I have some bombers of Double Jack that are less that a month old.
where did you find them?

i've recently seen DJ on the shelves at Bier Station, Gomers, and Hy Vee that was bottled in AUGUST. good luck selling that shit.

They were probably sent with the last mo shipment expecting quicker approval. It's going to get better guys, I just can't wait for the FW brewed Heavy Lifting!!!

Firestone Walker is with different distributors in Kansas and Missouri. They wouldn't ship beer to Major Brands on the Missouri side to be distributed by Central States on the Kansas side.
