Whole Foods on PCH in Long Beach had it as of last weekend.
Here's what I have lined up for the weekend:
AleSmith - Barrel Aged Wee Heavy
Pretty Things Beer & Ale Project - Baby Tree
If my buddy comes through, he'll be filling up my Bruery growler with their new malt liqour being debuted today. Its called Cornballer, and it's a 9.5% hoppy malt liqour. Cant wait!!!
Heading to Chicago tomorrow for a conference. Anyone familiar with the local brews I should try while I'm there?
Goose Island is out of Chicago, aren't they? You can find their Belgian stuff here in SoCal, but I haven't seen their darker beers around here anywhere.
GI Nightstalker: righteous
GI Bourbon County Vanilla Stout: to steal a line from my buddy: angel c*m.
Love Goose Island. I need to go to Chi town.
No need to say what Unholy and Mitch already suggested. Goose Island is a must!
As big as they are, its a shame their stuff isnt easy to come by out here. They have some of their Belgian style ales (not bad, nothing exciting though) but their stouts and other beers are phenomenal!
Thanks for the suggestions!
BTW these places are always classy:
GI bourbon county stout is one of my favorites.
apparently the bourbon county vanilla is in retirement :(
