    I've ordered 2X from france44 in the last few weeks, I always verbal order not on line. Carin said they will no longer ship to Pa and NJ, new laws. I've ordered for my dad to Pa for years, and now I'm done unless i stuff beer into a box for him which I wont do. The web sights are out of date as is the beer list, I'd suggest calling france44 and simply asking for Carin, she's great.

    Got my France44 order in this morning. That place is incredible with FRESH beer. Placed my order on January 8th and the Abrasive was canned on January 8th!

  3. I wanna know where you shop at - I haven't seen Furious less than $10 a 4pk (I guess I never really look for it though).
    And Lag Sucks is not similar to Abrasive IMHO...way more quaff-able.

  4. Liquor Barrel in New Brighton has Furious for around $7.39 and Abrasive $14.99, I believe. I know other LB have Abrasive for $14.99, and Golden Valley LB gets Surly on Fridays, so Abrasive is either 1 or 3 days old. I used to buy Furious for $7.50 at Sid's Discount on 84th in Bloomington. Hope that helps.
     
  5. Duly noted, Thanks.

    LB in new Brighton is 7.99 for furious and 15.99 for abrasive. The owner keeps the furious cheap to draw In customers. Smart strategy. I bought the last founders imperial stout today though.

    Good for you, it's a tremendous DIPA, fully as good as HT, different, but as good.

    $5.50 a beer for a world class DIPA delivered to your door? Sounds good to me man, rock on.

    You can't beat that. $5.50 for a 16 oz can of 1st class. Cheaper than going to a bar any buying a decent brew.

    Exactly my point. I'd have been a hair annoyed if I missed this thread AND/OR not been checking France44 on a whim.

    Just picked up their last three 4-packs...until the next restock. Thanks for the heads up! Love France44 and have never had better in-person service at a liquor store. Completely happy to give them my business!
