SN Narwhal in CO?

Discussion in 'US - Mountain' started by arminjewell, Nov 4, 2012.

  1. Has anyone seen this around? More specifically in the South Denver area would be great, but just curious if anyone has heard or seen it around. Thanks!
  2. So far no Narwhal, no Celebration

    Celebration is in FoCo, haven't seen Narwhal.

    Narwhal showed up in Casper yesterday at 1 store; bought me a 4 pack. Drinking one now.

    What'd you think? Had one on draft today it was a bit too roasty for my taste.

    Had it at GABF and am definitely looking forward to it.
    Dig the crap outta that label, too.

    I liked that roasty goodness.

  9. Any Narwhal sightings in Boulder yet?

    I don't want to cause an unnecessary stir, because I think there will be plenty of this, but I picked up a 4-pack in Colorado Springs last weekend, and it is really, really tasty. Definitely get it while you can. About $18/4-pack.

    That's more than Ten FIDY, crazy!

    That price seems A LOT more expensive that what I've seen in other regions. Hopefully it's just a shafty store in the Springs. It's available from distro now, but stores seem to be waiting to clear other beers out - really hoping they're not waiting until Celebration is gone...
  13. Damn, I was hoping for much closer to Bigfoot prices on these.

    <$11 a 4 pack in Casper.
  15. Really I saw it at 18 too, I just picked up a mint chocolate stout instead.

    $18 cannot be Sierra Nevada's suggested retail price...no way!

    One of the distributors gave a wrong price. It's 9.99 now. I'd go back there and ask for refund. Celebration is in the Springs as well.

    I was going to say. No way would SN put a price point on that beer like that. Them and Lagunitas bring some of the best prices in the industry. $10.99 a 6 pack for Shugga at 9.9% and damn tasty

    1 store here sells 'em for $9.50. Since we don't get North Coast brews, I consider Narwhal the Old Rasputin of Casper. Great beer/great price.

    Rasputin to me is one of the Most underrated beers. If it was a seasonal people would be shitting themselves to get it, Again, IMO.

    I also picked up a 4 pack of G'Knight tall boys today. Also saw Singles of Dales pale ale in the 19.2 tall boy..

    I do not disagree with your post. I haven't seen the tall cans from OB yet but I'm sure they will come.

    It's not the stores. The distributor (Coors) just doesn't have it available yet for some reason. Seems we've been getting SN releases a lot later than everywhere else ie. Beer Camp, Celebration, Northern Hemisphere Wet Hop (which just hit this week).

    I once thought I saw a Unicorn. . . but it must have just been a regular horse. :confused:

    Yeah I've had my eyes on this one too, if it does come out at around 10 bucks that'll be amazing. I might stock up. I expect us to get a good amount of this eventually. Suprised we don't have it yet, as even some east coast states are boasting about it. Bummer for our distro.

    joshclauss Savant (305) Colorado Oct 31, 2010

    I was just visiting, so no dice on that. Good news is it's tasty enough that I don't mind the price I paid one bit.
  27. I've called a few places around the Springs w/o any luck...any suggestions on a specific store?
  28. Veteran's on austin bluffs and academy
  29. You sir are a gentleman and a scholar. Thanks for the lead. Here's a few hours worth of work between Veteran's and Cork & Bottle.

    Got a call today that it hit Coors (distributor). 120 cases. Should show up to stores that get deliveries tomorrow and if not then early next week.

    Where'd you see the kickin chicken?
  36. I picked up the above Kickin Chickin at Veteran's, but I saw a ton of it at Cork & Bottle today. And back to thread topic, they had some Narwhal as well.

    Narwhal is excellent. Veteran's had a bunch as of today.

    Same here! Can't wait, waiting so long for it will make that first sip that much more worth it.
