    Picked up an Oak Horizontal from Binny's yesterday for either $14.99 or $15.99. Old Horizontal was one of the first beers that got me into barleywines so I'm hoping I enjoy this one as much or more.

    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.

    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.

    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).

    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!
