    I just picked up a 6 pack today and not 1 bottle had a date on it. I buy a 6 pack almost weekly and they are always dated. Anyone else had this problem?

    Their date coder might be (or have been) out of order. Similar thing happened back in June. Maybe @theburden can provide some info.

    Picked up a 6 of zombie and gumball and noticed the same thing - not a single bottle in the store (yum yum, Alpha king, none of them) was dated. Not surprised though - their date machine is pretty shoddy to be honest.

    How the hell did you know it was Zombie Dust? There was LABELS on the bottles??? :rolling_eyes:

    I picked up a case at the brewery last week and noticed the same thing. Always had a date before. Found that strange.

    I believe they're transitioning to their new bottling line.

    A lot of non-ZD beers we just got in don't have dates either. Guessing it's just an equipment issue.

    Yep. Just working on migrating the date coder over to the new line. The new bottles are coming out in the best shape we've ever been able to produce.

    I wouldn't worry about it too much. If your finding a dusty bottle of Zombie Dust on the shelves, something went terribly wrong

    Good to know. Yes, I wasn't worried that it was old as I get it straight off the truck usually. Also it's gone in minutes so I am sure it's fresh. Was just looking for a reason why the bottle dates suddenly disappeared.
    Thanks for all the feedback
