Bell's Black Note (2013)

    Kahn's in Indianapolis tweeted this morning that because their allocation of Black Note is so limited, they're putting it all into their Beerocracy raffle thing that they do. They've also recently said that Oberon and Two Hearted were two of their top-three selling beers from last year.

    In short, in Indy at least, I don't imagine this is going to be too easy to find.

    I agree. It won't be esay to find. No doubt about that. But I have heard that one distributor in Northern IN received 20 cases. Can hardly imagine only six other cases being distro'd throughout the rest of the state. I could be wrong. I didn't recieve this information from Bell's. Happy Hunting!

    If we do, it will probably hit next week alongside Hopslam. I'll be posting findings if it pops up.

    No Hopslam, Black Note, or Founder's RIS today on my liquor run. Bummed that the 2 Bell's beers aren't out here yet but happy to still have some $ in my pocket.

    Dude that didn't last long enough!!! Ha ha!
  15. I will totally agree Adam, never seen it bottled. Only saw it on tap 2 seperate times, an I was thinking it was just a flash back from the 70's acid trips I MAY have taken ( You're Honor, I wish to plead the 5th on the grounds that what I say MAY incriminate me in a court of law)

    i have a trade buddy in indiana, and for his sake and mine I sure hope he can snag some, any idea if the distributors have released it to stores yet?
  19. ndepriest

    ndepriest Savant (290) Georgia Feb 21, 2012

    I have confirmation from a very knowledgeable source that at least some of this is coming to Georgia. Which likely means that it's hitting Bell's full distribution, if at very limited supply.

    bozodogbreath Savant (420) Indiana Oct 19, 2006

    Don't know for sure. Probably next wext.

    Damn I hope black note makes it's way down here to us! The Bells distribution to AZ seems to be ramping up, I heard that hopslam is on it's way!

  25. Sam's Quik Shop already has two more Black Note kegs in the cellar. John Boy invented beer hoarding. And I love him for it.

    I had this beer last night and it is amazing. I would say that KBS is my favorite stout and this rivals it. Get some if you can. I might even do my first BA review I love it so much!

    Is it coming with Hopslam this week?
  36. Yes, some random stores have it out with Hopslam now.

    A buddy of mine got a 4-pack in Port Huron last night. The store had no idea the following it had. They put a few in the cooler as singles, had a couple 4-packs and a few singles on the shelf. He was in shock that nobody there had a clue what it was.

    craigo19 Savant (260) Michigan Oct 12, 2009

    The general store had it yesterday with a one case limit. I picked up my four pack. I have another one coming through a party store that I used to work at, so I will have trading material.
  38. any sign of it in metro Detroit area yet ?

    Don't do that. Just drive 40 minutes to Bell's and pick up as much as you want!

    Nope, per my beer guy who will dog his distributor to death for it, they don't have it in the warehouse yet. I can't remember is his distributor's name, Peak or something with a P. Maybe in the northern suburbs, I am south. Hubby is just stopping by Bell's on his way to the farm today to pick-up some.
