I didn't see any Nugget Nector at Premier on Monday (maybe more was in back though?). I bought it at Village Beer (had it for growlers and bottles), plus saw a couple 6 packs at Wegman's on Alberta.

Picked up Hoptimum at Premier. Tried it last night and loved it.

Bizarre. I try to take any beer on its merits and can generally come to terms with almost every single one. Then I am a red wine guy! I love tannins and dryness and acidity etc etc... I can switch gears right over to the very rich white 'dessert' wines as well. Good to develop range instead of judging whatever you don't immediately like a 'mess'.

Speaking of Troeggs, you could always call ahead to various Consumers stores. There are many. Some are not great.

Was there too on Saturday. One of the worse selections of Wegman's I've seen so far.

Tons of Nugget Nectar in at Premier again.

Last case of Hoptimum on the shelves as well.

Plenty to go around as I saw both at the Elmwood Consumers too.
(Not really on topic but there was a few Mikkeller Beer Geek Brunch Weasel there too, never came across one of those before.

Just had the Hoptimum and damn it was good. Definitely was worth the trip to Buffalo.
I don’t care what the U.N. says, I don’t recognize countries that don’t produce beer.
