    Yeah...found some on the shelves earlier today. Really, really enjoying this. Like some adult chocolate milk with a touch of some vanilla.

    Now onto some Odell Red.

    It took a lot to pry myself away from Lugene, but I can always return to it after I finish this glass.

    In the QC- picked up some bombers at Hy-Vee Moline- 7th street. They had this, IPA, Nut Brown, Grand Cru, and Barley wine. Only had this and the IPA and they are awesome. Glad to see new brewery distributed here!

    I don't see why you wouldn't. If you get Mountain Standard and Double Pilsner, you should get this.

    We do but the cooler door that has the 4 packs have very limited space in the big 3 stores in Casper. Looking at what's there, I could easily remove a couple to make room but will the retailers? I hope so.
