"Early" doesn't really apply to a beer due to be released more than five weeks ago. Seasonal or limited release stuff frequently does make it to store shelves before a scheduled release date for a myriad of reasons I won't go in to here...but even those shipments are tracked. If you're suggesting that stuff makes it's way out of the warehouse without the folks who administer shipping from that warehouse knowing about it then you do indeed have some interesting information. Tell me more.
