    Any word on if Big Sky's Ivan the Terrible will hit CO distribution? Heard it hit some stores in Nebraska, 4200 bottles this year. Just wondering. Thanks!

    Unless something has changed, northern CO might get some but none for Denver area.

    I haven't seen any Ivan, was just at a couple spots earlier today.

    No idea about Olde Blue Hair...

    The new batch of Ivan doesn't come out until next month but I'd be surprised if the Fort doesn't get any.

    Ivan is on shelves in Missoula as of this week. Might take a bit to get down to you guys.

    So is it out and it'll just take a month, just like most of the limited releases we here in CO have to wait for? Been seeing it in the "hauls " thread too. I agree that a month would be perfect timing for me to make a trip to the Fort! Just don't wanna wait and miss out.

    I should have said, Ivan was on Missoula shelves this week. It's gone from all my honey holes already.

    Anyone know if we are getting this?

    Last time I was at the store and asked, the beer guy had recently spoken to his rep about this specifically and the rep did not know about this.

    looks like Ivan is starting hit shelves in other states.
    Any CO sightings yet?

    Picked up two bottles a week or so ago at Supermarket in FoCo. Wilbur's was out at that time. Haven't seen any since.
