    Where did you buy the bottles last time? I couldn't find them anywhere in the East Bay, or I just looked in all the wrong places.

    Just had Best By 2-15-13 and it was pretty good, but not as great as the hype in my opinion. Of course it's past it's best by date which could be a bit of a factor.

    Still no DE locations listed on the map. I am hoping this will make it easier to get at my local shops that have confirmed they will get it. Also- to Philadelphia people, you already had your chance, now let us enjoy ours. Stay put.

    I agree, Long Island peeps, if you see this beer, stay as far away as possible :). Leave it on the shelves.

    Hoping my goto store gets it in. The owner said that he is going to try to get a case. If I can get more than one bottle I will gladly trade it.

    Quick question... is the name of the beer "Enjoy By" and the date is just every new batch? I find it hard to believe that they would pay for separate label approval for each run.

    Nope, it has zero trade value, just buy a bottle or two and leave some for others to enjoy (by).

    Pretty sure the Dec version was around $6 in Bloomington. Can't remember since I had a lot of it on tap and never bought any bottles.

    I picked up a couple bottles at the brewery this weekend. FYI it's a two bottle limit. IMO the beer isn't as great as the 12-12-12 or the Feb release, but it is still a solid double IPA.

    Um, you don't have any good beer in VT? Could have sworn Heady Topper and Hill Farmstead were pretty good...

    It's a good beer, not worth all the hype, of course I'm still bitter that after setting the record TX got snubbed on the last batch...

    Every new date is printed right on the bottle in giant letters.

    Considering the owner of stone, I'm sure that bottle is coming. Maybe it will be consume on 4.20.2013.

    I know your post is in jest, but still . . . define upstate. Is any of this actually getting out of the NYC-metro / lower Hudson area? 'Cause there's a lot more to "upstate" than Poughkeepsie.

    Edit: I see you're from the Albany area. Are you expecting any Enjoy By in your neck of the woods?

    Only partly in jest, we received 12/12/12 on 2/2/13, crushing my hopes and dreams of having an end of the world type tasting of a mediocre and largely passed its prime vertical.

    Baha. Well, if this makes it to upstate NY (like CNY), that'd be gnarly. But I have my extraordinary doubts.
