    The Bell's website states the following:
    Q: When/where will it be available?
    A: Hopslam will start shipping to areas in Michigan, Indiana and Ohio the week of Jan. 7.
    It will begin shipping to Illinois, Wisconsin, Iowa, Minnesota, North Dakota, Missouri and Arizona the week of Jan. 14.
    It will then start shipping to Florida, Alabama, Georgia, South Carolina, North Carolina, Virginia, Washington DC, Kentucky and Pennsylvania the week of Jan. 21.

    Now as for how long the distribution takes after it starts shipping I would be interested to know myself.

    Hoping to see Hopslam in Florida by the end of January or at least the first week of February.

    Black Note has definitely hit some accounts in FL, but from what I hear, most accounts only got one to three cases, and several of them aren't even going to sell it, just use it for special events, etc.

    Wow, so is Gold Coast also handling the distrib. of Black Note? Are there any stores slated to get some, or just bars?

    I called Total Wine in Miami (Pinecrest) and they told me beginning of February. Sunset Corners said they would be getting it, just don't know when. They just said to keep calling because it would disappear as soon as they got it.

    I know Luekens in Dunedin is releasing it during Tampa Bay Beer Week in March.

    Awww. I was hoping to see it at TW this Tuesday. I was able to some fresh Sculpin, which just hit Miami, yesterday, so i guess I'll be able to wait.

    I work for a store, and the distro in Jax apparently only got 2 or 3 cases. They aren't selling it to any accounts, just using it for special events.

    We are doing a Bell's tasting on February 8th in Jacksonville (I work at Grassroots) and will be sampling Black Note, but will have none for sale, as we are only getting a couple/few 12oz bottles.

    Total Wine here in Fort Myers said they'll have it in stock on February 1. Also, World of Beer is tapping a keg on 1/29 at 6:00. They said they probably wouldn't be getting any bottles.

    JJ Taylor just posted to twitter with a nice picture of Hopslam. They said it has hit Florida and should be in stores by Friday.

  17. end of the week I hear...word on the skreet is that they (Tryon) got half of what NC is allotted and are waiting for the other half so they could release it all at once instead of picking and choosing and pissing everyone off...

  18. Good to know. Thanks!
  19. You are correct sir! Can't wait!!
  20. Just out of curiosity, what are yall paying per six? It hit in Charleston today and I'm not paying $21. I'll gladly pay $11 for Sucks until it runs out.

  24. Well. Just saw bestway in Greensboro say on the facebooks that the nc release is 2-5-13 and Roger usually gets a pile of every rare-ish release....

    Total wine on dale mabry. Behind counter. 2-6 pack limit.
  26. Clusterfuck here in Charleston. CBX sold out in less than 30 min. Bottles still had it around 6pm, with a one 6 pack per person max. This was shocking to me. I had absolutely no trouble getting multiple six packs last year in FL. This year, in SC, I feel fortunate that I was able to get ONE six pack.

    Yea last year I walked into total wine and bought a case with no prob, this year it's limited! Was looking to get a case!

    Damn, I was just there this afternoon. I'll have to go back tomorrow I guess.
  29. Yup...pretty much sums up Charleston today! Happy to have at least one sixer buy pretty disappointed overall. Where are all of these people during the weekends? Sure as shit not at the local breweries or CBX during the rest of the year...LOL. Oh well...lesson learned and will prepare more adequately for the this year's KBS release.

    i hope the total wine in orlando does nto put a limit on hopslam, as i promised a case to my buddy up in NY, and wanted a case for myself as well. guess we will see. the guy at colonial TW said they will probably not put a limit on the beer, but i antiicpiate it going very quickly.

    At opening this morning, they said a 2 6-pack limit but before I left, they were deciding whether to lift the limit. I only needed one so I didn't stick around to confirm.

    Stopped by the Dale Mabry Total Wine this morning at 9am and got my 2 six packs. Bottle date os 1/23/13, so probably about as fresh as it gets for us. Sweet.

    Orlando. Might want to go quickly too, they had 3 cases or so of Black Note as well.

    Bestway Grocery in Greensboro, NC said on Twitter that the statewide release is Tuesday, Feb. 5. I suppose it's up to the shop if they actually release it that day.
  38. Sad, but true.....Pushed back to Tuesday.......Going back to my bottle of Sucks now! What am I going to drink for Superbowl?!!
