    I know Key Lime Pie has just recently been released, but I figured I'd let you all know now that Peaches & Creme was bottled today. I'm going to guess that it will not be in stores for at least another week, but please be on the lookout if desired.

    In what is being considered one of the year's most highly anticipated Short's specialty 6pk bottle releases, Peaches & Creme has not been brewed or bottled since 2007 and was one of the most highly regarded beers from our Imperial Beer Series (750ml).

    Described as a high gravity golden ale fermented with lactose and fresh peaches, Joe Short used this eloquent bi-line to describe the beer's flavor profile: "Cream softness fused with the delicacy of prunus persica"

    Cheers!

    Thanks for the info, I am extremely excited for this one. I saved a bottle of the Imperial Peaches & Cream just to do a side by side.

    This is one I will have to go out of my way for. Short's Cake and Key Lime are interesting to try, but not something I can regularly drink. I have a feeling I would enjoy many of these.

    So this is much bigger then Shorts Cake and Key Lime right? It sounds very interesting

    If I have the money I may have to blind buy a case of this if I can fond someone that will sell it to me. Ive beenw wating for this. Hopefully I can find one after the 1st.

    Definitely gonna get a case if possible.

    Is that about the same as Shorts Cake and KLPie?

    Edit: I saw in the other thread that KLPie was about 500 cases.

    Who at Short's sold their soul to the devil to make such good and innovative beers?

    Hope I find some on Labor Day weekend in the SW corner of the state at my usual haunts.

    So, to clarify, is it going to be the 750ml bottles again or are these going to be 12oz six packs like the Key Lime and Short's Cake?

    EDIT: Jesus, I need to learn how to read.

    do you happen to know the closest shop to Chicago that would get this (or other Short's brews)? I've never really gone straight out of my way to buy Short's (usually just pick up whatever I find when I'm heading through MI). but I think I'm going to start making some exceptions. doing a tasting Sunday and would love to have some of this for it.

    Got a few sixers and a growler share of this. Absolutely incredible, very well done! Let it warm up a bit for best taste IMO.

    Closest will be New Buffalo Pharmacy or Acorn Theater in Three Oaks. You could also stop by Greenbush on the way.

    Oh.... uh... yeah... I was referring to Bud Lime-a-rita. Let it warm up and it tastes delic.... actually it tastes like donkey piss.

    Anybody have any tips on where to find this is metro Detroit? I called .ml in Birmingham and they said it sold out over two weeks ago.

    It was just bottled last week. They're thinking Key Lime Pie.

    I think this beer is a relatively small release so I'd be surprised if either place in New Buffalo will get any; but you never know. Liquor Cabinet in St. Joe get some good comments on this site but I've never been there to comment with any knowledge, but that may be your next closest choice. I really don't think very many places have received any yet because it was just hitting shelves beginning today. No one has reported any yet in Kalamazoo or Grand Rapids.

    Lol Lime-a-rita, we can't keep that stuff in stock steebo! Also can't wait to try some Peaches and Cream, hopefully a friend can score some when he is in Michigan.

    I've got some calls in to various shops in GR, one in particular that I know is pretty solid for getting limited Short's brews. I'm either getting a call hopefully today or Friday (that's when they get their shipments) letting me know that my six pack is waiting. :)

    Bud & Elsie's & Barney's are good bets in New Buffalo

    Will there be any of this (or anything else special) floating around Traverse City this weekend? Heading up to my golf club on Friday for the weekend.

    If you do, please let me know. my GF and sisters are going up there for a bachelorette party, nonetheless mules. (and i won't horde, a sixer or two will suffice)

    Drake's in Kalamazoo only had one six pack and some singles left after I got my six pack. I don't know how much other stores in the area got delivered today.
