    Anyone know what Ballast Point beers the new Binny's in Champaign carries? Going to pick up my son next month and hoping to find Sculpin.
    Thanks

    Thanks Vav. Do you know if they ever get Sculpin?

    Can't speak for the Champaign Binnys since it wasn't open when I was going to school, but Friar Tuck / Corkscrew / Sunsinger would always have it in stock when it was released in the area (which used to be about 3-4x a year).

    However, my friends in central IL and northwest IL (Rockford / Dekalb) haven't reported seeing Sculpin available in quite some time.

    Wish you luck!

    Thanks Gonzo - I will check with them too as it gets closer to when I pick him up.

    dman, I work at Binny's down here in Champaign. Our rep said that they only get enough to give their accounts 1 case every couple months. We ran through our first case back in february when we first opened. Hopefully we will get more here soon, but as of right now we don't have Sculpin. Check back with me before you come down.
