    Sounds like someone in Michigan was listening to my gripes . . . :)
    http://beerpulse.com/2013/02/bells-brewery-reportedly-expanding-to-new-york-soon/

    "Bell’s Marketing Director, Laura Bell, told BeerPulse on Thursday, 'We’ve decided that New York State will be our next territory expansion and we’ll roll out when we have enough beer to do so. No timeline as of now.' Bell’s Founder, Larry Bell, re-iterated and added, 'No set timetable- it will be our next state when we have enough beer to go around. Then, upstate first followed by the City.'"

    Wait wait, let's back up. Let me highlight something here.

    "Then, upstate first followed by the City."
    UPSTATE FIRST

    YYYYYYYYYYYYES!

    I was talking about Sculpin from Ballast Point. But yeah I saw that, and I actually did the same thing with 2012 vs 2013 and 2012 turns a little barleywineish.

    Here in central NC the hipsters are finally on to it, which means that it was much harder to find on store shelves this year. I guess I'll have to drink the PBR that they abandonned.

    Well I got the joke. That being said, it's crazy how defensive people get around here. I like some beers that everyone else seems to hate, but guess what - I don't care.

    Damn, I thought this was going to be breaking news about the drunks who killed a whole keg of Hopslam in one night and ruined a BAs night.

    Really? When? I usually have to wait until I go to Florida or Puerto Rico to enjoy Anything Bells. I'm not planning either until May (PR).
