    Man I wish I was rich! Ended up with 2 coffees, 1 cherry that I sold to another BA, and a 4 pack of blacknote

    I'm in the same boat. The only thing that'll make me hunt down a beer before KBS is if BBPt5 hits anywhere near here. I _might_ also hunt down regular Pt5, but for now, I'm pretty satisfied with the beers I have.

    I thought BBPt5 was brewery release only. Do they ever distribute it?

    I thought I heard last year that they did. Could be totally making that up, though. I'm probably mistaking bottles that I've seen purchased from the brewery as bottles in distribution.

    I had to ensure my wife of the same thing as I walked out the door last night to walk to the local store up the road to pick up my 4 pack of black note. Though I have one more in between now and KBS, I have to make sure I get a decent amount of Plead the 5th.

    Kegs are distro'd for sure, but I don't think they've ever sent bottles out, and never really have any need.

    Are kegs distro'd and available for retail purchase, or just available for bars? I know they have kegs for tap takeover events all the time but I've never seen a store that has kegs of BBPt5 for sale on a retail level.

    Where? I'm coming to Kzoo for a beer week event tonight; I'd like to try this beer.

    Just a heads up for GR folk, I heard a rumor that BCBS is on tap at the electric cheetah right now, I haven't checked personally but my buddy is pretty solid when it comes to this stuff.

    I made a thread about this on Monday. It's where I work.

    PS... it's still there and NO ONE is getting it. Still plenty left. $8 for a 10 oz. pour.

    Just thought I'd pass this along for those who still want a Coffee on the eastside. I just left a store that had 9 bottles sitting on the shelf. It's Algers Deli and Liquor on Mack Ave just east of Cadieux. $19.99 a bottle. No Cherry made it to the store though.

    Thanks for giving the heads up. Unfortunately not all BAs are into sharing the wealth like you, all 9 bottles were bought between 2 people shortly after you posted.
