    Anyone seen Modist Dream Yard still around?

    Had it at the taproom, wasn't that impressed. Wasn't bad by any means. I would like to buy some of the cans and try it out again.

    6 pks of Bells Mars @ TW Burnsville for an outrageous $16.99. "Outrageous" because you can get just a bit to the west on Hwy 42 @ HyVee for $10.99.

    <whine>I only go to TW for stuff I absolutely can't get elsewhere within a reasonable driving distance because you never know if you are getting a deal, paying market price, or getting ripped off!</whine>

    Also - to piggyback off this, anyone know of any locales in the NW 'burbs that have DDH Sue and King Sue? I got a neighbor enjoys juicy IPA's that I would love to blow his mind...

    Zipp's still has KBS and Rum King sitting out. Believe the Rum king was 18.99/4pk. They also have plenty of Pe Kan @ 6.99

    I don't think King Sue has ever even shown up in stores around the Twin Cities and if it did it sure wasn't anything recently you'd want to be seeking out right now.

    It was in stores around December in the cities, but not much. After seeing these posts I text a few buddies to see if I missed any recent drops. To my knowledge it hasn't been bottled since around the holidays. I hope I'm wrong, though and we see it soon!

    I picked up a Mosaic Dry Hop Sue at Top 10 Andover last week but haven't seen DDH or King lately.

    To those looking for DDH Sue, it's not in the burbs, but Casanova in Hudson had several cases of both DDH and SuMo as well as Thresher, Lightspeed and even some Zeelander (I'm assuming an older bottling) as of yesterday at 10:30 AM. Haven't seen any around closer to the TC though.

    Yeah I picked up a mosaic a few weeks ago, but no luck on the DDH... Saw a REALLY old KS in Excelsior at a small shop a few weeks ago, but passed due to the age

    The Zeelander IS from the December batch and DO AVOID! I was totally unaware and picked up a couple bottles this weekend. I love Zeelander and think Toppling Goliath hops hold up more than any other, but, the Zeelander is at drain pour status right now. Going to address this at the store when I visit there in a couple days.

    For those like myself conducting a long-running love affair with Central Waters Bourbon Barrel Barleywine, it should be everywhere by this week. It's all over Chanhassen & France 44 is supposed to get their shipment today. A few places received it last week.

    And if you're desperate, there are a handful of KBS bombers at Liquor Boy for the low, Surdykesque price of $29.99. That place.

    Hey, that's only double the price of the 12oz bottles that were sitting right below it!

    As of Friday, they also had Cherry Dust, Pe-kan, Paradise, and Mars.

    Casanova in Hudson has it. You'd think it would be around here too, but I haven't seen much if anything about it in the metro.

    Talking with the guys at Ale Jail, it apparently is still sitting at the distributor. Probably has been for a couple weeks now.

    From the sounds of it, Blissful and Hooey are going to be brewed regularly and looks like it will be regularly on shelves. I can say that I am not mad about that.

    Blissful has nothing on Hooey or Straight Hash Homie. Barrel God is on par with BCBS and I LOVE Bourbon County. Always been nice that Lupulin is 4 miles from my house but we've been visiting them more and more lately as they get better and better.

    Shorewood Liquor is stocked with that Blissful juice! Still the best packaged 2XIPA in MN by a large margin.

    This latest batch of Blussful Ignorance looks hazier than past batches. Not that I care much, but I know some people NEED the haze.

    Overall, sofa king good!
