France 44 is back with another post after a busy Thanksgiving week for the shop. Last week’s post featured 25 new beers in the store and this week’s post features another dozen. All available to order online. Craft beer drinkers look forward to the winter with good reason….
Looking for gift ideas? You can get Surly Furious packaged up with a number of Minnesota craft breweries as part of a new Minnesota Craft Beer Gift Basket.
And if you’re looking to try Stone 12.12.12 Vertical Epic Ale (when it’s released next week) with last year’s vintage (11.11.11), the store has some in stock.
Info on shipping/ordering can be found at the bottom of the post.

Here is a link to the Shipping Policy and list of states to which France 44 can ship beer.
Fill up your cart and then click on “My Cart” in the upper right corner. On the next screen (order screen), punch in your zip code in the Destination Zip Code input field in the lower right part of the order screen and hit enter on the keyboard. It will then calculate your shipping (without having to sign up or enter a credit card).
The optimal order where shipping cost is most efficient is 24 beers (or 48 or multiples of 24 from there). If you order a 25th beer, they have to add a second box which is an extra charge.
No international shipping.
