    Gnarly. I've always got my ear to the ground around here, as best I can anyway, but there are always surprises.

    ha my bad, I copied the article from the website like ten minutes after it was posted, they might have added it afterwards. I nearly gave up when for whatever reason they put everything in alphabetical order then just added Michigan there at the end.

    Unfortunately the store I work at won't be getting any (we don't sell too much Stone), I was told the distributor only got ~20 cases of 22oz for SE Michigan.

    No lines or anything at the Pasadena store. It's amazing how much better things are when they aren't hyped up for no reason.

    Its should be available starting today (2/27/13). I haven't seen or heard a word yet in social media or on any websites. Anybody got some breaking news...? (Especially in NC). Thanks.

    Via Twitter a few minutes ago: "Today's the day! @StoneBrewingCo #EnjoyBy 04-01-13 lands in #CT #ME #RI #VT and makes its triumphant return to #MA Seek and you shall find!"
    I'm pumped for this. Enjoy By 12.21.12 was one of my favorite beers from last year. Hopefully I can get my hands on this latest release.

    Just got an email back from a distributor here in Ga, said the usual.... " We were allocated a very small number of cases, so they’re not going to be spread out very far. Your best bet would be in the city of Atlanta at either Hop City on Marietta St. or Green’s on Ponce de Leon." ...... Same old story, thought this one might be one I could get but it doesn't look good, I'm a bit south of the atl.

    Is the Bay Area only getting draft this time around? That's all the map is showing.

    A couple of the dots on Stones map say bottles. Pretty sad when it looks like I am going to have to trade for this from an east coast partner for a west coast beer. If you look at the map New York is getting absolutely slammed with Enjoy by. It looks like EVERY Liquor store is getting it. Enjoy East coast. Next time we need to start a voting campaign. I'm looking at you NorCal.

    Yeah it was suppose to be in NC today but in Charlotte the distribution company we have did not have it on the truck?? So I get to wait until next week... so slack. They also did this with the release of Hop slam to me its a little odd but oh well.

    I was just at my local store in MA. I was disappointed when my beer guy said "next week". He said he was told this today from the distributor. This doesn't seem right to me. Time to call another store...

    Landed in SE Michigan today. $5.99 a bottle, one bottle limit. I am pretty excited to open this this weekend.

    It'll be in town Friday I hear.

    I doubt I'll be able to get a bottle, so I'm not gonna freak out over it. I'm a bit south of the city now myself, so..

    Hop City would be a pass. They get most of everything in the state, but they sell it out so fast, and hold it for their buds, so the chance of getting any if you aren't there when they unpack it.. are next to nil in most cases.

    Just like the rest of the Stone lineup (the half that we get) if they did bring it here I'll bet we wouldn't see it in stores until 3/28/13

    Picked up 2 today. There was a 6 bottle limit. Kicking myself now.
    Store typically advertises new releases via FB and of course they did that after I showed up. Now sold out.
    Ah well. My 2 will taste great this weekend.
    They also had a couple cases o' Sucks. Thought that was gone. Glad its back. Fresh?

    I saw Sucks again in NYC today after not having seen it for a few weeks. This fits in with the rumors that it's going to be year-round. Didn't check the bottle dates, but guessing fresh - the place I saw it has pretty fast turnover and hasn't had it shelved for a few weeks.

    This store I go to typically puts the new fresh stuff right up in front of the regular shelves. This, Enjoy Boy, some new Short's, etc were all just hanging out there.
    I should have grabbed a case.

    I just saw Sucks in my packy for the first time in weeks. I checked the bottle and if I am reading it right it is less then 2 weeks old.

    I am having an Enjoy By right now. This is perhaps the best smelling DIPA I have ever had! This has been a good week for hoppy beers, so far. PtY, PtE, and Row 2 Hill 56 yesterday. Enjoy By right now. I have a Knuckle Sandwich in the fridge for tomorrow and another Enjoy By for this weekend. Prior to yesterday, a lot of Sucks. I will have to move onto another style for upcoming weeks (unless I am willing to be disappointed), as there is almost no way to match this week. I guess, it is a good problem to have. :slight_smile:

    p.s. This is the 4th batch of Enjoy By that I have had and IMO there is very little variation between the batches, in terms of bottles. I have however noticed a little difference between the bottled and draft versions. Bottles have always been better.
