    I would add to this that in my experience last week some places use the 4pk as the limit so not overly hard to get 3 4pks if you did your homework.

    Washtenaw liquor store in ypsi has a few 4 packs left out of the two cases they got. Guys at counter were surprised how fast it was selling at 24.99. Said their cost was 21. No single bottles that I saw.

    That place seems pretty pricey across the board.

    I saw that today too. They seem to be priced high on just about everything. Shame, since they are pretty close to my house.

    Not trying to be a dick, but I love the irony between your avatar and you talking about the price of BCBS (owned by BMC, nonetheless).

    Algers Liquor in Grosse Pointe on Mack just east of Cadieux still has some. Not sure how much they have but I asked the counter dude and he said it wasn't selling. I did see it was $6.99 a bottle so that could be a factor. I got it at cost. :)

    Goodrich and Oades both have it now, limit 1 4 pack, 21.99 at Goodrich behind the counter need to ask for it; 24.99 at Oades I believe, they still had quite a bit.

    I paid that for one of my 4 packs, but the guy was holding if for me and I didnt know how much it was before. Even still in the grand scheme of things is 8 dollars really worth running around for? I dont think so.

    And 95% of the beer I drink is Michigan beer. Just because my Avatar suggests to everyone to drink the fabulous beer we have in our state, does not mean I should only be limited to that.

    No hard feelings. Just thought I'd point out the irony, that's all.
