    Yeah, but that Cigar City/The Bruery collab was damn near impossible to find out here in Chicago, so if you can snag it at a decent price let me know...

    I will go to the store this weekend and take note of what they have. The only thing that sells out is the 6-packs of Jai Alai IPA. This particular store does not sell a lot of 22 ounce bottles. They sit on the shelf b/c $10 bottles of beer are pretty expensive for that neighborhood.

    Got the first ever Iowa craft beer festival is Des Moines tomorrow. Should be a good turn out. Got 4-5 breweries that have some Templeton Rye barrel aged beers there. Craft beer scene in Iowa is still young, but should be a great time.

    Had the full Oscar Blues range at a beer dinner tonight at the Thomas Jefferson Hotel in Richmond. The food was great and beer was quite good as well. I'm a fan of the G'Knight and One Hit Wonder. Not a fan of the Gubna.
