The cans quickly sold out, but there’s still a chance to find some.

“Who Dey! This is an exciting time for Cincinnati and the fervor for these cans of beer is insane! This is what we felt like was the fairest way to get our allotment in to as many Bengals fans hands as possible. We have even made our closest friends and family get in line with everyone else. Please keep all that in mind before hitting our comment section and if our webstore goes down tomorrow please send thoughts and prayers.”

According to Moerlein Lager House, they expect the trucks to drop off the Hu-Dey Tuesday night and have the cans available sometime Wednesday.

They said customers will be able to take them home – but there will be a limit.

Hyundai and Kia Fire Warning

They are telling owners of almost 500,000 cars and SUVs in the United States to park outside and away from buildings due to a possible defect that can cause the vehicles to spontaneously catch fire even when not running.

Affected are certain Kia Sportage SUVs from 2014 through 2016, and the 2016 through 2018 K900 sedan. Recalled Hyundais include certain 2016 through 2018 Santa Fe SUVs, 2017 and 2018 Santa Fe Sports, the 2019 Santa Fe XL and 2014 and 2015 Tucson SUVs.

The automakers say they have 11 reports of fires in the U.S. but no injuries.

Documents posted Tuesday by U.S. safety regulators say owners should park the vehicles outside and away from structures until repairs are made.

Dealers will replace a fuse. In addition, Hyundai dealers will inspect the control modules and replace them if needed. Hyundai will mail notification letters starting April 5, and Kia will send them March 31.

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration says owners can go and enter their 17-digit vehicle identification number to see if their automobile is being recalled.
