    I was following this on Twitter, and per Chipper they're still not ready to head into Denver yet. Hopefully that'll be their next milestone, although it'll be nice to see more of their stuff up north, too. The last couple times I've been up to Ft. Collins it's been tough to find Master Thief, which is one of my faves.

    I'm pumped! I've only come across one bottle of brewed by them (The Fearless Youth) that a friend brought to a tasting just out of random and it was pretty great. Normally I'm not a big dunkel guy but this was much different than my previous experiences.
    Now I can actually expect them in local stores. Can't wait!

    Nice to see more distribution for them. They make some damn good beers. Fortunately, they're available in Boulder, only about twenty minutes from me.

    I used to see their bottles at Applejack. Guess that has changed!

    I contacted GB about having their stuff in the store, which they were all for....I just had to go up there and pick it up. Can't fit much into a Kia :)
    But I bet Applejack could manage.

    I guess I haven't been paying enough attention to these guys to know if that specific beer is one of them, but their stuff has consistently been on the shelves since I moved up here to FC.

    I think it could just be their style of bottle art - sometimes you think it's one thing, but it's another. There are usually plenty of bottles around, but just not the one I was hunting for. My last 3 trips up to Ft. Collins, the only place I could find Master Thief was at the brewhouse itself. That's their resurrected German Porter. That one and Fearless Youth (dunkel) are terrific everyday drinkers.

    Could be bitter/sweet for some folks, they're currently self distributing to us in Boulder, but American Eagle doesn't distribute to us so we may not be able to get their beers :(
