    I was at Highland Package a few days ago and noticed two new cans. White Thai and India Pale Ale from Westbrook. So,, Alabama is now getting Westbrook. Just spreading the word. Hopefully we'll get more of their brews in the future.

    Alabama is attracting some nice beer. The Westbrooks I had recently were all excellent. And you are getting Oskar Blues. Why aren't the Kentucky distributors getting in on all of this?

    I was hoping this was a sign of things to come..the first movement of new brewerys coming in with big bottles..

    I have been hearing Oskar Blues was coming for awhile..Free The Hops are definitely moving Alabama in the right direction ..

    I'm an SC native and travel back there several times a year to visit family. Every time I have gone back in the last year or so, Westbrook has been #1 on my radar, despite having access to better known breweries/brands. Everything that I've had from them has been great. Their barrel-treatment projects are top notch and they are starting to push the envelope in ways that few east coast breweries do right now. Unfortunately, their anniversary beer has come and gone, but it was fantastic. Check them out, you certainly won't be disappointed. And this is one more reason for me to visit Alabama every chance I get.

    - Jealous in Mississippi :(

    i have the three wine barrel trippels from Westbrook and they are awesome. I had the Malbec and it was REALLY good.
