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.

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

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