    Picked up an Oak Horizontal from Binny's yesterday for either $14.99 or $15.99. Old Horizontal was one of the first beers that got me into barleywines so I'm hoping I enjoy this one as much or more.

    Our esteemed Bell's distro here in McHenry County uh, for whatever reason, is not getting Black Note. I hope that's wrong info I got. We're just two blocks from the Kane County line. #accident #of #geography.

    Anyway, how's my Twitter feed working for you?

    Bell's Hopslam just waddled in the door. 30 cases is all; one 6 pack per customer. See Customer Service Desk or Chris. That is all. Cheers!

    I wish the skokie/Niles/des plaines binnys were better. They are closer to home, but Algonquin is close to work. Good thread

    It's great to have instant info! I popped in yesterday for a few things that I saw you mention on Twitter.

    Agreed, the twitter feed is fantastic. My wallet disagrees with me though.

    Tomorrow I am back in store after being away for three days. I'll tweet what's new and what's left, that I might have missed by my second hand reporting.
  9. Quick question, did I miss BA bigfoot or has it not made it out to this area yet?
  10. beergurujr

    beergurujr Savant (350) Illinois Oct 27, 2003

    No info on BA Bigfoot dude. I doubt that will be out this way.
  11. beergurujr

    beergurujr Savant (350) Illinois Oct 27, 2003

    I'm off today, but there may be some new stuff coming in. I'll check with the store to see what's new then tweet it.

    Any Hopslam left in Algonquin?
  13. beergurujr

    beergurujr Savant (350) Illinois Oct 27, 2003

    Still a few six packs.
  14. beergurujr

    beergurujr Savant (350) Illinois Oct 27, 2003

    Was off today, but there were supposed to be some new stuff this week. New Sam Adams, maybe some new New Holland.

    In better news, we now are stocking kegs from a new keg-only local brewery- Church Street Brewing, of west suburban Itasca. All well made, clean beers. An 80 IBU IPA, a scottish ale, and a pale lager.

    beergurujr Savant (350) Illinois Oct 27, 2003

    Supposedly one case coming tomorrow. One bottle per customer.
  24. Thanks for staying on top of things for the suburbanites. Good stuff.

    Anybody check out the DFH 75 min? Know how many they got and how much they are?

    Are you guys absolutely not getting any Central Waters BBBW and/or Peruvian Morning? Or is it just not in yet?

    Yes it's there- was tweeted on 16 January.

    Thanks beer guy. I looked again and found the tweet. I live halfway between Rockford and Iowa. Will be coming to Rosemont for the motorcycle show on 2/8. Will stop by afterwards. Hope there is plenty left. (And I'll visit the humidor for a few sticks).
