    Distribution, or brewery only? Single cans or four packs?

    I never saw them, but was also out of town for a week around the holidays, so I guess it's possible they already came and went.

    Haven't seen any new Prairie other than Christmas Bomb around DC except at the Churchkey event.

    I did see x-mas bomb at a few stores in DC and some collab in cans but no other variants yet...as a side note Crafthouse out in Reston has x-mas bomb and regular prairie stout on tap. Pretty yummy.

    Any KCM available around DC? I've been out of town for three weeks...

    Any other tips on new-to-distro beers would also be appreciated.

    There may still be some Christmas Bomb at Modern Liquors and/or Connecticut Avenue.

    I'm fairly certain I saw Christmas Bomb at Conn Ave last night.

    On another note Funky Buddha announced some new packaging and beers. Don't bother watching the long and unfunny video. The only information worth sharing from it is that distro is expected for VA and DC in late January/early February.

    Does anyone know what Beltway's typical Grimm ipa growler pricing is and if they have regular special on growler fills? They post on Facebook every now and then about having 1/2 priced growler fills but doesn't seem to be anything regular.

    stopped paying attention to pricing because it used to be absurd but also consider dates. a lot of stuff put on there was released in cans in NY a while before.

    I think 32oz fills are somewhere around $14-16, double for 64oz. They send semi-frequent emails with discount codes. Check out the Grimm thread to get an idea when the IPAs were released and this how old they are.

    On a separate note, Ocelot is releasing Home in cans on Feb 7th.

    They're canning Talking Backwards as well right? Is their canning line up and running now? Sunnyside Dweller cans would be an absolute game changer.

    Going off an instagram comment by Ocelot, but looks like that will happen in the future.

    They post the menu on DigitalPour now. 32oz pricing isn't on there, but 64oz is. Looks like the IPA's are now around $22 and the sours are $18. Seems like they dropped the growler prices on Grimm stuff.

    Looks like DC proper got a second shipment of Bourbon County recently - several shops had a good amount of it.

    Maybe so, but I know a bunch of places downtown have had it the whole time. Unusual amount of the barleywine around too.

    Many places with the Epic Triple Barrel Baptist this week, I guess we won't get the Baptista?

    starrdogg Crusader (777) Jun 21, 2010 District of Columbia

    The Baptista and Triple Barrel were on tap at Lost Dog in Alexandria this weekend, and both were fantastic beers. I have no idea if we're getting any bottles of the Baptista, but I'm guessing it would've come in at the same time as the Triple Barrel if we were.

    Does anybody know how often Alewerks releases their Bourbon Barrel Porter? I haven't had that beer in a long time and it has always been one of my favorites. Seems impossible to find any more.

    I think it is once a year and seems to be released late in the year. I know that most Total Wines in NOVA seem to still have a good amount of it available. i would check there if you have access to one.

    Anyone seen Hopslam around the DC metro yet?

    Usually takes a few weeks to get to us. I would expect it next week (but I also haven't been out looking either).

    Hop, Cask and Barrel had limited quantities of Prairie Pirate Noir, Pirate Bomb, Bourbon Paradise and Vanilla Noir, all 1/per. Presumably some of those will also hit in other places soon.

    I just left and all bottles still there. At least six or so of each. All $13.75 per.

    I got there maybe 35 minutes after your post, and they were cleaned out. Would appreciate the intel if anyone spots the Pirate variants elsewhere!

    Wow, extremely sorry. I was at CBC not Hop Cask. Not sure how I made that mistake. DM me and I’ll happily share these.

    I stopped by the TW in Springfield and Fairfax (on main st) and they did not have any as of
    yesterday 1/17/18.

    Odd Provisions just put out Pirate Bomb!, Noir, and Bourbon Paradise. I'll most likely be bringing in Vanilla Noir and Pirate Noir for next week around this time just gotta make some shelf space. So come buy some beer!
