A beer IS TOO a giraffe!!!!!
We can do tee-shirts...
Not sure where your at in MI but Copper Vine in Grandville just got in probably 12 more cases as of Thursday.
Anyone not get any Hopslam that wants some, get ahold of me and we can work out a locals for locals deal.
Thought i had gotten a nice deal on it for $58/case, after what i'd been hearing about prices. until the local place i had requested a case from called me up, i went in not knowing what it was gonna set me back... Lo and behold, it rings up $39.96 plus tax. Holy shit! Sadly, it was one of only two cases they were alotted and the other was spoken for. I almost felt guilty, like it was mispriced or something.
There is a good 8-10 cases of this stuff at Consumer Beverage in Milwaukee on Hwy 100
The 6er I bought ate up a $20 with a little spare change left over. IMO way over priced.
Had some this weekend. Excellent as usual.
i picked up a 3 6pks in northern KY on thurs 2/13 for $16.99 each.
I'm just waiting for Bell's to be available in California...come on Bell's!
Finally found some in Tampa FL area yesterday. Luckily they held 2 6 packs for me bc by the time I got there 8 hrs after I received the call that it was in stock it was gone. Paid $17.99/6 pack, glad I wasn't raped on the price. Had to drive an hr to get it but it was worth it in the long run!
Just bought my first six pack yesterday, $ 21.00 and $3.50 a bottle roughly is well worth it. Never have I had such a well balanced complex 10 percent ale hopped up sip after sip. I had to jump on it when I saw it at World Market which is a store like pier one with beer and wine. I can see why Bells puts a lot of professionalism in their beers.
I see a lot of people commenting how Hopslam is overpriced. I guess we have different definitions of the term. If a beer is overpriced, I am not buying it. It seems like a lot of those who are saying it is overpriced still, for some reason, are spending the money. I guess its not really that overpriced now, is it?
IMO over priced at $18.99 plus tax , I buy a 6 hoping to catch magic but I didn't
I've heard unofficially that as of this last Thursday Bell's is sold out of Hopslam in bottles. So what's out there is it.
Would love to get my hands on some in ny, anyone wanna trade
I'm drinking a Centennial Slam right now, half Hop Slam half Founders Centennial, and it's damned good.
The local Kroger had sixers for 14.99 so I had to get one more. Glad I did this stuff is so good
I think people claiming to it be overpriced are those who got gouged big time. Now I can see the person who spent $20+ for a six pack to think it isn't worth it (it really isn't at that point), but anything under $16 a six pack is actually a pretty decent price. If you figure the fact that most double IPA's are in 4 pack for $10-13, that puts them at about $15-20 a sixer on average. Hell, given the enormous quality of this one, the higher ABV, and the fact it's limited to like 4-6 week shelf life before it disappears, I'd say it's quite a bit cheaper than most. Besides Lagunita's Sucks =D
Got a sixer, the second one I opened must have been cracked because when I went pop the cap, half of mouth of the bottle came off with the cap.
A bit off topic but, i'm drinking a part founder's imperial stout & part cw brewhouse coffee stout that i combined last night, then fell asleep before drinking, so it lost it's bubblies.. so, i poured in about a 30% mix of vanilla bean buffalo sweat due to it's hefty carbonation, it's pretty excellent. I was sitting here wondering if making unique mixes was normal or i'm just a weird guy. Then i read this post. I loooooove me some centennial, i'm gonna follow your suit and try that combo tomorrow.
I had the same problem with the 2nd bottle I opened as well...
WOW...I paid $17.99 for the (4)pks of Abrasive, I bought in Woodbury last month...$12.99 for furious...you found a great deal
$24.99 a sixer in DC
Awesome beer, but I'd rather have Sucks at $9.99 a sixer or Myrcenary for $9.99 a 4 pack.
I think I was mistaken when I posted that. $17 I believe is about what I paid - but furious is closer to $9.99 or $10.99 around here I believe.
Was $18.99+ tax here. Totally worth it. Can hardly get any decent beers out for less than $4/beer...even during happy hours. Bought every last bottle I could...the stores guarded these things like they were their children.
Never had it before and I enjoyed every sip. Crazy waves of hops.
Just finished my first Oracle of the year. My Hopslam recollection is 5 months old, but yes, it has a more upfront hop bite than Hopslam, but interestingly enough, a slightly more balanced finish. I wouldn't kick either one out of bed!!
