Speculate all you want in the comments below.
i mean, if this does not scream “gunna happen”
i dont know what does. we should find out where they are going next and ambush them with a huge meet and greet. show em who we are.
Please, please, please bring the CDA with you!
Just curious, when was this left?
Deschutes has been scouting the midwest for new states to distribute in. Two reps were at HandleBar on Wednesday and said they were very impressed by STL. Nothing official, but it sounds promising.
derek, that was left yesterday i believe at ITAP.
Deschutes has decent beer. I would like to see St. Louis continue to support its local beers first and foremost though. How much more can the local market handle?
i doubt the local will have any issues with out of state stuff.
Anyone know if they tend to expand with their six packs, or just the specialty stuff? I’d love to have Black Butte and Obsidian on the shelves.
Dave, I’d much rather see the specials that more “daily” beer. There can be only so many pales.
I really doubt St. Louis is going to a problem with too much supply of craft beers (out of state vs local). The consumption in this town never ceases to amaze me. =)
To each their own, but I could use an amazing Porter (we’ve got Bell’s and Cutthroat, but a little more variety would be appreciated for this porter lover) and an outstanding Stout (we have K’zoo and . . . ) in six packs at decent prices more than I could use more $$ bombers. Not saying I wouldn’t like to try things like the Dissident and Abyss, but bottles like those are a small fraction of what I buy.
More excited about the possibility of seeing Deschutes here in Missouri than Stone. Dissident, Abyss, Mirror Mirror and Red Chair make me a very happy, albeit it poorer, beer drinker.
I was just in Portland for the first time two weeks ago (I know Deschutes is in Bend) and would love for them to start distributing in St. Louis! I believe their Pale Ale far better than the local brewers in Missouri. Outside of contacting Deschutes directly to start distributing in St. Louis, are there any other efforts to try and get them here taking place?
Having been to their brewpub in Bend I can say I’d be pretty excited by anything they bring to town. I sampled about 12-14 beers there and everything ranged between solid and spectacular and most of that was the regular lineup.
Dave–I’d like to see Kona Pipeline Porter in town!!!!!
I know a gal that just took a job with Deschutes as a rep…in Missouri.
