    Hey, I'm just happy we get BCBW in GA.. First time ever.

    It's probably my least favorite, but hey.. baby steps.

    I've got a 2012 BCBS, 2013 BCBS, 2013 BCBCS, and a 2013 BCBW in the fridge to go through soon.

  5. The way I see it...

    Would you bat an eye at an $8, 8-10 ounce pour of BCBS at a bar? Probably not. Why not spend $8 on a 12 ounce bottle for yourself?

    I understand there's an inherent markup drinking beer at a restaurant/bar, but the fact is that most of us are willing to spend close to a $1 an ounce for it regardless of the setting.

    I can...I'm hooked on BCBS! And I haven't even tried any of the variants.

    Have had the barley wine on tap and it's excellent. Some that I've spoken with like it better than the stout.

    This drought will end tonight. :D

    I hope I don't like it more than the regular because I'll only have one left. I'm sure I'll be ISO next by tomorrow.

    He had the barleywine between 3:55-4:04? Idk its possible, but seems unlikely, I agree.

    Maybe just me but I don't consider BCBBW to be a variant of BCBS.. No one considered King Henry to be a variant.

  26. So I walked into a bottle shop the other day to pick up few this and that's. Walked up to counter to pay and I look at the display shelving behind the register and at the corner of my eye I noticed a bright blue bourbon county bottle sitting all the way up top shelf. In complete shock I muttered to the staff member, "oh shit is that a proprietor bottle that I see behind you?!?"
    Long story short, that was only just an empty bottle of proprietor that they apparently place there just for display for some reason. Such a tease...such a tease.

    For anyone in Oakland County, MI....there are 2 places that have it on tap

    BCBS is at Renshaw in Clawson $9 for a 9 oz pour

    BCBW is at Clubhouse BFD in Rochester...unsure of the price.

    I was able to score 2 bottles of the BCBS loclly here but thats it.

    There was a shop in Macomb county that said he would have BCBCS but sold out when I went back to check. Didn t say how many bottles he got though.

    By now, very unlikely. Unless, of course, the price is high.

    Go to Liquor World in kankakee before 6pm. The guy had some of both in the back, by I had to buy one of the sisters, for each backyard or coffee 4pk I wanted to buy. It's a haul but he has them.
  31. edmaher

    edmaher Savant (320) Illinois Jan 11, 2008

    And it's $25 for bombers and $23 for 4packs
  32. zrbeer1579

    zrbeer1579 Savant (335) Illinois Dec 3, 2012

    Yeah, I've heard some places do that; even taped bottles together.

    I'm not a fan, but I turned around and traded Gillian for a case, of fresh Jai Alai, so it makes for a few more bucks, but for mid February it's the only way to make it happen. I cleaned him it if proprietors last week.
