No surprise, there are many great breweries I struggle to understand why they still sell in MO or KS...

I would not be surprised is others follow suit.

Cheers

I will certainly miss them, but speaking for myself, they lost a ton of my beer dollars when they stopped brewing the Double Stout, Le Freak, Hop Head Red and Barleywine. I also haven't seen any Rayon Vert or Palate Wrecker in years. Those beers were the main reasons I liked Green Flash so much. West Coast IPA will also be missed, but only a little. Plenty of other IPAs around to take its place, that's for sure.

Sucks but no surprise. Higher than average 6 pack price for the IPA. Only thing we could get the past year and a half or so was West Coast, Soul Style which I consistently would have to send back due to dates, and Passion Fruit Kicker. Now, does this mean that Alpine is going away with them? Haven't heard.

Rayon Vert could make my list of Desert Island Beers. So good every time. Only thing close I could find was Lukas MO had the Cellar 3 series knock off of it last year.
