Shape of Hops to Come Release October 15th


Alright, it’s that time again.

First off, apologies for not getting this out sooner. Between GABF and an unusually hectic schedule, this release as well as it’s announcement took a backseat to a few more pressing things. Second, please note that this update/post contains all the information we have at the moment regarding brewery and distribution shipments.

Brewery Availability

  • 160 cases will be available at the brewery this coming Saturday, October 15th at 10 AM. There is a one case limit. 4-Packs are $13/each and cases are $62/each. This is NOT the last brewery release of this beer for 2016.
  • There will be two more releases of The Shape of Hops to come at the brewery this year, one in November, and one in December.  Both will be roughly 200 cases each release.

Distribution Availability

  • 1000 cases are being shipped to our Southeastern PA wholesaler, Bella Vista, tomorrow, and those will more than likely start to find their way into the market next week.
  • 600 cases are being shipped to our New Jersey wholesaler, Hunterdon, next Wednesday, October 19th and will more than likely start to find their way into the market the following week.
  • Roughly 120 to 150 cases (total, not each) will be shipped to our wholesalers in Pittsburgh, Central Pennsylvania, and Northeast Pennsylvania. We do not have an exact date for those shipments, but these will go out within the next 10 days.
  • Draft kegs will also be shipped to all territories listed above for this shipment. Quantities vary by wholesaler and are usually allocated prior to shipment.
  • This is the last distribution shipment of this beer in 2016. No more will be sent out until 2017.

Keep an eye out for our posts on social media regarding case quantities remaining at the brewery. We’ll post throughout the weekend giving you a status update as to how many cases are left. Also, please note, if there are cases available, there are 4-packs available as well. You would think that’s almost obvious, but we get a lot of people asking about 4-packs when we say “X amount of cases remain” on social media. If there are cases, there are 4-packs.

That should cover it. Hope to see you Saturday!
