Three Floyds. Finally!

Posted in Craft Beer, Unavailable in New York City by larrykoestler on September 4, 2012

Speechless…

As anyone who knows me knows, I have spent much of the past year seeking out craft beers unavailable for purchase in New York. “Beerhunting,” for lack of a better term, has been an incredibly fun and satisfying pursuit, and has led to the procurement of some of the finest and most highly-thought-of beers in the country, including Russian River’s Pliny the Elder, Surly Furious, Bell’s Two-Hearted Ale, and numerous others.

However, my white whale has been getting my hands on anything by Three Floyds. The Indiana brewery has an exceptionally limited distribution area in the midwest, and as fate would have it, I simply don’t have many beer contacts in that neck of the country. However, through the magic of Reddit, I was able to secure not one highly-sought-after brew from Three Floyds, but three:

  • Dreadnaught Imperial IPA
  • Arctic Pancer Wolf Double IPA
  • Apocalypse Cow Double IPA

Also part of the trade was a bottle of New Glarus’ Blacktop IPA. Christmas has indeed come early this year, my friends!
