    In the minority on this one. Drink up, boys! (by the way, it appears most stores are getting more Peruvian Morning with the Illumination)

    I saw some Illumination on the shelf at Cellars about a month ago...twas from last year! Nice that Peruvian is still pretty easy to come by. Easily my favorite barrel aged beer, not just from CW, but from anyone. Price is great.

    Eden Prairie Liquors had some of last year's on the shelf a few weeks ago too. Might want to double-check you're getting the fresh stuff if you pick some up!

    I got burned on some old Illumination at EP liquors recently, which quickly turned my jubilation to sadness when the grapefruity freshness didn't slap me in the face when I opened it. Looking forward to freshies of this.

    are you wondering about Illumination in the TC, if so, we got a good amount. Hope Iowa gets a good amount too, that beer is awesome

    Absolutely. Not everywhere, but some places will still have it. Their BBBW and Peruvian Morning are still available at some places.

    Unfortunately, Iowa doesn't get Central Waters distribution at all. Hoping to pick up Illumination, BBBW and Peruvian Morning next weekend when I'm up there though!

    Illumination is my favorite DIPA available in the MN market. I like the more "old school" hop bill of C-hops and Simcoe. I picked up a 4-pack today at Team Liquor. Fantastic beer.

    yes and you should be able to get Peruvian Morning as most stores got a 2nd shipment... BBBW that will be harder to find..Illumination is great this year so good

    Having the Illumination now, while cooking dinner. Amazing! May have to follow this up with a Mrycenary. Or save a bit of the Illumination and do a side by side!
