I believe my sister picked that one up at Hi Time, so I don't know if it's readily available everywhere, but you should be able to find it at a decent shop.
    BevMo carries this

    just back from Philly..if you can't have it on draft, it's the next best thing

    I'm really digging the "Hoptober" by New Belgium Breweries.

    FYI, Sierra Nevada Celebration Ale is out already, at least up here in SLO County. Seems awfully early in the season but given that this is my all-time favorite beer, I'm certainly not complaining! 2 12-packs in the fridge, short 3 bottles that I had last night. Damn good stuff. I can't wait for the colder nighttime weather. It just seems weird to be having a Celebration Ale when it's still 70 degrees outside.

    Stormy2213: Totally agree with you on this one. Another freaking gem from the folks at Sierra Nevada! Slightly hoppy, but smooth going down and does not leave a hoppy bitter aftertaste either! Strangely enough, I found this at Target in North Hollywood. I think it's Victory and Lankershim? Right next to the Payless and Popeyes. I was surprised to see this there, so I ended up picking up two 6-ers.

    The Bigfoot still reigns over everything to me, but Celebration is always a safe bet

    I went to The Bruery's "Black Tuesday" release last night and was able to get 3 bottles! I was 9th in a line of over 300 people! It was a hell of a turnout, and these bottles are already up at $100/bottle on e-bay. The hype for this beer is insane, but rightfully deserved in my opinion. I was able to get a taste of it in the tasting room last night, and at 19.5% ABV you would have absolutely no idea, as it is very well masked! This beer is for those who, like myself, consider ales like Sierra Nevada Bigfoot and Goose Island's Bourbon County Stout the standard for all beers This thing is a monster with 4 balls. If you are into stuff that is above and beyond, and just over the top - seek this beer! If you like bourbon barrel aged beers - hunt this one down!

    I am sure they sold all of it last night, since there were only 1,000 bottles available. The good news though, is that they'll be releasing this again next year. I am going to open up one bottle in the near future with a few buds that want to try it, and will give it my all to let the other two sit at least 5 years to see what some age does to them. They'll be just fine considering they're almost 20%ABV, and it will be interesting to see what time does with them.

    I also had the Two Turtle Doves on tap and that was delicious! I need to re-evaluate it, since I sampled that after the Black Tuesday. It's a Belgian Dark ale with toasted pecans and wow!!! It's a must have is all I can really say and I expect it to be even better with a fresh palate.

    Chocolate Rain out of the cask was also brilliantly done. It's a special version of the Black Tuesday with Cocoa Nibs. Very chocolatey and comparable to the Southern Tier Choklat (back when it used to be good) but so much smoother and like silk running down the back of your throat. Word has it, that it'll be next year's Black Tuesday release and at 23% ABV!

    I was around the middle of that line. When I got to the register (4 hours later), there were 200 bottles left. They did end up selling out with about 100 people still in line. I would have been PISSED! The wife and I both picked up 3 bottles. Looking forward to cracking one next weekend with a buddy of mine. The other...will age away.

    That line was stupid. Hopefully they learn from this years turnout and use that knowledge for next years release. And hopefully when they say to start forming a line at 4:30 next time, people will actually follow that rule. That was directed toward you.

    Enjoy!
