The Shelf Report

It's been a little while since we've done a Shelf Report, so here are some updates on what's out there, what you might have missed and what's coming up.

You May Have Missed

Boulevard Rye-on-Rye (probably not likely to find bottles still lingering around, but it's starting to show up on tap at many places)
Founders KBS
Goose Island Bramble Rye (did anyone actually see this?)
Sierra Nevada Hoptimum (still being spotted at some stores)

Now On Shelves

Free State Brinkley's Maibock
Left Hand Smoke Jumper
Leinenkugel's Big Eddy Wee Heavy Scotch Ale (
New Holland El Mole Ocho
North Coast Old Stock Ale 2012
Schlafly Special Release Export IPA
Schlafly Yakima Wheat
Unibroue Grande Reserve 17

On Shelves Soon

New Belgium Shift Pale Lager - This new year-rounder in 16 oz. cans is expected to start rolling out in markets across the country on April 2nd.

Odell Footprint - I confirmed with Odell that Kansas City is due for our shipment of Footprint in early April. Though it's well after the 2/13 brewery release date, I'm still glad to hear that it will be coming. It seems like we typically get Odell special releases a month to a month and a half after brewery release.

On Shelves Eventually

Odell Shenanigans - A beer that was actually the result of a few barrels that were a Woodcut mishap, they enjoyed their mistake so much that they decided to play with it a little more and bottle it. They noted on Monday that it will start shipping out next week, so I imagine the Kansas City shipment may not get here until May. Excited to try this one, though.


  1. Odell Footprint landed in Topeka last week.

  2. Free State Imperial Stout has been spotted around KC shelves. While it's been out a while in Lawrence, it just came to KC this week. I know both Rimann locations have it.

  3. bramble rye is just so good. so glad i got a bottle.

  4. Did you get your bottle of Bramble Rye locally, Mr (or Ms) Anonymous?

  5. yes, berbiglia westport. they offered it to me when i got my rye on rye. the guy said that they only got 9 bottles out of 4 cases sent to the area.
    i drank it and went back immediately to try to get another but they sold out. very unique beer.

  6. FYI, I had a Rye on Rye Friday afternoon at Fric-n-Frac. It 'twas amazing, didn't know it had come out but immediately said yes when the server announced it.
