    From the press release, Lexington first. Sorry, Louisville. We get something before you for once.

    It's because ky eagle is not allowed to distribute beer in markets where AB has its own distribution rights. The cities I am aware of where this is the case are Louisville and Etown.

    Poor choice for sweet water. Lexington is a good beer market but ky eagle has very little to offer outside Lexington. I'm guessing beer house and river city are bidding for Louisville rights.

    I just toured the brewery this weekend and came back to find out that we (full disclosure I work for Liquor Mart) already had the product from KY Eagle. So I know you can buy it in Richmond and I'm sure Lexington right now.

    I thought Lexington always had Sweetwater, hence all those toothless grins?

    Try the veal!

    I'm just curious if anyone else noticed that in the preview of Season 4 of The Walking Dead, they come across a pallett or two of Sweetwater IPA.

    The show is filmed in GA so SweetWater has made an appearance more than once. If I was fighting zombies, I'd be just fine if that was the only beer available.

    Red Brick has made several appearances as well. I went on a trip to Atlanta this past weekend and went on a SweetWater tour and paid Woodbury (aka Main Street in Senoia, GA) a visit.

    If you meet their governor, I hear he's not to be trusted...
