    Man...we could in the relatively near future see some distribution of both Jackie O's AND Fat Head's? Glorious.

    really looking forward to (hopefully) seeing some of their beers make it out of the Cleveland area in the near future.

    That's awesome! I try to make a point of stopping by Fat Head's every time I'm in the Cleveland area; I'd love it if I could bring some cans back with me.

    We're about 30-45 days from seeing the first bottles from the new brewery if all goes well. Cavalier is handling distribution and there should be a decent flow. As for the cans, I'm not sure if Matt is leaning towards canning Head Hunter or not - heard the cans would be for more experimental and Belgian beers. I know for sure the first few waves will be bottles.

    I can't wait to be able to pick up a pack of head hunter at the store, it is hard being an east sider sometimes.

    I'm a west sider and also can't wait. I'll be able to stop going to the pub 2-3 times a week and maybe only go once.

    They haven't started distributing yet. Their 4pks have just been available at their brewpub. I'm not sure of where or how they plan to distribute..

    I was told they are going to start with NE Ohio and Western PA and see how it goes.

    I also had Citra Pale on tap at Fathead's, outstanding session beer with hops.

    It's only fair that we get Head Hunter since Columbus went up that way.

    I can not wait to sit down with fresh bottles of Head Hunter, White Rajah, Sculpin and some Columbus IPA and do a little taste test.

    makes sense, a West PA guy brewing in NE Ohio. Bring on the Headhunter
