    leinie is much more seasonal with their seasonal line, whereas micros and sam adams tend to let their lines run into each other, the popularity of leinie's seasonals means waiting times in between seasons...such as the lull between oktoberfest and apple spice. can't wait for more regionalized distribution of big butt dopplebock in the spring.

    A guy who I work with (who is originally from the Chicago area) was lamenting to me the other day about the non-existance of Leinie's in this area. I found there is a distributor just south of Baltimore. Do these distributors outside of the core areas tend to carry the seasonal stuff? Or the regular stuff? or both?

    they'd probably just carry the regular, the red. leinie is a very regional product.

    They say that 90% of their sales come from the states that border Wisconsin. I believe that Miller distributes for them.

    Found some.
    Not quite sure what to think. There's the apple taste, but it isn't strong. I think it's one of those that I'll have to try a few times.
