If you have Theme Mango Cheesecake in your possession, please do not open it. Do not attempt to transport or ship it. Do not attempt to return it. And do not remove the cans from the plastic holders. Dispose of the product by following these steps: (i) Before disposing of any cans of Theme Mango Cheesecake, please put on protective gloves and a face shield (or goggles and a mask); (ii) Place all remaining Theme Mango Cheesecake cans in a closed box and place immediately in a secured garbage container or dumpster outside.

2020 was probably my best beer year ever: cases of Heady Topper (pre-pandemic distro), Citra, Russian River, Moonlight, SARA, and Alvarado.

And this year, I already have Heady Topper, Moonlight, Younger, and Monkish in the bag.

I cannot believe how convenient beer has gotten. I love it.

I can’t say that for me here in PA. There are a few PA breweries that will ship in state. Forest and Main doesn’t ship to my county anymore but I will place an order for pick-up every now and then. There are a couple of breweries out-of-state that will ship but I can’t get behind the $35 shipping fee. That’s like a whole case of beer itself.

I guess it's different price points. The hazies near us run $5-$6 a can, and shipping is around $25, which is basically an extra buck a can.

Ironically, I balk at ordering Moonlight ($75 a case + $25 shipping), but didn't think twice about a case of Monkish which was around $135 before shipping. Something about the base price anchors us.

It is a damn shame that PA doesn't have more options. I think wine made it easier for beer shipping in-state in CA (GSO).

I haven’t kept many tabs on it but the only two that I do know that ship in the Philly area are Forest & Main and Tired Hands. It boggles my mind that some of the other ones don’t.

did a quick Google and came up with this so there are other options... but I can get just as good stuff going to a store

Nice humble brag about Younger, lol. That being said I've lucked out on more Side Project releases this year than I've had bottles of side project in all the preceding years combined.
