    Wow, that's not too bad. I was thinking it was going to be more along the lines of Bolt Cutter. Good to know.

    for sure. Sierra Nevada's beers are always very reasonably priced. Love them for that.

    Well, that latest Ovila Quad doesn't quite fit that statement. Otherwise I agree with you.

    I found a 4 pack of Ovila Quad for 11.99! It had to be a mislabel or glitch though, because everywhere else seems to be charging over $20

    I got all mine now - the rest are all yours boys & girls!

    Sentyrz $14.99
    Surdyks $13.49 from me.
    Central Liquors $14.99

    Merwins on Broadway - She said she had 2 up at the counter, but when I got there they were regular Bigfoots.:angry:
    Good thing I was close by otherwise I might've got a little mad - 'cause I thought I made it clear about the 750 ml.

    Oh yeah...on my journey through NE Mpls, I stumbled upon 3 bottles of Darkness in a tiny little shop.
    Best part - $15.69!
    I took 2 and left one for some other lucky bastard.

    One lucky bastard got the hint & asked me where to find the Darkness.
    He's one happy BA, and I'm glad I could help!

    I'm also going to hook up OP on this one.

    BTY...
    Didn't mean to come off as being cocky or rude with that picture (although I can see now how some would take it that way).
    Just trying to spread the wealth with the sightings.
    Good hunting, there's a bunch of it out there if you work hard enough!

    Anybody see any around St. Paul or The NorthEastern parts of the cities? I'd like to score one bottle. I will be free to hunt tomorrow at 3:15.

    Certainly you posting a box of BA Bigfoot that you've acquired as the rest of come up with zero doesn't seem cocky or rude!

    But in reality nice job tracking it down. Bigfoot is my favorite beer beside Abrasive, and I doubt I'll find the BA version, enjoy! And I say that with no contempt! Tracking down the rare releases, or not being able to, is half the fun! Cheers!

    So MN got 36 cases and 1 individual tracked down a case - piecemeal?

    .....and then boasts about it on the web? Hmmmm.

    By the looks of that case of BA Bigfoot, it seems to me you were just breathing the fumes of the delivery truck. Are you sure you spoke to someone at the store, or did you just think you saw the truck there, too?

    Not even close Ungertaker....

    I called Sentyrz (thanks Douggo for the tip on Wednsday) when I got off work yesterday @3:15.
    Peter said they just came in. So when I got there @ 3:45, I just happened to be the first one.

    After that- well it doesn't take a rocket scientist to call the 5 liquor stores in the surrounding area and see if they just got shipment- or does it???

    The rest I got 1 at a time over the last 2 weeks.
    Think what you want....

    I did give up the 3 spots I got them from.
    What else do y'all want?

    Cheers!

    OK, I'll be the direct one: it's one thing to grab a dozen Darkness when there are 14K or 17K or whatever bottles. It's a whole different matter to sop up an entire case of something so limited.

    98% of the time if I see something super-limited on the shelf, I'll buy one & not deprive others of the chance to try it. And most of the people I know from Twin Cities would do the same.

    Consider: you probably kept a bunch of people who really wanted to try it from getting a shot at barrel-aged Bigfoot. I'm only midly interested, since I'm not crazy about Bigfoot itself, but if this was something I was crazy about, I'd be pissed someone was running around buying up 1/36th of the entire state's allotment.

    Think what you will.

    First off, there's 10 - not 12.
    Instead of whining- the smart ones did what I expected, and asked me to hook them up- which I will.
    That drops it to 6.
    Second, I PM'd the OP and told him that I would take care of him.
    Down to 5.
    I got 1 for my brother who is out of town, 'cause he's my bro.
    I also got one for a trade with an out of town BA.
    That leaves 3 for me. One for the near future & two for the cellar.
    Who knows, I might even end up trading one of those.

    And I have absolutely no problem with that.

    Whining? Perhaps dictionary.com should be your next stop. In case you missed it, I don't really care if I try BA Bigfoot or not.

    If you're really hooking a bunch of people up, good for you. At the least, it's really poor form to shout about how much of a supremely limited beer you've just gobbled up, while others are trying to land just one bottle. Kind of like getting the last Darkness wristband, then laughing & pointing at the guy behind you. Even if you give him a bottle later, it's still a jackass thing to do.

    Just don't post a picture bragging about your limited release haul next time.

    A lot of us won't get BA Bigfoot, and we don't need to see 10 bottles in your possession as a reminder.

    This. It's fine to chase/get it, just don't flaunt it in everyone's face. It's a junior high move. Be classier than that.

    Not a big deal guys, still an easily traded for beer if you missed out.

    Again nobody has to prove what they're doing with their brew but he's hooking myself up and several others. Thank you Lonewolfcry for posting all the stores that had it and for helping me out!

    I'm glad I could help you and some others on securing a bottle, but they majority of the replies hold true merit in their disgust of my first post.

    Obviously, in hindsight, I should've never posted the photo.
    It was a total rookie move & I truly apologize to anyone offended.
    That's not who I really am, but apparently I made a mistake in judgement.
    I then made matters worse when I got on the defensive, when people started to question my character.

    Again, my apologies...

    North Loop & Zipps said they should get it next week.
    If I happen to hear of any more in town, I'll let someone else know so they can post.

    That's what I'm talking about. Oftentimes, it seems the best way to get a few BAs together for a tasting is to start with a brawl.

    Hey, no big deal, everybody gets excited about their beer...& didn't mean to question your character. I reserve that for people around here I actually know. I just like to see good limited beer spread around, & that seems like what you're doing anyways (though not evident from that first picture).

    One day we'll meet in a bar & hopefully have a loud argument. That's a lot more fun that doing it over the Interwebs.
