    I may go bareback on a steed now and again, but I'm no cowboy.

    Yep, case of Cherry. You're a pillar to the BA Community.

    "Whales-Bro" was facetious. Actually, I take that back, it was sarcastic, as facetious wit is earned, and you have yet to do that.

    Either way, you have been trying to trade multiples of each several times unsuccessfully for some time now, so your continued failure to reach a deal, coupled with your cheery disposition will get you far I'm sure.

    Also, if you "Hate shipping" I don't see what someone in MA's ability to order Cantillon from Belgium has to do with anything.

    By all means, order all the loons in pajottenland yourself then. Piece of cake right? Click that mouse.

    Confirmed you wild stallion, case case of Cheery.... or maybe 5 or 6? Leave you guessing on that.

    Seems like you're keeping track of me on here, don't bother. Aquiring beer, and then trading said beer goes down all the time. Yeah I traded all types of multiples of a whole lotta beer, not just cherry or bcbs in the last week.....prolly keep doing too.

    You're kinda dense too, huh? Let me go over the Cantillon/BCBS thing again. Maybe somebody between here and Mass, where I travel semi-frequently, has a bunch of Cantillon for whatever reason but can't locate or doesn't want to purchase any BCBS for whatever reason....but they do want some BCBS and I want some Cantillon....that's when something called a trade happens, get it?

    For someone trying hard to get a trade done your're sure coming off as pretty arrogant. Could this be a reason you dont have your loons yet? I know for a fact that at this point you could offer me a case for one loon and I probably wouldn't bite just on the way you've acted superior to everyone else.

    I'm not trying to get any trade done. They happen or they don't. Plenty do.
  6. I swear i'm having the hardest time trading for some bcbs. How's the cherry rye stuff tasting compared to the original?

    I am pretty dense, thanks for noticing.

    Yeah, your "In person only" is actually "In person anywhere between Portland and Mass"

    I'm sure everyone else (who aren't as dense as I ) would clearly deduce that.

    You win sir. I can't argue with someone I feel this sorry for.

    Haven't tried it, but the cherry rye stout doesn't sound good. Cherry in a stout is never good. Is this a sour beer?

    Can't wait for the next BCBS release, Wheat Blood Sausase Orange Chestnut... mmmmm.

    CC is the busiest WF's i've been to, so your best option will be to just ask anyone. and if you can't find anyone, then go to someone behind the counter. They should at least be able to locate someone for you.

  23. When I went it was on the shelf to the right of the fridge. However, whenever I can't find anything, I usually ask one of the guys working there or at the On Tap section (usually they'll keep bombers and single bottles of more limited releases in the fridge over there) and they're generally nice enough to look for some in the back if it's not on display.

    Coffee and Cherry Rye finally hit the Madison, WI area today. Picked up a bottle of the coffee but the cherry rye just didn't sound appealing to me so I passed on that.

    For the life of me I have been unable to get a cherry rye. Most stores in my area got one bottle...

    Cases of BCBS up and down the state... I dont think so try 15 total cases that sold out in a week from distributor and anywhere from a day to a week sold out in all but one store in the greater portland area. I would not really say there is that much here... and if you are the person who walked in said bottle shop and bought a case of Cherry Rye BCS from the owner who had no idea what they were selling you... it kind of sucks that not even the beer buyer there or any of the regulars even got a shot at one of those bottles.

    Tons of BC Coffee at Eagle Provisions on 18th and 5th ave in Park Slope (but kind of pricey at $18/bottle). They had about 30 - 40 bottles easy. No Cherry Rye though.

    Also saw some Bolt Cutter there for $33/bottle. Ridiculous price, so I passed up on it. They had a few bottles left.

    Oh and Brooklyn Black Ops just came in, but it's $30/bottle. Hate the mark-up in Park Slope.

  29. I am noticing some posting that a Cherry Rye stout does not sound good, but I had one paired with BBQ from Smoque on the north side and I have to say that it was mighty tasty and in one year it will be EPIC!!!

    Allright you dont have to tell what store you found KH in. But where in the store did you find it? Was it buried behind some bottles? Behind the counter? Did they even realize what they had? Ive dreamed of stumbling across a bottle of KH.
  32. bozodogbreath

    bozodogbreath Savant (485) Indiana Oct 19, 2006

    One store I went to and asked for any GI variants and the beer guy brought me out the KH. But lightning struck twice, the second store I went to had them right out on the shelf in plain sight for everyone to see. I asked about limits and they said one per customer. I paid $13.26 including tax for the second bottle. BTW, I did let some friends know it was on the shelf and they are now proud owners of their own shelf walez! I thought about doin' a Jesse James when I saw the 6 btls on the shelf, but reason won out over want. :D

    You should join the PS Food Coop! Whoever does the beer buying has been getting great beer lately. They currently have a ton of Bolt Cutter for $18.66/bottle.

    RelentlessLefty Savant (290) Iowa Nov 1, 2012

    I cant imagine paying $30 a bottle for BCBCS. I paid $17 here. bought three. Can't wait to try to one tonight. Bolt cutter is not worth $33 even if you cant find it anywhere. Its flooded the market here and you can get it anywhere, and the most i have seen it sit on the shelves for is $22

    Crookdrain Savant (465) New York Jan 13, 2010

    I was a member a while ago, but it was too far away (I live in Bay Ridge) and instead we joined the fledgling Bay Ridge Food Co-Op, which is currently operating as a buying club, sans beer. I'd gladly pay you the $18.66 if you could pick me up a bottle though.

    Very incorrect. The final number was 96 BBLS.

    Distribution. If a salesperson was allocated two cases and only had one store that wanted it, taadaa.

    Honestly, not this time. I just got the one. I'm trying my damndest to get another one to take care of some customers.
  38. Jagen

    Jagen Aficionado (135) Illinois Oct 1, 2012

    I wonder how many of those 96 BBLs made it to stores? I figure they had to make a decent number of kegs (probably 1/6ers?) and save some bottles for future events...if all those BBLs made it into cases that'd be about 850 cases

    Wouldn't it be 1443 cases? Wikipedia says 31 gal/barrel. So 96 x 31 x 128 (oz per gal) ÷ 22 ÷ 12 = 1443.

    Yes, that is what my math tells me also.

    Which, if true, means GI still has LOTS of Cherry to release.

    EDIT: Rough estimate = 102 counties in Illinois x 3 cases per county(average, Cook got more obviously, but some got none) = ~306 cases distributed so far for Illinois -
