Time to text my St. Paul beer mule.
south lyndale still has about a case and a half left @17.99, 2 bottle limit
Damn, didn't realize people were going to be chasing trucks with this release hahaha.
I can't wait til the hipsters latch onto something besides craft beer.
what else is there dude?
Too bad they look nowhere near a clean as the instagram picture most of my bottles look like they were stamped by Hellen Keller.
let the stampede begin.....
Do you guys think places were putting out their full shipments? Or are they going to let some sit in the back until us freaks are onto the next thing?
Sours are my main "seek to cellar" item. I hope I can get another 2-3 to trade off for some Dissident and RR sours.
First world problems...
In stock at Blue Max- $19- 2 bottle limit.
FYI- The bottle I bought had a very well done stamp in the wax on top!
The Pentagram/Five BA listings are now accurate -- if you've reviewed it already, just move your review here:
First Grand still had 2 whole cases left as of 1:15
Got my bottles at blue max too, stamping looked solid. Can't wait to crack one open tonight. BM did say that they probably would not be getting any more after their drop today, and they expect it to sell out this afternoon.
My mom just texted me "Bam! Happy (early) Birthday!" accompanied by a picture of two bottles of Pentagram. An unexpected nice surprise, especially since she's coming to my house tomorrow!
I gave those to your mom as a thank you.
Sorry, seemed like a "your mom" joke was required, this being the internet and all. I already regret posting it.
Just snagged 2 more from Edina Liquor off York. No limit there - $19.99
cutting myself off now
Seems like the "no limit" places are upping the price a few bucks - other places have it for a buck or two cheaper. It's almost like they're trying to sell them before people realize they're being overcharged.
What is the ABV for this?
They will have no trouble selling them for $19.99, it's Edina. I see what you're saying though. Bastards.
Just got 2 bottles (the limit, though I can't afford more) from the Liquor Barrel in Golden Valley, MN. $17 each. Crazy wax jobs on them. Will post pics later.
Haskells in Downtown Mpls was no limit...17.99
I think it's supposed to be around 7.6%, I looked on my bottles but I don't see it listed.
anyone care to help out a west coast trader? got good west coast beers to offer for a pair
I have 0 so far. Hope that changes at some point though.
It said 6.66% on the Tap List at the release party.
This is complete speculation but I feel like that is for show??
I figured it was tongue in cheek, but didn't want to seem uncool on the internets.
The guy at the liquor store had them behind the counter so I didn't get to choose. These are the wild horses I got:
I can't decide if this is a middle finger or an erection...
First Grand is now free of Pentagram.
As of closing time tonight, Big Top in Midway had about a case or so left.
We also played Iron Maiden's "Number of the Beast" as we tapped the first keg.
I planned on waiting calmly until Friday to pick up a few bottles, however, this strategy proved futile. Now we'll see if I can wait until then to drink one.
Marshall Liquors just got some in about half an hour ago. $16.99 each. Didn't seem to be limit.
Haskell's in St Paul is expecting 8 cases this afternoon.
I talk to Todd he said it was around 7%
Damn, can't get back up in the cities until Saturday...someone grab me a case and I'll pay you back + gas + buy you a beer or three, haha. Seriously.
A lot of MGMs are getting their supply on Friday, so you may still have a chance if no one helps you out.
Thanks for the info!
A buddy of mine was going to buy himself a bottle today while he was visiting the Cities and walked in right behind a guy. He was so unlucky that the guy in front of him immediately told the store clerk he would take the rest of the Pentagram they had. So he got the last of the 32 bottles of Pentagram there. My buddy asked if he could just have one of them before he bought them and the assholes response was, "Yeah, for 50 bucks." The store owner told my friend he's very sorry that there's nothing he could do and that he would be setting a strict limit on releases like this in the future.
I know people really want the beer, but if you're going to buy the last 32 and there's a guy right there just wanting the one bottle I'd hope most people on here would let the guy have one himself. If that guy reads this, well then I guess he knows how I feel about him
Edit: Obviously it is more the stores fault than the buyer. I'd just like to think most people that actually like beer would be nice enough to let the person have one bottle in an instance like this.
