    LB Beaumont has three of their beers. California based. I've only had the IPA, and it was in 2009. I see their beers all the time in Asheville. Nice to see them here as well.

    Oh, and forgot to mention: Nectar Ales is coming as well - I was told today. They were owned by Firestone Walker. One awesome beer they used to do was Black Xantus. I don't know if they still are doing it at the new location in South Carolina. ​

    Good to hear about Nectar showing up. Their Red Nectar is super tasty and will be a welcome addition to stuff I can pick up locally.

    Any word on when Nectar will arrive? Their Black Xanthus is sublime.

    Nectar is here. But I'm not sure they kept Black Xantus. It's not listed on the Nectar website.

    Hmmm, I just got some in St. Louis a couple of months ago. Man, it was delicious.

    Yeah, I think Firestone Walker still makes it.

    Humboldt Brown and Nectar IPA are in stock at Chuck's on Three Springs in BG. Good stuff!
