    I completely agree. There are many alternatives to Sicilianos in the GR area. Luckily I work pretty close to them, so when they post a FB announcement, I can quickly leave work and grab a bottle or two. The thing that irks me is that when you go there, they are very cryptic, even when they have bottles. When FMB came out, they had a 2 bottle limit, and when I got there I was lucky enough to get "the last two bottles", as they pulled them from under the counter. I asked if they were going to get anymore and they were very evasive in how they answered, as if they had 12 more cases under the counter. I completely get the game, keep the public wanting more. That's why I posted what they told me about BCBS, just to see if others got the same response.

    Cheers

    If the game is right, I might be able to look the other way... :rolleyes:

    So today is the start of Founders' self-proclaimed Stout Season.

    stoutseason.com

    Anybody else think that a deal was made to hold off on releasing BCBS so that it doesn't steal Founders' thunder?

    I would say this is the same situation with Plum Market in Ann Arbor. Make better progress at other stores in the area..

    He was offering tickets to the Big House, not "The Woodshed" in East Lansing:)

    They switched venues for comedy when "The Woodshed" got a new manager, i think his name is Mark. They've been hosting these great 3 hour comedy shows at the Big House on Saturdays for a few years. ;)

    Let's be honest: I'm not gonna win in any dick measurement competition. I would however absolutely love a 4 pack. That's all I seek.

    My girlfriend was able to secure 2 bottles in Chicago for me. Any additional I score from now on are just a bonus. From what I hear in a store I frequent fairly regularly. It will be in stores next week sometime in the SE Detroit area.

    I just got the last glass of fresh BCBS at the Berkley Front tonight. They put it on last Wednesday and can't believe it lasted this long.

    I thought it was funny that they called it Goose Island Bourbon Stout on their FB page. It's like they didn't even know what they had. I was going to go on Saturday after the Fall Equinox, but the place doesn't open until 3 PM and I couldn't hang around that long.

    Whew...glad I got their last night. I noticed when he poured mine that it was getting pretty fizzy. I knew it wouldn't be long.
