    Any sightings in the metro yet for SN Summerfest? Called Applejack and they advised they have not been able to order yet.

    Sierra Nevada's website beerfinder is usually pretty good. It's only showing Summerfest quite a bit north of the Denver Metro area (different distributor/warehouse). I'd imagine that means next week for Denver.

    Their distributor here has been known to hold back the new SN seasonal if there's a ton of the previous out in the market. If you're seeing a lot of the 40th Anniversary Ale in the market, that could be a bad sign.

    LOL, I just saw a pile of the anniversary yesterday. Guess we're in for a wait :stuck_out_tongue:
    With Polestar gone, SN Summerfest might best the best packaged pils that isn't from Bierstadt. At least that we can easily buy in Denver right now. Fingers crossed, hopefully we'll see some fresh Tannenzaepfle and Schoenramer again.

    I mean Pivo is around on shelves if you're looking for a pils fix.. shoot I'd highly recommend trying (or revisiting) Prima, Trumer (so underrated), Brooklyn pils, or grabbing some Lagunitas Pils or Urquell (love the cans) if you're looking for something a little more Czech.

    When it comes to Pivo, I would check the dates. At least at my local shop, all of its dated January. While not terrible for a pils, I am sure there are fresher options out there.
