    You can still find Great Divide BA Ruffian on the shelves. Crooked Stave L'Brett D'or is going fast. There's a few barrel aged beers from River North.

    Hey Chicano. It's been a while. You want anything from Michigan?
     
  4. I haven't been to a liquor store in awhile (trying to cut some costs and stick to homebrew more) but last time I was (around New Year's), there was some Dry Dock Bligh's Barleywine, which is barrel-aged and personally one of the best beers I've ever had.

    Most of the Bligh's is gone, but they've made some posts on Facebook over the last 2 weeks featuring stores that still have (...or had) some. It's worth keeping an eye on their FB if you're looking to hunt some down.

    AC Golden Ctayt is still on shelves, I haven't seen BA Old Ruffian but BA Hibernation is on shelves. River North might still have some barrel aged saisons and imperial stout.

    Elevation said a while back their Bourbon Barrel Aged Oil Man Imperial Stout should be on the shelves sometime in January. Recommended.
