    Hey all,

    Big fan of their Helles lager as a session beer and was wondering if anyone has seen the cans up here in Orlando? I know Total Wine off Colonial does not have them, and doesn't know if or when they will get them (they have the other 3 CCB cans though). Just wanted to stock up on some of this stuff for NFL this weekend, and I also find it good to alternate in between the stronger IPAs etc.

    It hasn't hit many distributors yet. I know my local distributor, Brown, for south Florida is picking it up in mid February. You need to check with your local distributor. If they haven't picked it up ask when they will. I'm sure Orlando won't be deprived of any CCB cans. I myself can't wait for cans of invasion pale ale...

    Cheers!

    Thanks for the help. According to Brown Distributing, the Total Wine I spoke of has it. So that should mean it's there, or it's coming soon.

    Been waiting to see this for a bit too. I actually went to order a keg of Helles from Total Wine in late December and they said it wasn't available currently either. I've seen tons of Cracker, Maduro and Jai Alai though.

    You can get kegs right from the brewery, Just have to call and schedule the pickup, They have a $45 deposit.

    Check the one down Alafaya, pretty sure I have found White Oak Jai Alai and Helles there. Recently I found Helles at the ABC in Altamonte Springs I believe. Call ABC, and ask what stores have Helles, and they will point you in the right direction.
