    It won't be successful in my opinion. They're distributed through the state, and most salesmen only care about liqour. I don't even have a salesmen from that liqour company

    Checked at all of the Kalamazoo bottle shops and didn't find it. I did hear that International Beverage in Gr. Rapids had some.

    Picked up a Blaecorn Unidragon and a Porcine Unidragon after work. Kinda of pricey at $10.89 and $13.69 respectively. Hope they're good!

    edit: Found these at Goodrich's in East Lansing

    Have not seen it yet. Not sure on which distributor is carrying it here, I thought it would be NWS, but they apparently don't have it.
    Edit: Email sent to the brewery, hopefully I get a response soon.

    Any one find out which Distro is bringing this into the state? If it's Great Lakes Wine and Spirits, I won't even think about picking them up...

    Thank you Michigan....for continuing to bring in underwhelming breweries to be distributed throughout the state so we can keep drinking all of the great Michigan craft beers that can be found anywhere!

    Cheers!

    I had the Porcine a couple of days ago and it was great stuff. Awesomely thick mouthfeel. Excited to try as much as I can.

    OK, I'm making a stand... Won't buy any breweries outside of Michigan until we get Ithaca here. Need some IPA's to finally get here rather than all stouts!

    I have no relationship with them. Been open 3 years and had no idea they were servicing my area. Will be getting some in Frankenmuth in the couple weeks. They only come over here every 3 weeks.

    Good for MI - some of their stuff is pretty good.

    What's goofy is that I live about 30 minutes from where it is brewed in MA and can't buy the stuff in my state, yet it can be found in Alabama. :)

    Not really complaining - it's just, a bit odd (then again the state of NH is shitty to deal with re: beer labels.)
