    This was just posted on Cigar City's Facebook page:

    Today we're brewing the largest batch (15 barrels) of something we have been doing for a long time but never got around to doing a big batch of: PEACH IPA! Perhaps our most popular small treatment is finally getting the spotlight on the big stage. Should be ready in a few weeks on draft and hopefully available in growlers!

    I can't wait for this, it sounds heavenly!

    I really liked this one when I had it before Hunahpu 2011. I wish they had bottled it instead of the Papaya IPA. I liked it a lot more than the Papaya personally.

    Perhaps my favorite variant of Jai Alai. So tasty.

    I like peach much more than grapefruit, so I would love to try this one one day!

    Not yet, but It will be available at the tap room and possibly growlers as their FB post indicated.

    Their Facebook page indicates that some kegs will indeed hit distribution.

    Nice! Although it won't be super fresh then, but maybe still good.

    I wish they would can this and the white oak version on a regular basis and sell it in four packs alongside the regular Jai Alai. Jai Alai would then replace water for every regard except showing, hand washing and toilet flushing in my life.

    If they were offering growlers and hit distribution, they probably have a fair amount of it. I could've sworn I saw them mention on Facebook too that it's going to be seen a bit more regularly, could be wrong there.
