    How much of the beer consumed here is utter garbage though?

    No problem with driving to Hudson, you have. That is the reason.

    Deschutes would do great with me, as it is right now I drive across the border to pick up a different 6's of theirs. I am sure I would pick up a lot more if it were avaliable at my normal store. Just like NG, all of the regular beer they make are just outstanding which is what I really want from a good brewert. I do not want average 6 packs and then once a year a great release.

    That's the market to be carved out from. Isn't sales of shite beer falling while craft is increasing?

    I hope this happens sooner than later. I have only had Speedway Stout once, but it gave me a boner.

    Wisconsin went from New Glarus and Oskar Blues hauls to New Glarus and Ale Smith if this comes true. I still have a few bombers I bought awhile back of Ale Smith, but I really want as much Numbskull to age as possible. After trying it fresh it tasted like it would be amazing aged a year or two.

    And who doesnt love them some Speedway or Wee Heavy?

    I asked Star Liquor in Madison to check into it:

    "Word from the distributor is "sometime soon". I'm on it whenever "soon" arrives."

    I get an updated list from beechwood every week, was praying I would see alesmith on it. Odd that Green Flash made it first....I wonder what the hold up is?

    Heard from good source at distributor that target time for Alesmith is around Labor Day,which is fine because their beers aren't typically hot sticky summer types

    Looks like AleSmith will be landing earlier, keep an eye out for bottles to land in early August (with a limited draft appearance)!

    Huh? Stone doesn't distribute to WI. I agree that Espresso RIS is very good.

    That is correct, plus X, IPA, Horny Devil, Grand Cru and some others...

    Alesmith bottles made it to Stevens Point today. I picked up a bottle of Speedway Stout, Grand Cru, and Horny Devil. Looking forward to trying them.

    I've had the pleasure of trading for most of the reg line up. I hope the Wee Heavy makes it way soon!

    I heard its on the shelves in Stevens Point, going down tonight or tomorrow since I doubt anyone in Wausau would get it

    Little late to the party, but picked up Speedway and IPA at Woodman's today. Glad to have them and hope BA Speedway makes it this way.

    The odds of you seeing anything other than what is on the shelf now (outside of yulesmith and decadence) are roughly 0%. Seeing BA Speedway is slightly below 0%

    Oak Creek. They've got it set aside on its own shelf.

    Just had my first speedway stout and all I have to say is I will single handedly support this brewery in WI if I have to just so I can keep buying this beer. Look forward to trying more of their beers.

    Don't forget- they might bring it over here on draft. They did bring the very first keg of Speedway variant to leave San Diego over here.

    Went to the Alesmith Launch at B+B last night in Windlake. 6 different bombers,Abby is a wonderful Company Rep,beers were all fresh and delicious,and surprisingly great prices. The Speedway was spectacular. I told Abby I hoped that Wisconsin would continue to get fresh product,she assured me that they would never reroute older beer to our state. And yes,small allotments of the barrel aged brews would find their way here
