    Not sure about that L Knife stuff. Not saying it’s wrong per se, but Craft New England is a subsidiary of L Knife / Sheehan Companies. So that logic would say there would be no variants supplied to the Craft footprint. Which is a large % of eastern new england. I think they now have distro in VT via Catamount and even eastern NY & parts of CT. could be a dry thanksgiving fam.

    L. Knife is a bud house. Craft Boston and Seaboard are not they only sell craft brands (like Lagunitas, founders, new belgium, yuengling, Downeast cider and more) and at that they don’t sell the goose island and high end AB portfolio of beers. I used to work for Craft Boston, so speaking from what I used to stock and sell.
    L. Knife is the only one who carries all those products and they pick and choose at best what they do carry.
    Quality Beverage another distributor for Norfolk County and south of that carries Budweiser and the high end portfolio, they also push those brands as well thus they get variants. Where I live in Franklin, this area usually has variants.

    You live in Franklin and commute to Kingston!? Props for that. I’m actually moving to Franklin soon. Do you have favorite store in that area?

    Variants will be at Kappy's in Medford (first come first serve) and Liquor Junction in Woburn (unknown) on Friday.

    Also have a friend that works in the Newport area that purchased Fog and #4 from a local liquor store.

    I just moved from Franklin, the best you're going to find in town is Liquor World, in the area is Crafted in Holliston.

    Check out Union Liquors on Union St. though, especially if you're looking for BCBS. It's not a super crafty store, but they generally get a decent amount of BCBS and price it very competitively. I think I paid $12.99 for standard last year. If you're looking for IPA's there just make sure you check dates, they don't get a ton of turnover.

    The only thing about Village Mall is that they're super expensive, their liquor selection especially.

    To answer my own question, regular only. And at $20, I’ll pass.

    A friend grabbed me the basic set on his travels. I got regular, caramella, Kentucky fog, and #4. $14, $18, $25, and $25, respectively.

    I’m loving that stores aren’t waiting for Black Friday anymore. I nabbed a #4 and Caramella at my regular stops, no hunting or calling.

    I like this idea of a “Bud House”. Akin to a “russian bath” or Latvian “savusauna”. A bunch of bloated old redfaced steel workers and bricklayers just sitting around sweating in towels and putting down gallons of The King.
    ——

    any-who, I found a #4 at Bow Street in Portland.
    If anyone wants to trade a Kentucky Fog, lmk. I’m willing to go tea over coffee any day. happy thanksgiv all.

    Well Rhode Island isn't getting their BCS delivery until next week, confirmed with a few liquor store owners. Nikki's Liquors will get theirs during the next weekly distro delivery next Thursday.

    Didn’t think to double-check store hours, so I’m the first in line at least, but I have 2 hours to wait instead of 1 at Total Wine. Whoops.

    This is where that Munich Dunkel mini keg would have come in handy.

    Kind of did the same. Line at Gamestop was too long to get a ps5 when I got there.

    Headed to total wine as a consolation. Only one here as the moment.

    my understanding is a case of birthday in Natick, and unsure about the anniversary

    Liquor World in Sharon has Regular, #4, Kentucky Fog, and Caramella. I just put them out, 1pp on the variants. No limit on regular. First come, first serve

    Cheers!

    I'll be heading to TW later today. I ususally try to avoid going there - I prefer spending at the local shops, but since TW usually gets a pallet plus of regular, plus a good selection of varients, this one time I go there.

    Ordered from Yankee Spirits online. Regular, Caramella, #4 and Kentucky Fog. Simple process, only annoying thing is you have to buy two regular to get each of the variants, meaning 6 regular if you want all 3 variants...

    Any chance you make it to Burlington yet and could give a heads up? May run out there as well and I'll update if I don't hear anything else.
