Anyone have any insight into how beer distribution works? I’ll never understand why the pumpkin/Octoberfest beers ship as early as July but become difficult to find in October. And I’m starting to see fucking Christmas beers already. Why do they do it this way for?

I have no idea buts it’s stupid. If there’s an exact beer your looking for try Untappd to locate it

I’ve never had much luck with that. I’m looking for pumking which is probably my one and only seasonal beer I really like. I got burned last year thinking I was going to hold off buying much til October then it was nowhere to be found. I checked a couple Krogers today and didn’t see any after seeing it all through September. It’s like October hits and they’re “oh shit it’s October better stop distributing our pumpkin beers!”

I haven’t. If your interested though I can add you to a couple Facebook groups where people trade/sell the more popular breweries like OtherHalf, Treehouse, and Monkish. There are usually NE IPAs, Sours, and Stouts available. It gets expensive as standard cost is cost + $2.50 a can + shipping but it evens out about the same as drinking good beer at a bar.
