    I went to Holiday Market in RO today, and came upon cases of Bomb!, Funky Gold Mosaic, and Prairie Standard. I never heard anything about their distro (I believe it to be Shelton Bros.) hitting Michigan. I'm super pumped, as I love a good Bomb! every now and then, and I'm also excited for their Noir series to hit when they come out now. Are people are seeing Prairie in other areas? Glad they're finally coming to the Great Lakes State!

    I spent way too much money at holiday market today. Bomb is so good though!

    I hated BOMB! I admit cost put me off of this one.

    Pirate BOMB! was significantly better (I really liked the rum tint), but neither BOMB!s are worth the $10/bottle.

    I am most excited to try some of their other beers, namely Noir.

    Overall, more dist in MI is good news.

    Part of me is happy I won't be spending $10/ bottle of Bomb!
    Part of me is sad I won't be spending $10/ bottle of Bomb!

    Well, Holiday always has the most "fair" prices in the area, and it was still $8.99 per. :/ Definitely not an every day beer, but it's nice to know I can get some when I want without trading for it!

    With the Shelton Bros coming to MI, I can't wait to see Cantillion make a comeback. The heads of the MI beer nerds might implode.

    Are we sure that Shelton Bros is back in Michigan?

    I'm not sure they are exclusively doing Prairie distro. I moved to AA from Kansas City about 3 months ago and prairie had just come to Kansas separate from Shelton. By contrast, Prairie and Shelton had both been in Missouri previously.

    So does that mean everything Shelton carries eventually?

    Depends on what the distributor brings in, Shelton has a pretty expansive portfolio, I can't imagine them carrying them all

    Increased distro in MI is awesome! If Michigan could get something like Mikkeller or Anchorage too that would be great, and if we even had a shot at some Cantillon or Drie Fonteinen that would be amazing!

    We are getting Anchorage and Mikkeller now, Holiday Market posted a huge list of beers they got on Friday:

    Prairie Bomb!
    Prairie Funky Gold Mosaic
    Prairie Gold
    Prairie Standard
    Anchorage Anadromous
    Anchorage Galaxy IPA
    Anchorage Mosaic Saison
    Dieu de Ciel Peche Mortel
    Dieu de Ciel Aphrodite
    Freigeist Abraxxxas
    Freigeist Salzspeicher Sour Cherry Porter
    Freigeist Salzspeicher Sour Raspberry Porter
    Mikkeller Beer Geek Brunch Weasel
    Mikkeller Wit Fit
    Mikkeller Better Half IPA
    Mikkeller Black Hole Imperial Stout

    I'm guessing we will be seeing more soon at other stores as well, just give it a couple weeks IMO. I am dying to try Peche Mortel again, I haven't had it in years.

    I'm guessing the west side of MI won't be getting any Prairie dude, sorry.

    I had the pleasure of going to dieu du ciel in April. It was absolutely incredible. I second the excitement for them being here.

    What's a good price for Bomb? I found some bottle driving through Indiana yesterday. I paid $18 for two bottles. I will pay a little extra to get some good beer not in my state if I have never had it before. But I won't pay that price for it again.

    Missed out on Bomb! but didn't love it the first time I had it.

    Just found an Okie on a shelf. Happy.

    Shelton Bros. Just dropped another two huge orders at holiday. First on Thursday with some 3f and then vanilla noir and lots more bomb today. I was to nervous to pull the trigger for 30 dollar sours, but I'm excited at the prospect. Maybe next time. Hah!

    Picked up a Vanilla Noir at 8 Degrees Plato the other day. Stuff is delicious but pricey - I think it was $11.99/bottle :slight_frown:

    I was in Holiday market in Royal Oak last weekend and they had like 3 cases of BOMB for $8.99/bottle. Picked up a few.
