Looks like I get to start this year's thread!
Happy New Beer everyone!!!
Thanx for kicking this New Year off. Looks like Toppling Goliath will have some interesting options per their twitter feed. I had a New Belgium Starship ipa last night which was solid. Last weekend the family and i saw The rise of skywalker at Flix, and had their Hopocalypse Now Dipa offering. Again, pretty good. Cheers!
Have seen Founder's Imperial Stout around, any KBS Espresso sightings?
Does anyone know if Big Grove, Hazier Things series of cans are making it to the metro?
Almost all of their recent stuff has.....also, Barn Town Blueberry Pancakes(Pastry Stout), Bike Rack Rumble(DDH NEIPA), and 12 on Twelve(Pastry Stout)(Collab with Phase 3) will be releasing next Saturday(Jan. 18th)
I hope Barn Town cans some of these beers that aren't hazy IPAs eventually. Trying for a haze-free January Really enjoying Central Waters Rye Chocolate barrel-aged porter after the snowy trek home.
Enjoyed som 515 Greenbelt ipa last night. Outstanding beer.
Big Grove Hazier Things dropped today. $15/4pk tallboys, two different hazies for those inclined.
Founder's KBS Espresso will not be in the DSM metro, as Iowa Beverage did not order it in time. I guess I'm ISO? I am trying to avoid supporting them after last year's debacle, but I love coffee bombs.
Well that seems awfully irresponsible.
I’ve seen Confluence 1188 at a few Hyvee stores around the metro.
Hopslam tomorrow. Please let me know if it's hazy. Important to keep my new year's intention alive
Nothing like rushing to find beer when it's snowy and crappy outside!
I saw it stacked up already at the 86th Hy-Vee in urbandale. Opted for the Lions bridge majestic beast tho, so I can't report on haziness or lack thereof.
Hyvee Johnston has about 3 1/2 cases left. Its on the floor. Warm. Won't take long to chill in this weather.
Canned on 1/10. Peaked in the brite tank. Wish we got more double two hearted instead
I thought was a very good beer. I would buy it again
I was super impressed! I’ve enjoyed all their special release IPA’s recently.
on another note, think we’ll see an FW Parabola?
We haven't missed a FW release so far, so I expect so. If you need a barrel fix for the cold snap, I've been enjoying crowler fills from the downtown Hy-Vee lately. Firestone Walker Sucaba and Helluva Brûlée are both on still, and Peace Tree's Buffalo Trace Coffee Stout has been downright ideal for me after hitting the pavement/snow removal work. Aecht smoked Oktoberfest has also been hitting the spot for me, and it's the only the store I've found it.
Any Hopslam 5L sightings?
They had a couple of them at North Ankeny Blvd Hy-Vee Friday.
Have them here in W Michigan.
Just had a can last night. I thought it was very good. I really like these numbered IIPA's from them. Kinda wish I could have them all the time!
I had 1 can left in the garage. Dont know what i was thinking. A slushfest last night. Mixed it with some Pompeii.
I definitely used colder temps outside on my deck to rapidly refrigerate Hopslam last Friday, but this is a big risk with costlier brew. Once it's dead, it's dead—no nose, and a lot of things we cherish most in this sort of beer, be it pillowy mouthfeel, aromatics, etc. all gone. Costly enough I feel weird pouring down the drain so I try to not risk it and set timers or just refrigerate and wait, but also try to buy cold or freshly delivered every time to avoid risk.
We learned that in college. It's not worth putting the beer in the freezer, even if you really intend to check on it very soon.
Anyone see some Captain Lawrence (New York) drop some beers? A really good NEIPA.. first time in DSM. Canned 1-9-20.. so fresh. I've been to the brewery and amazed they have some fresh cans here!
Looks like it might be a fluke? It was at Price Chopper.. Powder Dreams was the NEIPA and Liquid Gold.. haven't seen it anywhere else.
Saw at Mills Civic Hyvee
Yea, looks like a drop of a couple of their beers.. highly recommend the Powder Dreams
Some Evil Genius beers out of Pennsylvania are new too.
Anyone see BA Ten Fidy 4 packs yet?
Which Price Chopper?
86th Street In Johnston. None left now. I did see it at Fleur HyVee too though.
I sww KBS Expresso today at HyVee. No BA Ten Fidy yet.
Was just going to post that John's got the KBS Espresso, so looked like at least part of IA was going to see it. Which Hy-Vee was it spotted?
West Lakes in WDM.
so glad this actually hit! thanks for the tip, glad I was misinformed by my local and manager's IBS rep.
You may not have been. I had contacted the Founders rep for Iowa and he did say that there was a problem with ordering and he was holding out hope but couldn't promise we'd see it.
Still plenty of Pirate bomb at Urbandale Hy-Vee. Drinking great right now.
Only rum barrel aged beer I really love. One of Prairie's better beers. Bourbon BA Paradise is my favorite, though.
1 case of Founders Espresso KBS at johnston hyvee. As of 09:30 am
Whaat??? Sioux City got something before DSM? KBS Espresso had been sitting on shelves here for at least three weeks.
