    This is the toughest release date for it. Not only am I flying back into Scandinavia two days after the release (probably missing the beer), but I also can't get any of my Swedish friends to go from Malmo to Copenhagen because it's the day after Midsummer. I wonder if Olbutikken did this to screw their neighbors to the north.

    I think in general Americans are just way more upthight about aquiring the newest whale on the block than most Europeans.

    Meant as a joke to the Swedes, particuarly those living in Malmo. They love their beer but for them to take time off a Holiday to acquire beer is sacrilegious.

    I still have my trading partners, just need to give up a little bit more.. Who knows though, if its still there on Saturday, I may take a detour to also visit friends last minute in Copenhagen.

    Hah... yeah. Several friends of mine are pissed about the date. You really have to appreciate what a big deal midsummer is for us swedes. It's on level with thanksgiving... :p

    I'd blow off Thanksgiving to get Blabaer. Then again, I don't really give a shit about holidays, Europeans seem to be into them.

    Well, the thing about living close to Copenhagen, or at least within reach... it's not that big of a deal to just wait until next year. It's not like Blåbær is that good either :/

    So I heard. Blabla isn't all that great, yet everybody wants it. Is it because it's a rare Cantillon? Is it the blueberries?
    Why is this the holy grail of fruit beer?

    Just curious but not curious enough to drive 10hrs one way.
