    Hohensteins.

    P.S. One wonders whether Lanny and Brad ever reckoned on the confusion... (nah.)

    Does this mean I don't need to buy Stillwater Classique in Iowa or Wisconsin anymore? That's good news indeed.

    Artisanal Imports is Lanny. Artisan is the name of the Johnson Brothers beer outfit (Brad). Neither one are affiliated with Evil Twin and such, they are distributed by Clear River. Hohenstein has nothing to do with it.

    Less jibber-jabber, more details. When does Imperial Biscotti Break hit our shelves?

    We most likely won't see any variants those were released months ago.

    My apologies to Karl and the Gang -- I'm not trying to out-do LOB, honest.

    (I don't see anything on their webpage, Facebook -- are Clear River on Twitter?)

    I don't know if you folks in Minny will see it, but Evil Twin JUST released Double Barrel Even More Jesus and Barrel-aged Imperial Biscotti Break. So there are variants still floating around.

    We got a bunch of Stillwater and Off-Color too. I'm pretty excited to announce all the other cool beers we got tomorrow. All this stuff should be hitting at select spots in the metro throughout the week from what I've been told. Stoked to have all three of these breweries here.

    Stinson has all the beers listed they received on FB.

    I'm so indifferent about all these new to the market breweries, I just want Shelton Bro's back.

    Stinson had one bottle of Justin left and 5 or 6 Even More Jesus out on the floor.

    Mikkeller never left, they may not be distributed here, but they will be available for decades to come.

    Not only have they never left, they are actually introducing new beers without even sending anything new, shelf aged single hop barleywines!

    I've seen those. They're the dust dipped bottles, right?

    That's odd. I know Fantome is supposed to not be around but I seem to see them quite a bit.

    The only Fantôme that is still floating around town is the Tire Fire version of Hiver. There are still random bottles from most of breweries on that list in various nooks and crannies, but most of the goods stuff is long gone.

    you will see some of the brands that Shelton Brother used to distribute here still on the shelf Fantome Hiver had infection issues and sat in most shops and was picked up

    Aren't all of Fantome's beers "infected"?
