the death of OP?

Wife tells me that the folks at total wine said Old Peculier was no longer in print. she attempted to console me by suggesting that perhaps it was just total wine that was no longer receiving it. someone tell me it's still available someplace!

  1. I searched my local store, and they didn't have it on the shelf. I will check other places as well and let you know.

    Speaking of beer, J and I engaged in the hobby of our founding fathers this weekend : homebrewing!

  2. I just got back from a trip to North Yorkshire, including a brewery tour of the Theakston brewery in Masham. Old P is definitely still alive and well (and quite good when had from cask at a local pub in the area, too). Not sure why Total Wine was having problems, but I made sure to bring a few bottles home in my checked luggage. (No breakage or leakage, luckily.)

  3. A thought occurred to me-- when I was in Masham, I noticed that the Theakston family had recently repurchased the brewery from Scottish and Newcastle. It wouldn't totally surprise me if that interrupted their supply chain to the US or to Total Wine.
