    Skip the soap. Grab another MZ. It's the neck beard way.

    I heard it's not even available for the retailers to order from JJ Taylor yet. Probably a couple weeks is the estimate.

    Anyone's guess at this point, though I was really surprised that it lasted thru Tuesday noon at CCB.

    i happened to randomly spot in the last store I'd expect to find it in Pensacola. Problem is... I had to pay $20.99. :slight_frown:

    CCB has been releasing a lot of beers lately. I'm kind of tired of dropping $13-$15 for a bomber of every beer they release. Going to just buy a couple of each moving forward unless I have requests from friends for it. I've slowed down on my trading so no reason to keep buying allotment. Everything with CCB is smaller and more expensive. I'm still a fanboy but it's annoying.

    I saw a lot of people buying 1-2 bottles of MZ so some may be doing the same as me.

    Pretty sure this info isn't good. It hit Lakeland yesterday (Thursday) so I can't imagine it won't hit Tampa/St.Pete today or beginning of next week at the latest.

    I hear you here. CCB has been crushing limited releases (which is awesome) and it would be quite expensive to catch them all AND max out. Pretty sure Caffe Americano is coming out again in September too?! Yikes.

    However, Zhukov isn't one I'm interested in NOT maxing on...which reminds me: why isn't Zhukov on year-round like most other breweries imperial stout?! Is it TOO much to ask it have it canned at least all winter? Paging Brew Hub...

    It takes too much time in the tank, and therefore limits the amount of other beer they can produce and distribute. Brewhub also wants to churn stuff through their equiptment, rather than have stuff sit in tanks. And if I'm CCB I'm not outsourcing my Zhukov recipe. If something goes wrong it's an expensive drainpour.Plus some of the hype and limited offering is a good business/marketing tactic.

    I like CCB putting out more bottle releases, some aren't as good as others, but it's better than waiting multiple months for something good to show up. I assume we'll see Good Gourd shortly, and the Guayabera cans.

    One other note on marketing/business, if you notice a lot of the new bottle releases will go in the fridge before they tap it. Which seems to force people, especially visitors to buy the bottles before knowing what it tastes like. Then after the bottles are gone, they have it on tap for a while. Zhukov being different, probably because they know everyone will but it anyways. But it would be better as a consumer to be able to order a pint to determine how many bottles to buy.

    How much more time in the tank does Zhukov spend then other breweries imperial stouts? Not to mention if ingredient limitations aren't there why wouldn't a business want to produce and sell more product to even get close to demand? This isn't Hunahpu after all...I get why they don't produce that more often! But this is just an imperial stout.

    I didn't mean to suggest that the Brew Hub brew it FOR CCB but with the Brew Hub's production of the cores it gives CCB more space to brew all these special releases.

    Got it, I'm guessing the above has to do with all the issues CCB had with Brewhubs canning of Cubanno expresso and WOJA. They haven't canned there since. Originally they indicated moving all canning to brewhub, but that changed and now they just use brewhub to brew. And CCB has added more tanks and another warehouse onsite.

    ABC Winter Park on N. Orlando ave. got in a case this morning and sold out in 30 minutes. I would imagine some of the other ABCs in the area will get some today as well.

    Are there any online stores to buy Zhukov? I was down there last year and snagged a couple of bottles, but won't be able to get there this year. I need to make this a yearly purchase
