Distribution News: Lagunitas, Green Flash, Stone not coming??
Some good news and bad news this week regarding distribution. I guess it is not necessarily bad news, but according to my source the whole Stone Brewing to Iowa thing isn’t looking good right now. Speaking with distributors and beer vendors, Stone has not/is not getting back to them regarding their products hitting shelves in Eastern Iowa, so a bit of a snag there. Not sure what the delay is, but it doesn’t look like that will be happening this summer.
Onto the good news. My source says that Lagunitas AND Green Flash are 1-2 months away from hitting shelves in Eastern Iowa. Fantastic news! If you haven’t had the chance to try the beers from these breweries you should, they are a real treat. Check out the brews from Lagunitas here: (http://www.lagunitas.com/beers/index.html) Really like their IPA and Little Sumpin’ Sumpin’.
Here is a list of Green Flash brews: (http://www.lagunitas.com/beers/index.html) Their Palate Wrecker and West Coast IPA are some of the best IPAs I’ve ever had.
I will post more when I hear more! Cheers!
