    This may be a long-shot, but looking to see if anyone has leads on if this may still be floating on shelves (or cellared for trade) somewhere in Western Wisconsin. I just need the first one (blue label) at this time and have been hunting it for some time now. I am in Hudson and willing to drive an hour or so in any direction... If you have one and are willing to trade, I'd be happy to hook you up with something from my cellar (cw16 or HF Everett or etc.)

    Cheers,
    Jeff

    Call Coffee Grounds in Eau Claire. I bought one there last week and I think there was one left. They had the others, too, so make sure they're looking at the right bottle!

    Island Wines in Cumberland had a few left last time I was there. Granted that was a few weeks ago, but craft doesn't move all that fast up here in NW WI. Might be worth calling them if you really want it and are willing to drive an hour.

    Wow, I'd really like another Frambois. I believe they will be making these again in the future.

    Maybe, but it doesn't seem like they will in the near future.

    I don't know if they just made more or what, but I see the Frambois all over the place still.

    I am looking forward to Dawn if Auroa, there have been a few kegs and it is getting great reviews. Unfortunately, it is not the next one, but on deck so we won't see it until around March.

    Dawn of Aurora was poured at FoBAB and it was fantastic!

    This series is very good, but a touch pricey in SE Wisconsin. Price drops $3-4 on the West side of the state. I think the fancy bottling/labeling has something to do with it.

    Yeah it's a bit pricey, but I'm trying to surprise a friend of mine. He's shared quite a few great beers with me, and I know he wants to try it. I appreciate the tips guys.

    Is this still out there near the Madison area that anyone knows of?

    Pretty sure it's long gone.
