Love your avatar....just sayin!
well, thanks! me too (that's why i picked it) haha. the "wink" is much better than the "duckface".
Famous Market in White Lake has a few cases. Think they are selling single bottles only though.
I'd hit it
Al this talk about Dragon's Milk makes me want to go get one while I wait patiently for BCS.
I ran into a Kent Beverage rep last night and she said they have received it, but it was still undecided how exactly it would be distributed. Unfortunately, she didn't know how much they received.
Yeah, they wanted $31 for a 4 pack.
Haha, I thought they were referring to the beer manager at the West Bloomfield Plum Market.
Just talked to ABC food wine and spirits in GR and they said it would be in next week.
Apparently they only had 3 4packs left around 5:30 when my sis stopped in to grab one for her bf.
I heard that there will be more in Kalamazoo today. I know of at least two places that are getting more (sorry to bring up a sore subject) most likely today. Mega-Bev got an inital load that sold out in an hour, and another 10 cases yesterday. One other place that I usually choose not to patronize for their poor handling of other beer releases (KBS) and over inflated prices should get their initial 5+ cases today also. One of the places getting more in Kzoo was selling it for $21/4 pack and the other was $24.
Mega-bev also has 5 more cases coming at an undetermined date.
EDIT: Sorry just read that it sounds kind of bad, I really do not know when they will be getting the final 5 cases, my guess would be next tuesday though as they get west side on tuesday around 11-noon.
Tiffany's in Kalamazoo just called me. They have some. Didn't say how much they got in. $22-4pk
Fitzgeralds in Eagle River will be tapping a 1/6th barrel of 2012 at noon this Friday... Come amd get it ya'll.
You need to start a new thread called "Michigan - the part no one will ever visit - BCBS Sightings." Then, you could post everyday about how it's just sitting on the shelves waiting for us...if we make the 10+ hour drive.
Just grabbed a 4 pack from Drake Party Store in Kzoo for 25$ out the door. Their facebook said they got 10 cases earlier today and when I went they had 2 and a half cases left on the floor, but may have more in back. Also, limit 1 4pack per person which kinda sucks.
I'm in SE Oakland Co. and have an extra 4pk I'd like to trade. I put up a post in the ISO:FT forum.
One visit is all you need, and you will be hooked...
I hate my boss anyway, so I see no reason why we shouldn't just steal his small airplane. Can you fly?
If you like Dragons Milk be sure to have a change of pants nearby when you have your first taste of BCBS.
I can wing it...see what I did there?
I think Pilgrims Dole is more bourbon forward than Dragons Milk, as they solely use Bourbon Barrels, rather than a mix of bourbon and whiskey barrels as they do for Dragons Milk.
Any place near Gibraltar I can pick some up?
Thank you!!! Been saying that for a while now.
I think Pilgrims Dole is by far my favorite beer from New Holland. (Not that this statement has anything to do with BCBS in Michigan)
How in the world did this thread turn into a discussion about New Holland, what a joke of a brewery...imo of course.
Let's get back to talking about when GR is actually going to see some bcbs. While I thought today, now I am hearing next week. Anyone else?
Agreed. I have never tried a new holland beer I've been enamored with, but they do have a new wet hopped ipa out now that's evidently pretty good.
Martha's Vineyard said next week for sure.
don't tell anyone
What is the highest price you guys are seeing this at ? There is a place in Troy gouging at $37 out the door. Really annoying. The funny thing is they had a list of people they were holding 4 packs for and a friend of mine kept getting calls telling him people had cancelled and they had extra 4 packs he could buy.
Don't worry, they won't sell it to the public anyway.
Yeah when they got kbs in they didn't even have it out. You had to ask and they would bring you your limit (which was a bottle) wrapped in a brown paper bag. Sketchy i tell ya.
I ran into another Kent Bev rep yesterday. The distributor has the beer in their warehouse, but have yet to distribute it. As far as she knew, they are planning how exactly to distribute it in terms of quantities to each location.
Woo! Just got a call from the store saying my 4-pack was ready! Unfortunately I'm at work and have to wait until 5pm to pick it up, and now I'll be craving it the rest of the day...
Any suggestions as far as its best pairings? How about aging it? Since I have 4 bottle, I might let two of them sit for a while.
The bottle doesn't lie.
When you get the bottles you will see they say "Ages well for up to 5 years". They bottle doesn't lie. It does age well for that long. Drink two and save 2 to drink along side future vintages.
Excellent, thanks! Maybe I will age one for a year or two, and another for three or four. It will be hard not to drink them for that long, though! Haha
Well, I'm from Southgate but the store is in Wyandotte. Discount Drinks, etc. They had a waiting list going on, I called less than a week ago and put my name on the list.
This. I've lost all respect for Martha's. If you have your bottles out, that means for sale. Not, "we're pretentious assholes who love to screw with people". Avoid, avoid, avoid.
Wait, what ? What are they doing over there ?
Left bottles of limited beers on the counter near the register then wouldn't sell to me and some other things.
