I had no idea they were considered rare. they show up from time to time in
the grocery stores here in Central Ohio, but only if the store manager is a
beer drinker. There's also Beverage Source one town over, an good place to
find excellent beers from other parts. They have some of the Summit Ales,
but I don't recall ever seeing the Porter. I'll take a look.
Worst case, my brother-in-law is going up to Northern Minnesota next week
for vacation. He has orders to bring back a few six-packs of various Summit
brews, just in case I can't find the Porter here.

My wife's family is *all* in RI. We owned a house there up until about a
year ago - down in the Buttonwoods section of Warwick. We're heading back
to visit and take a short vacation.
