The pizza joint around the corner from me has it on tap. Living the dream.

Thought I was getting lucky snagging a sixer on the first release day in Minneapolis. I went to a local brew shop and got one of the last packs they had that day, every store was running out after only hours of announcing Hopslam in stock.

Turns out, every liquor store in the area still has some left. It was in a store across the street from my house, I never knew they had Bell's beer to begin with!

Long story short, I'm stocked. Last year this was all gone after a few days. They must have upped the distribution to MN this year.

I managed to get a few as extras in a trade. Solid beer for sure.

My wife was really sweet and got me some beer for V-day! Hopslam was one of the two, the other was Crooked Tree IPA from Dark Horse. She's a great wife! Now, if only she'd remembered I hate IPAs... lol! At least it's 10% abv!

from Berkley, MI (near Detroit)


--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
I found this site trying to locate some 2013 Bells Hopslam Ale. Still haven't found any on Draft or in Bottles. I even emailed Bells and asked them to send another case to a Party Store near me that already sold out of 10 cases. The rep at Bells was rather rude, and just told me to do the stuff that I had already done to find some. No Luck !
Didn't realize a "spring" Ale would already be sold out in the Home State of the Brewery by the end of January !! They're still shipping Hopslam to out of State locations, but I can't get any when I live 3 hours away from the Brewery. Every Bar and Retailer listed on Bells Beer Finder, that I have called is sold out. Anybody have any place near Detroit where I can try some of this Beverage for the very 1st time ?? I would appreciate it very much.

How far you willing to drive? I have seen it in only place this year, a week or two ago. A small town in St Clair County...Marine City. Tim's Party Store on Parker Street.

Yes, I'm willing to drive a bit to grab a 6 or a 12. I'll give Tim's a call before I go though. Thanks ! I was lucky last night in that I had my very 1st Hopslam on tap at Bagger Dave's in Berkley, a 1/2 mile from my house. I've been looking and calling Everywhere. Knocked back a couple, very good, and worth the Hunt. One Eyed Betty's in Ferndale had it on tap, but just ran out on Friday night. Cheers !

I will be up that way early in the week (probably Tuesday). If I think of it, I'll pop into Tim's and see if they still have some on the shelf. I bought six last time I was there but that's probably enough for me this year. Two Hearted is honestly a much better beer, in my opinion.

I've spent 45 on six packs of that stuff in a month, that's 3 six packs.

The price doesn't bother me on that beer. Despite the word "slam" being in the name, slamming that stuff will lead to a rough night...and rougher morning. Six Hopslams go a long way at my house.
