    Come on, remember who we're dealing with here. Kuhnhenns doesn't know if there's still bottles of BB4D left in the back somewhere! Last month as I recall there was a thread about it being sold out and then they "found" more buried/overlooked and then supposedly that sold out too recently. The long answer to the question is a definite possible maybe no :astonished:

    (it's still worth the stop in though for the DRIPA :grinning:)

    Didn't ask about the BB4D last night, but the DRIPA was out when we were in.

    They had a question from someone on their Facebook page in the last couple of days asking if there was any BB4D left. Their reply was "No, not for awhile." Take that to mean whatever you want.

    If you're going to stop, it won't hurt to ask.

    Talking to Bells folks, they said he was a 3rd shift production brewer.

    They're out of BB4D.. They ran out the Sunday before Memorial Day, the last case was for in-house conumption only. This was after running out the previous month and stumbling across another pallet of it.

    Truly it is possibly true. I think.

    Yeah - I was up there on Sunday before Memorial for a trade with an out of town BA. I had bought him a case a few weeks prior because I figured it would run out before he got into town. I was right, him and a guy across the bar had the last two bottles that were part of the final "in-house consumption."

    But hell, they did stumble upon a pallet last time this happened. I think they have a better feel for what they have after the last debacle and he said it'd be awhile.

    Probably means it's sitting in barrels for winter solstice release.

    They do have some in the barrels in the back, that I know.

    My boy just bought the last of what they had. The owner was happy to sell it, the guy ringing him up sure wasn't for some reason.

    As you can see no on really knows. I heard someone say they he was there last week and someone there just pulled one out of the back for him and he didn't even ask for it.
