    My mind did not even hesitate to read this in a thick country accent. It was instantaneous.

    Damn... I read through 6 pages of whale whining and no one has replied to where this coozie can be purchased :confused:

    Only 3 actually.
  9. Custom made by a friend here on ba. I believe there were only 15-20 ever made. So it is a legit whale koozie, so .rar

    made in pvw barrels on 101207
  10. every had Cantillion? Cherry rye is a shelf turd.
  11. I really think that for many, it's firstly, where you live (and what you regularly have access to), and secondly, what you've tried that you have access to. For me, I live in an area where I will have the White Chocolate (and other Bruery brews) shipped to my house, I live next to some fabulous breweries (Russian River, Lagunitas, etc.) - also, there are a number of great bottle shops here, so I'm not really worried about hunting out hyped up great beers - there's too much here for me to try! Also, I'm wary of trading with people I don't know - for now. But that being said, I'm also somewhat new to the BA beer scene, so I think that for many of you veterans who have seen all of the BA beers that there are to see in your local area, done verticals of each etc., well yeah, happy hunting!

    Amen! Have only found and sought out a few whales, for me. This is a HUGE
    reason why I LOVE good/rare beers with worthy friends. Maybe I'm just too nice
    or putting out good karma? But most people are very grateful and provide more beer
    for us to share over time if they can not find whales.

    FYI for any Central Iowa BAs looking. Saw plenty of 4pks of BCBS at HyVee on Mills Civic Parkway in WDSM today.
