    Via Facebook, Parish announcing 750s of Farmhouse IPA for April.

    In related news, they're also bottling Canebrake now, although distribution limited to Lafayette/Baton Rouge area.

    Thanks, will do.

    Also, for what it's worth, Goose Island just rolled out their first wave of six-packs to our market: Honkers and 312.

    Just talked to Duvel/Ommegang. Game of Thrones Blonde will hit the La market but in very small amounts.. Something like 4 cases and as many kegs for the whole state. We are going to tap our keg the night the guys from Duvel are in town April 8 th and there will be at least 2 other tappings in La that night or the days following. Package should arrive on the shelves the same time.

    Also tin roofs new IPA should be hitting bars in New Orleans this week. And Goose island 312 is not Availble in kegs. Pairie kegs arrived this week. I don't know who else took some but I'm trying to get mine on by this weekend.

    That's all the news I can't think of at the moment .

    It's on the Avenue Pub's new feed on the site. Expected by early May.

    And, in more terrific Avenue Pub news: Stone Enjoy By tapped on April 17.

    Looks like a few things slipped into distribution under the radar:

    Caldera
    Nectar Ales
    White Birch
    Laughing Dog

    Have only seen Caldera IPA, but really hope Rauch Ur Bock makes it here.
    The Nectar Ales intrigues because I know they are a Firestone Walker company. Is FW in our future as well? Crossing fingers...

    Where are you finding White Birch beers? I have been looking to try some of there beers for some time now
     
  15. EgadBananas

    EgadBananas Mar 18, 2009 Louisiana

    Steins has all of the things I listed, including 3 varieties of White Birch: Hop Session, Hooksett and Belgian Pale Ale.

    My second time at stein's was yesterday and I just wanted to say that place is great. Got a couple Enjoy By's while in town. No idea how Dan stays sane with the amount of people that are going through there
     
  17. EgadBananas

    EgadBananas Mar 18, 2009 Louisiana

    Apparently the Enjoy By's where on a "must ask for" basis...definitely not in the coolers or beer room on Saturday. Dan's pretty callused and straight forward...I'm sure the traffic is usual and predictable to him. I like to pretend that I'm in Philly and this is just how a normal delicatessen operates. Sadly, I always come to the realization that I'm not in Philly and I just can't seem to justify being called an asshole by the staff just because I decided to trek 45 minutes into the city and it just happened to be around 1pm. Lunch rush, apparently. Fucking. Shame. On. Me. (and the friend I drug with me)

    Price check on a sixer of Prairie Standard!

    Saw the 6 at Whole Foods for $16, which is steep, but I guess not outrageous. Has anyone bought a 6 from Stein's and is Stein's allowing you to buy 12 oz singles of this one?

    Anyone have an idea of which Prairie Ales Stein's typically has in stock? Also what is the average price for these bottles? I may have to send my family by to grab some when they're in town for Jazzfest. Thanks.
     
  20. EgadBananas

    EgadBananas Mar 18, 2009 Louisiana

    They had the Prairie Ale, Hop and Standard when I was there a week or so ago. I've also seen all of those at Whole Foods, so might be able to catch them there too and WF is down the street on magazine as well.
     
  21. ZethOfTheNorth

    ZethOfTheNorth Jan 31, 2012 Louisiana

    And regarding prices, I think you're looking at about $13 each for the bombers (Hop, Ale) and $16ish for a 6 of Standard, which Stein's sells singles of.

    Two new Parish beers now at the Avenue Pub.

    Envie, a 5.5% APA, is on draft. Farmhouse IPA is big bottles only at $19 a pop unless they're still doing bottle pours upstairs.
     
  23. ZethOfTheNorth

    ZethOfTheNorth Jan 31, 2012 Louisiana

    I thought it was great too, especially by local standards; there definitely isn't anyone else bottling a Belgian IPA in Louisiana.

    Aaand, looks like Stein's, Whole Foods, and the old Cork & Bottle will be receiving shipments today. Stein's has a one-per limit.
     
  24. Crawfish61

    Crawfish61 Feb 1, 2013 Louisiana

    I had a six pack of the Envie and it was very good. I saw where they are bottling 6 packs of Farmhouse but it maybe limited to Lafayette and baton rouge.

    Just picked up a Farmhouse IPA from Pearl Wine (née Cork & Bottle) and it came to $14 with tax.

    More good news: Sweetwater is coming in July or August.

    Good to hear that Sweetwater will be making it to Louisiana. I would also like to see Terrapin make it down here as well.

    Cambridge Brewing at Steins today. Looks like its brewed under the Ipswich umbrella a la Clown Shoes, Brash and Ipswich, so I suppose it should have been expected. Audacity of Hops was good IMO.

    So glad we're getting Cambridge Brewing Co now. I remember visiting a friend of mine in Cambridge back in late 2001, a few months after having gotten into craft beer, and being enamored by their Great Pumpkin Ale.

    funny you should ask. I just posted all the detials on facebook and our weboste should be updated tonight. I am trying to creat a BA event but it keeps telling me my website is invalid ....so that will reuqire a bit more time.

    Our Rollout is Monday May 13. We will be pouring four of the beers downstairs no later than 3pm and then four upstyairs when it opens at 5pm. there are events planned for Baton Rouge & the Northshore but i do not have those details at the moment. Bottles should start arriving in stores on Tuesday May14th.

    The market in general got these beers: 2Xs IPA(draft & bottle), LIVE Pale ale(draft & bottle) & Hop Sun Wheat( bottle only)
    The Pub has a small amount of the following just for the rollout : Creme Brulee, Oat & Pumking all draft only
    there are a couple of other speiclaty kegs like Mokah( draft only) that are being sent to BR..again I dont have those details.

    La is on the allocation list for their specialty beers( draft & bottle) which will ship as they are released through the year.

    hope this helps!

    The beverage store in Baton Rouge has put out their bottles of southern tier this weekend. Just picked mine up!

    I am pretty excited for southern tier to make its way down south to Louisiana. Southern tier was one of my favorite breweries while i was living in the hoboken/new york city area. But since moving down to louisiana i have had a tough time finding micro brews that can compare. Does anyone have any suggestions on finding quality micro brews in the thibodaux/houma area?
