    Still waiting, this is much like the mysterious original BCBS release that came very late (with regard to the rest of the region/country) and in a much smaller quantity than other regions.

    I expect these will not be easy beers to get once they do eventually arrive.

    I've heard a few rumors to "why", such as Goose Island was pissed at L-knife (the distributor), but these are just rumors and Julios is still waiting too (and they are not part of L-knifes distribution).

    It would be nice to know the real story to what happened this year with MA and BCBS (as well as variants) but we will probably never find out.

    AB self distributes in Boston, are they pissed at themselves? Yes I know Knife distributes AB on the South Shore.

    Has anyone heard any news on this? The owner at the beer store I go to said that they aren't going to be distributed in MA.

    I saw someone in the bcbs sighting thread mention some place on the south shore had coffee. Not sure if it was legit

    Once again, Massachusetts is a month behind everyone else. I heard January release for cherry and coffee.

    Mass got normal BCBS on Black Friday (or at least the store near work did) but not the variants

    Yes, I mean that the variants were actually released on Black Friday by the brewery but MA hasn't even seen them yet. I was quoting in reference to "MA being a month behind", when in fact we've been more like 2 months behind on limited releases lately.

    Heard that we are getting both but the cherry will be very very tough, likely just a handful of bottles for most stores. Coffee should be a touch more plentiful. Thats just the gist from a few beer managers i talk to. I also sent out some emails to some random stores asking and only got a response from one of the four, so who knows.
