I take it you heard the NPR story this morning? It seems that this may be a very rare chance to buy it in the States, although it's going to be REALLY hard and many places are likely already sold out.

No, I just saw it online. I have tried over 1000 different beers and was thinking it would be fun to try it. I could buy one on ebay, but I really just want to have it locally. Wonder if Sidelines got any?

Ohio is not that far, but by now it's probably too late. There's so little of it, and the only way it's sold is in those 6-packs with the glasses. Maybe you can still snag one because people will hesitate to spend 85 bucks or whatever, but I kinda doubt it. The rarity ensures that it'll be gone one way or another.

They were probably gone before they even arrived.

Pennsylvania needs to abandon the fascist state-run liquor monopoly.

Not saying you're right or wrong, but there are 28 other states that also aren't getting any.
