    I have one of those in my stash. Even further back. Maybe I can sell it back to them? :grin:

    Apparently there are only a few states they are shipping to: "CA, NC, ND, NE, NH, VA, & VT"

    @SierraTerence, why just these 7 states?

    Cheers!

    Yeah, I have had the link for a month or so. Been waiting to drink through my beer fridge before ordering a six of the BA Bigfoot and a pack of Life and Limb (very underrated beer!).

    @JackHorzempa if they starting shipping to PA, this might be our chance to get fresh SN beer.

    You people out in Cali are living the life! Sierra Nevada, Russian River, etc. shipped directly to your door!

    I am seriously considering moving to Cali! :grinning:

    Can you afford to buy a house there? And can you afford to pay the taxes?:confused:

    I suppose if you have the money California is the place you ought to be?

    Cheers!

    Please, don't you dare turn this into another "why is SN beer so expensive in PA" thread!

    But if they shipped to PA the price would be twice as much, right?

    Very odd that these are the few states they choose to ship to.

    Enjoy

    The BA Torpedo sounds really interesting and would be fun to try. It is very cool they offer that Bigfoot vertical as well. I really wish these shipping regulations and red tape could be cut and all breweries could ship to all states. It sucks seeing something you want to order but you live in the wrong state.

    It is really cool they started online sales however, hopefully the distribution footprint will expand in the future.

    I won’t lol. At least prices would be the same though.

    Yes, we are very fortunate in many ways. Sure, we have are challenges like everywhere, but on the whole, I would not live anywhere else.

    Would this be a poor time to mention that my wife is from Hawaii and that I'm forced to visit family and possibly retire there?

    Cheers!

    Sorry for the semi-vacation delay...

    Well, not all states allow shipping of beer across state lines. The current "legal" list shows 12 states where we can ship beer. These were the easy ones that gave us same day approval to ship. We are still waiting on a few more states for approval. We currently thinking that AK and Hi will not be options due to shipping cost.

    That said, most of the breweries (Brewers Association) are wondering how companies like Tavour are getting around the legal guidelines.

    Thought is, this pandemic might open up some of those restrictions on malt beverages shipping across state lines.

    One thing is clear, the wine lobbyest did a way better job back in the day than the beer lobbyist.
