    More than a year later, our 30th Anniversary Bigfoot emerges from these whiskey barrels and is as complex as ever. The limited 750mL bottles will hit select stores early 2013. We hope you find one!

    I really hope to see this one come to CO, but have been a little disappointed lately with distribution to our state. We have a huge market for Sierra Nevada beers, and it seems that we aren't even getting much Narwhal, despite other states receiving bottles. I don't get it. Hopefully we get the barrel aged bigfoot.

    There won't be any barrel-aged Narwhal in large distribution. We made 15Bbls as a pilot batch and put that into bourbon barrels. It will be draught only, but probably limited to high-end festivals and such. Barrel-aged Dubbel and Quad are Chico-only releases in the bottle, and limited draught has made it outside of Chico and is out there now...Again VERY limited.

    BA Bigfoot will be packaged in the next two weeks and we need to give it a month to bottle-condition (12.2 ABV!) so we're looking for a late January release. Again, this is also super limited 100Bbls...some states are only getting a handful of cases so this one is definitely going to go really fast.

    Don't let it get you down. If it comes out in late January, we'll be busy drinking Hopslam anyway. :)

    If its been anything like the 2012 distribution model, they will release it to the states furthest away first.

    Some might trickle into California, Nevada months later.

    Most states will be getting some (depending on ABV caps...sorry Ohio) but most states will not be getting much.

    For some reason we pay an extra $5 on Sierra Nevada 750's in CO so I guess it will be $20 here. :(
