i've never seen it over here. i've actually never had it from a bottle, only on tap. it's in many of the bars in Detroit. not even sure how common it is outside of the Michigan area to be honest. ah, fond memories of this place now: http://www.grandtrunkpub.com/gallery/

sorry, i've derailed your thread. But people, try a version of this recipe. so simple, and yet.....

Centennial is a brilliant hop Mike - you might love it. Since this thread got started I never got around to making this recipe, but I've been using Centennial and it is great stuff.

If I could only have one hop, it would probably be Centennial.
