    Whoa there. Don't go boarding up your windows, it's going to make it harder for us "toughs" to break in, lol.

    Did you get the tart side of the moon? Or will it be coming in the future? Anyone see it around anywhere else?

    I believe Downers Grove and Bloomingdale Binny's just stated they received it in as well: the Tart Side of the Moon

    Thanks for setting this up, good stuff. I was psyched with the Light The Lamp stuff. Also enjoyed the Brickstone APA, glad that they made the haul up this way.

    Awesome event, definitely enjoyed Light the Lamp offerings. I'll be popping in to the tap room for a brew during a Hawks game soon.

    I think you'd get a ton of interest in that.

    As soon as Gerrit gets a hold of me so we can do the first order, I'll tweet about it.

    Yes, Pipeworks is coming to Algonquin, soon. :)

    I'll gladly make the drive up from St. Charles for a Pipeworks tasting and to actually buy the stuff. I'm sure if my local Binny's ever got it, it would never see the shelves anyhow. Glad I drive a lot for work otherwise I'd never get any decent beer out here in central Kane County.

    Pipeworks should be coming within a couple weeks. I've communicated with Gerrit and we're waiting on beer being available same time as the delivery truck. Look for the Tweets! And hopefully Spiteful and 18th Street can piggyback out here as well.

    Hey, quick question, my wife and I made a quick run-through of the Algonquin store last week to try and get some Cantillon... didn't see any at all. I swear you used to carry this, no? Or am I thinking of the St. Charles location? Thanks.
     
  29. beergurujr

    Cantillon has been allocated to the top selling stores for some time now. Only about half or less of the Binny's stores get any nowadays.

    Guys, our new Beer Consultant Jeff will be the primary Tweeter going forward, so that I can devote more time to the nuts and bolts of the dept. He's a great beer dude! Ask for him next time you're in the store.
     
  34. beergurujr

    beergurujr Oct 27, 2003 Illinois

    Always wines being tasted out from 1 to 4. Grand Teton sixers being tasted out same time. Cheers!

    In case anyone is in search Algonquin had a few dayman glasses in the case. No beer though to go with it. Unique glass I must say.
