    My Muncie store said they were supposed to get some this week but the distributer already ran out.

    Well I had to actually place my order three days ahead of time to ensure I got what I wanted. I even sent my driver there to pick it up since they only deliver to the Broad Ripple area on Fridays.

    Anyone know a spot to get any on I-94 between Portage and the IL border? Trying to send my brother for some. Or just places to shop in general in that area? (not trying to threadjack so BM me if necessary)

    Not entirely on your route, but I will post anyway. When I was at Wiseguys in Merrillville yesterday, they still had a pretty big stash.

    Does this means it will eventually come to Illinois?

    You think so? With Sun King charging the same for a sub par cream ale and a decent pale I was more than ok with the price tag.

    For sure an oz difference, but when you look at fermentables and hop bite I think it is justified. I just think SK is crazy overpriced on everything they have ever done. 5$ growler fills are excluded only from that statement.

    I just picked some up from Kahn's and having one now.

    Get's a "Meh" from me. Run of the mill IPA IMO.

    To be honest, we barely ever get any Zombie Dust in Ohio. I think there's only been one wave of it since they announced ZD coming to OH, and it was extremely limited then. We get some ZD kegs once in a blue moon as well. I personally have no prob with HH goin to Indy, bc we're swimmin in it here in Cleveland. I'm sure that actually sounds selfish on my part if other parts of OH are missin out on HH.

    Head Hunter is pretty easy to find here in Columbus now, too. And I agree with you, I remember seeing one tiny wave of ZD in bottles here, and that was it other than the occasional keg here and there.

    I enjoyed HH myself, but I didn't find it amazing and I agree about the price (although i can get it for $10). I have bought 2 four packs of it so far, and probably won't be buying it too often considering my other options. At any time I can grab 6 packs of White Rajah ($11) or Columbus IPA ($9), and both are just as good as Head Hunter IMO, easy decision. At this particular point in time, I can grab 6 packs of Sucks ($11) or 4 packs of Great Lakes Alchemy Hour (same price as HH, much higher ABV), and I think these 2 beers are better than Head Hunter. Great beer, still a great deal if you are looking to make the bomber debate, but it is just a beer I'll have to pass on considering the other great IPA values around me.

    I cant give out all important information as I am in training for a job at the Warren DMV/Titling place. It is my job to make you find out about things after it is too late.
