The New Greatest Thing Ever: Imperial Stout Trooper Beer



Sometime around Monday, 12/21, the beer will be sent from
distributors to stores, this according to a Beer Advocate poster who
got the info from the brewery’s Rob Leonard. Leonard has posted his own
update in the thread:

“We distribute in CT, MA, RI, NY? and FL. We listened to the BA
voice and made IST more affordable and brewed twice as much this year.
Our target shelf price is $13.99 for a 750ml- not bad, right? Better
than $10 for a 12 oz. The bourbon barrel aged IST will be a brewery
only release, but the 750s will go to the stores who have supported us
to keep it fair. There may be a very limited growler opportunity TBA.”

With an average of 4.31 on Beer Advocate,
IST appears to be very close to breaking the top 100, should that
average hold up on this next batch. This is the first time the beer
will appear in 750’s after previously being available in 12 oz.

I repeat: HOLY. LIVING. SHIT. My new and only desire in life is to drink this beer. I’ll be checking my local liquor stores, but seriously, Topless Roboteers, please, please, please — if any of you know how I can get a hold of this beer as soon as humanly possible, YOU EMAIL ME. YOU EMAIL ME IMMEDIATELY, GODDAMMIT. And all hail Onanrulz for the tip.
