    My local place is tapping a cask of Hopslam next week. I'm excited. Also had Zombie Dust on cask at the brewery last weekend. It was exceptional.

    Nice I should be getting some in a few weeks...how many batches are released a season? I might want to ask my trading partner to wait for the second release seeing I wont get a box to him till a week from wed most likely.

    I can't figure out where I can get it. It said I should be able to buy it in chicago, but the website locator only lists the brewery itself.

    Do you know if bottles will be available in SC? I know that it stole the show at the Charleston Brewvival 2012.

    I have no idea. It'll be a rare find if you do. I'd call to major stores and ask but they might not even know.

    Is it available in your area? I have some family up that way that might be able to grab some.

    My friends are sort of getting into craft beer and they are desperate to try Pliny the Elder, we are located in MA though. Anyone who has distribution (CA,PA?,CO?) want to send me a few bottles? I would happily trade for some of the good stuff available here or pay for the bottle, shipping, and a small convenience charge. Let me know!

    Yes, binny's is supposed to have it Wednesday or Thursday of this week. I already have a 6-pack reserved at the at the binny's on grand downtown. I asked for a case, but all he would do is a 6-pack. The Lincoln Park whole foods and galleria liquors at north and wells also carried it last year, but not sure when they are getting it this year.

    It was released in Indiana last week and luckily my uncle who lives in Indianapolis got me 2 6-packs.

    I also noticed it on tap at a lot more bars in Chicago last year than ever before so it should be the same with this year.

    Nice...I should be getting some in the next two weeks. Sent my box to Chi today with Jacks abby and MA saisons pretty much filling most of the box.

    I also got a box yesterday, Cherry Rye as an extra? I was pretty shocked and happy. Will be sending this guy a thank you box in a few weeks when Jacks Abbys Barrel Aged Beer comes out.

    Binny's on clark told me to call back on thursday and won't take a reservation. :(

    I could try running over to west lakeview liquors and see if they have it but I have to go buy something tonight at the petco across the street from binny's...

    I didn't have any problem buying it last year. I'm not sure why everyone is freaking out. They make a ton.
