    When is this supposed to be in stores here in IN?
    I tried emailing my local but no word, and I feel like if I would call they wouldn't know. haha
    Is there a set date or wha? I'm obviously a noob in the brew scene. haha

    Retail release is supposed to be March 15...not all stores abide by that though.

    If you're not already on the "lists" you're likely not going to have a shot at 60% of the bottles that make it to stores in your area.... of the remaining 40%, 10% will mysteriously never hit shelves and find their way to friends-of-friends etc... and the last 30% will have people trampling little-old-ladies to get.

    So yeah, I'd say "Negative Ghost Rider, the Pattern is Full" to your "buffer days"

    haha Well I mean I read at the release it did, but I dunno how much the stores get or anything. Or if it's different, just askin questions.

    Odds are it won't even see shelves at most places around Indy.

    If you have a decent beer store that sells a lot of founder's stuff (sells it.... not just has it sitting there collecting dust) then they'll probably get one case.... 2 if they are a really good account.
