    Whole Foods in Evanston, both of them, were selling regular, coffee and barleywine four-packs for $22.99 as of 4pm today. The south Evanston one has cases of regular on the floor, which means if you buy a case, you get a 10% discount on six four-packs. Ask Jill for the coffee/barleywine, they don't have it out.

    Came and went here. 6.50 / 7 bucks a bottle with limits at some stores. Very slim pickings, nobody got very much at all.

    Had 13 regular and 13 coffee tonight. Both were fantastic.

    The 13 coffee is as good of a coffee stout as you will find. Just brilliant. Tasted like a fresh cup of espresso and the nose is absolute incredible. A great year for BCS.

    Just find your local Binnys and be there when they open, they'll have decent stock and should have fair prices and limits...

    Thanks a lot. There was still some of coconut and backyard at 7pm. Though he wants you to buy a 4 pack of regular as well, but I asked if it could be the barleywine instead and he said ok.

    Any recommendations for the crystal lake area? I'm not from around here but could probably travel a 20 minute radius. Any grocery stores?
