    Obviously most of these beers aren't going to be 12 or under at all stores.
    Also list stores that have these beers for said price. I believe Morelli's has all these beers.

    SN Celebration Ale
    Summit Northern Porter
    Ranger IPA
    Has Ruthless Rye hit MN yet?

    I would agree with all of the above, although most stores seems to carry them at 13.99 or more. Haskells has all of these at 11.99 however(sale).

    Havent seen Ruthless yet, even at stores that are out of Celebration.

    Couple to add that are staples for me:

    SN Torpedo
    Schell Rye

    Ive said it before, but as soon as Summit fires out Saga in this format, it will replace all of these, at least for a while.

    Must be nice to live where beer is less expensive [than in NYC suburbs]. The absolute cheapest I found Celebration or Torpedo was $14.99 a 12 pk. and that was in CT. Most places in NY, it's between $15.99 - $17.99.

    I saw on twitter last week that Ruthless is 'out' in MN as well, in my experience that doesnt mean stores actually have it on their shelves, or have received it from the distro. Wont be long regardless

    Saw Ruthless at Heritage Last Week. I still have never tried that, maybe I should pick up a single next time I'm out.

    Haskells sale on 12pks is over. regular price looks to be 13.99 on most. Any deals going on currently for the 'S' breweries-Schell/Summit/Sierra?

    Just got a schells mixed twelve for 10.99. Emerald Rye, Firebrick, Pils, and Chimney Sweep.

    Also when is saga coming in 12 packs? I thought that wasn't gonna happen because demand was too high?

    I talked to Summit about it back in Dec. and they said they would have them out this winter. Per Twitter, they are packaging them this week

    Morellis got it in now too and 10.99 is the everyday price. This rules on many levels.
