    We get SN at weird times in AZ. As I recall Life and Limb 2 was here about two months after CA release. Of course was that distributed through DogFish's network...? I don't know
    I'll bet it is at AZ Strongbeer Fest though (kegs obviously)

    LA is dry from what I can determine calling/shopping that past week. A couple places Orange County still have 1 or 2 bottles left as of yesterday.

    Slowly making its way to the NE. Cannot wait! Have heard good things. Stores are getting sick of me calling.

    Any word on Chicago? Every store I've asked says next week. But that's what they said last week.

    It'll be popping up this week, but allocations will be spotty.

    Hit Louisville, KY. Found it at the beer store during the black note release party. Seems like they had a few more around when I left.

    Check out what I picked up on the way home from work...


    Only sold in a package. Mine came with two regulars and a bucket for $26.99. Had a few other variations of this with different pricing. Apparently the shop only got six bottles in and did this to stop someone greedy from buying them all... And to move some product, I'm sure. Regardless, I like it :)

    That's a deal. $20 for the beer and $7 for the can/tin/whatever. Wish my shop did that with certain products they wanna move

    Got some in a trade from an extremely generous trader (opened one of four). Just opened one tonight with two friends in Ann Arbor and it tastes almost exactly as I imagined: slightly hoppy, lots of barrel, and tons of awesome. It is quite different from any other BA barleywine I've ever had, but then again regular Bigfoot is different from any barleywine I've ever had.

    I asked my Kohler guy (north nj) and he looked at me like i had 3 heads. I used to deal with peerless as well, i emailed him and he said he is not expecting it but will let me know. Peerless seems to get most of the special releases so im hoping. Kohler didnt even get narwhal i was told

    I talked to Peerless. They are the ones that told me that NJ would not be getting any.

    Snagged 2 last night at Bierkraft in Park Slope, Brooklyn for $23 each (hefty price but it beats going around the city on my lunch break looking for this, which I've been doing the past few days).

    Looks like they had about 6 left as of 10pm last night.
