  1. So it looks like California got shut out of BCBS bottle-wise, but kegs are starting to pop up in unexpected places. Let's keep track of when and where. We already have Out of the Park Pizza in Anaheim tapping it tonight at 4pm.

    Yardhouse Irvine should have it on tap next week sometime.

  2. Sacramento got 2 kegs of BCBS during Sac Beer Week in February

  5. Yardhouse in Irvine is getting one? I will just have to stop on by since its literally 2 miles from my house since i cant make it to out of the park pizza tonight
     
  6. Yardhouse has been getting some awesome stuff lately.

    I had 120min recently on draught and Sucaba&Parabola in bottles.

    is all the awesome stuff for all yard house locations? or just the one in irvine?
     
  11. I'm referring to the one in Costa Mesa, old Nike Town. I think the white board list is at all of them.
     
  12. All Yardhouse locations have been getting amazing kegs lately. A bit crazy to see a bunch of Bud/Coors drinkers try something with a kick and hating it...

    ...More for us!

    They had a keg of it?? I was there for the Goose Island tasting event but they were just pouring samples from bottles. Bummed if I missed out on a whole keg.

    I wasn't there, but told by others it was there.
     
  16. Anybody know when the keg of Goose Island at Out of the Park finally blew? They were still pouring when I left around 6.

    I'll be tapping a 2012 BCBS at Ciro's Pizzeria and Beerhouse @6pm next Friday, March 29th.
    Cheers!

  22. They've been announcing this for a few days now. Unfortunately, I was not able to break free today. Ciro has connections. :)

    Debating on if I want to drive down. I have like six bottles of the 2012 in the fridge... but getting some on tap in SD would be pretty cool.

    Which location is this being tapped at?
     
  24. tyrsis

    tyrsis Savant (415) California Mar 13, 2009

    oh wait it was at 6pm... to hell with it
     
  25. You need to put Ciro's on your Facebook Like list.

    I wouldn't assume it is all gone, unless it is a really long drive for you. We are talking PB, you know.

    The Taste of Orange event on April 28th will have Goose Island in attendance as one of the beer vendors. Maybe if we pray hard enough they will bring a keg or two Bourbon County.
     
  28. No - you've got numbers in your favor. Unless there is a roadblock up, but even then it wouldn't even start until 10ish.

    I happened to walk into el prado in echo park tonight and it was on tap. I have no idea how long its been on or how much is left, but nobody seemed to be ordering it while I was there.

    Churchill's on 4/11 FB EVENT

    We will be having a Goose Island Brewing night on Thursday, April 11th at 6pm including the rare and tasty Bourbon County Stout! This will be the first keg in 3 years tapped in San Diego! We will also be pouring Matilda, Sofie, India Pale Ale, & Pere Jacques
     
  31. I guess the BCBS keg that Ciro's tapped last night was a figment of everybody's imagination.

    Haha! Right? Where's the love? Ciro's had the first keg of BCBS but I was just happy to have it. Wait... Unless we didn't and it WAS just a figment of our collective imagination?!

    The Churchill's FB event was created on Thursday and it's possible, if not probable, that whoever manages their FB, be it Ivan or someone else, was unaware of the Ciro's tapping.
     
  35. Of course that is the case, but I do not let reasonable explanations get in the way of snarky remarks.

    To address Boog's question, love only goes so far, and at $10 a glass you only get my respect. :)

    Haha! Ouch... Although steep, any less would have negated the effort it took to be the first location with that particular beer. I think as the pipeline widens, we'll see more of Bourbon County variations and at a better price point. That 5 gallon keg was expensive!

    How big were the pours?
     
  38. As I said in another thread, it depended on who was pouring them. I'm not going to say much more than that, lest I get anybody in trouble.

    Pours were supposed to be eight ounces... Had a sample glass of water below tap for the staff. We had a really hard time with staff that night, my usual crew was out for various reasons and was forced to throw new people into the fire. If you saw discrepancies of note, you wouldn't be getting anyone in trouble. I actually felt terrible leaving with the staff I did but my newborn doesn't care about BCBS!:)
     
  40. Let's put it this way - the only discrepancy I noticed was that the first pour was greater than 8 oz. LOL
