Will be a very expensive day if that's the case
I think it will be worth it.
I'd be happy just to get a couple of each bottles. I really don't care what I have to pay for them. This is my favorite beer. Was nice to drink a little at Senior Wongs tonight. They had a 1/6th of '12 BCBS and the same of '12 Darkness. I guess they had a Rum King by Indeed. Supposedly the only keg out of the brewery. It was pretty good. My first rum aged.
Haskell's Minnetonka just tweeted "Official word: #BCBS will not be available at the store this year. #bummer"
I saw this also :/
Zipps is doing a raffle system this year.
I guess I shouldn't get my hopes up for variants.
Wow, and a friend in Pennsylvania said he had no problem getting a case or two.
Those damn Amish get all the lucky breaks...
That absolutely sucks.
Big top Eagan 2 bottle limit
this is weak
Big top Eagan is sold out. Took only an hour. Good luck to everyone hunting!
MGM Eagan had some as of 11 am
Gone at MGM eagan
Wow, two quieter haunts near my house in the decidedly non-beer-hot-spot of Eagan wiped out within an hour in the middle of the day? I'm looking around for the plague of locusts.
Princeton's tweeted 30 min ago they have it in with a two bottle limit. I'll never make it there in time so good luck to everyone else!
Princeton's in MG just got regular BCBS, 2 bottle limit.
While there, I spoke with the GI distributor (nice guy). He basically said that no TC liquor stores will be getting any variants. They didn't get enough to distribute evenly to their accounts. He said that local bars/restaurants will get the variants and release them as special promotions/events.
I suppose the only way we'll know for sure is if anyone sees the variants turn up in the next few days, but it's not looking great
Is Coffee considered a variant? If so then 2 stores in Eagan received it.
I saw BCBS and Coffee at MGM in Eagan (sadly it was being held for someone)... and he was expecting Backyard and BW later in the week.
Maybe it's just for the NW suburbs then...
Not true. Surdyk's just sold out of BW and Coffee an hour ago. Note: BCBS was $21.99, the same price as in Chicago.
Well good to know there's still a chance to find them
Not necessarily the same price. I had friends in Milwaukee and Chicago pick up 4 packs from $18.99 - $19.99. Either way....not much difference
I'm not sure who the 2 distributors are in the metro but it sounds like one sold variants to stores and the other didn't. I wonder if they got the same amount.
At all the Binny's in Chicago BCBS was $21.99 each. I bought two BCBS 4 pks in Appleton, WI, for $17.49 each.
Hy-Vee in Ames, IA. $24.99 a four pack.
Princeton's in Maple Grove, MN. $4.99 a bottle. (Limit 2)
College City was the distributor I saw in Eagan.
This thread is slowly ruining my day.
single bottle limits everywhere I went. no coffee or bramble.
I did some calling. ..Yeah.....I was that guy. Sounds as if some stores are still awaiting their shipment. Lowry said as late as Friday.
I checked 3 stores in the SE metro, then swung north, to head to my area (downtown/ne) - no one had any.
Closest i came was Surdyks, who i called and was told "we have plenty, if you get here soon you will be able to get some" - i got there 10 minutes later and they were out.
One of the shops I stopped at said they had a line of people at the door in the morning, who had followed the trucks. If you were one of those people, i hate you.
In response to my comment on the truck chasers, one of the other stores said "when we get it, we wont put up with that garbage, we sell to who we want, and will severely limit it".
Eh, i have a 8am-5pm job, so i called out too, if i have an hour for lunch, i want to maximise it. Most places were out, and the ones that said they had it were out within the hour of me calling.
All i got out my hunt was a Crime and a Punishment from Stone.
If you chase trucks for beer you are a loser
What about Ice Cream? If so. I'm a pretty big loser
I thought you weren't hunting due to trade buddies hooking you up. Now my chances of finding any went down one MNRyan-worth....
I have come to the realization that I will not be getting any bottles of BW or coffee, luckily I have friends who will share theirs.
I am unsure if I am getting any regular/coffee/b wine.
Luckily i have a few left from last year, and will try and trade. Or hope my buddy in chicago can come through.
And to think that '12 hung around for a month or so after distribution.... Times they are a changin'
Got two bottles of regular at Princetons around 1:45pm and they were almost out. Don't think I'll even bother trying to get more, too much hassle and I'm tired of running around town for beers.
Some stores got BW and Coffee.
Zipp's Liquors Store
To our beloved beer fans: Bourbon County Stout and Barleywine 4pks are in stock as of today, however, due to the extremely limited supply we will be raffling them off. Stop in today or tomorrow and talk to a cashier to enter! In-person entries only.
