Yup, right there in the original post.
shoulda added the Milwaukee part
We will be featuring:
Grunion (2014 GABF Gold Medal - Pale Ale)
Sorry if I missed it, but where is this happening?
I haven't had my bar listed on any of the signage I have gotten from Wirtz yet either... Milwaukee I am guessing?
It's at 8th Street Ale Haus in Sheboygan.
Ha, I guess the venue is important!! Did not realize it was not on the poster!
It is, in fact, 8th Street Ale Haus.
Winner will get the wall space to design however they would like.....I think a big high res Sculpin logo would look pretty nice up there!
I'll bite. Which easily obtainable shelf DIPAs are these? NG Scream is one of my favorite beers and it's $2.50 per. So roughly the same as Sculpin.
Sculpin is an IPA, Scream is a DIPA so not a fair comparison.
Ahhhh, I see now.
In Madison Karben4 Fantasy Factory is $8.99 a sixer. I guess I did pay $7 more for a sixer of Sculpin. It still equates to paying $4.90 a bomber...
Coming to the fox valley in a couple weeks. Am I going to be able to find victory at sea?
Ridgeview Liquor has Ballast Point (VaS I assume) right now. I would think Woodman's would as well...might not be anywhere else in Green Bay. Not sure.
Festival on Mason had it as of last saturday
Having a victory at sea right now that I bought in fox valley. Love this beer....so happy it's finally in our distro
It's a 2% abv difference. Seems like a fair comparison.
The verdict is in....both are pretty fantastic!
Please forgive photo quality, I snapped this in between snow blower sessions. We are at 8-10" at least right now!
Not gonna lie, fresh Sculpin is pretty good. Its been only 2 months since I've had it fresh at the taproom. Can we keep it this way (having fresh Sculpin on the shelves regularly)? I'm not so sure, but as far as IPAs readily available year-round in Madison, Wisconsin goes, this is pretty good stuff.
Agreed, when fresh this beer is fantastic and worth the price. The key will be whether we keep seeing fresh bottles/cans. Hoping it doesn't show up in huge quantities, I will be more than fine with gaps in availability if it means fresh stock.
That's the plan! Toeing the fine line of availability to ensure fresh date codes!
This will be one of the first chances to taste Grunion in WI!

Tiny amounts of Grapefruit hitting the SW side of state soemtime this week...*says little bird*
On tap or bottles/cans?
Any word on when grapefruit bottles will hit SE Wisconsin?
supposedly hit the state this week and is being distro'd out soon. The number i heard was 160 cases. can't confirm that through
In Madison today
Gah! Missed it.
I just got 2 bottles of grapefruit at Steve's McKee about 20 minutes ago. You have to ask, and are supposed to show the text on your phone, but he might let you buy them regardless.
Wait. So if I don't own a cell phone to receive texts, I'm not able to buy beer from this store?
I wouldn't worry too much about missing Grapefruit. At least to me, it has a somewhat artificial grapefruit flavor, and I much prefer regular Sculpin. Not that it isn't good, I just wouldn't chase it.
If you don't own a cell phone that receives texts you shouldn't be buying expensive beer.
You kidding me? If i didnt own a cell phone i could put that $100+ every month towards more expensive beer. Now to just convince the wife....
I was being facetious
I've shopped at that store quite frequently and never had to flash my decoder ring to get something they have in the back. I think I'll sit this one out...
