    This is the first event I have seen. Honestly haven't seen much news on this at all since GF picked them up. Anybody have any other Alpine in Florida news? I've gotten quite a few of their beers in trades and always enjoyed them.

    Apparently the link I posted isn't working? Tavern On Main in Sarasota is having an Alpine Night on July 10.

    I guess they ramped up production pretty quick. Did green flash ever open that east coast brewery yet?

    Not yet. I'm privledged to be a brand ambassador for GF and got to spend some time with Mike Hinkley last weekend. GF brews a small amount of Alpine at their facility in SD and will brew it here in VA once they open in the first qtr of 2016. They are hopefully breaking ground within the next month.

    After the brewery opens, they will look to build Cellar 3 and their sour building as well. Everything they are doing in CA, they will eventually do in VA Beach. After talking to Mr. Hinkley, he hinted that they would brew the "rarer" Alpine barrel-aged beers here as well. I can only cross my fingers for that.

    Alpine will be hitting Florida in July. Look out for events all over the state. One time release until we open the new brewery in VA Beach next year.

    Cheers!

    I hope once they open up in VA, we'll get some of their beers in SC

    If BA would allow a meme post it would have that little boy celebrating saying "Doesn't matter. Got Alpine."

    Alpine tested the northern virginia market with some draft beers earlier this year. I hear rumors they will have wider distro beginning in august. Is that true? Will there be bottles?

    We are testing several states this year. Wider distribution will come when the Va Beach brewery is built. Limited amount of bottles will come sometime this year, it is unknown when.

    I don't think Alpine did well in NoVA. I saw Duet on tap at a place by me and after two weeks it was still not kicked yet. Though, it wasn't publicized at all and nobody knew about it. I feel like all the attention is being paid to the flood of beers from Ballast Point and Deschutes, who, in the case of BP, have expanded distro remarkably around here or, in the case of Deschutes, entered this market recently.

    If anyone hears about Nelson being on tap anywhere in Central FL, let us know.

    Proof Brewing Co in Tallahassee had an Alpine night at their original location last week with Duet and Hoppy Birthday. My guess is it hasn't kicked but plan to investigate later this week!

    This is much closer than Sarasota...might have to check it out, even with no Nelson.
