    I saw that for packaging it is only being released in a four 16 oz can format vs six bottles like last year. This is one of the few new beers of theirs that I didn't get to try yet. Your feelings on the updated format? Anyone see it in your area yet and if so what was the price? Get to try this year's?

    Don't care too much about the format change as long as the price per ounce stays the same, so if it was $10/sixer last year I hope the 4 pack of 16oz cans is $9. That said, I prefer 6 packs of 12 oz cans/bottles over 4 packs of 16oz cans, for any beer.
    AmeriCanadian and GetMeAnIPA like this.

    Found the last 4 pack sitting on the shelf of a grocery store, $7.49. It only landed at a couple of places last year in Houston so I never had it. I will now be in search for this. Crap I just checked the Total Wine page and they are selling it for 13.99, not sure I like it that much, but I like it a lot.

    $11.99 plus tax for a 4 pack in Central PA. Wouldn't even buy it for $8 lol.

    I looked at a couple Total Wines in my general area and it is $11.99 for the four pack and a couple stores have six packs of 12oz left from the last batch for $13.49

    I'm rather disappointed they are still selling those 6 packs since this style obviously benefits from freshness. I've seen other smaller stores push old beer but Total Wine is usually pretty good about not doing so in my experience.

    Never had it but won’t buy at that price either.

    How they can charge the same price as Heady is crazy.

    I like it quite a bit. If I see it at a reasonable price, I’ll pick it up. I’m not a fan of the price increase in the format change.

    9.99 for a 4 pack here. Seems priced inline with its competition. Don't think I've ever had the beer

    12.99 here this year. Over priced and overly sweet this year.
