    Green's Atlanta is estimating 3PM tomorrow. I would expect other ATL stores to also be Tuesday.

    I spoke to the beer manager for a Tampa ABC. She said to expect it this week or next week for us.

    Is this completely gone from Charleston? Just got back from FL, I realize I likely missed it but figured I'd throw out a feeler.

    You could have gone to greens on buford, then tower, then greens on ponce, then back to greens on ponce today to get at least a case.

    For a hype beer? I dont think so

    Not that hyped. Maybe for the new craft folks but lines are forming that I've ever seen. Just gouging on singles is the worst I've witnessed locally.

    You could have gotten a single 6 pack at Buford, Tower, and Ponce yesterday and Ponce again today. 4 6ers is a case.

    I was just kidding all. I just want to know the good small spots. The beer used to be hype for me. It is just ok.. Now.
    Its kind of like the KBS for double IPAs.. I am looking forward to black note is they release some this year.

    So I was told last night that 2/10 will be the release at a store in Durham NC. Anyone know if this is a statewide thing? Though for sure we'd see it this week

    Tryon Distributing wants to make sure your Hopslam is as old as possible by the time you get to drink it.

    $22.99?! It's good, but not that good. I guess I found my max price last year when it was $18.99 or $20.99.

    Yeah, the price this year is ridiculous. One sixer is enough for me this year. Hopslam was one of my all time favorites a few years ago, but that was also when it was 12.99. 6-7 years later, same recipie, and $10 more per six....makes me sad:slight_frown:

    Oh like you want me to tell you about the spot I stopped by last night that had Backwoods Bastard, BA Narwhal, and BCBS? Yeah not going to happen.

    Still not in SE VA, it's a shame once it get in, it will likely be 4-5 weeks old. I'm not saying "oh a 5 week old IPA is terrible" but freshness helps and yesterday I picked up a sixer of Nugget Nectar bottled barely over a week ago. I know NN is a little easier to come by, but still...

    Based on the volume we got last year, I think Backwoods Bastard is going to be available year-round in Macon. Not complaining.

    weaverr Aspirant (203) Jun 10, 2008 California

    I just picked up Hopslam in Macon yesterday and it was dated 1/17. 3 weeks old is reasonable enough for me. This year's seems less sweet than last year, which I would say is a good thing.

    If you're dying for an expensive bottle to watch a movie with, they have it at Midtown Arts Cinema

    Yeah, picked mine up at Just Tap'd because they were selling 6ers. Growler Spot has a 2 bottle limit. Carriage Hills Bottle Shoppe and Ocmulgee Traders in Macon also have it in stock.

    We don't live in Michigan. it didn't even hit most Michigan stores until 2 weeks of the bottling date. It hasn't turned to pumpkin juice just yet. A month is still perfectly fine

    If the concept of 3 week old beer brewed at the opposite end of the country is appalling, then we have failed as a society.
