ISO top-rated Russian Imperial Stout in northern DE
- CindyJ Jul 31, 2012 08:08 AM
My first thought is Total Wine in Claymont, but I'm wondering if there might be other stores that specialize in craft beers that might be likely to carry some of the top-rated Russian Imperial Stouts. I bought a really fine RIS made by the Stone Brewing Company at Total Wine a couple of months back. I'd really love to find one of Three Floyds products or Kate the Great from the Portsmouth Brewery. Any suggestions? Thanks!
Unfortunately, I'm pretty sure the flagship RIS's from both Portsmouth Brewery (Kate) and Three Floyds (Dark Lord) are available only at the brewery, and they usually sell out in one day.
Also, Portsmouth Brewery to my knowledge doesn't have a distributor at least outside of N.H. (which their website seems to confirm), and Three Floyds distribution doesn't seem to come close to Delaware either, according to RateBeer: California, Illinois, Indiana, Kentucky, Massachusetts, Ohio, Wisconsin . . . and Denmark (go figure).
