My cousin and I were just enjoying a draft last weekend at a local watering hole. Well, I love the stuff and I just had to have it on tap. $ 215.00 dollars later I have a half on order for delivery this Friday.

The last keg locally for another year. Even the cases are hard to find now.

Anyone who wants one, come on over! I can't wait!

I think I just read somewhere that they still have some in the tanks, actually. I could be very wrong, though. I'll confirm that this week.

We don't get it, or much else, out here. What is the style?

According to them, it's an American Amber. According to everyone else, it's an outstandingly well-balanced IPA.

It's nearly impossible to find any cases left and this was literally the last keg at the distributors so I feel fortunate. They sell drafts at the bar for like $ 6.50 EACH.

Hey, you are allowed to splurge every once and awhile.

I'm so excited!

FWIW, I just saw 4 cases of Nugget Nectar @ my local distro if any eastern PA peeps are having a hard time finding the remaining stock.

I'd be more than willing to trade for some of that Ben. I love all of Troeg's beers, unfortunately we can't get them down here
