    So did we find out exactly(factually) how many cases of Cherry Rye were produced, or at least shipped to wholesalers/retailers?
     
  2. Nope, we speculate and then argue
     

  3. They can't divide up a case, it's illegal
     
  4. Meaning that they had to get a whole case, distributors can't divide up a case

    Apparently here on Long Island, NY, we only got 20 cases, no more than 1 per store. No store will sell more than 1 bottle. Damn them!

    This varies by state. Many states allow split case sales.

  9. Anyone know if or where I can get this in KY

    traded a 4 pack of new glarus enigma for a cherry last week to help out a friend who loves enigma. I really wasnt a fan of the cherry but i am interested in how it ages

    The Binny's on Grand still has a couple bottles of BCBCS as of today.
     
  14. I wanted the cherry, real bad. Called a few places near me, they weren't getting any, so I said "such is life."

    And then I wept in private

    a day or so after I posted that I couldnt find it in Jersey I was able to pick up some coffee and cherry rye. Im gonna hang on to one of each to cellar and drink one of each I think.
