    Have some friends out there for the weekend and I'm looking to have them mule me some goodies. What is the best of the best that is available out there right now?

    Still have some Uncle Jacobs and BButte XXV. Backcountry 6ers are more than solid.

    Can't go wrong with Odell: St Lupulin, Myrcenary, IPA, Cutthroat Porter. Won't have any issues finding them.

    Second Backcountry's Pale Ale and the Crooked Stave.

    Skip the spring St. Bretta's and just go for the Paradox and Elevation on shelfs. Everything from CS (besides Spring) is great, but BA Elevation and Paradox's Trippel, Brown, Whiskey Stout, Skully No. 2 (and No. 3 from what I hear) are some of the best beers in CO. If you ask me, Avery, Great Divide and Paradox are the best breweries in CO, but you really can't wrong with any beer from CO's best breweries. Those breweries are (bottling/ canning-wise), in my view, the 3 I mentioned, Crooked Stave, O'Dell, Grimm, Elevation, Trinity, River North, Oskar Blues and Dry Dock.

    Ah-ha. Yeup, they're gone! Thanks for coming in. If they were still there by next week I would have bought 'em up, so you saved me money! :confused:

    Now you're tempting me to break my "unless I'm going to DIA I don't go east of Colorado Blvd" rule

    This round isn't coming to Colorado, unfortunately. As far as the Avery demons go, The Beast just came out a month ago so it should still be around at some places.

    You work at a beer shop? Where is it located, I can send you some business. You have Crooked Stave stuff?

    That would be great! We're tucked in behind Pier 1, next to King Soopers at Colorado and Yale, called Grapes and Grains.
    Slotted Spoon and Larkburger are in the same center. Good stuff.

    We do have CS. New Hop Savant just arrived last night, as did some Paradox (roasted pumpkin seeds...?)

    Turns out my brother is staying in Henderson. I can ask if he's willing to travel to the south side, but if not is there a place in that area to shop? Also how much is Uncle Jacobs going for, assuming he can find some?

    Not sure of any spots in that area, but as far as UJ pricing: I've seen it for anywhere from $12-14

    Is send him over to Total Beverage at 104th and Washington. It's probably one of the best options within a short drive to Henderson.
