    I live in Northern Virginia and have not been able to get any jai Alai in months, probably since this summer. Did the distribution for CCB change?

    Anyone have any idea what is going on?

    Don't know. But I can say that ATL hasn't seen Jai Alai in months, either. And we were routinely getting week-old shipments up until the time that CCB brought on its new canning line. We still get the occasional release--I've seen Maduro Brown and Florida Cracker, so I know that some is getting through. Just no Jai Alai.

    I contacted the brewery a few times as well asking this question and they never got back to me.

    We were getting it every week around here in NoVa too....even at Total Wine. Now, nada....it is a great IPA, too bad they seem to have backed off Virginia distribution.

    Dunno what happened. Plenty here, though, usually 2 days to 2 weeks old.

    If anyone ISO, lmk. Wiling to trade for your locals, $4$.

    It's around. The holdays have wiped all the shelves clean. Give it a few more days and it will pop back up. I'm also willing to trade fresh Jai Alai for your local IPA's. Cheers!

    I have never seen it NJ but got 2 sixes in NY/ LI this week first sighting in many months..12/13 cans
    It seemed a shadow of its self, no juiciness going on, inversion was here a few months ago and that was better
    Have some coming from Miami now hope it's more the JA in my mind....or I'm wrong

    Seriously, the distribution in VA sucks. I live in Norfolk and can't get anything from Cigar City to save my life.

    I was at my local Publix ( McNab in Pompano) this morning and they didn't have any CCB products on the shelves, let alone Jai Alai.This hasn't happened to me since early fall of 2013.

    Last time I was at the brewery they mentioned contracting their distro to better serve just Florida. Fresh Jai Alai from the zwickel valve is the best!

    I did say McNab. It's just a wee bit west of Federal. Since the date I mentioned up above, they always had Jai Alai on Sunday mornings when I do my shopping. I try to get there before 10:00 before church lets out. This one does have a pharmacy and attentive staff.

    I have a buddy that's in Clermont, FL for the weekend. Anyone know a place close by that he could pick up some Jai Alai for me?

    karamchandani Initiate (0) Aug 22, 2013 South Carolina

    Thanks. Nearest Total Wine is in Orlando which is ~40 minutes away. Looks like a lot of Publixs in Clermont so hopefully they'd have it. I just don't want him to waste time driving around trying to find it for me.

    There is an ABC in Clermont. They even have a growler fill station

    Publix ad today, 1/14, shows CCB beers at 7.99, Thu 1/15 thru Wed 1/21. Time to turn the sixers upside down.

    I got the impression from talking to the folks at G&G that if Jai Alai sold well (which I'm assuming it did) that the distributor was going to be bringing in more CCB. I guess that wasn't the case. Pretty bummed out about it.

    I had to go back and check the flyer I received today, as I didn't see the add you were reffering to. Yep, there it was, in fine print, right under the ShockTop add.
    I'll see if I can score me some!

    Hey, I gots me some 10 day old Jai Alai for $7.99. It was warm so I will not enjoy 'till tomorrow.
    Friday will make it taste that much better.

    Good score. I, believe it or not, enjoy lapping up the Florida Cracker. Found a case of week old cans. Took half. I'm working through some Founder's Harvest right now. Gonna pass on the JA. Maybe some Invasion next week.

    Hello Florida BAers! Sorry to be a pain, but I have a Jai Alai distro question. I'm going to be in Cocoa Beach for a couple of days next week with family. Is Jai Alai typically an easy find in this area (at Publix or ABC Liquors for instance) or do you have to hunt a bit? With the family in tow and a full agenda, hunting isn't in the cards. Thanks in advance!

    Should be an easy find in Cocoa Beach between Publix or ABC, just call first.
