    Grabbed 2 4-packs yesterday. It's fantastic. Also had the Hops of Brixton on cask which was also fantastic

    Hoperbolic has made it on tap to Portland. Also some cans of Amalgamator dated 8/30.

    Yeah, but I'm not going to pass up a great WCIPA. I'm glad we get Beachwood up here every once in awhile.

    Blast from the freaking past: Control Malt Delete is on tap. Guess I'll have to go grab a pint and pick up a 4pk of the CCBA collab

    How was Zwanze? Worth making it over for leftovers…?

    I doubt there's anything left at this point except maybe the Brettrave Zwanze which tasted like garbage. Everything else was fantastic

    Fresh Simcoe. That smell always hits you in the nose when you first open the can. Fresh? Man.

    A couple years ago, my local bottle shop would get Citraholic and Amalgamator four-packs that were 1-4 days old, and I'd buy them all the time. Then that store closed, and almost anytime I find those on a shelf at other shops, they're 2-6 months old.

    I finally found some two-week-old Amalgamator a couple weeks ago. Such a treat.

    When they're frosh, I like Citraholic and Amalgamator better than almost all of the pricey/rare WCIPAs that come around.

    Seems to be the case that Stone gets/sends out older packages of them.
    I have a guy who comes into my store convinced that he gets headaches if Amalgamator/Citraholic are older than a month and a half. :rolling_eyes:
    I've had to explain to him twice now that about a month old is as fresh as I seem to get them so if it is such a concern for him, buy them from the brewery.

    Oh man, I remember getting ultra fresh Amalgamator from Liquor Warehouse when Beachwood self distributed. Didn't realize Stone was now their distributor.

    If your nearby any of the Windsor stores or Mr K’s get your gator CitraH fix there. It’s always fresh. Don’t trust TW or most other places.

    We get a drop in Chicago each Fall, and they are usually a couple weeks old at most, though to be honest they hold on well if refrigerated. Hoping Beachwood also sends Mocha Machine and a keg or two or Hops of Brixton and one or two others next month.

    I’m thinking Street3, Block2 wet hop should be out around the same time? Not sure on cans. Draft and growler/crowler fills only? It’s been a lot of Strata and Simcoe fresh hops so far. Last year I believe Sabro hops were strong. I thought it was a hit or miss with sabro. WA is very strong in the fresh hop game.

    Barrelogenesis revisit for their 10th anniversary is not one you should pass up if you like English style barleywines, so if you still see it at Windsor CM, get it. It's a cold weather sipper for sure. Pairs well with the thunderstorms we've been having.

    I'll be snagging that from the HB taproom as soon as they open on Thursday for sure.

    Yes, it's already in at your local distributor (Lime Ventures), however it has a blackout date until tomorrow. Very safe to reckon your more "on it" bottle shops are already hiding it in the back until tomorrow morning.

    It lands at the So Cal distro (Stone Distributing) today; anyone with Friday deliveries will have it on the shelves tomorrow. Very, very few bottle shops in their distro chain have a Friday delivery, so it may be hard to hunt down for this weekend in So Cal. I do know one place that will be getting it on Friday, with the cases already allocated and secured for you to pick up tomorrow afternoon here in Los Angeles. Do I know which shop? To quote roughly Obi-Wan Kenobi, "Well, of course I know which shop. It's my shop!"

    No word on distro (EDIT: on their IG) but there’s always shipping available.
