    Hello everyone.

    I'm from half way around the world but have a friend that lives in Anchorage Alaska. I was just wondering if any AK BA's could help me suggest to him where he might be able to find a couple bottles of Midnight Sun berserker.

    He has looked but haven't heard anything back yet. Not sure how fast this stuff goes but figured I would reach out and get some information to assist or call off the hunt.

    Thanks in advance,
    Cheers
    Nick.

    It was available a few weeks ago, but the last couple weeks, I have not seen it anywhere. Just this last week I was at La Bodega and the Brown Jug Warehouse on Old Seward and there was none to be found. There are a couple more places I plan to look, but I'm not optimistic. If anything changes, I'll let you know.

    Saw it at the Midnight Sun Loft / Brewery in bottles on Friday. Also saw it at the Brown Jug next to REI this weekend.

    Have your friend check at the actual brewery. If they don't have it they may be able to point your friend in the right direction.

    beertunes changed his avatar a while back; not sure but I think it was a peaceful handover.
    Now stay the eff away from my yin-yang.
    OP, QFC in U Village Seattle had a single bottle late last week. I got the second to last.

    I hope you got your bottles. I just came back from the brewery. I bought the 6 bottle limit. I was told there is only a case and a half remaining. There was someone else asking about Berserker before I walked out the door. You better hurry. I have also seen bootles of it at The Bodega, also in Anchorage.I'm not sure where else it is sold. Good luck.

    No word back yet. Communication is through my girlfriend, he is 'technically' her friend. Kinda just wait and see at this point.
