    Sorry, NH . . .

    From Beer Pulse::
    Our newly-minted Escondido informant has provided us with some information on the next Stone Enjoy By IPA release.
    First, the next edition that is coming is Stone Enjoy By 04.01.13. Since this beer carries a brewery-sanctioned shelf life of 35 days before retailers have to pull it, we predict this will ship on Friday, February 22, and be available around the following Tuesday.
    What markets? These may or may not be finalized but the full list of 17 (or 18 if you consider Michigan to be two) is below. Just bear in mind that, due to the logistics involved, anything can happen last minute so don’t write these in stone (not bad?) until the official brewery announcement.
    Connecticut
    Delaware
    Georgia
    Indiana
    Kentucky
    Maine
    Maryland
    Massachusetts
    Michigan (Detroit & Ann Arbor)
    New York (NYC & burbs)
    Northern California (Bay Area)
    Ohio
    Rhode Island
    Southern California

    Did someone from NH take a dump in their grain mill or something?

    Come on Mitch - you have NH roots! :)

    Actually, it could totally be something with the state - their label approval process has been known to be sluggish and/or stupid at times.

    " Since this beer carries a brewery-sanctioned shelf life of 35 days before retailers have to pull it"
    I find this line extremely hilarious.

    I get most of my beer in Maine anyway, so the NH snub doesn't bother me one bit. Given the "freshness" stigma associated with this beer, it's probably a good idea to keep it away from NH distro channels.

    I know beers that have sat in a warehouse in Concord for over a month before the label us ultimately denied. I don't blame them for not coming to NH. The beer will need to be pulled before it will even hit the shelves.

    The sad part is the Liquor Commission probably isn't even aware they aren't getting beers because of their own laziness and red tape.

    Probably why I sometimes see Stone bombers at rock bottom prices at NH Market Basket.
