Where the fuck do you find this stuff? I have searched all over but to no avail...I even emailed a distributor but he hasn't gotten back to me. Little help? I'm in the north jersey area.

Edit: I've been drinking a bunch of Magic Hat Fat Angel and Boddingtons...thought I'd try something different.

Any good beer distributor should have it, all the places out here have it and i know they do distribute in NJ Even some supermarkets will have the year round stuff and I know all the distributors here have the seasonals ( my chocolate stout :drool)

Supermarkets by me have it, as well as most pubs here in the city.

Ok, I found it at a Shoprite Liquor about 15 mins from my house. This place is the mother of all liquor stores. I got the Lager and Brown Ale. Both are very good but the Ale is a little yeasty kind of. The Drink date is also Oct. 04 so it is kind of old. But I like it. Still can't find that stupid chocolate stout though.

Those drink dates are meaningless iunless its like a year old, and i actually have some chocolate stout from last year and is still quite good. I like the brown ale, but you should try the pennant pale ale ( the blue label) and I think they make one of the best octoberfests, from what i hear their pilsner is quite good but I dont drink pilsners often.

Then theres the brooklyn monster which is a barleywine and is around 12%:eek

Another one to watch out for is Sam Adams chocolate bock :drool

I think that the Brooklyn Black Chocolate Stout is only available in kegs. I got the last 2 5 gallon barrels that my distributor had. Come over and try it this Thursday.

Well, that's good to know. I will give the blue label a whirl. It really is good beer.
