    People must have complained about Ray's holding onto it for that BCBS release because they sold the last shipment they received first come first served.

    Great to see it showing up more often in Milwaukee. That said, I'm drinking a PseudoSue right now and have completely forgotten about the fresh ZD in my fridge.

    TG is making the best IPA's outside of Alpine right now.

    Except they call them APA's.

    Wish they could deliver that stuff a little closer than Franklin. :slight_frown:

    Is it just me or does it seem weird to buy a single bottle of ZD? I have a few analogies, but doubt they can be posted...

    It's like buying a condom at a bar bathroom dispenser. Only the price has been inflated to $2.99.

    Eventually Sosus will make it here. I think they call that a IIPA, right? They just jump straight from APA to IIPA :wink:

    Love me some Black Husky, that's another APA.

    Exactly, who the hell buys ONE condom?

    Black Husky is a brewery.

    7% ABV is the new APA.

    Zombie Dust is in at Discount today. Guessing it's the Milwaukee shop!

    stayclean Initiate (0) Mar 17, 2012 Wisconsin

    I think it's in both, but the Milwaukee shop on Twitter said they are selling it 1 6pk/person. Trying to find a friend who wants to drive down there but the magic eightball says outcome not so good.

    Yeah. Sometimes I get lucky on weekday releases (occasional weekday off) but most of the time not. Anyone know if Three Cellars is out of pseudoSue yet? I'm amazing that TG bottles/kegs don't sell out day-of in MKE!
     
  19. stayclean

    stayclean Initiate (0) Mar 17, 2012 Wisconsin

    I think they sold out the night they got them, or the morning after.

    I guess there are people in Madison who follow Chad around when he drops off cases. We're a little bit lucky in that TG hasn't quite caught fire here yet. The kegs last a few days @ Three Cellars. Get it while you can! I've been bugging other local shops to get some TG as well, but apparently they have to figure out how to pick it up in Madison and bring it to MKE themselves.

    Yeah, I'm DYING for a place closer to Riverwest to get at least a keg or something. Really want to try some TG beer sometime, but Franklin is not close enough for someone without a car, ha.

    Nobody wants to drive half way to Decorah to get them. Sorry to all you people who live in Franklin, but Three Cellars is a pain in the ass to get to, even for those with a car.

    Agreed! One of these days I need to get info from the place in the Dells that fills growlers of TG. If they allow multiples, it'd be worth the trip to bring it back for a bottle share/trade.

    It's not so bad- I usually do a loop. Otto's, Ray's, Discount. By then it's 3pm and Three Cellars is open.

    Discount is officially out of ZD.

    I can usually get out one day a month to do some beer shopping. No kids or house yet. I'm sure that will all change in the next few years.

    Discount Milwaukee tweeted out that they had ZD this afternoon and then that it was gone about an hour later. I was at Whole Foods yesterday and they still had none but they do have bombers of Dreadnaught... for $10.99 though I think I would have been better off with a 6 pack of Sucks or Hop Slam.
     
  30. sisterthelonious

    sisterthelonious Initiate (0) Aug 3, 2013 Wisconsin

    Dread is really great when it's fresh. But yeah, I'd go for 72 ounces of a good beer for the same price most of the time. Although Slam is in the $17 range, no?

    hansenm72 Initiate (0) Jan 23, 2014 Texas

    HUGE SALE at Whole Foods... it was only $15.99 :wink: still 72oz of HopSlam would have been the wiser purchase - it seemed to be fresh though I forget what the date on the bottle actually was... I know I looked at it but then I drank it and forgot a bunch of things so I guess it did the trick.

    I went to a Whole Foods once and they were having a 25% off all craft beer sale. Pretty awesome, but I haven't seen the same sale since. This was 2-3 years ago.

    I live in West Milwaukee, and work in Oak Creek...still a pain in the ass to get to. Their one downfall, IMO.

    I like the vibe there, but they should get rid of the wine. :wink:

    Disagree, my wife is into wine. Makes it easier to go there on the weekends.

    Getting the wife wine is a free pass to see what's new. It's my favorite job.

    Living on the Eastside and then having to get to 76th St and then to Three Cellars sucks. Much rather just stop at Discount and call it a day plus word on the streets is TG will make it to us sooner or later without self distributing. Let us all agree that Three Cellars is way to far out of the way for anyone who lives around Milwaukee ha.

    They already self-distribute to Woodman's in La Crosse & Madison. I'm hoping they do the same in Waukesha at some point.

    Talked to a few shop owners/managers that mentioned Sue may actually make to the shelves in Madison given larger shipments and regular deliveries in the near future. By the way Sue > ZD :wink: Surprised there isn't a thread titled 'Sue vs ZD'. I apologize to the OP for continuing the threadjack.

    There just isn't enough Sue that makes it into ZD territory. I hope they never distro to Chicago, that would cut way into the regular amounts we see in Wisco...
