3 Floyds Mikkeller Boogoop -From Shelton Brother’s Newsletter – “We asked that they make a lot. They did.” According to Shelton Brothers, the annual 3 Floyds Mikkeller Barleywine collaboration is a buckwheat wine that will go into SB’s distribution channels. The suggested retail price is $11.99 and will hit channels December 9th.
Woodstock Inn Station and Brewery – For years many of you have wanted to buy our Old Man Stout to take home or purchase in your favorite store. Well, Butch got an early Christmas present this year, a 22 ounce bottle filler, so in the next couple of weeks your wish will be granted. You will be able to purchase our stout at the Inn and in stores all around.
Flying Fish Brewing – “Since we don’t have the capacity to brew another 750ml Exit Series beer this year, we’re going to sell some of our private stock of previous releases as part of Saturday tours on December 10 and 17. You can purchase the original gold-medal winning Exit 4, Exit 9 Hoppy Scarlet Ale, Exit 13 Chocolate Stout and Exit 16 Wild Rice Double IPA. We’ll also have available 3-pack gift boxes to make up your own personal gift box. And before you ask, Exit 1, 6 and 11 are gone.”
Firestone Walker– Look out for a new spin off beer in the same vein as Nectar Ales, known as 805 Blonde Ale. It will be draft to start only in the 805 area code with 6 packs coming later in the year. Firestone has been piloting a beer called Pivo Pilz at their brewery and tap room, and that might make it to bottle. Announcement forthcoming. The Pale Series will see a slight packaging facelift in 2010. 22 oz. bombers of Humbolt Brown (Hemp Ale) will be discontinued to focus on the 6 pack.
