Local whole foods (near Sacramento) went through a case in about 20 minutes. Had the beer guy hold one for me over the weekend and it was definitely fantastic. Anyone having trouble getting ahold of these?

Had it last year when it was draught only, BOY is this another great brew from FW. Just like DDBA the toffee creamy vanilla combo with the strong bourbon essence is phenomenal!

Big props to Adam, David and Matt again, cant wait till beers like PNC and Stickee monkee get regular distro, Firestone is at the top of their game!

EDIT: To answer thread question, new york has not seen it yet. Double DBA just hit over here a couple weeks ago so i would say at least 6 weeks for full disto from release date on these guys.

I would love to get some if you can! We still haven't seen it yet and it's not looking like we will. If you could grab 2 bottles at list price I'd love to trade. I'm in IL and get a great assortment of stuff. Let me know. Thanks!!

I live 20 mins from fw brewery. Not sure how to ship it but maybe can figure it put if anyone needs it. Everyone deserves to try it.
