    Prairie landed as few weeks ago. 'Merica and Funky Galaxy are the only ones that have come so far.

    A former coworker who now works for Superior told me that their wharehouse has Deschutes stocking up and ready to go. As for Bakwoods Bastard Rozi's posted via twitter & instagram that it came in a couple days ago.

    Great, so it'll be sitting in a warehouse for a couple months before it shelves..

    Superior isn't distributing Deschutes, Heidelburg/Rampant is.

    I'd love to know as well, I managed a bottle a couple weeks back and thought it was superb.

    Agreed. Isn't that roughly a $4 and $5 mark up for Lolita and Juliet? For what?.. 15 more milliliters and a fancy bottle... dumb.

    They were actually 650 ml bottles before, so this is 115 ml more.

    Which is roughly a 1 dollar per oz increase, which is still ridiculous.

    Sorry I had forgotten about the abv limit. Not trolling - legit inquiry.

    Any places I should check out? Or local brews? I am planning on visiting the Ohio taproom and crafted drafts.

    When it comes to bottled beer in Columbus, either Anderson's or Weilands are definitely the best in terms of selection. The Ohio Taproom is awesome (a good friend of mine works there) since they're the only place in the city that I'm aware of that counter pressure fills their growlers.

    I highly recommend picking up some Columbus IPA (or Bodhi if you find it on draft anywhere - no bottles unfortunately), any Rivertown sours (they're hanging around at a few places in Columbus) and Brew Kettle's White Rajah.

    Anderson's Sawmill posted GL Xmas Ale is in again...but at $13.99 a sixer. Everywhere else it has been $11.99. While I don't consider this a gouge, I just thought it my civic BA duty to call them out on it. This is a shame, because every time I have gotten hard to get things there, i.e. Three Floyd's and some Stone releases, they have always been at minimum. I figured they were the last to get a little gravy on the chin. Oh well.... Gentile's got some yesterday and sold it and 12 Dogs for $11.99.

    If I recall, the same thing happened at Weiland's last year with a higher price on GL Xmas.

    No reason to go anywhere but your local chain supermarket for Great Lakes Christmas Ale, really - it's all over the place so paying $2 extra per 6 pack is highly unnecessary.

    I just picked up a sixer of GL Christmas Ale for $8.99 at a Target! Everywhere else is $11.99. Obviously, I don't go to Target to buy beer, but I will always keep my eyes open in the future.

    Quick Q... I'll be staying in Galena, near polaris, for thxgiving. Where is the best bottle shop to find select ohio/middle america beers? I'm coming from CT, a different crop out here. I usually end up going to meijers for IPAs, but there has to be some specific bottle shops, no?

    If you're near Polaris then Aficionado's is the place to go - they've easily got the best selection out there.

    Goose Island Ten Hills pale ale showed up at a Kroger in Centerville, OH yesterday. Bottle date was 11/7/13!
    Very nice pale ale. 6.2% - 'Made with wheat' warning on the back label. And nicely priced @ $7.99 - all GI beers are currently on sale @ Kroger.

    Great Lakes Christmas Ale at $11.99/6pk in the Cleveland area is still a ripoff. I think it was $9 or $10 just a couple years ago and sold out once, and the media took hold of it and had a xmas ale blurb every night on the news for a month. GL ramped up production and now the stores are flooded with it every year. There are 10 other options for cheaper. GL xmas ale was good, because it was the only local option. Now that there are others, there's no reason it should be $12. Only a matter of time until they make it $10/4pk...lol

    Still cheaper/better than Hopping Frog's $8/9 bomber...fuck them.

    Sorry, I disagree wholeheartedly. First off, their beer is world class, which is more than you can say about 90% of the crap out there. Not to mention, their BA beers are the same damn price as Great Lakes, Revolution, etc. I paid $40 for a BA stout bomber at Three Floyds last week. Calling HF the king of overpriced isn't accurate at all.

    Because they're too classy to bother posting in this cesspool, on behalf of the good people at HF, right back at ya!

    Maybe it has less to do with them being overpriced and more to do with you being too cheap? I find their wares to be reasonably priced, including their barrel aged products.
