It's only been six or seven decades since we ended Prohibition, so it makes perfect sense that Wisconsin's New Glarus Spotted Cow is being smuggled in this day & age...
So I also posted this link on Facebook today. Not too long after, I received from correspondence from a high school classmate. He told me he and some friends had been bringing it in by the U-Haul over the past few years.

Had a few of these last night (and currently suffering the after-effects) - it's Magic Hat's spring seasonal. It's technically a lager, but it's dark enough that it could almost be considered an ale. Definitely recommended if you come across it.

This brew is an India Pale Ale by style, but that is where the similarity to most IPAs ends. Each consecutive batch of Hop Project is brewed with a different blend of spicy, aromatic hops, never using the same blend twice. It's a Hophead's dream come true! Check the bottled on date and our blog to decode what specific hop varieties we used in that batch.
by any chance, has anyone been fortunate (or unfortunate) enough to try any of brewdog's crazy abv drinks? i saw they released a 110-proof yesterday at ~$800 per bottle called the end of history ale, i mean i'd drink it if someone bought it for me.. but.. i've never had any of brewdog's ales before though, so im not about to even plop down 120 usd plus s/h for 1 bottle of tactical nuclear penguin and 1 bottle of sink the bismarck, let alone 800 for one ale. just interested to know how they actually taste if anyone's tried them
oh! you guys might know this one, i have been trying to find a very very dark and very very strong lager or doppelbock that was sold in Virginia in at least 2003. it had an eagle or some type of bird on it and referenced native americans somehow. that's all that i remember except that i really liked it. probably a long shot, but who knows, maybe someone knows what im blabbering about

Last time I was in NY State, I picked up a case of Yuengling and a 12 pack of Yuengling Black n' Tan. They don't sell it in New England, so many times I'm in Danbury CT - I run across the state line to pick some up.
Sweetwater 420 (earlier mentioned in this topic) - I had that at The Boro the Monday after Roo. It was pretty good, but I can't find it up north. (Ditto anything by Yazoo, which I was looking to try down there.)
