    Does it make it to Madison or should I just forget about it?

    Its hard to say. It should. Especially this year that they are saying there is so much more available.

    I stopped in the Sendicks on capital in Pewaukee yesterday around 2pm and though they didn't have it, they took my name down and I actually just received a call from them saying they received some. Not sure if its still there. Also last night Sendicks on North ave in tosa had 3 cases and were selling them by the bottle.

    Anyways, coworker just returned from there and was told they received it today but it was gone in minutes.

    So I'm driving through Milwaukee tomorrow afternoon, is it even worth looking for? I'll probably just hit Discount and stock up on other stuff

    Seems like you might have better luck at Discount or anywhere else not around the East Side/Downtown/Riverwest area (as someone from not here, I really have to say that this city is amazingly spread out... should just make it all different, smaller towns instead...). I think Discount said they would have theirs tomorrow, but, who knows.

    Groppi had 2 open cases sitting back behind the deli with notes on each 4 pack. That's as close as I got to finding it.

    I got some at Elm Grove Liquors, 2 bottle limit. Discount had theirs today, not much left (heard case and a half?). All the Sendiks in the area are out. Woodman's in the Falls had a couple cases left but didn't think they were gonna last much longer.

    Discount still had some as of ~8pm. Not sure how much left yet. Happy I was able to snag some, but today didn't leave me much hope for being able to get any Coffee (if it does make it's way up this way...) At any rate, I feel like Ray's will be anyone that missed out's best bet at this point. See y'all there bright and early..

    Waukesha is claiming they are out. But im not sure i buy that because the dude with the glasses is always a prick nless he knows you very very well... its ridiculous. Last time we had a rare release i was told they were out and the guy next to him overheard and said, "just get him one" it was a buddy of his lol. Anyways, mke has better selection anyways maybe we can get some down there.

    Just picked up a 4pk at MKE Whole Foods for $19.99. There were a couple singles and 4pk's left when I bought them.

    Whole Foods on the East Side had some when I stopped in this afternoon around 3 or so. 1 4pk/customer limit @ 19.99 (21 or so after tax).

    Ha. I spend a boat load of money there and the guy that was working certainly recognizes me. I think he's even seen me chatting extensively with the liquor manager, who I have a very good relationship with. That said, that employee was a manure-head to me as well.

    I was in there yesterday and he offered me a 4pk, I turned it down since I got a 4pk there on Thursday. Normally they sell it by the bottle with a 2 bottle limit, this is the first year I have been able to get a 4pk there. He did say he only had a few left (case and a half was left Thursday night) and lots of people were calling/stopping in. He said he had a guy yesterday that tried to get two 4pks by saying his 12 year old son was a customer as well. I've never had a problem with him. I chat with him when I'm in there and he hooks me up sometimes. I do also spend a lot of money there as well though (generally stop in every Wed and Fri). He takes good care of his regulars, I don't know how you can be mad at that.

    MKE discount is way worse. I have never been able to get a release there and I have friends that can't get rare releases there either. I have never had an issue at Waukesha. Comparing selections, MKE might have a couple more beers, but nothing that stands out as a must go.

    Haha whats up xsists, haven't talked to you since DLD. Anyways, that dude with the glasses always seems annoyed with me when I'm in there, no matter how nice I try to talk to him, he just seems annoyed I'm asking him anything. I go there all the time too, and ask him questions from time to time, so he definitely knows me, but if its inconvenient for him to have to go in back, he'll just say he's sold out. He's done it before, and I was talking to a buddy of his, and his buddy called him on it, and he got me one, for the KBS release. Yeah man, I've seen him do similar to other guys I've seen in there. It's not like I'm some random. I spent a ton there too. Oh well, Otto's hooked me up, plus the guy is really personable there, he's a good dude to * with.

    Either this is coming in waves, or some stores were just slow to put it on the shelves. Found some at my local grocery store last night, and it certainly wasn't there on Sunday. Check your local Sentry stores with a liquor department.

    I would maybe call Otto's, but I wouldn't hold my breath on that one. Pretty sure Whole Foods is out, but then who knows if they have any any singles in the back.
