Good luck keeping it around for a week let alone until summer. It actually would be a disservice to do that as the hops would fade. Kind of like on a bottle of Pliny where they specifically direct you to not save it. I saved one for two months and there was a significant loss of hop flavor and aroma, not nearly as good.

Yeah I thought that might be true of this style of beer. I am still learning all the in's-and-out's of craft and HB's. Guess thats a built in excuse to get a little fuzzy on Hopslam this weekend!!

I managed to pick up a 6 pack, but it's long gone already around these parts.

Funny because the beer distributor by me told me they havent even been able to order it yet. I know it does go fast when it comes in though

Shop in GR ran out almost before the day was out.

I think PA gets Bells beer even before Osceola County, MI does!

My buddy in Chicago got it a full week before we got it in Lansing (50 miles from the brewery!)

I just picked up a 6 pack here in Lansing. I can't wait to get out of work to try one. It was 16.99 at Horrocks
