    Never heard or tried them before. Amazing news to have more Wild Ales coming here.

    Now if they just made it legal to ship my Cellar Reserve bottles to NY direct from CS, not via trustee...!

    (And yes I understand why they can't)

    Hmm... I like this idea. Would be great to see such excellent beer at fast food joints such as

    TGI Fridays
    Olive Garden
    Red Lobster
    Steak n Shake
    Taco Bell? Do they even serve beer?

    But alas, probably not the case. Guess we'll just have to play the waiting game.

    If you guys get other 12% brews I would think it's likely.

    Not sure how much will make it out here, I would doubt LI would get any right away. Probably just NYC.

    Good beer isn't going to make the crap food any better.

    Not sure how many bottles are coming, but it seems they'll at least be available in bars.

    I talked to someone from 12% Imports. Stores will definitely be getting bottles. He mentioned WF Bowery and Bierkraft as receiving shipments this week. Let me know if anyone sees them around - I'd love to grab a bottle for my brother's engagement party on Saturday.

    I'm going to try and hit up Bierkraft after work if I can, but I hate paying those prices. Grrr.

    Just got back from Bierkraft. They have Surette, Vieille, Hop Savant, and the witbier. $12.50 each

    WF say Friday now. Should be the same 4 offerings. Probably 5 bucks a bottle cheaper though. Looka like Bierkraft got at least a case of each.

    Yeah they told me expecting it by Friday when I called a bit ago. I wonder if they will be that cheap there. I was thinking like $10 compared to other 12% offering (knowing that some are not brewed in the US).

    No, those are just the 2 that one of the employees at 12% told me to check out. Top Hops should be getting some tomorrow, and I'm sure all of the other stores on 12%'s website too.

    I got them for $10 each today. They shouldn't go for that much. Seems like all stores that carry 12% are getting them today or tomorrow.

    Not too bad. At the brewery Vielle and some other of the saisons are around $6. But at least they've made it over here

    Whole Foods have them for $8.99 each, which is very reasonable (and no bottle limits!)
