    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
     
  2. 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

    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.

    The first 5 are certain from their beer camp blog, the rest are my guesses from what's written on the box.

    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.

    interesting it showed up in Costco's. I thought it would have been a bit more specialty that that...

    I wonder how long before it'll appear in SC.

  14. 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.

    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.

    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.

    Hit San Jose. The only bummer is that the THREE Floyd's pale ale wad bottled on May 15. Which is the oldest beer is the mix.

    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

    Sounds like a well-thought-out and well-designed distribution. Looking forward to getting our packs in Wisco!

    I went through the twelve over the past few days. I want to agree with that other guy. None were crap. But none were outstanding. They were at that 'par for the course' level the majority of craft beer is at.. Think 78-88 BA score. All very forgettable IMHO.. The few reviews on BA seem about right. My guess is that none hit above a BA 88.

    My bottles were packaged early June with a few late May. So I don't know if that had any factor. Or the fact you hear these great breweries, and the finished product isn't as WOW worthy as you had envisioned.

    IMHO, not worth $2/bottle that my shop was selling them at ($24 for 12). $16-$20 seems more feasible.

    Costco is probably a great place to find this because they wont break up the 12-packs. Many shops are threatening to do so...
