    Looks like a very limited amount of Drangon's Milk w/ Raspberries is hitting some DSM area accounts today. Appears to be one case per account.

    They did hop squared around the time iowa lifted the ABV cap. Hopefully this attempt is better.

    How raspberry-y is it? I'm not a fruit beer guy, but I do like me some Dragons Milk . ..

    Does anybody know if TG delivered any beer today to DM, CR, IC or QC area?

    I love Teresa and Tom, but Millstream shouldn't be allowed to make American IPAs. I want them to do great things but they need to do a better job marketing their cores and seasonals that are so strong (German Pils, Hefe, Oktoberfest, the ridiculous pumpkin stout, etc.) rather than try to compete with other American IPAs—black, imperial or otherwise. In rap parlance, they need to stay in their lane.

    Dissident dropped today. 16 cases for the whole state. Good luck kids. Not sure if they're splitting cases to try to please the whole state's top accounts, but I don't think so. Seems like a case per account and just not many accounts.

    Prairie Trail got a pallet deal from Iowa Beverage/Founder's. 7.99 4pks of Dark Penance, Rübæus, Double Trouble, and (wait for it) Breakfast Stout. The former three are pretty old, of course, but the BS 4pks being closed out are only two months old. Helluva deal!

    Any idea if this landed in central IA anywhere? Was hoping to get a chance to try it.

    Prairie Trail had it behind the counter and Ryan had his out on the shelf at Fleur. Also heard it's behind the counter at Westlakes.

    You missed the opportunity to say "The Dissident is here". Pearl jam is disappointed.

    I am disappointed, too…especially since I had that song stuck in my head the whole time I was picking up bottles :stuck_out_tongue: It's tasty now, but the wine barrel-aging is a bit much, hoping it becomes better integrated with time.

    Murph answered on Twitter, Monday and Tuesday. So probably IC/CR Monday and DM Tuesday if history is any indicator.

    Any DSM BAs headed to the Green Flash event tonight at Keg Stand? I will probably swing by after getting off work at 8. Delbrucci and that West Coast firkin are just too tempting.

    Any updates on southern tier in Iowa? Last I heard was sometime in 2015 when I asked last summer. Hoping they start distribution for Creme Brule!

    They're supposed to come in February I heard, though I haven't heard any updates in a while either.

    Dammit! Missed this thread on Friday and now probably missed that Dragon's Milk with Raspberries. Really wanted to try that too. :slight_frown:

    dragonaut Aspirant (276) May 29, 2005 Iowa

    Fleur had a bunch on their shelves. I know Blake at PT said it flew off shelves Friday but I bet some stores still have it. North Ankeny got a case and they don't turn over as quickly, if nothing else I'd check there.

    Where in Cedar Rapids (or IC if near I-80) does Toppling Goliath drop ? Wife is out there today and wanted to get some for a relative that is in town but leaving tomorrow morning so will miss the Des Moines drop. Thanks

    Oakland Road Hy Vee and Benz Beverage. Hy Vee is kind of more on the North side and Benz is on the kind of South side of town.

    Coralville Hy Vee Wine and Spirits is closest to 1-80 or maybe Johncys in North Liberty.

    I saw it in the cooler at Cyclone Liqour in Ames on Saturday. It looked like they still had plenty left.

    Wine styles in Coralville landing area has a great beer selection and usually gets a good supply of TG.

    This will be your best bet if you want off of I80. Otherwise, Oakland Rd just posted they got some.

    Any idea how long it generally lasts? I'll be coming through Iowa City early tomorrow morning and was hoping to pick some up at the Coralville Hy-Vee, assuming they get some.

    It all depends on the amount and beer. GNUG and Zeelander will stick around a couple days to a week. Pseudo is usually gone in 24-48 hours. Should be ok I would think.
     
  33. HawkeyeNation

    HawkeyeNation Initiate (0) Jun 18, 2013 Iowa

    At Wine Styles, it sticks around quite a long time actually. It's relatively new and people don't really think to go there. I got Sue and others one time after it had been gone everywhere else for a couple of days already.

    Is the Winestyles the same price as Hyvee? The one in Dsm tends to be a little more than HyVee's sell it for
     
  35. HawkeyeNation

    HawkeyeNation Initiate (0) Jun 18, 2013 Iowa

    The Hyvee on Oakland Rd tends to be a little higher than most places, so I think Wine Styles would be the same price or cheaper even.

    Anyone see any Dissident still lying around? That's one I'd like to try and haven't seen anywhere yet.

    Try Westlakes, I know they got it and had it behind the counter. Call Fleur but since it went to the shelf instead of behind the counter it's probably gone by now. It's 16 cases statewide and I'm not sure how many wound up in the metro up but I bet if you call around you can probably dig up a bottle or two still. Definitely call before just driving around to Hy Vees, though. Stores that are likely to still have it will probably have it behind the counter.
