Picked up a bottle (coffee) from Mega. They had one left around 2:00.
I think I've given up hope on grabbin this one. I'm sure it'll pop up here in GR soon but I don't know if ill b able to nab it.
I sure hope to find some in GR/Holland soon. I'm positive my local bottle shop hates that I'm calling every few days.
Allegedly, that's how much Drakes had that lasted maybe 1 hour...
Little Caesars in Bay City got 2 cases of Cherry Rye. No Coffee yet.
i have 2 reserved that im picking up tomorrow
Did they make you purchase a Hot & Ready to get on the list?
yeah and a 2 liter that cost $2.19
And i just so happen to be in bay city for a couple days. Guess i will grab a beer and a pizza.
Drakes in kzoo also got a case of madam rose if I am not mistaken. Cherry is certainly looking to not be this time around.
I was told Kent Beverage did not get any of this. Take that info as you will, but this came from an owner, told to him by his rep at Kent.
this is true, at least for now.
Joe... Grab one for me! Please?!
A pizza? Pepperoni OK?
Pepperoni, bacon and pineapple.
The Eagle has landed in Lansing. A surrogate just picked up the bottle of coffee I had on order at Big Ten Oades, and while she was there, she cleaned the store out of its remaining base Bourbon County Stout
Damn if their other prices are any indication I bet they charged 30 for the coffee and 10 per bottle of normal.
any east side sightings ?? oakland or macomb area ?
I bought the regular BCBS at Oades Big Ten in Lansing a couple weeks ago, $25/4 pack, so not bad.
Just bought a Coffee from Country Acres in South Lyon, $20. They had four.
I'm hearing nothing until the new year, but who knows.
Not sure why the Grand Rapids area gets things so much later than surrounding areas... Kalamazoo had Coffee like 2 weeks ago, and no sightings in GR? You Kalamazoo people are so spoiled...
I talked to someone at siciliano's yesterday and they said that when the distribution routes/allotments/something like that were wrote up that G.R. was a blip on the radar. He eluded to the fact that they haven't changed and that we will generally see things later then most because of this.
I was at Siciliano's yesterday as well and was told to expect the variants about 6 weeks after the Chicago release, supposedly the same schedule as regular BCBS. Seems like it should hit here any day now. Didn't regular BCBS hit Kzoo before GR as well?
Just about everything hit K-Zoo first... When 2012 Stone IRS hit, Siciliano's kept saying: "Any day now"... It never hit till like 6 months later! Ha ha! So who knows I guess...
2 cases Coffee, 1 case Cherry. Boom.
The Great White North.
I wouldn't be able to say undoubtedly yes or no, but that sounds right because I remember watching the trading forum go nuts with the Chicago release and taking over a month after for the first to arrive in GR.
The eagle has landed in West Michigan:
Picked these guys up at Riverside Liquors on Northland Drive just south of West River Drive in Grand Rapids. They got three bottles of each, and now they have two of each. $24.99/bottle. In talking with Roger at Riverside, he said that they were one of the first to get their allocation. He also said that West Michigan only received 7 cases for the whole area (I'm honestly not sure if he meant 7 cases of each or 7 altogether).
I am a happy man.
....and Riverside just posted on their Facebook that they're out.
But, keep your eyes peeled for this to hit other stores very soon.
No need to rush there. My mule (wife) just left and the remaining are spoken for. Drats!
Good luck Grand Rapids BA's....your gonna need it!
If your 7 case theory if right....the Kalamazoo area got 5 of them....baahaahaa!
Any idea if they will continue shipping the rest of the night?
Kzoo is distributed through a different distributor. GR and lakeshore distributor got 7 cases of each plus big john so I'm told. Probably will ship out to the stores through next week.
I am aware of the different distributers in different areas....I was just going off from the comment of "West Michigan only received 7 cases in the whole area".
Sorry for the confusion
