21st Amendment Marooned on Hog Island Oyster Stout

Supporter Post:

France 44 returns to BeerPulse after a three-week hiatus. Let’s square this away before we go any further though…whatever order you place isn’t guaranteed to arrive for Christmas (if that is what you are hoping for). With that said…

Looking for last-minute 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.

Schells Chimney Sweep Black LagerDid the statement from Schell’s Brewery about not being a “craft brewer” resonate with you? Want to show them some support or try their beers (or kill two birds with one stone)? Since the brewery can’t ship directly to customers, buying their beers fresh from a Minnesota-based retailer is the next best thing. Try their newest release, Chimney Sweep, or one (or more) of the other sixteen offerings.

Info on shipping/ordering can be found at the bottom of the post.

Shipping Tips:

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.
