    It is a 750, but I see it on the shelves all the time. Not sure on its release status.

    I agree, trying to think of a year round 4-pack and bomber (non 750 ml) is tough. Everything here in Wisconsin seems to be seasonal. For 4-packs I would go with Sprecher's Black Bavarian or Hinterland's Coffee Luna Stout. For a 22 oz bomber, I would say Grumpy Troll's Spetsnaz Stout.

    Fresh Hot Rod Red for 4 packs i guess
    bomber is Seeing Double, although I dont think its as great as everyone says it is.

    and for ohio beers that I love so much:
    4 pack is head hunter hands down
    bomber is probably either Rivertown Lambic or BORIS.

    Hard to argue with this out of Indiana. I don't know if People's Space Cowboy is going to be regular but I'd put that above Osiris if it is.

    Year round. Was going to say Lake Erie Monster, 4 pk, but is seasonal.

    That being said, relatively easily, here's to another one for Head Hunter from Fatheads. WOW this stuff is good.

    I am chiming in on Mass. since I am so close: Regarding the bomber, it's most definitely Jack D'or from Pretty Things.

    All the Sprecher beers come in 4 packs. So I would go with Black Bavarian.

    easily La Cumbre Elevated IPA for 4 pack tallboys. This is a really great IPA which took gold at the GABF a few years back. For bombers i will go with Santa Fe Chicken Killer Barleywine. Not the absolute best american barleywine, but it's awesome for $5 a bomber (and plenty strong too, if that's what you're into).
