    Really looking forward to the bigger pumpkin beers this year. I was hoping to find it in Danville or Lexington before it sells through. It always seems to go fast. Thanks for any help.

    You know, we don't see a ton of Arcadia in Lexington. Or New Holland. A few things, but not much. Not that I'm complaining. Just an observation.

    Probably true. I might have wasted some money on the Mad Hatter series of 22 ounce bottles, though, if they were around.

    Every now and then we're in Louisville. But then I waste my money on imports we don't see here (though, thanks to Shenanigans, we are seeing more and more quality Shelton imported products).

    We got our first run of Pumking in Southern Indiana yesterday. Small amount now, and quite a bit coming in the beginning of September.

    I've enjoyed a couple of the New Holland Hatter series. The oaked hatter and the white hatter were really good. I've not tried the black or rye yet.
     
  17. Haven't seen any in Northern KY yet, but I just got back from Jungle Jim's in Fairfield, OH and they had a ton of it. I expect to see it here any day now.

    Still no sign of the Pumking in Lexington. I stopped at two LB's and Whole foods on Sunday. I did find some Great Lakes Octoberfest and Schlafly Pumpkin at those locations though. It was a nice consilation overall.

    Looks like Pumpking is in Lexington.
     
  21. Pumking has FINALLY arrived here in Northern KY too. Just saw on Party Source's (Bellevue) website that it is IN STOCK ('bout damn time!).

    I never buy that much of this beer, but I do like to have a bottle to drink on Halloween night.
     
  22. We'll never get it here in Owensboro. Our local Bud distributor has the rights to Southern Tier, O'Fallon, Sierra Nevada, GI, etc and absolutely REFUSE to order anything from those brands (except 312, Honkers, SN PA). I've been fighting a battle with them for nearly 3 years now. You don't know how frustrating it is to hear of everyone else getting GI Bourbon County while I sit here with my dick in my hand. Nonetheless, I order less and less from them every single day!
