    Glad I don't live in West Michigan. Picked one up in the southern end of the state for $24.99.

    I was able to buy one in Northern Kentucky for $23.99, only opened the 20th anniversary so far, was hoping for a bit more but a decent beer and at $6/bomber, I was pleased.

    Could you please give us some details on where you saw this? We believe we may have addressed these concerns but want to make sure no stone (no pun intended) is left unturned.

    And for anyone else concerned about pricing, please let us know about it if/where you see this pack being sold for $30 or above. As always, we appreciate you keeping an eye out for us!

    Has anyone seen this pack in Ohio? Alternatively, are these being sold as singles outside of Citracado?

    Had a 1/2 growler of each one. The 15th is no joke, probably one of the best beers I have ever had.

    No, unless you find each one on tap they are only in the 4 packs.

    Still haven't seen it in NJ and unfortunately the dude who posted he got it at his store didn't answer my reply where. Anyone else see this?

    Finally saw these locally, $23-24 and only 1 month left until the Enjoy By date, wish they would have gotten here sooner, had to pass.

    Costco in Pentagon City had them for 19.99. I guess I'm more of an old school Stone fan (despite being <30). I ranked them straight in order of oldest to newest (recipe wise of course). The Citracado was by far the most "modern stone" tasting, but not my favorite of 4.

    I don't know if that's what they were going for, but I dug the whole concept of getting to taste a timeline of Stone IPAs. Very fun. Might buy another 1 or 2 if I'm in the area.

    Got this a few weeks ago for $25, then saw it at another store for $24. Was going to get Citracado anyways, but this pack is such a great deal. Really neat getting to try beers that I would have never been able to have any other way. Really enjoying all of the Encore series thus far.

    I'm not sure if this is the place to ask this, but are they doing to Box of Bastards again this year?

    The only areas of Florida that got these were Orlando Area and South Florida...have no idea why it was so limited in Distro..fortunately a good trading partner picked me up a couple 4 Packs in Chicago for 23 a 4 Pack and sent them to me...ridiculously good price at less than 6 a bottle(thank you Stone)...have acquired all The Encore Series Anniversary Beers over the last year and when The Final One hits the shelves this week(14th Anniversary) we are doing a Vertical next weekend of all of them starting with Year 5..hoping in the future they re-release all The Vertical Epics again

    20th Anniversary (Citracado) was the weakest beer in this pack by far.

    If I wind up agreeing with this, then I just made an excellent purchase, because I very much liked Citracado a month or two when it first came out.

    Also just got one and noticed they're 2 months old already. How are they tasting now?

    They seemed fine when I had them. My area didn't get them as soon as some other people did.

    Not trying to stir up the pot too much...but, if Stone's sales are slow, wouldn't you try to get out of warehouse stores that keep your IPAs (some of the best in the f*cking world) on the warm shelf...

    Sipping on the 10 right now. Tastes more like an American barleywine than a DIPA. It's really good, reminds me of dry hopped OG.

    Did or is Maryland going to see these? Did VA or PA get it? Will travel or trade for these, even with the bit of age on them. Our local rep hasn't been very helpful concerning this.

    THANK YOU! This post made it so I was able to get some on Wednesday. Thank you very much! I'd also never been to that Total Wine. It has an interesting layout. I got a lot of great beer. Bought quite a bit more than just the Stone Anniversary IPA Collection. You gotta love VA's distribution.

    I always check out beer selection at my local Costco. To my surprise these were on sale for 7.29 . I bought 8 packs. Only thing i can see they are unloading them is because the best by date on them of mid November. I thought regular price of 19.99 was a good deal. I am in CA

    So far 20th is my favorite 5th was good , 10th was not good at all. Boozy and sweet and low carbonation. Black IPA is for this weekend. I still have another pack to get through soon. I love these packs they do. The bastardized pack was great too. At $5 and change a bottle im in.

    Enjoy
