    I'll also say that the Lowes Foods in Monkey Junction (corner of College and Carolina Beach Road) does growler fills. You can check their taplist here: https://untappd.com/v/lowes-foods/2551442

    Have a good time, and come back and tell us how it went!

    New Anthem is doing another can release on June 13th, Steez and New Jack again. new jack is getting some more whirlpool hops and will be triple dry hopped this time and Steez will have 50% more kettle hops- that plus WBC's DDH Tropical cans available makes this a pretty solid week!

    I see New Anthem has three can releases while I will be there: Hammer of God, Throwing Shade, and Five Thieves. Anyone had any of these?

    What is new in Wilmington? Had awesome beers over the summer from New Anthem and Wilmington Brew Co. Also, got some great beers at Candy Exxons. Heading there again around christmas.

    To your point, though... I need to put this on instagram too; I know you're not the only person who keeps up with things that way. And the only thing looking at my twitter is going to get you is a link to the blog, since I'm not tweeting the individual events; dunno why I even responded to your question with my twitter handle.

    Hopslam is out in Wilmington. Sounds like Hype Whale is hitting this week too.

    New Anthem is releasing pints of Neon God and New Jack this Wednesday the 31st. Local bottleshops should have them too.

    I'll be arriving in Wilmington Friday night.

    Are the Neon God cans pretty much gone, or is there a chance I would be able to find some at a store?

    I am not familiar with their distribution or the area in general.

    There were still cans available yesterday afternoon at New Anthem. I believe Hey!Beer received a small allotment as well.

    If you get a chance to stop at New Anthem this weekend for a pour or two, I highly recommend Juice Harp and Roadside Profit, both are ridiculously good.

    Thanks for the heads up! I’m staying downtown and New Anthem will definitely be the first stop tonight.

    @dogleg_left
    Juice Harp is one of the best NEIPAs I’ve had! It was a close call, but I preferred it to Neon God.
    Neon God cans still available at the brewery.

    I didn’t realize it was a collab with Newgrass. I wonder if Newgrass is offering it as well?

    I spoke with the owner of Newgrass on Saturday when she was at New Anthem and she said she was bringing a decent amount (I think 30 kegs, but not sure if they are sixtels or half barrels) back to the brewery/Charlotte area.
