    Anybody still carry these? I know the Bruery Provisions had it as recently as last year, but they've since stopped carrying these. Anyone know of a store that sells these in LA County/OC?

    Thanks.

    I've seen it at a number of stores lately. Stearns Liquor and Total Wine to name a couple. The price keeps going up though. I remember picking this one up for $3.99 a couple years back but not I'm seeing it for $5-6.

    Haven't been having a whole lot of luck with this one so far. Tried Stearns a couple of times with no luck, and called Whole Foods Tustin but wasn't able to get through to the beer rep. I talked to the guy at Stearns, who said that Peche's largely dried up here in SoCal, and it arrives in waves, and is snatched up quickly when it does arrive.

    Anybody know of a retailer that carries it right now? I haven't seen it anywhere yet. I'd call around more, but I want to see if I could turn to the wisdom of the BA masses for sightings one more time before doing so.

    If all else fails, I'd be happy to trade for a few reasonably fresh bottles. If you have bottles on hand less than, say, 4 months old, and you can meet me sometime in Whittier, Downey, Fullerton, Long Beach, or any city adjacent to one of these, I'd be happy to try and work something out. Message me.

    Thanks in advance.

    Bump. Anyone?
  13. total wine tustin had a few bottles as of a couple hours ago.
  14. They haven't sent any out for distribution in the last 10 months that I know of. Dieu Du Ciel beers are distributed by the4 Shelton Brothers in the US and it hasn't been listed on the so-cal list for a long time. I have a very limited number of bottles left at Steingarten LA on the bottle list for on-premise consumption. It is also available on the bottle list at Beachwood BBQ. I really love that beer! I think it's one of the most underrated coffee stouts in the world.

    Mmm, Aphrodite, like a beer milkshake in the best possible way. And Peche Mortel, what can you say that hasn't been said? Enjoy!
