    There were 1000 bottles of fv13 available for sale in the retail store. There was about the same number of this latest batch of resurgam for sale, and it is still avilable. FV should be around the shop for a while.

    There is also about 9000 bottles of FV13 going out into distribution.

    Awesome, thanks a ton for the information. Sounds like I should be good on FV 13. Now I'll just need to hope that Resurgam lasts one more week!

    Thanks. $13 is lower than I thought for a beer aged 4 years! Not cheap by any means but similar to Cantillon or 3F.

    I'm hoping for another 3 weeks on the Resurgam...I have 3 now but they're all spoken for...still haven't even tried it myself...and I'd love to be able to hook up my girl's cousin with a bottle.

    NJ is listed on the map, and we get plenty of Allagash down here, but I was just told by a local store, who called the Allagash distributor for all of NJ, that it is not being released in NJ. She also said it was only for sale at the brewery, which seemed like misinformation to me. This store carries a lot of craft beer, but they don't really know craft beer, if you know what I mean.

    She may be confused since their 375ml sours are usually brewery only.

    She was surly confused, but her info came from the distributor, who should know better. I will hunt this stuff down! Worst case I will drive to Maine - it's my favorite damn place in the world anyway.

    Found it in Portsmouth, NH yesterday. Slowly making it's way around. Definitely worth it to pick up a bottle or two if you can.

    Picked up 2 bottles at Amity in CT for $13 a bottle. With 6 bottles to a case and less than 30 cases to go around. Grab one if you see it. Delicious.

    Today there were 4 crates each of FV13 and Resurgam on the floor at the brewery store, but they said that's the last of the Resurgam.

    Good Beer in NYC has some for $17.99/bottle. A little too expensive for me for a 375ml bottle.

    I had this at Novare REs in Portland back in the Fall. It's delicious! I don't see why we wouldn't get bottles of this since we seem to get tons of Allagash stuff here. I'm with you, btw. Maine is one of my favorite places to visit.
