Missed the TN launch, apparently. Will be looking forward to getting this on the shelves though. Place near my house is having a Bell's 6 tap (mini) takeover on Thursday but I'll be at the Preds game :(

That's what I've heard. And it was under $20 for a 3 year aged bottle... I'll take it.

FYI, In Michigan you do not need a membership to buy beer and liquor from Costco.

Nice. I've had a 2014 about every three months, and have had the 2015 on tap, and I gotta say the 2015 is way better. Both are good, but 2014 was tough to dig into fresh.
There are bottles of 2014 still on the shelves here.

Same in TN, they are technically different stores, but that has more to do with the laws not allowing high abv beer being sold with regular beer. It's all kinds of dumb.

Our Costco is right next door to the brewery... only separated by a hop field. So they usually have pretty good deals on SN stuff. Also Sierra Nevada is huge on supporting local businesses, so they don't try to compete with local business prices. Not that Costco is considered "buying local", but Costco also seems to support local businesses by carrying local products. Anyway, it's almost always cheaper to buy SN beer at a bottle shop or grocery store than directly from the source. Only time I purchase directly from the brewery is for brewery only releases.
