    Any FW Sucaba or Parabola coming to Algonquin?

    Last April we got two cases of Sucuba, and I'll have to check on the Parabola to see what happened last year. Then as Sarah Palin might say- "and get that back to ya!".

    Anyone know if the buffalo grove or lake zurich stores have twitter feeds? I pass near both on my commute and need some options for the harder to find releases.

    Was just about to leave to pick some up. Thanks for saving me the trip from Elgin. I will see you on Monday then!

    Are store hours normal on Monday with President's Day?

    I see Jim is trying to put together a suburban keg tasting at the store, that sounds like a great idea! Hopefully it works out.

    Is there any word on whether or not Sprecher's hard root beer is making its way outside of the Cheddar Curtain?

    I was able to get a 4 pack each of BBB and PM around 5pm today. There was less than a case behind the front desk of each from what I saw. I'm not sure what else is in back though obviously.

    Buffalo Grove is @bgcraftbeer. They might have more than one but that's the one they gave me on the phone the other day.

    I have a list on my Twitter account with all the store feeds. Tomorrow I'll list them all on a new Great Lakes Thread- assuming they don't take it down as "pimping".

    Any CW PM left? If so, how much?
     
  29. beergurujr

    beergurujr Aspirant (230) Oct 27, 2003 Illinois

    About three cases of PM remain. As far as I can see, no Barleywine.

    For anyone in the Des Plaines, Niles, and Morton Grove area - 2 places with good selections right near me are the Binny's on Milwaukee Ave in Niles and Prestige Liquors in Des Plaines. I spent some time talking with the owner of Prestige on Monday and he told me he frequently gets in Bourbon County. Besides that, I found a really nice selection of bombers there, occasionally they get some BA Bigfoot (just ran out last week - damn!) and I know there are still several bottles of Goose Island Madame Rose on shelf. I'll provide updates for anyone interested on a weekly basis

    He frequently gets BCS? Something not quite right with that statement. I'll leave it there.

    I thought the same thing... He did have 2 bottles of BCS in stock when I was there Monday that he kept in back. Unfortunately I was out of money or I would have bought them. He told me he will get more so I will take the man at his word until he proves me wrong. We shall see...

    You are absolutely right. I misunderstood him when he said he gets it every fall but that he had some of the Madame Rose. My noob is showing :flushed:

    I rarely go there anymore because he tried charging like $10 for a KBS last year. Most of his prices are only slightly inflated, but some are crazy. The times I have been in there there was nobody that knew much of anything about anything. I remember being shocked they had such a good selection with no knowledge of beer. In their defense I haven't tried to talk about beer with any of them in a few years, so maybe they have educated themselves on their business.
