This beer is available at Printers Row right by where I park when I drive to work (and largely where Iíve been picking up beer).. need to stop by and grab it and that Brown Fox.. apparently Philosophers Stone as well this week..




Incinerator Doppelbock hit stores today. I hope Philosophers Stone is also this week.

Very limited.. hear itís pretty much gone around this area, fwiw.

I had to swing by Joliet earlier this week to get the last bottle somewhere..

Think Vav at the big Binnyís only managed 6 bottles for his store..


Itís all over the place down in Carbondale. On another note, I just moved from Carbondale to Rockford this week, so I no longer have access to that beer. So, in all reality, this whole post was kind of pointless.

Right, I also hear itís all around Iowa too.

Possibly got spread very thin in Chicago.. and beer folks are vultures around these parts.. so there you go.
