    I don't know if I missed this or not, but any news on if/when this is going to be getting here? Interested in trying this one...

    It did get limited distro in Colorado for sure. Have not heard anything beyond that, though.

    You're right and I am not ;)

    The reviews mention purchases outside of the brewery.

    Are you saying you have some? That you would trade for a SA Triple Bock?

    haha, no I don't have any. Andrew shared some last weekend. That one sent me from buzzed to drunk!

    Well it seems intriguing enough, hopefully it makes it to this market. If no, I guess I'll have to make a trek out to CO... or just look for a trade.

    I think a trade would be a lot cheaper for you than traveling to CO to get a 12 oz bottle of beer.

    Sorry, didn't put my sarcasm emoticon on there. I'll see what shakes out for the distro, and see what would work via trades...

    I hear it has got outside CO. Heard it was in CA and I think it made it to MA but not sure other then posts I've read.

    I've drank several bottles and it's pretty tasty. I think it will really age well.

    It made it to Southern California a few weeks ago. Several stores got them in but only a case or so each. Selling for $12/bottle.

    I've heard from a beer manager who was in CO recently that it wasn't being shipped to MN... fyi. Thanks for all the help people, appreciate it!

    I picked one up at the Missouri Lukas about a week ago. Probably long gone by now. Your best bet may be RedX or Gomers North. They don't seem to sell things as fast as the stores down south.

    It was big and boozy, could benefit from some time.
