    I was in Collierville(Memphis suburb) over the Christmas holiday. I stopped in a few liquor stores to see if their selections had improved in the past year, and sadly, it hasn't. I didn't see any Lagunitas. That's not to say that you can't find the lower alcohol offerings in a grocery store, but I would say it's probably unlikely.

    Looking at the Flying Saucer menu, I don't see Lagunitas. If any bar in the city would have it, it'd be there.

    Chattanooga has it, so it appears Memphis could be the last big city in the state to get it.

    I'm from Memphis. It doesn't look familiar. The first I had ever heard of it was on this site.

    What about Dyersburg? I think I saw on City Liquors Facebook page they had some in stock.

    Edit: Looks like you're in Jonesboro area. I guess Dyersburg is just about as far as Jackson, if a little shorter in distance.

    Green Flash, Samuel Adams High Grav (Barrel Room collection and Imperial series), Sweetwater (Dank Tank, Happy Ending, Festive Ale, etc.), Lagunitas (obviously), Bridgeport, Rivertown, Schlafly, Lucky Bucket, French Broad... maybe a few more, can't think at the moment.

    Edit: Just wanted to add that this is in addition to everything else that's delivered out of Memphis, i.e. Sierra Nevada, Stone, etc.

    ubenumber2, I noticed in the other thread you created that you were on the hunt for Victory Hop Wallop. When I lived there, I was able to find both that and Hop Devil pretty regularly at the Winery in Germantown. You might want to give them a call.

    I've also seen Lagunitas at Joe's before, but I don't remember the extent of the selections they carry. Planning on stopping in there tomorrow, so I'll try to post specifics then.

    Definitely a solid lineup, repping the brewery's hop-centered beer obsession for sure ha. The only one I can't personally attest to is the Cappuccino... No disrespect intended, but why'd they bypass distribution to Memphis for Dyersburg?! And what store there did you find it?

    Picked it up at City Liquor , they have a facebook page and you can email or call Burt and he is a great help. He said that it comes from the distributor in Nashville and that they do not deliver to Memphis , they go into Jackson and he talked them into bringing the goods to Dyersburg. Ive tried the Sucks so far and man its a tasty beer

    I had no idea there was a 'good' selection in Dyersburg. May go there tomorrow. Any other gems close to Jackson not counting Memphis or Nashville?
