I DIDN’T SEE ANY DISTRIBUTION IN (INSERT STATE HERE), CAN YOU SHIP SOME BEER TO ME?

Unfortunately we’re not allowed to ship our beers.

HOW DO I KNOW WHEN MY BEER WAS PACKAGED?

We date code every can and 12-pack with the date it was packaged. Flip the can upside down and turn a 12 pack around to the side to check the date inkjetted in black. We recommend our beers be enjoyed within 120 days of packaging to ensure the experience our brewers intend.

WHAT’S THE SHELF-LIFE OF YOUR BEER?

All our beer is best enjoyed as fresh as possible. Hop flavor and aroma, for example, gradually fades over time and the experience is altered as a result. That’s why we code our beers with the date they were packaged. As a rule, we have a 120 day shelf-life policy that we use with our retailers to ensure only the freshest product is stocked and available.
