    I'll be there.

    @fds if you missed out on KBS you can buy 2 bottles from my 4-pack (sounds like you did from NLTCB). Two and a draft pour is plenty for me. Cheers

    only tried it on tap but straight up disliked this years kbs. got some unpleasant green pepper from it.

    checked out boiler brewing on saturday and it was pretty cool. kind of has a steampunk/speakeasy thing going on, definitely a different vibe from the other taprooms in lincoln/omaha. didn't get to try all the beers but thought the hoppy offerings... will be excited to try more, esp when (if?) he gets the more experimental stuff going.

    I thought the coconut stout from Boiler was really good. All of the others I tried were pretty solid.

    Last year it retailed for $9.49 at Beertopia so probably $9.99 at most other places. I don't see why it would be more expensive this year.

    They should both at Beertopia on Friday for sure. Maybe we'll get lucky and see them on Tuesday. Premier is pretty good about getting beers checked into their system quickly.

    Beertopia and Beer Corner USA continues to rock! @dennisjames33 and @BrettHead - LOTS of good things said about you guys on the Chicago Beer Enthusiasts (i.e. Beer Nerds) Facebook page.
    I'll be in town May 16-18, so put your list of "wants" together from the Chicago area and I'll be in touch. ....~Vinnie Z

    Probably not the right place but I wanted to offer this to you folks in Omaha.

    I will be in town next week Tuesday and Wednesday the 19th and 20th for the Mumford & Sons concert. I'm coming from Des Moines and wanted to see if any of you were interested in any local beer. I was thinking growlers from 515 Brewing or any of the other local breweries in town would be nice for you to try. We don't have a ton of TG that you guys can't get in Council Bluffs but I think I can get some Pompeii and X-Hops Gold bombers and the usual PseudoSue and the other Florida cans. I might even be able to swing down to the Iowa Taproom as they do crowlers and have 120 Iowa beers on tap (menu). I would just be looking for bottles of things I haven't tried $/$. Nothing crazy. Send me a Beer Message if interested.

    I'll see what I can do. Say one of each. I'll see if there is anything at Iowa Taproom I think you need. Perhaps some Pulpit Rock.

    Are either of the Cybies beers from the CS drop before this week's still available anywhere? Guessing not but figure it's possible given the price point.

    I am still sitting on my Cybies, from awhile ago, just haven't cracked it yet. I assume stored cold, it should last for a bit? Or should I drink ASAP?

    Stony Brook Hyvee still has Waldo's as of 1 hour ago. Good thing b/c I couldn't make it to Beertopia in time

    I think I saw someone who posts on this board give a non-Cybies a very bad score on Untappd due to a likely infection issue. Of course I got them all confused when I was at the store the next day so only ended up buying NOB. Not a big deal if they're all gone but wild gladly buy them if any remain.

    Who gets GLP shipments? Beertopia, Brix (both?), Stony Brook, Linden Market, and a limited amount to Spirit World?

    Some people including @ElJosharino gave Serenata (not the one we just got with blueberry but plain Serenata) low scores. I still haven't had it myself although hearing that didn't have me in a hurry to

    Yeah, that was it. Just searched on Untappd and reread his rating. I did buy the blueberry version this time around since that appears to be fine.

    Yeah, the Serenata bottle I opened was a buttery, rubbery mess. Maybe some time sitting in the bottle on a warm shelf will give the Brett a chance to clean it up. I'd had the beer on another occasion (on tap at El Bait, I think) and it was fine, so I'm assuming either batch or bottle variation. The Serenata blueberry I had the other night though, was fantastic.
