    I am going to passing through on I-80, and I would love to hear any recommendations on a beer store I could stop by on my way through. I am really wanting to find some PseudoSue, so a store with that would be great!

    It will be hard to find pseudoSue around here as it usually disappears the same day it is delivered. Last delivery day was Tuesday. As for beer stores, I'd go to John's Grocery on Market Street. Not too far off of I 80.

    This. You owe it to yourself to stop at John's! You will be happy you did.

    As already mentioned, even though Sue was delivered on Tuesday, you won't find it in IC, unless you want to drink it on tap. That said, as also mentioned, John's is well worth a stop even without Sue.

    You can get a growler of Sue at The Sanctuary Pub, which is also in Iowa City. Also a MUCH better value than the bombers. Good luck and safe travels!
