I was thinking that they could ship to 2 different places at the same time. Same carrier could be cheaper? I don't know much about that side of things.

Speaking only from my experience at Boulevard, it's not common for different distributors to pool a load from a brewery.

I'd contact the brewery.

I was thinking that the particular batch some was intended for the kc market, but when it was packaged it made it here to the respective distributer. More recently when there Crane beers came to Kansas, 6-7 weeks later when available in MO, same dates. Just a consistent trend that I've noticed between brewing the beer & getting it to the shelf.

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.
Sounds like a road trip, JeremyDanner I available to ride shotgun.
