Why can't I find Brooklyn's Gold Standard in the Mid Hudson area?

    I've looked in every beer store around. It doesn't seem to exist, and none of them seem to know much about it.

    Does anyone know why it's not in bottle shops?

    It was never bottled. Just kegs. The Brooklyn I rep I spoke to at my local watering hole said there was a good chance they wouldn't brew it again.

    Birdsall House in Peekskill may have it on. Although mid-Hudson can be open to interpretation, so not sure how far you are from there. (It`s an hour from me, but I`m there every so often)

    Thanks for the info, that explains why I haven't' seen it in the bottle shops. I'm in the Poughkeepsie area, so Peekskill wouldn't be too far. I've been putting the bug in the ears of my local watering holes who serve brooklyn, hopefully one of them can find a keg.
