Not quite yet. I’m not sure any have been filled on the line yet, nor am I sure if the line is even finished being set up. They were hoping to have it all done before the new year, but have had some delays. 4-packs should be in the $9.99 neighborhood. Hopefully it’s a couple more weeks at most.

I’m not sure if they have label approval for the bottles yet. That generally takes about six weeks in Missouri. I don’t have the link for those up to approval at work, I’ll check that when I get home.

Oh man, I thought they did. Bummer.

Just looked on the spreadsheet for 2012 and don’t see anything for Urban Chestnut.

I’ll try to get an update on the bottles next time I stop in there.

The bottling line looks like it is almost done in terms of being set up, and the bottles are physically on premises, still boxed and wrapped up on pallettes. Still not sure when they’ll start, though.

Still nothing I see for state approval. However, GI Lolita is on the list.

Looks like my assumption was wrong. It looks like they were actually ahead of the curve. In talking with someone in a local shop that really stays on top of these things the labels were actually approved in 2011. This explains why it wasn’t on the 2012 spreadsheet. Hopefully it’s not too much longer. Really want those in the local shops, especially the Zwickel.
