Normally I’d save this info for Friday, but I thought I’d give you guys a quick update:

  • Chris at Randall’s Wine & Spirits in Fairview Heights has just received Dogfish Head 120 Minute IPA in stock. This IPA has 120 IBUs, 21% ABV and 450 calories per 12 oz serving. Chris let me know that the amount that came to Southern Illinois is extremely limited, so pick this one up ASAP.
