    Surprised they're asking no bottle shares

    The Fat Joe release bottle share probably got a little out of hand, I think people were trying to drink the cold away. I imagine people that live in the area were upset about the noise, the leftover empties (pick up your trash, assholes) and the copious amount of public urination that was occurring as well. No inside info here, just my guessing.

    I will agree that the Fat Joe release got pretty out of hand. Way too many hammered people in line. After reading Pulpit Rock's comments on Facebook, I think they just want to avoid something like that again.

    It was way out of hand at Fat Joe, the arsholes that insisted on playing loud music all night and then the car alarm going off continuously wreaked it for everyone

    Seriously, how big of a self-serving twatwaffle do you have to be to insist on playing your shit music at high volume at 3:30 in the god-damned morning?

    The Fat Joe release was just crawling with idiot douchebags who couldn't handle their booze and made complete asses of themselves.

    I don't blame PR for putting the kibosh on bottle shares in line after what I saw that day. It was beer culture at its worst. Entitled bozos who had to show off their beer cellar in public and being aggressive, demanding, and incapable of controlling bodily functions.

    It sucks that a few bad apples ruin shit, but I completely get where Pulpit is coming from.

    Totally agree, I love doing some beer sharing in line but that day was unlike anything I had ever seen!

    Yeah, they announced a week or two ago they are moving from crowlers to all 4 pack 16 oz cans from now on. Unfortunately still no distribution outside of Iowa.

    I’d be really surprised if PR ever distros out of state.

    They’ve been playing with the canning line for a bit. Got to try some Pilsner Mikel and C’s Get Degrees that were run through it. Everything was well carbed and held up well.

    I wonder what distro will be like for the cans at all. We get periodic kegs at select accounts in the DSM metro but Pulpit doesn't have many more accounts than Alluvial up in Ames. It's just a handful. Most of what they sell is own-premise, except for the Saftshake/Hy-Vee Market Grille deal. I wonder if we'll really see them hit retail here. I would love to get Loopy Lynn cans without a 7 hour roundtrip trek.

    Just wanted to capture this for posterity. :sunglasses:

    In Wisconsin out of state breweries can self distribute and I believe it was Oliphiant that found a loophole that to do the same in Minnesota. The Twin Cities and Madison are closer and faster to get to then Des Moines. If Pulpit Rock is eyeing cash infusions I'd expect them to start dipping into the MN and WI wells just as easily as relying solely on Iowa. They're already achieving the recognition Toppling Goliath had a few years ago minus the Twitter hyperbole.

    They've said taproom only for the cans, no distro

    If I’m wrong, it won’t bother me.

    PR could absolutely distribute out of Iowa. My opinion is that they don’t aspire to.

    Anyone in the know...know what the bottle release schedule looks like for the 2nd half of the year?! I've heard something about BA Rechoncho and I know there is an anniversary party late-summer but I don't think that involves any bottles released (though I could be wrong).

    I think they are doing a wine barrel aged Gallagher for the anniversary. I don't think they are doing another BA stout release this year
