This was available on-line only, marking my first experience if you don't count the limited edition Utopias. My quibble has been that regularly you are required to buy six or twelve of a beer that is expensive to begin with. Luckily this was available as a single unit and I was able to fluff my order beyond the free shipping minimum with little fuss.
