    I'm probably going to be buying another case here pretty soon and was wondering if anyone knew of a store that can beat Zipp's $59.xx pricing. So far i have found that to be the best deal in town.

    What's the latest batch? I hope not 01/10 or whatever it was.

    Princetons has cases for under 60 as well. Bottle date was 1/26 or so. I cant belive so many people buy cases of a 10% DIPA. It is really good, but one six pack a season has always been all I ever needed. I would never be able to push threw a case before it turns into pineapple juice.

    Then again, you could always contact the guy on craigslist who has a case of it for sale (bottled 1/10/12) for $150... Or the dude with the six pack selling it for $65...

    That's the best I've seen - the cases they're selling right now at that price are 2.10 - not the 1.10

    Yeah i know the last batch i got from Zipp's was 2.10.12 and that was at least a week ago. They might have a new batch now. I'll head there tonight or tomorrow and find out. Thanks for the replies.
