Noticed California gets their beer now, fresh cans all over. When are we going to be getting these? Is our market that bad?

I heard rumors about Hy-Vee having some serious pull into bringing them into our market, but we saw how that worked out with Surley :roll:

Hy-Vee should Private Label them already. When I worked at Mike's I talked to several awesome small batch brewery owners who would have loved to be brought into an area small, but the shop owners didn't want to pull the trigger. Killer breweries too. Hy-Vee could corner the local beer market if they knew how.

Would also be cool to see TG give a small struggling craft distributer in KC or STL to handle TG and help them peddle their Saugatuck beers.

TG would be cool add... however you see most cooler door full at this point and things shelf turd'ing that should be selling somewhat, most with a layer of protective dust. (Think it pricing, stale product line and the community being a bunch of tickers.) Which is why I enjoy buying singles of seasonal beers... buy 2 or 3 (Bells Expedition, then throw in a couple regular beers for a expensive mixed 6... but I got Hop Stoopid, Two Hearted, Founders... things other wise we pass on for what new.)

*These are just generalization and observations of mine. Going into local store around town. Doesn't help when store get month old IPA's... while others get them 2 weeks prior.

So did they just decide against Missouri all together or infinite wait? Never heard what exactly happened.

From what I hear, they couldn't come to terms on a contract with their distributor.

MB probably doesn't want to add more to compete with their products that they have to get premium shelf space for.

Major Brands apparently had a deal for TG to come to MO according to an employee in STL, KC will get distro not just STL, any word on when?

I saw somewhere (maybe it was the KC FB group?) that the deal with Major Brands fell through. TG stated on their twitter a few days ago that they have been trying to add MO but had not yet been able to get it done. As you'd expect, several KC distributors responded that they'd love to work with them....
