Where can I find Blue Point beer?

I'm looking to buy some Blue Point Brewing Co. beer before next weekend. Anyone know who SD insells it? The closer to UTC area the better. Bevmo was my first guess, but it's not listed in their online catalog.

  1. i don't believe that blue point beers are currently distributed on the west coast.

    1. If you are referring to the Blue Point in Long Island, you will have to have it shipped. I have had beer shipped from Oak Tree Buy Rite in NJ before. If you really need it by the weekend, call and ask if they can get it shipped tomorrow.

        Thanks SChen and JRSD. I didn't realize Blue Point had no West Coast distribution. Was just looking for something to pair well with the Mets game for next weekend (i.e. from Mets territory). Hopefully I can find some Brooklyn Brewery beer instead...

          I am a huge Mets fan and have a bunch of NY beers that would be appropriate for the game. If you email me at the address on my profile, or contact me through the Yahoo Chow groups I can help you out.

          I was drinking the Blue Point Toasted Lager from the Seafood Stand at Citi Field opening weekend!

      2. Talk to the manager at BevMo as BevMo can typically special order most beers.

          only if the brewery has legal distribution in this area, due to the arcane three tier laws.

          Mayache - Brooklyn Brewery is also not distributed in Souther California unfortunately.

            That's too bad about Brooklyn, I could have sworn I've seen them around at points.

            JRSD, thanks for the really nice offer!
