    Soooooooo........ did I miss the boat on this one? Is there a handshake I should have been taught?

    Does anyone knows of a spot (preferably East-side Twin Cities), that still has this? All 3 of my local stores appear to have been skipped over and I'd really like to spread some love to a couple regular trading partners. Thanks all and cheers!

    To the best of my knowledge it has yet to hit the state. To be as polite as possible, the good folks handling this beer seem a bit pre-occupied, so it could have fallen thru the cracks on them.

    Nor did we see #1. Don't think we get that. From whatvi recall, it does not make it very far from Missouri

    Hmmm. Interesting. I could have sworn I've seen one or the other, but maybe I'm confusing it with one of the Collaboration Series. I know Iowa gets it... fuckers.

    I was able to score 2, have no issue trading one. Give me a large format Surly (not Smoke) and it's yours.

    LC3 is all over, I traded a guy in NC for one, hopefully it lands here, super tasty.

    LC2 came to MN but didn't leave our... I mean Wirtz's warehouse because we didn't receive enough to satisfy the market and not piss off some accounts. I haven't heard anything about LC3 but I would assume the same. But if we did get it, with the way the new management handles things, you would be more likely to find it at your big liquor stores rather than small niche shops.

    So what did happen to it then, personal consumption?

    Still sitting on the shelves around here. Trade newbie, but would be willing to work something out if someone really wants to grab a bottle.

    I would be willing to trade a Love Child #3 for a bottle of Surly Pentagram or any big bottled beer from Fulton, ie war and peace or worthy ad.

    Feel like I got a good deal finding this for $8.99...what are others paying for it?

    Ctrauty Initiate (0) Mar 4, 2013 Minnesota

    "A good deal" is an understatement at that price. Must have been somewhere in Minneapolis?
     
  26. mnbuffalo

    mnbuffalo Initiate (0) Jul 26, 2012 Michigan

    Where? I paid $19.

    Yes, Minneapolis
    Falls Liquor. Their prices are always good/great, usually not this great. I hadn't seen it anywhere else, thought it was pretty cheap, but didn't know how off they were, otherwise I may have said something. Good people at that store. Unfortunately, I think there was only 1 left on the shelf at 6 tonight.

    Picked up two, willing to trade one away if someone is in desperate need. Paid $19, so a large format bottle of around equal value would be fine. BM me.

    Got two bottles, two different stores, both $9.99. Distributor pricing error? Pretty sure this series is usually $16 - $20/bottle. Not that i'm complaining...

    4pm today, Surdyks, $8.99. Plenty of bottles left.

    KWMiles Initiate (0) Oct 23, 2012 Minnesota

    No offense Torgo, but as always...fuck Surdyk's.
    Falls had a bunch last night when I was there, a couple cases. Still that glorious price of $8.99. Plus they had a bottle open they were sharing.

    Agreed. Was there with a friend who needed to pick something up and saw it. Still couldn't pass it up at that price.

    Yeah, sounds like they are taking the road to price-gouging redemption!
