    Went out with friends tonight and unexpectedly came across a log of Bourbon County Brand Stout at The Holy Grail Pub in Epping. $6 for a 7 oz. pour (limit 2). It was delicious. I know we all groaned when the state pulled the plug on bottles a while back, but logs are obviously in the state. I can only assume others will pop up soon. Anyone else see this at their local? Cheers!

    Saw it at the Barley Pub in Dover about a week ago. Not sure if they still have it or not.

    So does anyone know if bottles may trickle in to the state? Seems logical given that the intention of GI is to produce this year-round.

    Not sure... There are still plenty of bottles in Maine though. Came across 3 cases sitting on the floor in a shop in Portland on Tuesday.....

    I just wish the price would come down a bit. I love this beer, but at its current price point I had to split a 4-pack with a buddy. Ah, first world problems! Seriously, though, $15 four packs seem reasonable if they go year-round with this.
