    Have they said if Vlad will see distribution in the Seattle area? Curious what the bottle shops would charge...

    I think they said barrel house/online only, but I'm sure they'll change their minds after seeing the bottles sit around for a while.

    I was at the Barrel House this week. They said it will be brewery/online only until they run out in March. It takes 2 years to go to bottles so they are in no hurry. Because they don't brew every year it will be 2 years before we see it again.

    At this point I don't believe anyone until the beer has been delivered and I've cut them a check. :wink:

    I heard from a distributor that Seattle should get some. Maybe they were wrong?

    Considering Cascade used to say Vlad was too expensive to bottle, everything they tell you should be taken with a grain of salt.

    This is pretty normal imo. Retailers get pissed when the brewery undercuts them.

    So has anybody who ordered online received their bottles yet? I got an order confirmation after I bought on the day Vlads went on sale, which also said I would receive an e-mail when my bottles were shipped. As of yet, no follow-up regarding any bottles in the mail, and my phone messages to the brewery have gone unreturned.

    I'd imagine they're not shipping to the East Coast or Midwest yet due to cold weather, but I'm in Los Angeles, so just wondering if everybody else out west is still waiting.

    So I paid $30 at the barrel house and IMO, there is nothing about it to justify the price. Not that i didn't enjoy it, I just enjoyed apricot and kriek more, for $10 less... also, if you can still find it, blueberry as well.

    I received a bottle from the gf for Valentines day. I overpaid for flowers, now we're even.

    Per Facebook:
    Cascade Brewing
    After a somewhat disastrous end to our relationship w/an unnamed shipping company, we have, as of last Monday, become partners with another. We are confident that our shipping will be much smoother and quicker. We apologize for any inconvienence or long wait for product and hope you order from us again. We have just shipped a large amount of packages to the Northeast, the South and the West Coast. If you live in the Great Lakes area or the Midwest, we are holding your package until it warms up a bit. Beer freezes and it's very sad. We are keeping our eyes on the Weather Channel and will ship as soon as it looks better. Cheers!

    Think there's likely no rush on this one. Unless you want it. Then, by all means.
