    Oh, I buy my dog Black Note and most every other limited release he hears about, but you don't see me posting about it. Larry Bell has no clue how much of his work is being lapped out of steel bowls.

  3. I think we should give Larry Bell a little cred here and thank him for the beer. My dogs are not gonna be licking up his beers and the Black Note I was lucky enough to get I have been sharing with my friends. For some reason we got the release here first and that might be because the distributors screwed up and we may not get much of their future rare releases. I'm not sure if we got the release because we are a very loyal Bells state and lick up every bit we can. But let's have a little respect and be happy that for once we in MN got a REALLY good beer here first when it usually doesn't happen. Have some respect for Bell's and maybe we will get some releases before others do in the future. I know it benefitted me although it wasn't like I got a billion bottles but this is good beer and we should be happy we got any.

    Edit: And what I got I already drank with my buddies. Beer is a commodity to be shared and not hoarded.

    Ha! The FF future allotments for rare beers will always be about 10 bottles short since they will be already reserved for the big spenders.

    Called Central Ave Liquors to see if they got any in. The guy on the phone said you can only buy it if you are on their loyalty program. I have been going in their for over a year and have never heard of the program...
     
  14. They did something similar with backyard rye.

  17. Most stores have been selling it by the bottle - 1 per customer, and are sold out within a couple of hours. Good luck!

    It could be a drive, but I would check with Cashwise in St Michael, Clearwater or Waite Park. They got it in yesterday and may just be remote enough to still have it. Give them a call, St. Michael held some for me and the manager at the Corborns Liquor store in Albertville said the other two locations would hold it too if you call. Only one bottle though, but St. Michael and Clearwater aren't "too" far from one another.

    From what the manager at the Corborn's liquor store said, those would be the only Cashwise stores to get it since they made the cut for selling enough of Bell's beer.

    Some smaller stores only get Bells deliveries every other week.
     
  24. Saw this, and was confused. Read through the FF thread, then saw this again and then I laughed. *golf clap*
