    Has anyone seen any Firestone 16th Anniversary around MA or RI? Haven't been able to find a bottle anywhere around here!!

    I never saw it in RI. Been curious if it was ever going to show up myself.

    Per seekabrew, it doesn't come to RI. Admittedly that site is 100% accurate, some breweries aren't on there and some distros have changed a little bit

    All other FW beers come to RI. FW XV is still on shelves as is DDBA

    XV was available at Nikki's Liquors in Providence. I recently asked and they said they hadn't received it yet. I can't imagine that RI won't get any as we get Parabola, Double DBA, Scuba and have gotten XV.

    Last few bottles of XVI left shelves around New Years' here in Boston as far as I could tell.

    Damn that's so weird. XV was at everywhere you turned last year and this year, nothing. Hopefully there will be a second round of it that get's shipped!

    Pretty sure there are bottles at Magnolia wines in Watertown. Perhaps Marty's Big Buys on Beacon as well although the place is a hell of a mess. Gordon's in Waltham may have some. Calling a couple of these places obviously would save some time!

    I saw 16 on the shelf Friday in Western Mass, BM if you want to know where. Long drive, though.

    To add, popped into Wyoming Package today in Wyoming, RI. They had a few Firestone XVI as well as a ton of XV and BCBS (though the BCBS was all in the cooler).
