    Anyone seen any, besides at the brewery?

    I'm over in Pinellas... work in Clearwater, live closer to St. Pete.

    I haven't seen any in the stores around me since January. I know they release in Jan, May, Sept... figured I'd see some by now, but nothing. :slight_frown:

    I found a ton at Total Wine Clearwater back in May. It was the week after they released it at the brewery. I'd imagine it would be the same this time.

    Just called them... manager didn't know, and they were putting in their orders today. Said to call tomorrow.

    WTF? If you're putting in an order (for all beer), can't you look at that list? :astonished:

    I have found that often the fancier Publixes with the bigger beer selections(singles and bombers) often get in the CCB four packs(WOJA,Jose Marti, Cubano Espresso). Hope this helps!

    I just got back from Tampa and the brewery was out, but the brewpub had some 4 packs as of Tuesday.

    South Florida TW's got it this week. Not sure why the west coast hasn't.

    Thanks for the tip! Managed to score some =)
    Not at TW of course, have to wait in line and be a good friend to get anything special there nowadays it seems.

    Unfortunately Orlando is not in the Tampa Bay Area. :wink:

    Any clue what Orlando store? I called a couple and they said that they didn't have any, but they should be getting some any day.

    I have a tip. Use twitter to check with ABCs around FLA. Ask one person from a local ABC and they will help check with other ABC "beer guys" for stock. I just started doing this lately with very much success.

    My pleasure. I actually happened upon another 4 pack at the new Kendall TW yesterday while down south.

    Yeah I never had ABC on my radar until recently. Chatted up one of the employees for a while, he was very knowledgeable about beer.
    Between them and Crown stepping up their game, it's a great time to be a BA in South Florida.

    I haven't seen any around Saint Pete. Asked the manager at TW on Park tonight and he seemed like he had no clue what I was talking about. I'll assume it just hasn't landed yet.

    TW is a gamble unless you know the person you talk to is informed.
    Try hitting up some ABCs or Crown Wine and Liquors.

    Chris at TW St Pete is very knowledgeable. The others... not so much.

    Anybody still seeing White Oak on the shelves in the South Tampa area? Thought two cases would suffice, but turns out I like it too much, and have consumed it all. If not, i'd be happy to swap some 4 packs of FBS for some if you have a surplus.

    I never saw any over in Pinellas. I think this stuff is more rare than Parabola.

    It sat at Total Wine Tampa for two weeks at least, I had just already purchased so much lol.

    The Brewpub sold their last 4pk yesterday afternoon I believe.

    Yeah I called yesterday, and they had one 4 pack left, which did not warrant the nearly hour long round trip drive for me :slight_smile:

    I'd drive an hour, maybe two for another growler of that Rum Soaked White Oak. Probably the best beer i've ever had.

    If he really wanted anyone to know, I'm guessing he would have said it in his initial post rather than just say "It's around still" without saying where.

    I also find it amusing my harmless post of mistaken identity got deleted. My goodness, we are an overly sensitive bunch around these parts these days. What was really wrong with me accidentally calling him Richard that my question needed to be deleted??
