    thanks, hopefully it lasts for a few days until I have a chance to get up there. I would hope that if they're selling it by the case with no limit from the initial release that they feel they have enough to last for at least a little while/not sell out on the first weekend.
  5. This.
    So much of this
  6. I was told case limit when I was there a couple weeks back.

  17. Make that ~115 cases now...but I got the sense that not much of it was sold today due to the 'soft release'.

    so 12x 375ml for $100 right? I can dig that
  19. Damn I really want one of those. Just no way I can get there before it sells out. ISO. Ft we can figure that out later.
  20. Looks like I'll be driving up tmrw. See you jerks there!

    Ha! My second trip to NEBCO in the last two weeks perhaps? Bottle share? Tempting.
  22. I'll be there with Cuzco. We plan on bringing some bottles. Be there around noon, most likely. Maybe earlier.

    If anyone wants to set up an IP trade, let me know. Have a few BCBCS's, a few HF bottles, and a bunch of other stuff.

    Not my place but wish it wasn't one case...maybe a few bottles. There's plenty of NEBCO faithful who may miss out if they can't get there today. I know I personally would rather have a few bottles so that I know that potentially leaves more for the heads that may not be able to make it today. All in all tho, if they're willing to sell it and you can buy it then more power to you.

    im on my way via train from NYC. not bringing any bottles or anything and have to run to meet up with an ex girlfriend.

    is there a line forming or anything? hope i get some bottles.

    anyway, i'll be wearing a black coat, gray sweater, tan corduroys, have black hair and a beard (with early grayness and a nice bald spot) and will be with my tiny father. be sure to say "hello!" if you like my posts, or "fuck you!" if you don't (or nothing if you don't care). i will respond as awkwardly as possible.

    also, if bottles sell out and anyone wants to hold on to 4 for me, let me know.

    nice, thanks:). sounds like it will be a smooth pickup of a few bottles for me (i hope).

    I got there at about 10:30. There was no line But they were letting people in early to make purchases. There was a pretty steady stream of people coming in.

    i grabbed 6 at around 11:20. very relaxed, maybe about 10 ppl hanging around. think i saw about 5~7 cases sold during the 5 min it took me to drink my 668 sample. if you want some, i'd suggest heading out asap...

    BA stout brewery only or going to distro? Unclear from anything here or on their FB page.
  30. Brewery only.
  31. Bigstein09

    Bigstein09 Zealot (90) Connecticut Oct 23, 2012

    you guys think there will be any left at around 130?
  32. I had no idea what to expect (I've only been to Captain Lawrence releases before), so I got there at like 9:30, and nobody was there. I killed an hour, came back around 10:30, and they were letting people in early. Grabbed my six bottles, but 4 or 5 cases got sold while I was doing so. So like Pahn said, if you're hoping to get some and haven't yet, I'd hustle.

    Anyone want to pick up a couple bottles for me? I'll be rolling through CT next weekend, I84 to I91, and I'd love to pick up just two bottles. Cash or trade!!

    I was @ the brewery a little after 12. Still tons of cases from the sounds of it. In the time I was there (15 minutes) about 5 or 6 cases were sold from the looks of it. Also they just tapped a fresh keg of GB for fills.
  35. I was there a little before noon and also got a case. I was the guy with 2 kids.... At this rate it wont last long.
  36. NJOssie

    NJOssie Savant (265) New Jersey Feb 28, 2012

    Unfortunately didn't meet an BA's but we got our cases and had a couple bottles with Rob and the guys.
  37. What's the ABV for the ba stout? What kind of barrels? Thanks.
  38. I think their FB page says Willet bourbon barrels
  39. 8.5% according to untappd and Willett bourbon barrels based off of a facebook reply.
  40. You guys think there will be plenty of it left on Monday? The brewery is closed on Sunday's right?
