Discussion in 'Midwest' started by minnesotaryan, May 15, 2013.

  1. could use one for a bif, not really looking to trade for one, so a shop with some still would be ideal.

    Saw a few at Thomas Liquor on Saturday. This was a month or so back but there was a liquor store down in lowertown by the farmers market that was selling it for $12.99.

    I can't remember the name of that liquor store but it's really a nice little shop, great selection and sort of hidden away. I think it was on 5th st.

    That little shop in lowertown, it's called Lowertown Wine & Spirits. I have no idea where they came up with the name, you'd think they'd give it something that people could remember;)

    Ya'd think... my excuse is I was in a hurry and they had Surly Smoke and it was 3 years ago... (still no excuse but like real names I'll forget it until I meet you at least 3 times).

    If you are in the south metro, MGM in Hastings has one left (as of Saturday, I'm sure it's still there) it was $21.99 I believe.

    At that price point, it's no wonder. Crazy.

    Not really, they get it from a distributor.

    For people still looking, Harbor Wine & Liquor in Mound has more than 6 bottles left @ $23.49. Team Liquor in Shorewood still might have some as well. There have been 6 bottles in their cooler since the release $23.99.

    Douggo Savant (330) Minnesota Oct 24, 2009

    Can confirm Harbor in Mound. They also had a few sixers of Sucks.
  20. Cub Liquor in Arden Hills has some left. i believe it was 18.99.

    You can't swing a dead cat without hitting Pentagram in the Bloomington area. Coming from someone on the inside of coolers, the Surly bigs are starting to languish, whether it be price, inventory, or the public being bored. They just don't whip people up any more.

    Not sure I agree. I don't see any darkness or syx still on the shelves. I think pentagram sits because it's a sour, bit more polarizing of a style
  24. BarrelAgedBarry

    BarrelAgedBarry Savant (345) Minnesota Feb 27, 2012 Beer Trader

    Also I heard they made around 14,000 bottles of Pentagram. Somebody correct me if I'm wrong with that.

    The distributor never got any in yet. We have only received cans & kegs at Johnson Brothers.

    ^^^i got mine for $17.99

    I found ONE at the Big Discount in Maplewood... And I bought (and enjoyed) it immediately.

    Sorry if I can't be of any more help.

    anyone know if these are still around? making my first visit to the twin cities the week of june 10th...I will be there for an entire week. I could also trade some FFF, barrel aged revlolution, pipeworks, half acre, etc beers IP if anyone has a Pentagram they are looking to swap for something.

    Jermy, at last look, Pentagram was still around some west/northwest shops, because they go through a distributor, & the price was significantly higher ($21-26). So if you have a car, or are going to be staying anywhere up there, you have a pretty good chance at finding it if you're willing to pay a bit of a premium.

    Princeton's had one bottle left when i was in on friday. 23.99

    Thanks for the info. I will have a car and hopefully will be able to land some.
  33. Icarus

    Icarus Savant (270) Minnesota Oct 6, 2012

    I will look again, but as of Saturday they still had 1 at the MGM in Hastings (south east metro) $21.99 I think it was.

    I also agree that sours don't fly off the shelves like some of the other offerings, it seems (to me anyway) either people love them or don't like them at all. I am in the latter category.

    Im heading into minnesota this week and have been instructed to try to find pentagram. My guess is that it's pretty much gone. If anyone knows of a store that still has some or is interested in a trade let me know. I have access to three floyds and have a bottle or two of pliney in my fridge currently. Thanks.

    I was in Liquor Boy a few days ago and they still had a bunch left. I would bet that it will still be there this weekend.
  37. Premier in Osseo has some

    Anyone seen any '13 still hanging around in any shops in the Twin Cities? A friend from Michigan is coming out and would like to try it. Or if anyone has an extra and wants to work something out, send me a message.

    MNPikey Advocate (600) Minnesota Feb 27, 2011 Beer Trader

    Saw some on the shelf recently (last couple weeks) but can't remember where exactly. Went to Thomas today thinking it was there but they are sold out. They did have '12 and '13 Smoke though.
