Is it just me or is it early this year?
It does seem early this year, by about 2 weeks. I think we didn't get ours at the store until the end of October or first week of November last year. I'll have to check to see what the invoice date was last year, but I don't think it was this early.
Hopefully that means we'll get Nugget Nectar earlier too!
That's just the nature of the market nowadays. Summer beers coming out in March, Pumpkin beers the first week of August. It is what it is.
Their website says mid-October through December, so seeing it now is about right.
Mad Elf always comes out in October.
Mad Elf came out the same week this year as it did last year. Cheers!
I'm fine with anything that gets these awful pumpkin and oktoberfest beers off the shelves sooner.
Anyone seen this around? It was just released yesterday or so, but made a few calls and no one has it or has any idea when they'll have it.
Usual spots in South Jersey have it. One noteable spot holding it for a later date in Nov. Most are one six pack only too.
There's more than 1 doing that. Two locations had limits of two 6pks/customer and case/customer last year. Both sold out in 1-2 hours.
It's just you. It came out this time last year.
Is there a demand on this? Every year my stores has tons after Christmas still in the cooler.
Just when it's first released. Everyone rushes to grab their fill for the season so shops put ridiculous limits on bottles. Then they are stuck with them for months after the holidays.
Even though this is far from the best holiday beer IMO, it's the one I am most excited for this winter! Maybe its because Ive had so many good times with this beer! Cant wait to pick some up!
Anybody see it on L.I. yet? Specifically Suffolk?
But unlike all the other gimmicky holiday ales Mad Elf can actually sit for a year or more and still taste great. That can't be said for most seasonal releases.
And I drank a bottle a few days ago and it is spot on this year. I feel Troegs is getting comfortable in their new brewery.
For Philly area folks, Trenton Road Takeout got a whole bunch in (still have them as of yesterday). I skipped right by them. Not really interested in them for some reason. The Beer Store Southampton got them in also, but posted on Facebook saying they won't sell them until mid November.
uh, 30+ minutes isn't really Philly area. I'm sure there will be plenty of Mad Elf in actual Philly soon enough.
I live in CC Philly, but personally consider anything around 30 minutes "Philly area" when it comes to beer access, especially if it's for something limited. That's a personal POV though as I frequent those places (along with Philly's Craft Beer in Oxford Valley) regularly.
I guess that makes sense to a certain extent. I wouldn't ever drive to near Yardley to buy something but I got tired of doing that shit a while ago. I barely feel like driving around Philly itself to get stuff nowadays.
Regardless, it's Mad Elf. It'll be everywhere in a week.
Even if it's a beer brewed with honey and cherries? I love Mad Elf, but I think there are many out there who find it just as polarizing as pumpkin beers.
You don't like Oktoberfest beers? Damn, that's my favorite seasonal style!
Stopped at Craft Beer Outlet yesterday (NE Philly) and they had a boatload of Mad Elf out in front for sale.
Actually, it did come out a bit earlier this year. My invoice dates for last year were 10-23 and a second shot of it on 11-7, where this year we got it on 10-14.
