    I'm sure that the liquor store near me will grace me with the opportunity to buy it for +/- $30.

    That sucks. Pugachev's Cobra was only $17.99/bottle at Total Wine. $30/bottle for Hammerhead? #FleecingOfAmerica.

    lol

    I don't know what it will be but $30 seems to be the new price for anything with "barrell" in the name.

    I expect some Whole Foods and other local shops will have it on the shelf. Funny, Cobra was just sitting there for days as I eventually picked up a half dozen of them anywhere between $16.99 to $18.99

    Shelf whales, brah.

    I wasn't sure if I should reply to the 2nd Post or yours... Either/Or you are correct.

    Also correct that there is less than last yr. 40 cases for OC.

    Little bit hot fresh, but IMO ages better than sucaba. Opened a bottle around the pugachevs release and the heat had faded a bit without losing much barrel character. Ymmv.

    Age it. The beer is a bit hot when fresh and mellows out a bit later on.

    I walked into Whole Foods in Tustin yesterday. There were 6 bottles at $17.99 on the shelf.

    TotalWine Brea still has about 10/12th of a case left in their walk-in cooler. The box is just sitting there, alone, unmarked, unloved...

    ha. well, it is hanger 24. A brewery who isn't known for whale bait trade fodder, so of course it gets glossed over.

    Thankfully those of us who like amazing beer know what's up.

    Hammerhead is liquid gold.

    I picked up a bottle at Totalwine Brea. There's about 4 or 5 bottles left.

    They must be keeping the rest in the back then because I was there again last night and the shelf spot was still empty.
