    Hi fellow sac guys. Anybody see any Celebration Ale or Narwhal ye? What new goodies have you guys seen in some stores in the area?

    Can't wait to get some Abyss on tap this year too.

    This might not help much, but I've seen Celebration at Safeway here in Redding and Narwhal at a local liquor store. They've both been here for a week or two.

    Total Wine on Arden, and Whole Foods on Arden both have Narwhal. No one in Sac has Celebration yet.

    Pangaea has a nice selection, but also rapes people with their prices.

    Not much of us take Pangea seriously. It's usually a place most of us only go too once.

    This isn't the first time Markstien has pulled this crap before. I know they have it in the city too, but refuse to put it out. The continue to stock a lot of local shelves with 3 month of Torpedo.

    Hopefully I can grab some Celebration next week without having to drive all out to Davis for it.

    Davis still doesnt have it either man. Called the beer shoppe, whole foods, nugget, etc.

    Markstein has went downhill since Dylan left to start up Sam Horne's. Unsure if it is related, but a fact nonetheless. Picked up some DFH 75-minute at Total Wine yesterday. They still had at least one case on the floor and unsure of how many other cases in the back (0 or maybe a few).

    Also a rumor that 2012 Abyss will be in next week too...

    We may have to roshambo to see who drives to Final Gravity...

    I got a case! Was surprised to see that nugget had Bruery Fruet for only 20 bucks as well. Had to pick one up.

    Looks like a job for abecall to go to Davis for some Fruet.

    Bevmo Fairway has some Celebration. I did not see it at TW or WF.

    tcanaday Oct 23, 2012 California

    There was about 6 of them on the shelf too.

    Ah, I had about 3 Celebration Ales and split a BART with my boy Marc last night during poker. Celebration Ale is too good right now.

    They had narwhal, too. And some plinys. But that was a couple days ago, not sure about now.

    Just picked up two 6-packs from the Bevmo in Natomas - the shelf was empty but there were a few cases left on an end cap display.

    Which one(beer)? I was going to go to Bevmo or maybe TW.I used to be a big fan of Christmas Ales but haven't for awhile.All this talk has made me reconsider.And I can't seem to find a good IPA lately.Nothing is grabbing my palate.

    My bad - was Celebration. I wasn't looking for Narwhal.

    In Petaluma right now. Going to lagunitas in a bit. Saw Brian at gym, last night he was saying that too. Real interested in trying wet dog after the 3 solid reviews

    Was at the brewery last week and the wet dog is great. Especially with the warm weather we had, seems to be gone now!
     
  34. MisterClean

    MisterClean Jan 11, 2008 California

    Had the wet dog and the guezue saison beer. Both were good, and so was this year's capuccino stout.

    Bear Republic also had an amazing guezue too. No growlers. :(

    Cask Simtra at The Shack tomorrow, along with Jeremy and other Knee Deep beers.

    Thanks for mentioning this. I would've had no idea this was going on, and I love me some cask beer. Do they list their events online somewhere?

    I think I saw this on a Knee Deep FB post.
     
  38. RobertV916

    RobertV916 Jun 10, 2012 California

    Yeah, I got the heads up from the Knee Deep FB page, got there just before they tapped the cask. Simtra on cask was amazing and super intense. It lasted less than one hour even w/ 1 glass per person limit.

    danscott Jul 15, 2006 California

    The best place to find out about local beer events is to follow the Sacramento Beer Week page on Facebook. I am usually posting two things a day.

    The Simtra cask was amazing, but the Midnight Hoppyness did me in.
