    They're $15 apiece at the brewery so if you're paying less than that, good on ya.

    I wonder if an FV13 and a Merveilleux pair could pull something fancy now or if I'd have to wait a bit?...

    THat I'm surprised. Total WIne doesn't get many limited releases, or am I not looking at them close enough?

    The brewery was out when I was there a few weeks ago but, my local got one case, (6 bottles), and I got one for 12.99. Would love to have had more.

    I supposedly got the last one Saturday night, but a call to them Sunday yielded "four left". Not so sure I believe it but one will do me fine.

    I was lucky enough to find one of these that someone had tucked away behind some other random stuff.. Nice try!

    Maybe I should check out the one in Alpharetta too...hrrmmm...it definitely did not stay long in the ATL, and I actually never saw FV-13 on shelves.

    I called them after Perimeter, they said they were out. It was behind the counter at the growler station, so maybe the sales clerk just looked on the shelf and didn't check with anyone else, and maybe there's a few still stashed. Doubt it seriously though, one of our regulars used to work at Total and he bragged at how all the employees scored stuff first, so few of it actually made it out for sale. Their four cases of Bell's 11 all went to employees save for a six pack.

    FV13 didn't make it to shelves either, and I think there was even less of it.

    Yeah, it's pretty brutal in the ATL for a lot of places just like that. If I happen to find any I'll post here...but like you said haven't gotten anywhere.

    This just showed up at the local spot in RI a week or two ago. $12.99.

    FV13 never did make it on the shelf. I had to ask for it to get me one.

    The Bells 11 was all "rare and shit" early. Then I came back a couple weeks later and there was a shit ton on the shelves at greens as single ironically. Damn good beer though.

    Keep looking but I suspect it's gone. Greens on Ponce got 12 bottles. When a store like that, gets only that much.. it's rare.

    I thought this beer was excellent. Better than fv13

    Here's hoping it shows up as often in the ATL on draft as FV-13 has!

    I didn't think so, but it's still a solid sour.

    I happened to be next to greens when they tweeted out they had some... got the Merveilleux and some Harvest Ale, it was a very nice visit to the beer store.

    spoke to the allagash rep for the SE at the Fred (ATL) on Tuesday night....looks like the new coolships will be making it's way with more quantity to the SE in general, but especially here. He also said he thinks Merveilleux will be good anytime between now and a couple years. Not sure I can wait that long to drink the only one I could find...

    Yeah, I got 2 4 packs of the Harvest since I missed out on the Allagash. Good score, enjoy it!

    That's about how much I see ALL Allagash bottles for, and the reason I have never bought one! Bummed because many of them sound delicious!!

    Apparently this showed up here last month...lol. Where was I? Oh well...

    Also when I spoke to the rep he said that Allagash made this in MUCH smaller quantities than FV-13 as well. That might explain why it was so hard to get...I also believe this was not kegged either...so there goes my hope of Merveilleux on draft :grimacing:

    That sucks man. We readily sell the majority of their 750s for $15.99, with maybe a few (Interlude, Victor, Victoria) breaking that mark. I know you don't want to pay it, but everything they do is pretty awesome. Save up a few bucks and get a Four sometime, you'll be glad you did.
