    Our esteemed Bell's distro here in McHenry County uh, for whatever reason, is not getting Black Note. I hope that's wrong info I got. We're just two blocks from the Kane County line. #accident #of #geography.

    Anyway, how's my Twitter feed working for you?

    Bell's Hopslam just waddled in the door. 30 cases is all; one 6 pack per customer. See Customer Service Desk or Chris. That is all. Cheers!

    I wish the skokie/Niles/des plaines binnys were better. They are closer to home, but Algonquin is close to work. Good thread

    It's great to have instant info! I popped in yesterday for a few things that I saw you mention on Twitter.

    Agreed, the twitter feed is fantastic. My wallet disagrees with me though.

    Tomorrow I am back in store after being away for three days. I'll tweet what's new and what's left, that I might have missed by my second hand reporting.

    Quick question, did I miss BA bigfoot or has it not made it out to this area yet?

    No info on BA Bigfoot dude. I doubt that will be out this way.

    In better news, we now are stocking kegs from a new keg-only local brewery- Church Street Brewing, of west suburban Itasca. All well made, clean beers. An 80 IBU IPA, a scottish ale, and a pale lager.

    Anybody check out the DFH 75 min? Know how many they got and how much they are?

    Are you guys absolutely not getting any Central Waters BBBW and/or Peruvian Morning? Or is it just not in yet?

    Thanks beer guy. I looked again and found the tweet. I live halfway between Rockford and Iowa. Will be coming to Rosemont for the motorcycle show on 2/8. Will stop by afterwards. Hope there is plenty left. (And I'll visit the humidor for a few sticks).

    Did not see your post until now. Already stopped by there only to be disappointed! I have a buddy in Kenosha who is holding a few 4 packs for me along with some cherry stout to trade for last years

    Today is my birthday and I took the day off to spend with my lovely bride. But I will check this afternoon with Chris at the store to see what's up with the CW BA stuff, and whatever else. Cheers!

    No worries man it is on my way home from work on Friday-Sunday so it wasnt out of the way. Picked some random stuff up anyway.

    Hopefully it comes in on Friday since that is when I can make it there next. Would be nice to have a good amount there so I do not worry.
