I had a dream last night that I bought the last two six packs at Friar Tuck. I don't actually know if and when they'll have it, but, apparently, I'm excited about Hopslam.

I'm hearing Thursday everywhere. I wonder when they get beer deliveries. I am in the middle of finals right now and get a lunch break around 12:35, so I may use it to go get a couple of six packs.

I heard somewhere that they shipped on the 10th, and after that, it's up to the stores to decide when to shelve them.

It took visiting four liquor stores (and thanks to Sarah and my dad) but I got a case + 4. BTW, Doti's in Elmhurst seems to be the diamond in the rough again.

Binny's in Glen Ellyn is getting 30 cases tomorrow or anyone who still needs to get there fix on.

Places by me don't have it yet, or maybe they're not getting it. Save some for me Dave! I'll pay you!

What are people paying this year? I just picked up 2 six packs at Foremost in Villa Park and they were $20 each! I feel like Doti had them for 16/17 last year.

Anyone have any info on mini-kegs or seen any? All I can find on them is some forum post about the Lakeview Binny's getting 10 on the 20th.

Side note: While I thought four loko was illegal now, they had it at foremost. So I picked up a few cans. Between that and hopslam, I think I'm going to die.

I'd definitely keep an eye on a Twitter search for hopslam- you can find where they have it in bottles, where they have it on tap, and prices people are paying as well.

Got a sixer from famous for 18.67 after tax. Sarah says it was 16.99 (before tax) at Doti's.

Ah, okay, the price hasn't changed, foremost is just a rip-off. Good to know.

I was browsing the reddit threads about hopslam, expecting a bunch of people saying "overrated", but that wasn't really the case. Sure there are a few, and some others talking about Pliny the Elder being better, but for the most part it's posts like, "At first I thought, 'goddammit, this can't possibly be worth $20,' but as soon as I tried it I was like 'LET ME GIVE YOU MONEY!'"

the other beer thread was planning and zoning, so I figured it'd fit better here. Info on brewing a clone/close approximation

Adam and I found it at a random Wine Shop on S Dearborn at Polk for about $16...just walked in and they had a decent amount.

So, apparently the small shops in the city have it, if anyone is interested.

I'll put something witty here later...

4 months away.

Found this on a youtube page of a guy with an epic beard who reviews a new beer just about every day. Here's his review of Hopslam.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LSAq2FzpF2k

Spoiler alert: it's liquid sex.

I still prefer Green Flash's West Coast IPA to Hopslam. The slight sweetness in Hopslam takes it down a notch for me.

Also, This could be awesome.

I found Green Flash on tap at a sandwich place across the street from where I work. It's really good, but I'm still in the Hopslam camp.
