    Thanks for the info Kyle. I have a feeling the Cape will probably not see any. You know how it is down here. If I am unable to find any by Wednesday I will drive up to the Blanchard's you are at. What time does your rep typically stop by? You can BM me the time if you feel it will avoid any chaos.

    p.s I miss the Grain and Vine although some stores have surprisingly stepped up their game in your absence here on Cape.

    Got a bottle in Arlington VA at Arrowine today -- supposedly only 12 6-bottle cases made it to VA, with half of those going to TWs.

    Red is up again next month (still brewery only). Good luck with SB1.

    Fortunate timing allowed me to snag one in MA. Hopefully I'll have the same luck with the coolship resurgam.

    Only if Allagash changes their plans in a significant way. Resugam and the other Coolships are brewery-only.

    That really was the last of the Resurgam, but I'm very sure there's more FV13 in the back room / sour building.

    not bad! I was expecting it to be a lot more. 13.00 at the brewery. i'm sure if my local gets it, it will sell for 17.00

    It came and went. I'm a beer manger at a store and Ridgefield came in gone in 2 hours. I managed to grab the last one.

    I dare say that it is as good as Resurgam (latest batch!), Interlude and fresh Gargamel, my three favorite Allagash beers.

    Anyone know when Prince Tuesday goes for sale? That immediately went to the top of my Allagash list last year.

    I picked up a bottle Friday evening in Atlanta, had no problems!

    Haven't cracked it yet, but it's looking to get some good reviews, pretty stoked.

    I had this a couple weeks back at the brewery. Absolutely awesome, I enjoyed it much more than the Interlude which surprised me.

    Our Allagash rep brought us a bottle after he learned the distributor didn't have enough allotment to send us any. Had it yesterday, it's awesome. Super funky. Really wishing we had gotten more because I'd love to sit on one for a year.

    Don't sit on the bottle! I learned the hard way. It will break, glass and brettanomyces everywhere.

    Based on your avatar it looks like you learned a valuable lesson from sitting on a bottle too
