of red for friends yesterday
Hey bro. I just found it today in stores today and I'm drinking one right now. They deviate from their release schedule a lot. Cheers!
What's your local store in Green Bay? I'm headed to Dunbar on Weds for the weekend.
I picked some up in Milwaukee today and heard that while Belgian red is being put on hold for the next year, they are apparently brewing up a new 750mL bottle called serendipity (or serenity) made with crabberries for distro mid-October..
No Enigma at Woodman's in Kenosha. (Or the Brat Stop, though they may not even carry the Thumbprint beers -- didn't see any Saison there this afternoon.)
Woodman's Kenosha seems to have a decent stock of Belgian Red, though.
They must have restocked the Belgian Red. I was there yesterday and they had none. The Enigma should be there on Monday or Tuesday. They are on the same delivery schedule as the store I work at.
Picked up some Enigma at Discount in Milwaukee today. Also figured I would share a fun fact for anyone who is interested: Three Cellars in Franklin has Dieu du Ciel Aphrodite bottles on the shelf for $5.99 (haven't seen that beer around in about a year so I thought I would try and share the love a bit).
For once I wasn't a day late, then. And I don't feel a dollar short at Wisconsin prices! (Have to love that Great Lakes Octoberfest was $1.20 a sixer cheaper than Chicago's big chain, Capital was three bucks cheaper and Founder's four packs two bucks cheaper -- without a case discount. Plus, yaknow, New Glarus.)
Discount in Milwaukee (W Oklahoma) had it - picked up 4 and 6 bottles of belgian red before flying back to San Diego today - pretty friendly store too.
High 5's and cheese curds bitch!!
this beer sure is tasty!
I can't wait to find some and give it a try.
And by crabberries, I meant cranberries. Unless my phone subconsciously knows more than me and there actually is a berry made from crabs...
I was really looking forward to some "crabberries"
*still waiting for some in GB*
Will be getting my haul in fish creek tomorrow. I'm sure once ridge view getsbit they'll have it for a while.
Hey nate! I was just at the brewery on friday and picked up a case from the NG beer depot. It was stacked up to the roof in the beer depot. You can go get some now!
Bah still waiting for GB to get some!
Picked up 2 cases today. One for me and the other for trading partners. This is hands down one of my favorite New Glarus beers.
Will there be a Thumbprint Enigma for rating or is it under the Unplugged?
Just picked this up in Wisconsin. Never had it before but it is very good, up there with Raspberry tart. No way it's 5.5% though like is listed on here. I'm guessing more like 7-9%
What are the chances that there will still be some Enigma around in 2 weeks when I go to Madison for the weekend?
Just hit green bay today.
I bet if you look hard enough you'll be able to find some, I don't see this going off the shelves immediately a la BCBS
Its in all the grocery stores in Madison now. Everyone I have been to I see it. It will be around for another month before it starts to disappear. At $10 a 4 pack, not many grocery store patrons purchase it.
Or, if you're going to be in Madison and can't find it at Woodman's on the Belt Line, drive the 30 minutes to New Glarus.
Just grabbed a 4-pack last night in Appleton, first time trying it. Nummy nummy, in my tummy!
Does anyone know if Woodman's in Kenosha got this in yet?
I picked some up on Wednesday, but when I was there yesterday it was nowhere to be found. (Don't judge how often I go there...)
Just bought some on my lunch. Now I have to wait until I am off work to try it...
Never tried this one before--love to get a 4 pack if anyone's coming through Chicago. IP trade/cash + extras, let me know!
Is it confirmed available as of today at woodmans Kenosha? Also plenty available?
FYI: one of my friends got me a whole case at Mars Cheese Castle yesterday. Said there was plenty.
Ditto for the Kenosha Woodman's.
Crud hopefully it lasts... Making a trip up this weekend! Anyone else want some?
Finally got to try it tonight. What a fantastic and delicious beer. The sour punch at the beginning is really something.
