    Any word on when GI Madame Rose is being released? Thought I saw a few weeks back it was being bottled.
  2. This is going to be one of *those* answers and I'll apologize in advance -- but I think the answer is, "When it's ready".

    If I recall correctly, Juliet sat for 1-2 months after it was bottled and before it was released. I think they want to be certain nothing wonky goes on once the beer goes into the bottles. There are probably smarter answers than that, ones that involve science and acids and whatnot, but you get the idea.

    It's bottled, but Goose is extremely picky about when their stuff goes to market. When they feel it's ready, it'll go out.

    at the chance of sounding ignorant and selfish, i'm not. friend of a friend of a friend's 'source' etc got them in. From my gf who surprised me today. this should be hitting the stores this week. price was pricier at 23 bucks plus tax, i'd imagine the regular markets would be a few dollars cheaper. such as binny's.

  5. At long last

    Wasn't it for sale at the brewpub a few weeks ago. Could of swore usage it in the cooler during belgian fest
  11. I would hope it's not any more than Juliet? So it would be around a $19 price tag at Binny's.

    Note: I think I paid $15 for the 2010 a little over a year ago.

    Is this anywhere in the city yet? I'd love to grab a bottle or two today.
  14. Binny's on Grand. You have to call ahead and get put on the list for some reason. List is not full, they have the bottles in hand, you can still call and get placed on it, but not pick it up without being on the list.

    Also, lots of BCBS just came in!

    thanks! way cheaper than what i paid :( a premium that may or may not be worth it to be the first person to have MR by only 8 hours before anyone else. bring it.

    Hope to see some around Milwaukee sooner than later. Really got lucky with Lolita, randomly saw a lone bottle at Whole Foods and snagged it, but never once saw Juliet.

    I just called and was told there was no list, so did my friend, same answer. I was polite and funny so I know it wasn't me!

    there wasn't a list either when i called. i stopped by the binny's on grand at about 515pm. On the floor was about 3.4 ~4 cases of BCBS (less full from the pic dontcounttoday posted).

    madame at 16.99 is a great price. cheaper than juliet. i stopped by after work and picked up madame rose, i skipped on BCBS but i did snag a BCBS empty box for 'sentimental' reasons. Enjoy.
  22. Was able to score a madame at Binny's on grand.

    If anyone in Grand Rapids sees this on the shelf somewhere, can you BM me? I'd like to get a bottle, and I know it won't show up in Traverse City. I have family in GR who could go grab it for me though.

  24. It's also at capone's, but for $24 a bottle you are far better off going to Binny's on Grand.

    jeonseh Savant (495) Indiana Oct 14, 2007

    I'd be shocked if we don't end up seeing a ton of this given 1) GI Clybourn still had 2010 almost 2 years later 2) the amount of Juliet and Lolita that was out. You can still find them
  26. mdomask

    mdomask Savant (335) Illinois May 27, 2012

    Passed on this last night at $22/bottle over at Noble Grape, especially with Binny's doing $17. It'll be around.

    Is this something that'll be seen anywhere outside of Chicago?
  29. ravot

    ravot Savant (460) Illinois Mar 20, 2012

    good question.

    if you've seen juliet and lolita, i'd imagine so. hopefully there is. it's the best of the bunch.

    I just picked up a bottle of Madame Rose at Binnys Grand. They have about a half case left.

    And I agree with what jeonseh said:

    To further prove his point, Binnys Grand has cases of Juliet on the floor along with the other standard bombers.
  33. tinypyramids

    tinypyramids Savant (480) Illinois Jul 19, 2012

    saw the same when i picked up my bottle this morning. $20 each though on the juliet - i heard something about wholesale on the 3 sisters going up but i can't remember where.
  34. foobula

    foobula Savant (340) Illinois Dec 14, 2009

    Yeah, the archer liquors guy tweeted that wholesale went up something like $3 in between the Lolita and Juliet releases.

    Damnit! Went there on Tuesday with a friend and was half-hoping for BCBS or Madam Rose being there. Ah well, hopefully it makes its way to the East Side/Downtown area... I wish my friends here told me that having a vehicle is almost required to go anywhere BEFORE I moved here, ha.
