    Melrose Wine & Spirits recently has a thing where you can buy individual cans to mix and match and make a 4 pack or 6 pack yourself. It's costly, yes, because the individual cans range anywhere from $3 to $8, but it's fun to be able to take a bunch of different new cans home.

    TWHB has Monster's Park W/Coffee nitro 12oz cans....... for $19!!!!

    They had a bunch though. I'd have bought that $250 12 pack if money was no object

    A few weeks ago, I saw this at TW Redondo in the cooler. I was geeked out and then I saw the price. I thought the tag was misplaced and that price was for something like a 750ml bottle and the cans were in the wrong spot. I had to actually read the label to make sure it wasn't a mistake.
    I mean, is it that good? On top of the fact that MT nitro cans suck donkey balls.

    They were on sale last week at Seagate Liquor for $9.00. Might check if they have any more.

    To be fair, $19 is only a few dollars more than Modern Times sold them for at release. I think cans were a little over $16 at release.

    Way too rich for my blood though.

    Right, on the other hand, Windsor had them for $14.50 because he said he felt bad charging $16, I'm assuming he didn't take a loss.

    Not a MT member, but aren't their bottles 22oz and usually $30? I mean it lines up if you do the math, but I agree on sticker shock for tiny formats.

    Absolutely. But doesn't line up with TW price. I bought a couple cans at $14.50, but I'm a sucker for big, BA nitro stouts.

    It was just released today at the brewery. Draft may be around Jay. I thought it was crushable at 10%. Would love to get a 4pk of this one. Fingers crossed.

    Saw this the other day in a local OC market. Can't say if the ABI rep set it up this way but wouldn't surprise me.

    Hey, I recently moved to the OC (Irvine) after living in Chicago for quite some time. Is there an associated thread that highlights some of the best bottleshops in the area? I'm looking to expand beyond BevMo and Total Wine to learn a little bit more about the local offerings available in this market.

    Hi-Times in Costa Mesa shouldn't be too far, and FCP Woodbury has bottles and a good to great taplist most of the time.

    Whole Foods has been another good spot, although Amazon could be ruining that :confused:

    Skimming through my IG I came across Maine Lunch on tap at Select Beer Store. Now I have never been to SBS but I've heard a lot of good things about this place. I've had Lunch plenty of times in my days. Way before it showed up here in SoCal (when it became a mess). I had to do a double take on the Lunch post. $12 for a 8oz pour. Really? Rent must be extremely high in Redondo Beach area. I had a full 16oz pour of it a while back at BT's in HB for $8 or 9. It wasn't worth it. I love Lunch and Dinner but it was either old or off.

    That was a mistake. Its $8 for 12oz. They have guests draw those signs sometimes and must've got it reversed.

    But you are not wrong, rent is stupid high in RB. haha

    Hollingshead has a nice carry-out selection as well as on-tap, which is why they're so groovy.

    I haven't been to Ramirez in a long time so I'm not sure if they still do it, but they they used to post photos of new/rare arrivals on their Instagram then hide them in the back to trick people into coming into the store even though they weren't selling what they advertised. It really soured me on them so I stopped going there.

    I saw the Sierra Nevada Fall Pack at Hawthorne Costco. $25 for a case. Nothing earth shattering but I know people enjoy it and it comes out to about a $1 a beer.

    @Izzy_Izumi Wine country doesn’t have any, but the place down the street that used to be Stearns Liquor has 6-packs available. They also have the new fresh hop IPA from Fremont.
