    For sure! Maybe Three Floyds could make The Truly Permanent Funeral (an IIIPA). ;)

    referencing a recent thread, i bet that "new zealand pils" is going to be a "game changer." a really well done pils with new zealand hops is a *great* idea. my money is on it being the standout of the pack.

    ballast point should do something with hot peppers since they're so good at it.

    three floyds... don't know, don't care; everything i've had from them has been great.

    More updates on the Ninkasi collab for the Beer Camp series. It will be a milk coffee stout. Sound freaking awesome!

    Hailing from Eugene, OR, Ninkasi knows a thing or two about a great cup of joe. Coffee and craft beer are regarded with near religious fervor in the Pacific Northwest, so it’s natural to combine them. Featuring coffee from the venerable Oregon roasting company Stumptown, this milk coffee stout is a play on a latte, the ubiquitous café-counter favorite.

  4. Will these be distro'd by wholesalers that carry sierra nevada? For example, in my territory, Bell's and SN are carried by competing wholesalers - who's to carry the SN/Bell's porter?

    I would assume that because this is Sierra Neveda's Beer Camp Across America that it would be ultimately be released via their distributors and not the guest brewerys

    Omg I'm so excited I just found out about this so now I don't have to wait too long haha. Hope the distribution is pretty wide seems like it'd be hard to do that many great collabs and have it everywhere for a decent amount of time. Yet again they do have 2 breweries on each coast now. As does oskar blues so who knows
     
  7. That's awesome! Excited to see how these turn out -- especially the FFF and BP collaborations. While it's unlikely to be that similar to Zombie Dust, will still be good to get an sort of FFF exposure out West.

  14. Well that's a bit earlier than expected. Better price than I expected to see, although noting that you purchased from Costco. I was expecting something on the order of $25-30/box.
     
  15. interesting it showed up in Costco's. I thought it would have been a bit more specialty that that...

    great now I have to call or goto 2-3 costco a in my area, Orange County, and try to find it.
     
  17. I wonder how long before it'll appear in SC.

  18. It won't even start shipping to SC for a few more weeks. The release for this is staggered due to the immense logistical difficulties of getting these into market. Also, we're hoping for beer to be in-stores as the Beer Camp festivals roll through the area.

    That seems like a hell of a price
     
  31. Big display at Whole Foods in Cupertino. $24.99 per box, with the commemorative DIPA bombers for $5.99. As always, thanks to Ken for keeping his products reasonably priced.

  32. Hmm... Hadn't seen it in SoCal, but maybe they're waiting a little bit on it due to the event being here? Either way, will be on the lookout.

    Still damn good. I've only had a few of them. I read somewhere somebody saying that none of the beers were outstanding. My first sip proved that guy wrong. The Chico King is awesome
