    Mine was Great Divide Titan IPA. Loved it. I live in CT and more than a few years ago they stopped selling it. I hope it returns. Great Divide makes some great beer. Also if anyone knows how to get some let me know.

    Though Russian River distributes to SoCal, they no longer distribute Blind Pig (or at least not where I live). I actually prefer Blind Pig over Pliny to tell you the truth.

    While it was a short love affair, @Sixpoint pulled out of west Michigan. Sad to see those cans go. Hoping to see them again soon...

    If you're close to Deciccos in Brewster NY, they carry a lot of Great Divided beers. :slight_smile:

    Racer 5!! Bear Republic pulled out of NY (or at least upstate) and it broke my heart. That was the beer that got me into craft. One of these days I've got to take the 3 hour drive to Penn and grab myself a case.

    Kinda the inverse but I used to live 10 minutes from NEBCo. Went from Gandhi Bot (favorite beer) every batch to not a sip in 2 years.

    Bear Republic Racer 5. Also had a brief stint with Jester King being distributed here and wanted to try more stuff. No dice.

    As far as I can determine, 80 Acre Hoppy Wheat isn't being distributed to this area any more.

    Cantillon. They used to sit on shelves and I almost never got them because I wasn't into sours at the time. :slight_frown:

    Right around the time I discovered Allagash, they pulled out. I didn't get the chance to truly fall in love with any of their beers, though I really dug the one bottle of Allagash 4 I was able to have.

    When I was younger I fell in love with Watney's Cream Stout. I suspect I would not enjoy it as much now that I have so many great beers available to me. But there was a day.....

    We had a wonderful thing going when New England Brewing was showing up here in the Finger Lakes. I could get 668 all the time and Sea Hag became my go-to beer. Gandhi Bot was easier to get than it was for folks in New Haven, if you could believe that. Then they started selling to NYC and we haven't seen it since.

    When Shelton Brothers pulled out of MN, we lost Cantillon, Struise, Fantome, Anchorage, Jolly Pumpkin, and many more. Too many great beers lost.

    Pretty sure Great Lakes sent beer to Indiana before I could legally drink. Regardless its a travesty that we get zero beer from them.

    Allagash in Cincy and Ky. area. Miss their fantastic Belgian inspirations. Medieval was excellent as well and long gone from the area. Weeping Radish Fest.....sigh.....another good one gone. And last but not least Snow Goose was a decent enough company as well, although I believe it was a contract brew of Flying Dog. Really liked their porter and stouts
