    I called Total Wine in Tustin today and the guy said that it wasn't on his delivery sheet, whatever that means.

    call and beg and plead for them to hold or hide in the back. Depending who you talk to, sometimes they will agree.

    Bevmo in Norco/Corona/Moreno Valley each got a case today and have none left. On a side note I opened my first bottle tonight and it's everything I could have ever wanted and more. Bigfoot is my go to beer/daily drinker. When I throw parties bmc people high five when they see the keg and then rarely come back for a second glass. High bourbon tones/tastes, extremely balanced, smooth. Sampling it against a 2005, 2012 and 2013 Bigfoot.

    I got a few bottles from Whole Foods Huntington Beach @ 13.99. The guy opened the case up for me as they had just literally received the shipment so I am not sure what they have left.

    South Bay Liquor in Chula Vista is sitting on a few cases. $20 per, no limit. A little high, but I bought a couple since I'd probably spend the difference in fuel trying to chase this down.

    Yep - it's a solid barrel aged beer but nothing mind blowing in my opinion.

    I was in there today shopping and found a random bottle mixed in with all the other singles on the shelves. Not sure if somebody was trying to hide it for later or what but I of course grabbed it and bought it. Nice surprise to find today.

    Anything in the Pasadena/Glendale-ish area? I really don't want to go hunting for this, and don't think I should have to, but I haven't even seen the regular Bigfoot either. SN's distributor here is absolute horseshit.

    Oceanside got 60 bottles last week but Markstein, the distributor figured out they they got too much and took most of it back. I don;t know where it is getting re-distributed.
