Dropped in at Whole Foods and Sam's today. Noticed a couple remarkable offerings just new on the shelves: Dogfish 120 Minute IPA and especially, North Coast Brewing is back in Chicago after a one year hiatus.
The 4-pack of North Coast Old Rasputin Imperial Stout is a real sight for sore eyes, one of my all-time favorite "benchmark" stouts. Only saw the North Coast at Sams, did not see it at Whole Foods or, strangely enough, at Binny's on Grand earlier in the day.
If you're looking for an awesome "heads up" Imperial Stout tasting, try: Old Rasputin vs. Victory Storm King vs. Arcadia Imperial.
