Nope, this one.
Could be...just grabbed it off the net. I know there are Market Basket stores in southeast Tx.
Yep, this year’s is good. Maybe even better than past years. Will be drinking this as long as it’s available at the local store.
That gives me the same returns. Stay tuned for a little Friday reconnaissance!
Bought bottles there last year and bottles are on the site as a November availability. When in November I don’t know. $31.99 a case, same as last year.
I meant on the SN site bottles aren’t shown.
Oh, thought you meant the TW. SN said bottles would be limited to club type stores and large chains I think was the distro on bottles.
If bottles don’t show up by Saturday I’m getting cans.
Yeah, I'm thinking cases of bottles at a local Costco are going to be the only option for me locally on this format. I'm more than pleased with the cans so I have no need to wait it out. If I see them at the right time I may pick a case of bottles up. I know here the club type stores don't usually get Celebration on the first wave or so of distribution. Will have to hit a local club type store soon to check it out but I try to avoid all the Christmas stuff this early. Although they might be on to spring seasonal stuff by now so maybe I missed it
My top 5 closest results using the alternative SN beer finder include a pizza place, an Italian restaurant and a bar. I haven't visited any of these places but I'm confident they are in possession of kegs. Whether it's already tapped is another story.
If nobody has done it by then, I'll walk down a try to find a draft pint Thursday afternoon.
I was able to order a log from one of my local stores and it showed up on their next delivery day. Wasn't a problem at all. I know now 2 local restaurants have Celebration flowing on tap, some others wait till December.
I’m going to be in Saratoga this afternoon, and there are a few bars on the beer finder showing Celebration. I hope to be posting a nice draft Celebration later today
In town now, on draft, at Riverside Market Café. Packages, probably 6-pks, are to arrive tomorrow, or so I was just informed. We've got particularly nasty weather right now, so it'll be a few days before I can make it down there.
The first place I stopped at Bailey's, just tapped the keg. More upfront grapefruit than the cans
Yeah, that's not a feature that VIP offers... Not sure what to say, other than sorry. If you want me to look further, I can start asking our sales team for available accounts in your area. I don't mind doing that... I will add that the pub in Chico has it on tap.
Thanks, but no need -- I've found a spot that should have it and I'll report back.
If they don't, there's another spot that's on the search that's even more likely to have it.
Booking a flight now!
A week ago, in the south suburbs of Cleveland, I picked up a couple of sixers dated 10/5 from Chico for $10.99 each. See my previous posts. Was a county south today and found a 12 for $18.99 from Mills River dated 10/7. It’ll be interesting to compare.
Please do report back your findings between Chico vs. Mills River.
Maybe a side-by-side taste testing?
Finally showed up in Hawaii. $8.99 6 pack cans from Target. 10/6 dated so not too bad for the long sail across the Pacific. Sierra should buy all of you a beer for all this great publicity. Reading all of these posts made me crave it so I kept checking their site until it arrived. Cheers everyone!
Sounds like a good pre-game prep. for the Buckeyes Saturday.
There’s only one thing I’d change about this beer. Change the red can to a blue can . . .
And they could shoot a good commercial, maybe like the one below.
P.S. Are you a good singer?
They already did us a solid by bringing back Oktoberfest and Summerfest next year.
I have 12 Celebrations (well, 11) and six Narragansett Lagers in my fridge. Macros for the win!
2 of my favorite beers
Just finished a sixer of 10/6 and picked up a 12 pack of 10/3 canned for 17.99. Going to enjoy it as long as it sticks around on shelves this season
I'll be having it soon enough. Should I have them (can/bottle and draft) concurrently (side by side) or consecutively?
I'll check when I get down there before I decide, y'all.
Side-by-side is the 'best' way.
So, Sierra Nevada is a macro now?
@SierraTerence -- how do you feel about that? Get a raise?
Used this link, FINALLY arrived in Broward County! Snagged 3- 12 packs.
It did not arrive at the Riverside Market, although they did have it on draft. (Had 3).
Checked TW and they don't have it there either.
I used your link and now I know. Strange that Odd Breed would have it, But I see that Whole Foods has it also.
TW in Pembroke Pines just got it in.
3 pints of a 6.8% IPA. Respect.
Just paid $27.79 after tax/deposit for two 6 packs of cans (dated 9/30) to replenish my supply - a mark-up of $6.30 over what I paid a couple weeks at a different slightly less sketchy local bodega (heh). Not sure why the bigger grocery stores in my area aren't getting this in - going to be more price conscious next time in any case!
Plus a Rosetta as desert.
Not for nothing, then I drove home.
Yes I did! Y'all wouldn't expect me to walk in that condition? (jk)
I see now that TW in Boca has 12-pk cans listed on their web site inventory.
Celebration on draft! @steveh
I'll check back in about 12 hours.
Yeah, well -- best laid plans, and all.
Third party cancellation keeps me at home tonight. Just means a bottle of wine and chocolates with the wife and a British TV show on DVD.
Maybe next week.
On my 3rd tonight and might even have a 4th. It truly is the perfect beer . . . even with the clove added this year.
Quick review of the draft. Truly an old school West Coast style bitterness to it. Scathing is the word I’d use. Not in a bad way either.
I'm trying to think of a back-handed compliment for a NE Hazy but I haven't actually had one in years.
