their website seems to still say its seasonal.

for us, you can normally find breakfast stout year round, as it sits on shelves for some time. this year, there was still old stock available when the new stock hit.

I saw Anchor's Meyer Lemon Lager for the first time today and bought a sixer, and I regret it deeply. It's bad. They don't usually drymount up but man, this isn't fun.

check the distribution list on RR's website and calling around is your best bet.

The Alpine kegs that are being distributed across the country are brewed by Green Flash and while the kegs have been decent they do not compare to the bottles that Alpine produces. Hopefully, GF will get the recipes dialed in on the large scale batches sooner rather than later.

One of my favorite (like top 3) brews. I did a side-by-side '12, '13, '14', and '13 was my favorite. I am down to one '13 and half case of '14.... I'm definitely going to age them for as long as I can.

TG distro finally hit southern WI, so I grabbed a 4'pk of Pseudo Sue. Since most of the hyped IPAs have really let me down, (cough: Zombie Dust), my hopes are pretty low. I will report back after the weekend.

I was sitting on close to a case, but gave some away to folks here, local beer buds and keep drinking them myself..down to about 7 or 8 now..don't think many will make it to BF, when the 15's come out

I drank one last week and thought the same! Pretty crazy, as 2013 seemed to drop off pretty quickly. More coffee than a fresh Speedway I drank with it, too.

I've missed out on all the kegs sent to IL, but everything I've read/heard echoes your sentiment. Sucks, because I went to Alpine last year and was absolutely blown away by Nelson and Pure Hoppiness. Was ecstatic when I read they're distributing here, but I'm not going out of my way at this point to find it on draft.
