    I know technically this is scheduled to drop tomorrow, but wanted to see if there had been any Columbus sightings, would love to have some for NYE.

    Have a safe and happy New Year everyone!

    Haven't seen it anywhere. Usually it seems Founders stuff shows up a few days later than the release date though. I'm assuming since we aren't too far from the brewery they don't ship out quite so early like they do with the East coast shops that have been selling it.

    I'm on the lookout in Columbus as well. I'm guessing Thursday/Friday it will hit most places.....but hoping to hear something about it today.

    Premium seems to do their drops at the stores in the campus area on Tuesdays and Fridays. I'll post if I end up seeing anything.

    Weiland's is saying they are hearing Friday, so I imagine it'll be on the truck to all the Columbus locales tomorrow.

    $11.99

    Sounds like they got a decent amount so I'd expect to see this showing up all over Cbus shortly.

    I stopped in Blacklick Wine & Spirits this evening and they had plenty of FIS left, probably 6 or 7 cases.

    Can confirm Kenny Road Market has it too, I picked up two four-packs (they are behind the counter).

    Columbus, consider yourselves lucky. I spent $14 and had it a week later than you Ohio boys and I live 2 hrs from the brewery!
