Fresh Founders and Stone beers...

Yesterday we got in fresh shipments from Stone and Founders -- I took just a quick date check and everything looks to have been bottled between May 5-May 9 from both breweries.   So nice and fresh.

Founders Centennial IPA, Reds Rye and Pale ale are in stock at Forsyth.

In stock now
Stone Oak Aged Arrogant Bastard
Stone Ruination 6pks
Stone Levitation 6pks
Stone Pale Ale 6pks
Stone IPA 22oz
So this batch is much fresh than the first Stone batch.  Most of the beers are about a week old now, the first batch was a month old when it arrived.   The 22oz bottles if IPA do not have the St. Louis back label yet.   Not sure why 6 packs of IPA did not show up?
