    LP Binnys sold out in an hour. SL Binnys lasted a day, with a 2 bottle limit.

    I hope I can find a 4 pack along the way.

    If you're willing to travel, I got a 4 pack at Evanston First Liquors last night. Gotta ask for it, they got a very small amount.

    I wasn't told about one. Last time I had to get bourbon county from them they mentioned it right away, so I assume not.

    Surprising, they seem to have a list for everything.

    Wow. I just made some calls and it sounds like this is flying off the shelves faster than BCBS!

    So I gathered. Last year appeared to be the opposite, at least from my experience.

    Update on Binny's Grand: For sure no list, one bottle limit per customer.

    I know it's outside Chicagoland, but limit 1 4-pack at Woodman's Kenosha. Was there late last night and they had quite a few cases behind the register.

    I have a bunch if anyone wants to do some trading. Shoot me a PM

    If anyone knows where this is available in the north or northwest burbs, please shoot me a message. Every Binny's I've called is either sold out or hasn't seen it yet. Just hoping to find a bottle so I can try it.

    SmallBar Division just tapped theirs, so guess that's where I'll be in an hour or so. Expecting to be disappointed -- that way maybe I'll actually be pleasantly surprised.

    Mmm, this is tasty. Lots of bourbon and a nice buttery aftertaste

    Side question: where does Founders get there barrels from for this? And their other barrel aged beers?

    I've searched around and can't find any info.

    But not for long! I just missed it, was two people in line behind the dude that got the last two. Hopefully it'll pop up elsewhere soon.

    Crud. Looks like I missed it this year.

    If anyone in Chicago wants to trade for 2012 KBS, BCBS, or Devil Dancer, I'm looking for a couple bottles.

    has anyone seen this in the city the last few days? i wonder if it was just a one time drop and there wont be another round

    It sounds like it's as scarce as 2012 KBS was. My local Binny's is only getting one case, so they'll be selling individual bottles.

    You're best bet would be smaller liquor stores off the beaten path.

    Berkot's are worth checking out for founders limited releases

    Or your parents' basement. Years from now, you might find a four pack down there. :)

    I don't know how they do it, but they always seem to get the foudners limited stuff. For a grocery store, i love their beer selection.
