    It appears East Dubuque finally has it as well. Can anyone confirm? Selection at Family Beer & Liquor?

    Central Waters has hit. Picked up a 4pk of BB Peruvian, BB Stout and their IPA. This is nice.

    Waiting for CR to get theirs. Should be any time now I would imagine. Who is distributing CW in Eastern Iowa, anyone know?

    Apparently CW was nice enough to hold a shit-ton back for this release. They had a lot of all 3 of the limited at John's. I haven't been but a saw a pic. Still waiting for some word in CR.

    Get yourself the Barleywine. My god! It was slightly better than BCBBW, IMHO, which I thought was fantastic.

    This is a heady claim sir and I will gladly challenge your assertion post haste!

    Have CW kegs hit distro or just bottles? Not seeing any kegs on the latest JB inventory sheet but sometimes its not completely up to date.

    release party with kegs at ZombieBurger DSM was today, 4-7 pm. Peruvian morning at the very least, also some other kegs and bottles.

    Looks like Reds will be having kegs tomorrow.


    Stopped at Oakland rd on the way home and man, I walked out of there with all 3 reserves and got to try every beer they offer here. Additionally, the rep brought a bottle of Sixteen so I got to try that as well. As Ice Cube would say, today was a good day.

    (Might also need some more Peruvian Morning)

    Huge strike out on Sosus today. If anyone in the DSM area has an extra that they'd like to swap for a Pliny, BM me. I just got this PtE in a trade, so its fresh.

    I picked up the three Central Waters Reserve series beers tonight at Benz. It seems pretty generous that they held back the stout and barley wine...maybe it's more common than I think? Just cracked a barley wine. Pretty freakin good. Is everything from these guys worth checking out?

    And I'm going to be the typical beer guy and drink this beer and wonder who will be the next brewery to enter the state!(Besides Left Hand)

    Excited to see when/if Waterloo gets the high end stuff from CW. I have heard good things about Peruvian Morning. However, I have not really heard anything about their everday lineup. My buddy who lives in Wisconsin says the porter is the highlight of their everyday beers, but placed it well below the porter from Founders, Bells, Great Lakes, and Deschutes. I will have to pick up a sixer and see what I think.

    Really? I was told by the J. Bros rep last night that this was a "once and done" thing. Maybe that only applied to DSM?

    Perhaps it wasn't all out on the floor. But yes, that's what the rep said here, too.

    I got another case of each today. Should not have more until JB gets another CW shipment.

    More pseudoSue is being bottled today. Will be available in the taproom this evening and will hit accounts next week. Rainbow XHops bottles hopefully the week after!

    We just had our Peruvian Morning pulled from the shelf. Popped a bottle of it the other night and it's drinking perfectly find. I'd drink up on that one if you have some sitting around.

    Why was it pulled? I got a 4pk and it's tasting great to me too.

    Sampled it at Hyvee and it was amazing but haven't gotten into my 4 pk yet. Would be interesting to know the reason.

    Check your bottle dates. It seems CW has had periodic problems with the Peruvian Morning. I've got some that was bottled on 1/22 and its already lost a lot of coffee and gone a bit tart. There is another bottling that later than that one, that is thus far tasting fine.

    Was the pulling of the bottles this distributors decision or did CW ask you guys to do it?

    I'm sure it was a call from the brewery to pull it. Again, still a great beer right now, just wouldn't age it.

    I think the key word was more. Haha! I've already gotten after my first 4 pack, just trying to pace myself a bit!

    That doesn't add up otherwise you'd think it would be pulled from shelves here in DSM too. Same batch/shipment.

    Maybe they haven't called yet, I don't know. Just a heads up to not wait to drink the beer if you've purchased it.

    Has that shit gone bad again this year? Fuck. I just bought a four pack. This after buying two infected four packs last year.

    Its definitely off again. I drank my first one last night and I was going to post in here that it had that infected sour thing going on but I thought for sure that I was imagining things. I couldn't notice it as much as the beer warmed. I picked up a 4 pack in March last year and two bottles were awesome and two were very infected. Seems like the kegs are good though?

    Confirmed that PM was pulled off shelves in DSM yesterday afternoon as well. This was at direction from Central Waters. Must be a QC measure.

    I think everyone is just disappointed. It's such a good beer and a great value. I hate to see any of it being pulled.

    Is there any word on King Sue in DSM? I'm seeing kegs of it popping up in the Iowa City Market, but haven't heard a thing about it here. Really wanted to try this.
