    I bought 3 cases this week --
    Last year it was sold out by 2nd week in December --
    I was SO PISSED !,,,,,,decided I'd load up early this year.

    BTW
    Magic Hat ---- Heart Of Darkness -- rivals it.
    But a distributor told me - Heart Of Darkness might not make it back this winter.

    I'm waiting for my Cold Mountain to be released!

    (plus we brewed a bock that should be ready to drink in January - we'll be in Germany the first couple weeks of December, drinking whatever we can!)

    Is this any good? I never had it before.. Personally, I'm not fond of the winter seasonal ales that the breweries put out...

    I bought Celebration last week for husband but don't remember what I paid.....but $10.99 for a 12 pack of anything sounds amazing. It's rare to find good beers at less than $1/bottle - even at Costco! (and my Costco has a pretty good selection- including some NC breweries!)

    Best price for 12 pak "Celebration" -
    around here, is $15.99 sale.
    The Anchor Xmas is about $50 a case.

    And if you haven't tried it - buy a bottle.

    Yeah the 10.99 surprised me too. I saw a couple 6 packs at 8.99 and had them in my hand and happened to see the 12 packs...... Kind of a no brained huh? They only had the 2.

    We head over the border to Seabrook NH for our beer. Much cheaper and no deposit.

    Ah, NH :) I remember my mom and I stopping to stock up on a road trip - we were living in Utah at the time. So it wasn't just the price but the selection....(I grew up in CT and used to go to camp in Maine so my mom would stop on those road trips too - but I had to stay in the car)
