    Fat Head’s production brewery in Middleburg Heights Ohio has shipped out its first truck of its nationally acclaimed Head Hunter IPA 4 packs!

    Look for it in Heinen’s & Acme supermarkets, Lizardvilles, better beverage stores and at the brewpub in North Olmsted. Pittsburgh area will be receiving their fair share in the next couple days also. Fat Head’s beer is being distributed through Cavalier Distributing if there is any questions needing answered.

    Any word on whether or not they will be distributing this further east to Philadelphia area or not? I really want to try this beer.

    I love fatheads ipa.

    Those Bistro awards used to speak for themselves (hoptologist, cough, tarnished reputation, cough).

    Hoping it comes to Columbus as well... Still haven't tried Head Hunter but I've heard it's as good as CIPA and WR. Would be great to have access to 3 of the top American IPAs out there.

    I just bought a fresh case I'm actually ready for more already, it's that easy to drink and fulfills the hophead drunkard's dream.

    So is this stuff readily available? I have a buddy in Hudson, OH who will grab some for me if it can be found.

    I just got turned on. Is it only in better craft places or is it off the shelf of grocery stores too?

    See my last post, but the best bet are Heinen's stores; they have a ton.

    Unbelievable what this beer is doing in competition, especially at The Bistro. Great, great beer.

    I'm going to have to look for this next week on my trip. Anyone know if it's made it to Cincinnati yet? I missed it on tap when I was in Pittsburgh in June, so this would be a helluva make up, especially if I could bring some home.

    Stopped by yesterday to get some Rajah on tap, ended up drinking Head Hunter instead (even though I'd just come from Fat Heads) :D

    MarkIntihar Initiate (0) Mar 17, 2010 Michigan

    I didn't ask, but there are plenty of stores in the area that still have some, per the posts above. You shouldn't have a problem finding it.

    BLASPHEMY ! :eek: Personally I'm not into it...but it seems that local stores have now as a regular beer for a good price ($8.99-$9.99) so people can stop freaking out about locating it.

    Well they actually didn't have Rajah, which is why I chose the Head Hunter. :p

    Not really. I saw a few singles on the shelves at Save-On Tobacco a week or two ago.. but for the most part, I haven't really seen any lately.

    MarkIntihar Initiate (0) Mar 17, 2010 Michigan

    Yeah, I should have gone with that one instead of the Imperial Rye PA. Once I had that, I decided it was time to switch back over to Head Hunter, then cool down with a couple Festina Peches ;)

    I haven't really looked for it for a while, but I haven't seen it the few times I've been shopping either...

    Ive also been looking for it. Haven't seen any in a long time. I like Head Hunter a lot, but prefer Rajah of the 2.
