    Hey Portland, anyone know where I might be able to pick up some RR Consecration or Temptation? Called a couple places - so far no luck. Are they available around this time of year?

    Check whole foods and zupans locations. They often have stuff longer than the bottle shops.

    It's not really a bottle shop. Sure, they sell stuff to go, but the prices are geared towards the dine in crowd, and as far as bars are concerned their prices are pretty good. Another thought to consider is that they would probably be sold out like most places in town if they only charged $12.

    Yeah, understandable. $15.5 was the to-go price. $19 in house - roughly 50% markup from retail, which I suppose is the norm in many places.

    There's a Consecration on the shelf at Pastaworks on Hawthorne. $12.50 or something.

    The West Linn MofC has a shelf of the Consecration, priced at $12.49. The way things tend to move there, it'll all still be there a couple of months from now (so no need to rush on over). My impression is that they sell a fair amount of craft beer there, but "esoteric" stuff like consecration seems to stick around for a long time. They had a bunch of supplication and santification there as well today. (even a lonely last bottle of pelican imperial IPA, that I haven't seen any place else).

    The Imperial Pelican Ale is the same as the old regular IPA. They rebranded it to coincide with a price increase and the release of their English style 'single' IPA. But, you know it's fairly fresh at least since that only happened a few months ago!

    My secret beer store: Bi-Mart on Halsey and 122nd. The manager is a beer Geek. Always some Supplication there for cheapest I've seen. The guy must be a Scottish Ale fan - always has Traquair, Skull Splitter, etc...

    Really? The Imperial Pelican of late is an 8%er. The mainline Pelican IPA was not that high. Did they tweak the recipe?

    I believe the Pelican IPA was always 8%, and priced slightly higher than their competition, which caused confusion. It is now "appropriately" named, but the exact same beer, according to their reps.

    haha, an artful touche. They told me it was the same beer! Must have decided to embrace the imperial a little more in order to really justify the name change.

    the Pelican reps in VA told you that?

    Its been 8% for at least a few years. According to their brewery, its the same recipe. They had toyed with the idea of bringing back the actual Imperial Pelican Ale (still listed on here), but went with the rename and price increase to correspond with the introduction of Silvefspot English IPA. But it IS a big ipa. Again, its been 8% and 80ibu give or take for quite some time.

    Edit: I dont know if it has increased in abv over the years, but a half percent wouldnt be out of the realm of possibility for batch variation. I mean, they have been making this beer for awhile. But be assured, same beer, different name.

    I live in PDX and I'm the buyer at the Hop & Vine. Didn't realize my location still said VA.

    I would be curious to know when they changed the label then. It's not something I look for or buy all the time, but I always recalled it being 7.5%. That's the reason I assumed it was a different beer (not that .5% is a huge difference). In addition to the slight increase in the abv., I just assmed the recipe was different as well.
