Back in the day, they'd send around 16 cases to Chicago once a year. I'd get half at Marcey, Cutler at Piece would order some, and then the other cases would get split out to whomever knew it existed. When i took over at Publican there was less available and i could only get 2-3 cases. Weird it's on shelves.Back when this was a beer forum we used to talk about not finding Girardin. Its on lots of local shelves atm. Next to the 3F and Tilquin. If only people still drank that stuff.
Yeah I can't remember the last time I saw it on the shelf.
This awesome Park Ridge spot that I don't think has ever been mentioned on TB has it. You may also spot an interesting 3F bottle here...
Bad news / Good news on that front. Not until Fistmas runs out this year so mid-late December, however, wider availability and only $9.99 (or $10.99) (depending on the store).
Tonight, my last Lurie Children's hospital silent auction will be for a group of (up to) 6 to get the back room at the Beer Temple and get to pick 3 Drie Fonteinen bottles from a list of heavy hitters. It will post on my Instagram at 7:30pm and run for 24 hours. I will gladly chip in my fair share of a seat if any of you decide to do this.
Got a couple of 2018 Girardin bottles at Beer Temple yesterday.
