    The Beer'd production facility in Groton(?) just opened up, so keep an eye out for LOTS more Beer'd, including some of their NE-IPAs. This week we're looking at One Thing Led To Another and Next Episode #13.

    Destihl drops in CT this week, not sure if anyone cares. They've got lots of interesting canned sours though at decent prices.

    TG Sosus hit CT this week in 22s, but I'm sure it'll sell like shit since it's an out-of-state brewery in a bomber.

    Kent Falls: This week- Air Guitar, Buddy Sprinkles. Next week: Candy Cap, Doubly Awkward Hug, The Hollow

    Wish Beer’d Brewed more than their high ABV IPA’s. Stouts, porters, pale ales, lower ABV IPA.

    The just massively increased their capacity with a new facility. Probably a safe bet more volume will be out and about.

    Both Pinot Noir and Pinot Gris a la Ancienne hit in September. There were two 6-packs of each alloted to Connecticut. I was lucky enough to share a bottle.

    Just called my distributor this morning, he said that it was listed in their inventory but it was showing zero in stock, he said that he didnt see anything come in yet, but once it does ill be snagging it immediately. The Sosus that we got in was absolutely fantastic I am said that TG does not have a following here in CT yet.

    Not sure about a following but I often pick up Pseudo Sue or Pompeii when I see them fresh, a nice, reasonable priced IPA option.

    Tough to get a following when I haven't seen anything since psuedosue since their initial release locally. I would buy FSM again if I came across it.

    No King Sue this go-round, but Fire, Skulls and Money should be shipping out next week. For some weird reason, King Sue missed the shipment.

    Also, War Pigs (3F & Mikkeller) will be hitting distro soon, and Modern Times will be coming to CT at some point next year. But shhh. :wink:

    Do we know when CBS is hitting CT? And is there any chance that it’s MSRP is less than $30?

    Another gouge. Can't make it in 4 packs like every other "Barrel Release"? Of course not. Need your 2x+ hard mark up? Hard Pass!

    What is everyone drinking?

    I keeping finding myself going back to the same old stuff (Counterweight IPA, Stubborn Beauty, Ruffle Feathered, NoFilter, etc.)

    What's some good IPA out there on the shelves?

    Still have a bottle of CBS sitting in my fritz from last year. I guess I need to drink this and skip this year's release.

    I’ve been having luck with Relic and Kent Falls at my local establishment in Central CT. The only IPA from those two I haven’t liked yet is Leaf Storm by Relic.

    Same here. Considering that KBS was a shelfie this year, and CBS isn’t coming off of a 5 year hiatus, I expect it to be available months after it lands on shelves.

    Modern Times ships out this week. There's not much going around, so scoop it if you see it.

    Also, speaking of small drops, the Two Roads x Aslin collab ships out this week.
