    is it confirmed being distributed this year? I dont remember us getting any last year, I picked it up at founders at the CBS release I think.

    Fairly certain it saw Chicago distribution last year (or at least it did for sure 2yrs ago). It seems Wisconsin has gotten some already.

    It was in Chicago last year, so I expect the same this year.

    Haven't seen it yet in IL, but I picked up a 4pk at Woodman's in Kenosha on Saturday morning.

    Very limited distro, but it started hitting today.

    And Founders has sent at least a little every year since 2008. I fondly recall buying a 4pk at Andersonville Fine Wines & Spirits back in '08, and this was before Founders even put artwork on the 4pk's...they were just plain white 4pk holders with a sticker on'em.

    Chicago folks might want to look behind the mounds of BCBS and see if it's lurking back there.;)

    Called a couple of Binnys in Suburbs both are out The first Binnys I called said it was gone in about 15 min
    I was lucky to get a 4 pk from another bottle store I go to (they are out too mine was the last 4pk)
    Stuff goes quick but tasting it right now I know why

    I picked up 3 six packs at the Peoria HyVee today. $10 a pop. I intend to get more. It's absolutely awesome.

    This beer isn't that good. Please don't buy any more of it.

    Hope they still have some. Was it in the case or did you have to ask for it? I'll swing up there this afternoon

    That's weird since they are in 4-packs?

    It was in the case. Didn't have too much in there when I got mine. Had singles and 4 packs. Good luck!

    I called the shop at the brewery today and the guy who answered the phone claimed they hadn't had any in stock there yet.

    My beer guy in the northwest burbs said it was pretty limited distribution and he only got a case of it. Anyway I walked out of the store with a 4-pack, tried one earlier today and let me say it was a pretty, pretty, pretty, pretty tasty brew

    Any sightings in the far NW burbs? Algonquin Binnys was out before I even knew the beer was coming.
