That is weird. My HT is Fuquay hasn't been carrying these, but that's not too unexpected. Whole Foods is only a slight detour for me, so I'll probably grab mine there along with some other interesting something or another I haven't tried. And maybe some breakfast sausage for mañana.

They suddenly showed up at my local HT about a week ago. The cold-booze aisle, from left to right is:

Mega Swill in all possible packaging
Quality Beer in 6 or 12 packs
Expensive Beer in individual bottles, large and small, and 4-packs
White Wine

I imagine what they carries varies significantly from N. Raleigh to the boonies. They just built a brand new store a few miles up the road from an existing one, and the new one has a much broader selection of 'fancy' type stuff (meat, beer, cheese, etc).

I'm a sucker for WF, though, overpriced as it may be.

I got mine at lunchtime, will chill it when I get home and should pop it open right around the time I finish my mash tonight (Friday)!

Chimay also makes their own cheese. I bet that would be a great pairing with their ales, and I'd love to try it. But I have yet to find any of their cheeses here in the States. Hey, that reminds me of that old hymnal, Oh, What A Friend We Have In Cheeses!

My Chimay just called on the phone to ask when I was coming home. I guess I shouldn't keep her waiting.

Well, my trip to Borders was a total bust (who the hell pays $19 for a CD?), so I'm going in for the review...thread to follow!
