    This may be old news to some of you. Yesterday I was at Gibbs and asked if there were any plans to can the Greensboro Pale Ale, Blind Man's Holiday. They said they would be canning it soon but the next up for canning was the IPA - Monkeysphere. Their ESB, The Guilty Party, seems to be widely available locally.

    This past week, I had a can of their gose at a local restaurant. Glad to see them make this move.

    I bet you're thinking about Preyer's GSO-zuh Gose or Art of the Mango-zuh Gose.

    When it happens, I'll keep GPA Blind Man's Holiday around all of the time. I love it! I regularly buy the ESB cans.

    I don't understand why they will not can the Blind Mans Holiday pale ale! If it had the shelf space of the ESB, it would fly off the shelves!

    The point of the post was that they are going to can Blind Man's Holiday in the near future. The IPA is the next up but I am anxiously awaiting this great Greensboro Pale Ale. I like the ESB and will continue to buy if.I'll buy the IPA but the one I really want is the GPA!

    I've been out of the country for two weeks but on my return I'm happy to see that Blind Man's Holiday is now available in cans at my local Lowe's Foods. Already in the fridge!

    Since this is already a Gibb's thread:

    Gibb's Hundred Brewing Moving to State Street

    On one side, I'm happy for Gibb's to be expanding. They've been maxed out at their current location and now that Monkeysphere and Blind Man's Holiday are in cans, they're going to have to devote more fermenter space to ensuring a steady stream of their cans on the shelves.

    On the other side, I'm bummed that Gibb's is leaving the South Elm area. They were one of the first places that led the charge in revitalizing that area and losing Gibb's definitely is a negative for downtown GSO.

    I guess it is bittersweet, like outgrowing your favorite Star Wars pajamas. Good for Gibb's, though. I look forward to checking out the new digs.

    Any idea if they'll distribute up north to VA?
