    Marion Hy-Vee had several Stone Espresso IRS, regular IRS, a few 4 packs of Founder's Imperial Stout, and about two cases of Love Child #3 for anybody that's looking for more of these.

    Just had a 2011 Olde Bluehair. I was blown away. Best barrel aged Barley Wine I've had in a long time.

    Is this beer a boozy mess or is it worth a shot?

    I thought last year it was a hot mess. I bought a for pack & only drank one. I'm waiting until 6-18 to open another just to see what has happened to it. I doubt I'll buy it this year. YMMV tho, each palate is different.

    if you're near El Bait shop or something I'd recommend asking for a sample. A lot cheaper than the 4-pack.

    I agree that last year it was pretty bad.

    Anyone know where and when to get RuinTen around Des Moines? I see that it is available in some markets already...

    Found some Brewmance in Carroll, IA - really nice beverage manager there.

    Has anyone seen any Prairie Noir in Iowa?

    The only Prairie beer I've seen in Iowa so far has been Prairie Hop. You might tweet at Abu Nawas Beverage on Twitter and ask if they have gotten anything else from Prairie in yet, as I'm pretty sure they are the distributors here.

    Winestyles has the Prairie Ale, maybe more - I think Kegstand has a couple different ones on tap, but not sure which ones.

    Was the guy's name Zach that you spoke with? For being a small community, that store has got a killer selection.

    CLaBarre Initiate (0) Feb 22, 2013 Iowa

    I don't recall, their selection was as good as Pleasant Hill and Fleur in DsM (other than the occasional TG beers) - pretty amazing.

    I heard a rumor this Prufrockstar guy is going to be in Cedar Rapids/Iowa City at the end of August. If there's any interest in having a tasting or setting up an in-person trade while I'm around, send me a message.

    Pleasant Hill HyVee just tweeted that bottles of Boulevard/Sierra Nevada Terra Incognita just arrived today.
     
  21. Roudy1

    Roudy1 Initiate (0) Sep 29, 2012 Iowa

    I wonder how long until we see it over by Cedar Rapids?
     
  22. BottleCaps80

    BottleCaps80 Initiate (0) Jan 12, 2013 Iowa

    I'm going to preface this saying that this is a huge rumor and to take it for what it's worth....

    ... but, the Pleasant Hill HyVee tweeted pictures of Moon Man & Totally Naked saying that they say were dropped off by their vendor today and that they say we may be drinking New Glarus beers here " by the time the snow falls."

    https://twitter.com/PHillHyVee/status/350761287594147840

    I really hope that isn't just some shitty joke. I know both the manager and assistant manager at the PHill HyVee pretty well though and don't think they'd tweet that if bullshit. NG in Iowa would be boner-inducing.

    no chance of new glarus being distributed in Iowa. I jokingly asked Deb a month ago and she gave me a very stern look and replied "never."

    One reason I'm glad we go back to northern Illinois 5-6 times a year...easy access to NG. Their TP Berliner Weisse is amazing!! And easily the best fruit beer available.
     
  25. BottleCaps80

    BottleCaps80 Initiate (0) Jan 12, 2013 Iowa

    Their Berliner Weisse is indeed amazing, but it has no fruit in it. :wink:

    pretty sure grapes are still considered a fruit

    LOL, I mean NG has the best fruit beers available, not that the BW is an amazing fruit beer. Their Thumprint IIPA was quite nice as well.

    I apparently need to sit down with a bunch of New Glarus. I've had several. Like Moon Man, love Black Top. The rest, meh. I'm clearly missing something.

    ...by the time the snow falls. In hell?

    That would be awesome, though. I'm rooting for you, Iowa.

    Abu Nawas' updated their Facebook saying they received some limited beers from Prairie Ales and a few other breweries. I'm really hoping they got some Bomb! and Prairie Noir...ugh.

    The third I believe

    Last we had was the 12.21.2012 release.

    Has anybody else had a chance to try the Backpocket Anniversary Ale? Surprised the crap out of me...so good. When I asked about bottling they said they were waiting on label approval, that was two weeks ago or so.

    I thought it was pretty solid. Wasn't ground breaking by any means but it was a really nice imperial stout.
     
  39. BottleCaps80

    BottleCaps80 Initiate (0) Jan 12, 2013 Iowa

    Yeah....I had it at the Iowa Craft Beer Fest a few weeks ago. Definitely a beer I would drink regularly if bottled.

    has anyone seen TG Bottles (besides Dorthy's Lager) in Mason City? I'm stuck here for work and would love to bring some back if they are anywhere. The best selection I've found here is at a Hy-Vee on 4th and it is rather out0of-date on most products.
