    Does Trickery usually see some distro after the release?

    Yes (at least for B2, as it was significantly bigger than B1). Hardywood indicated this batch is roughly the same as last year, and that batch hit distro through VA. The 5800 bottles are what Hardywood is selling strictly at the brewery. I'd venture to guess that there are a fair amount going into distro. Want to say last year was like 6500 total bottles, maybe a bit more.

    Oxbow to start distro in VA. Hopefully this eventually means bottles in stores too. The bottle runs have steadily been increasing in size over the past couple years, and the beer quality continues to elevate. Great news.

    surprised how many people even here in VA have not heard of/been to Pen Druid out in Sperryville (about 30 minutes northwest of Culpeper). probably the most unique brewery in VA right now.
    pretty much only wild/farmhouse/coolship type ales (they are in their 2nd season with their coolship so those beers only just started coming out relatively recently)

    On life support. Had to set up a trade of HF Anna for one of his homebrews just to get to drink some beers with him. It has come to that :( LYMI, Nic!

    Oddly enough this coincides with my Spring Break this year. Unfortunately, the wife (mainly her) and I booked a trip to Chicago two months back for April 8th-11th to go see Hamilton. I have the WORST timing :(
