The Shelf Report

At the suggestion of a longtime reader, I'm going to try to do a better job of posting new beers that come in that might slip under the radar as we talk about super hyped up releases like Chocolate Ale and Hopslam. Some are limited, some are seasonal, some are just new year-round releases. So, every so often I'll put up a post like this, giving you an alert to beers that have hit shelves that you may have missed, as well as ones that are coming in the near future.

Now On Shelves:

Big Sky Bobo's Robust Porter
Breckenridge Pandora's Bock
Bridgeport Black Rain
Great Divide Nomad
Lagunitas Imperial Red Ale
Mikkeller 19 (culmination of their 19 single-hop IPA series)
Mikkeller Invasion IPA
Mikkeller It's Alright
Mikkeller Tiger Baby
Mikkeller/Three Floyd's Boogoop
Ommegang BPA
Road Trip Old Soul Ale (brewed by Flying Monkey)

On Shelves Soon:

Bell's Hopslam - Gomer's posted today that it is being released by the brewery today, so will likely be in KC distributor hands on Friday. Possibly looking at next Tuesday for arrival on shelves. Keep an eye out for further updates.

Founder's Curmudgeon's Better Half - Scheduled for a February 13th release. Some of you may have tried this at Hopfest last year when they were calling it Kaiser Curmudgeon.

Odell Footprint RegionAle - Scheduled for a February 11th release. Interesting story behind this beer, Odell sourced ingredients from the 10 states that are in its distribution area.

O'Fallon BDS - A new Belgian-style, dark strong ale aged in Port barrels, this was scheduled to be released in early February, so look for it very soon, possibly as early as tomorrow. Should be pretty limited, as they only made 300 cases.

No Shelf For You:

Founder's All Day IPA - Won't be making it to the KC market until late this year or possibly even next year. They said the hop harvest was too soft, so in 2012 it was only released to MI, OH, NC and Chicago.

Anything I missed? Any other beers you are curious about? Let me know in the comments!
