    We get at least 6-8 different MS brews in SoCal, from Artic devil to Panty Peeler. But that's only fair since you guys snag all the Cantillon.

    Well, if you see some Berserker and can send me some, I'm happy to send you some Cantillon in return :)

    Defined how? We got a ton of Arctic Devil, and I think it's been a while since Berserker has been made. Maybe we'll get a bunch.

    It's landed in Seattle! Bottleworks has it. Last Drop got theirs today. That's where I picked mine up. As a side note, Seattle now gets stuff from AleSmith too. I did not know they expanded to WA.

    Saw it for $16.99, with a new (not nearly as awesome) label. Beer is part of the "Alaska's Most Wanted" series. Did this cause the price to go up? Or was Berserker always more expensive than Arctic Devil? Arctic Devil was around $14-15.

    And given that I was able to pick up AleSmith Speedway Stout for 11.99, I went ahead a skipped that Berserker. Looks like I won't be getting any Berserker this year. There are just too many good impy stouts around these days to overpay for MS, e.g., the aforementioned Speedway Stout, Parabola still around, Stone IRS still around, Deschutes XXIV (I know it's technically not a stout) hitting the shelves, etc.

    Didn't last long. I was there at 5:30 and they were all out. Only one case. Not sure if there was a limit.

    Well it was on the shelves at lunchtime so I wouldn't have expected it to last till 5.30 .

    Managed to grab a bottle at beer junction, and I couldn't pass up a bottle of Alesmith IPA......I know it's been mentioned in this thread already, but we should all be so stoked that we can have Alesmith all the time now!!!!! If they could just make their IPA in 4 or 6 packs I would be the happiest ba.

    For those north of Seattle, Mill Creek Central Market just got in a single case. Limit one per customer, sold from the back room. Ask for Nick, Spencer or Erik in the wine department.

    Yes, it should start appearing on Tuesday, unless there's a shop I'm unaware of that gets deliveries on Monday.

    Looks like more of this is popping up around Seattle.

    Both Beer Authority and Last Drop got some this afternoon.

    So the big question is...has anyone tried this years batch yet and if so what did you think?

    I had a bottle the other night, really good, super suuuuper viscous, I loved it, but it will definitely get better with some age, it's a little all over the place right now, tons of flavors but they just need to come together. Just get more than one bottle so you can try it right now.
     
  36. MicroFanatic

    MicroFanatic Mar 21, 2009 Washington

    Thanks! Will definitely try and seek some out in Seattle tomorrow. More viscous the better!
