Back in the USSR

I knew Portlanders were left-leaning types, but Widmer has gone flat out Commie on us! Their once yearly series changes in style (remember W'10, Pitch Black IPA?) annually, and this year Widmer has gone big with W'11 KGB Russian Imperial Stout. The 9.3% beer is kind of an anomaly when it comes to packaging trends these days, as it is rare to see high-alcohol Imperial Stouts sold in six-packs like this one is. Not only that, but we will see KGB in 12-packs as well. As long as we don't see Soviets parachuting from the sky ala Red Dawn, I am happy. And Widmer's reasonable price point should leave you feeling happy as well; don't expect to pay over nine bucks for a six-pack of this big bear of a beer.

Where can I get it?

I ended up getting a 6'r at Sunflower for $6.99!

Sorry Mark, did not see your question till now. Like Ryan said, Sunflower had that great sale of a 9.3% six-pack for $6.99, and it is in all liquor stores now.
