    We are currently waiting on label approval. But it's so close I can taste it.

    Funny you should post this now. I was just thinking about it and was about to post a query. Thanks for the heads-up

    A week or so ago I was asking the beer guy @ U Village QFC about this one, since that's where I picked up some Arctic Devil. He sounded pretty confident that he would be getting some. Chuck's also got AD so I'd think he'd get this too. Not sure if that's always how it works though.

    Not that I know of. I got some there back in February/March. I doubt it lasted a week.

    Was at the brewery a few times this week. They said berserker will be released soon. Also, son of a berserker was amazing on tap. Loving me some MS and the 16 bottle box I brought back with me :)

    I was at MS in mid June hoping to time my trip accordingly and..... NO! Was told still aging and they will release it when it is ready.

    Tick tock, tick tock, tick tock, tick tock....

    Probably not, but it seems like no SF Bay Area love either. So just SoCal only? :(

    I was at MS last night and was told they are waiting on labels. No other timing info but must be imminent. 2010 available on tap at Humpy's- absolutely delicious.

    It was released yesterday....very nice as always. Although it was only in wood (bourbon and wine) for six months rather than a year this time around.
    Also the cooler upstairs at the brewery is full of Planet Series Beers.:)

    Please tell me this hasn't already come and gone from the Seattle area. I haven't been able to chase distributor trucks for the past couple of weeks, and this one seems to be flying particularly low...

    My wife is a beer and wine buyer and I know for a fact it hasn't hit yet. I think she said WA is getting 85 cases.

    Congrats on picking a wife who's in the right profession.;)

    EDIT: Just saw this new tweet from Midnight Sun: "Berserker hits select Anch. stores today. Due to high volume demand we have readjusted and we have 30 more cases in The Loft. Hurry"

    If anyone is able to pick up some bottles at The Loft for a trade to CA, drop me a line and we'll work something out. I'd love 6 if I can get them. I've got plenty of stuff including Bruery, RR, Boulevard, Lost Abbey, Cantillon, 3F, and more.
