Firestone Walker coming to Kansas!

Read this a week or so ago but have yet to see it mentioned on here. Apologies if I missed it. So excited for them to finally be here!

This really doesn't seem right at all, but somehow I am not very excited about this. The reason is, when visiting MO, I see plenty of Firestone stuff all over the place, but I don't buy it because its pretty much always months out of date. So, I guess at first I am fairly sure the product will be fresh for the launch, but I am pessimistic about being able to locate fresh FW stuff at any later date. Again, this really doesn't seem like the right attitude, but I guess I am not sure why it would be any different on this side of the state line.

They actively pull the product now & replace the old product, they found a few loose packs in the back that were dated, then brought new ones for us.

I agree on the age of some their products. Unfortunately, that can be said for many time sensitive beers. What I think is great about FW coming to Kansas is getting them on draft.

They do get delivered out of date fairly regularly. I was told they just got a truck with fresh product last week and easy jack was deliveried with November dates.

It's only going to get better too, hopefully since they are now affiliated more people will buy their beer, we become one of their top markets & get a larger slice of the limited releases. Maybe pull some from AZ or the PNW.

Very excited for the Lupulis Distortion series, that's going to be an ever changing go-to.

I have some bombers of Double Jack that are less that a month old.
