    Anyone seen it at Tower/Greens/Hop City? I'm heading down this weekend and thought I'd look for some.

    The only CC you will find (with some luck) is Southerly Love...it should still be around at one of those places you mentioned. Unfortunately, BTyers hasn't blessed Atlanta with his cans yet! Hoping we see those prior to the February estimate I heard.

    Thanks man, I called Tower today and the girl said they didn't even carry it, stopped by anyway and found a couple tucked back on one of the shelves. I think there were a few more bottles back there. Funny to see cases of Prairie Bomb just chilling in stacks on the floor.

    Yeah, as with any beer stores, the intelligence of the employees varies greatly. And I expect Bomb to continue to sit (even though they just came to Atlanta a few months ago)...that's what happens when you sell a highly overrated 12oz non BA stout for $9/bottle

    Cans will most likely be showing up in March and not any sooner. We can't keep up with Athens' demand for cans yet. We're getting in the new tanks in February that will facilitate the Atlanta supply. Until then, we're brewing all we can brew and getting as much draft as we can get to Atlanta as possible. Thanks for the love

    Creature Comforts' Southerly Love was a real surprise to me. It's a phenomenal saison. Way better than many HF saisons I've had.

    Killer beer. Wish my dumbass had saved some for trade. I crushed more than a case.

    They still have a small amount for sale at the brewery. The next bottles getting released will likely be Curious 2 and Curious 3.

    My apologies for the hijack but I'm going to be in Atlanta for a hot minute on Saturday. Any CC whatsoever floating around town? I think we're grabbing a quick bite in the Inman Park area before heading North.

    How are you getting here? I know you're gonna be in Asheville for a few days. The reason why I ask is that cans of CC are few and far between. You may be able to find Athena but almost certainly not any Tropicalia. If you are in Athens though, you can find it by the case at gas stations and supermarkets (so I've heard). So if you can go through Athens on your way to or from Atlanta, I'd do that if you really wanted some CC. OR, I'm sure someone would be willing to trade you some of their CC for some SARA and save you a trip.

    Thanks. Yeah, Athens is not in the cards unfortunately. Our travel itinerary is kind of hilarious on Saturday but we arrive in Atl around 4 and are then driving to Asheville. I was hoping to pop into a store in Atlanta and grab a couple of 6ers of Athena but maybe that is wishful thinking.

    Either one really. Only thing I've had from CC is Southerly Love and I was pretty impressed.
