    I can't believe I am asking this, but does anyone know any places still selling regular Bourbon County at a decent price? I have been drinking this more than originally anticipated and would like to get some more but haven't been able to find any.

    Thanks for the help.
  2. i havent checked in the past week or so but the Dominick's by Depaul has had it in pretty steady since it came out and for about 21 bucks

    Thanks. I called and they said no, but not really confident in their answer since they had no idea what I was talking about. If you happen to see differently, please let me know!

    It's funny you ask this because I was thinking the same thing. Freakin a week ago Binny's had cases stacked to the sky, now it is gone like a flash.

    I've also found myself hankering for another 4pk or two. Capones claims to have it on the shelf for $23.99. I hesitate to send any business their way, but if ya gotta have it.

    I met a ba there for a trade Monday evening. They had a couple cases and had a case of coffee at $24. I walked out with neither.
  10. uggh i dont wanna pay 24 but i want another coffee...

    That frickin guy. It is most likely $1-2 more than what he puts on beermenus. You'd think he would have realized that this trick is shitty and people don't like it.

    Didn't see any regular BCBS while driving through Chicago 3 days ago and stopping by the 2 downtown Binny's. But Binny's on Grand had maybe 8 bottles of BCBCS just in case you wanted these too.

    I was just there NYE, did not see. In the back? If so, "FML, Shoulda asked." Oh well, the end of days, tilquin and cranpire worked equally well :)

    I walked in there looking for half a dozen beers they had online @ beermenus.com and by the time I got to the 4th or 5th beer on my list and they had none of them I walked out and made the choice to not go back. Simple.

    It was on the top shelf of the GI display they had near the coolers. Sorta near the back. Not where they keep the bottles that have limits, near the registers.

    Castle Vav, as of yesterday, still had some Coffee (or rather maybe just got in more Coffee) on the shelf for $19.99. Limit 2?
  17. Vav

    Vav Advocate (515) Illinois Jul 27, 2008

    Limit one.

    Actually, the sign reads: "Bourbon County Coffee Is Limited To 1 Bottle Per Customer. And If You Already Got One, Maybe Leave It For Someone Else? 'Tis The Season..."

    Any coffee out in the southwest burbs?

    I can't stand Capones either. I've stopped there a couple times and had the same experience, Beer Menu prices are wrong and not available. Won't be going there anymore, I guess their name proceeds them.

    SSGKIM Disciple (70) Illinois Jan 6, 2013

    The liquor store by Lawrence and Austin still has a couple bottles of cherry rye and I think the guy said a case of coffee left. I bought a bottle of each earlier today and it was 19.99
  21. jbecke2

    jbecke2 Savant (250) Illinois Oct 22, 2011 Beer Trader

    Just talked to them, they sold their last (3)bottles of cherry rye earlier but they do still have coffee.
  22. Dontcounttoday

    Dontcounttoday Advocate (570) Illinois Apr 23, 2010 Beer Trader

    How in the hell did they still have Cherry Rye??
  23. doogie71628

    doogie71628 Savant (255) Illinois May 9, 2012 Beer Trader

    3 Cherry's still out there a little over a month after release??? I think our Chicago hoarding title should be stripped.

  26. great now i'm gonna try and sneak out of work early to snag one.

    I was just there...are they in the back?
  28. mjohnson17

    mjohnson17 Advocate (640) Illinois Apr 29, 2012 Beer Trader

    Nope, they were on the top shelf of that little black wooden Goose Island shelf along with Big John and some 4 packs of Sofie, Pepe Nero and maybe a few bombers of Juilet or Sofie. The shelf is to the left of the mix-a-six rack.
  29. i went by at about 3 and they were out :'(
  30. mjohnson17

    mjohnson17 Advocate (640) Illinois Apr 29, 2012 Beer Trader

    Bummer :( I hope someone didn't just grab all 8 because I didn't see a limit sign. I actually passed them up thinking someone else might enjoy the chance at some.

    ppohio Aficionado (220) Illinois Aug 5, 2011 Beer Trader

    D&D on Division has BCBS for $49.99 (no joke) and Coffee for $29.99 - what a deal! :rolleyes:
  32. Stevedore

    Stevedore Poobah (1,065) Wisconsin Nov 16, 2012 Beer Trader

    Man what a rip. But I guess thats why they still have them. Anyone see any BCBS at a reasonable price today? My fianceƩ is there to take a board exam and she might be able to stop by a place or two to pick up something good.

    Warehouse Liquors still has a bunch of BCBCS at ~$22. At least they did a few hours ago.
  34. Stevedore

    Stevedore Poobah (1,065) Wisconsin Nov 16, 2012 Beer Trader

    Yeah these are what I was talking about. There were a bunch there and had no limit. I'm guessing some dude came by and bought them all.. too bad they didn't have any BCBS- I'd like to stock up on those for these cold Wisconsin winter months coming up..
  35. thetomG

    thetomG Savant (475) Illinois Feb 17, 2010 Verified

    Wow - so the BCBS went from $38.99 on release to $49.99 already... unreal. That place just gets worse and worse. What a load of shit.
  36. someone may wanna point this out to their distributors. then at least they should get a slap on the wrist..

    when i first read that i was reading the BCBS as the cherry rye and thinking that although silly isnt as bad as iv seen it... but for a four pack... its funny because places like Dominicks have it for 20 or 21 a 4 case.

    Has anyone tried the few month old coffee yet (or is this a second batch)? I cracked my second and final bottle last night, the coffee has faded pretty badly but holy cow did it turn into some sort of beautiful vanilla flavor. It was amazing!! Intrigued on how this one will age with that weird coffee turn vanilla flavor, now I must hunt down a bottle.

    Coffee has faded pretty badly? It has only been 2 months, lets not get carried away...
  39. i got to try a bottle at Christmas and i'd say its lost some of the coffee. still very much there and I enjoyed the flavor

    Drucifer Advocate (590) Illinois Apr 16, 2012 Beer Trader

    For realz, I had my last 2010 on New Years and it was still very coffee forward. I was lucky to snag a few coffees this year and am definitely going to age at least one of them.
