Are you the only person in California that has Einstock Winter ale in stock?
Finally found this beer here. Had one yesterday and really enjoyed it.

Looks like St Bernardus X-mas (750s, 330ml bottles, and cans) seem to be all over the Mid-Atlantic but now.

We got an Einstock porter drop earlier this year, but it was gone before I could buy any. >:(

Picked up a 4-pack of St. Bernardus Xmas in cans in WI, the price was right. $13 and change.

Wife drank the whole 4-pack of St. B cans while i was locked away in quarantine.  :hot:

So I picked up a 750 of St.B plus single bottles of Tsjeeses Reserva and Nice Chouffe yesterday.  I’ll get into them closer to Christmas.

I got a 4-pack and had one last night.  Delicious
Quote from: J-Rod
I ended up drinking 9 times my body weight in beer, broke three glasses over my head, 7 over others, ordered up 17 hookers for a little afterparty, held a cabbie hostage while running his cab through the Madison capitol doors, and I grabbed gator's ass.

Local place still has bottles of 2010, might pick one up for old times sake. Used to like T'Smisje Kerst also, wonder if they have any of that stashed somewhere.

Picked up a can of St. Bernardus X-Mas. Looks like more of the Belgian stuff is arriving on the selves around here.  But no Corsendonk yet.

Picked up some Scaldis at Costco yesterday.

Found another four pack of St. B cans.  It is fantastic.  :banned:

So... I did not see Corsendonk anywhere this year.  Confirmation from elsewhere around the country?

My store didn't have a single Belgian xmas beer this year.  Thanks, Biden!

I haven't Corsendonk here in many years now.

Saw it here, but was already buying way too much other stuff.

It doesn't last long enough here to get old, if I don't buy on sight it's gone in a week or two. Can't say if it was leftover stock from the distributor, but I doubt it.
