    Just finished the four pack I picked up over the holidays and I found it incredibly delicious- actually enjoyed it more than the FIS and FBS I've had over the last few weeks too. I haven't seen them in my usual bottle shops in Madison (Steve's University, Woodman's) and wondering if anyone's seen them in Madison, maybe even the Madison/Milwaukee or Madison/Rockford corridor as well.. so I can get some to stash in my cellar. Thanks in advance!

    Just in case anyone was interested, I stopped by Steve's University after work and had the presence of mind to ask if they had any Narwhal left. Seems that I got the last 4-pack hiding in the back cooler somewhere, and the store only got one case total. You'd think that SN would distribute more to WI- it's a rotating seasonal after all, and there's a ton of Bigfoot around town.

    I'm with u man. Narhwal is way better than FIS and FBS. It's definitely one of the best non BA imperial stouts ive had. Just bought a case of it the other day cuz I love it so much. There's plenty of narwhal left here in the western chicago burbs. Im surprised u cant find more over there. Just saw few cases @ 2 different liquor stores in the past 2 days.

    I bought a 4 pack at Riley's yesterday. It was the last one that they had out, they might have more in the back though.

    I'm in Waukesha this weekend (but live in Madison) and the discount liquor here has at least a few 4 packs. BM me if you want me to pick up some 4 packs for you.

    Steve, I'll check a couple of places out. If I see a 4 pk I'll grab it for you.

    Nah don't worry about it. I got my folks in Michigan to grab 2 4-packs and stash it in the basement till I visit them next. And I have the aforementioned 4-pack to drink over the next few weeks :)

    Yeah on a related note, Riley's just tweeted that there's no BA BigFoot coming to Wisconsin (maybe MKE). Not so much love for the land of beer and cheese. I guess we can be happy that we did get a bit of Narwhal and a decent amount of BigFoot in addition to the regulars.

    Some sad news, there will be no @SierraNevada barrel aged#BigFoot for Madison, or WI at all (maybe just Milwaukee). Maybe next time. :(
