    There was word Sixpoint was going to start distributing to Ohio, and it's now official because I was just at Warehouse Beverage and they had five of their beers. I'm excited to see how their brews are.. just spreading the word.. Cheers!

    Thanks for the heads up! Is it going to be distributed to all of Ohio, or just the north?

    Awesome, I've only tried the tiger and thought it was pretty good. Looking forward to resin and sweet action for sure!

    Saw it at Rozi's today as well. Haven't had any Sixpoint before, so I'll probably grab a "mix-a-six" since they were only $2.60 or $2.80 each or something.

    Some have showed up in Columbus too. Had the Bengali yesterday and a growler of their DiCicco collaboration a few weeks ago. Thought they were solid. I've heard the Righteous is very good, so looking forward to picking it up. Hooray for cans too!!

    It just hit Indiana too. I picked up a couple of the Secret Stache. Nice.

    They just need to nudge a bit farther west. I'd keep The Crisp in my fridge at all times.

    Im not hating it. There was a tasting at the Keg in Clarksville. Im not a pilsner fan, but Crisp isnt horrible.

    I actually wasn't a big pilsner guy either after trying Prima Pils and not exactly being wowed, but damn if this brew didn't strike a chord with me. Sweet Action is another one I could drink all day.

    Where has it been seen in Columbus? I was at The Andersons yesterday and didn't notice it if it was there. I'm looking forward to trying Bengali Tiger and Resin.

    I grabbed some Resin/Tiger/Crisp/Sweet Action at Rozi's around 3:30. Seem like they only had a few lose cans of Resin left, did not see any 4 packs of it for sale.

    Anyone in Columbus seen Resin on the shelves?

    I picked up some Resin at The Andersons on Sawmill in Columbus this evening. He hadn't put it on the shelf yet but grabbed it from the back for me.

    Drinking Bengali Tiger with Resin waiting in the fridge right now. This is solid stuff. All of the notable Lakewood bottle shops are carrying the full spread.

    I had the Spice of Life Simcoe and Spice of Life Nugget last night at Tremont Tap House. The Simcoe was really nice, nugget less so.

    The Spice Simcoe we had at Lizardville was so bad they pulled the keg off. Butter bomb!! Overall, Sixpoint gets a solid C from me. The definition of mediocrity.

    Must have been a bad keg then, because what I had was pretty good.
