Are you being serious? Also, who in the hell needs 600+ bottles of BCBS?
At $7.99 a bottle, it is most definitely someone reselling them for a profit.
Haha that's some funny shit.
ISO: Prop, VR, Rare FT: 599 BCBS 2015
Holy mother of god, 600 bottles of BCBS, that man needs to be put down.
Uptown Market and Liquor on Telegraph in Oakland had Coffee and Rye on Wednesday. 1 bottle limit. Regular BCBS no limit. I got my one bottle of coffee (rye=yuck for me) and called back Friday to see if there was any left and he told me the rest of the coffee went within the hour I was there on Wednesday.
I bet who ever that was has a liquor store of his own and will be selling them for 15 bucks a bottle throught out the year.
Which east bay grocery store? Thanks!
My thoughts exactly.
Lets find out that guys Liquor store and boycott it
Not sure on quantity received but had my girl swing by Bevmo in Murrieta a few minutes after they opened. Was in and out in a few minutes. All they had was the regular, $11.99 a bottle, limit of 2. No other purchasing catches.
Went by liquor depot in Temecula later on around 3 pm.
Owner said they got 1 case of coffee and 1 case of regular. Coffee was gone shortly after opening. Picked up a bottle of regular for 14.99. 3 bottles was good enough for me, I wasn't going to hunt down anywhere else. I know an employee at the Barons in Wildomar who claimed they didn't get any.
After liquor depot I met some friends at Killarney's in Temecula for a Black Friday tap release they were doing. Wasn't crowded at all. 4 oz flights for $13 and 10 oz pours not sure the price on those.
- BCBS 2013
- Firestone Parabola 2012
- Deschutes Abyss 2014
- Hangar 24 Pugachev's Cobra 2012
I'm sure they still have some left I'd hit it up if you guys are in the area. Rare opportunity to catch those 4 on tap at the same place.
Hey McDuck, isn't it hard to roll around in 600 bottles of beer?
My local Safeway here in the sticks got reg, and I'm guessing sold out yesterday.. Hit my local go to spot and all they got was reg, still had 4 bottles & I got 2. 9.99$ea
WF Marina Del Rey still had regular and barleywine as of 12PM today. Not out on the shelves. Ask for it and they will grab it for you from behind the cheese counter
Why? Costco is a wholesaler and businesses buy pallets of stuff to re sale all the time and this isn't any different. He wasn't a beer advocate just a business owner doing business.
Safeway in east bay has regular out 9.99 each or if you get 6 $9 each. Plenty available (got my 6 pack in Alamo)
This is the most likely scenario. No beer nerd would spend that much money on any one beer. Think of how many different beers you could tick for $4,800
I know this won't dissuade folks from chilling on paying outrageous prices for this beer, but hopefully this pic, which is of Goose Island's Barrel Warehouse, puts things in perspective. I know demand is outrageously high, but it's not a limited product by any means.
As long as demand outweighs supply, it is exactly a limited product.
Yes, I understand that's how economics works. Just pointing out that there's a lot of it made (more so than any other barrel-aged stout).
From what I understand there are the Costco business centers for folks reselling, unlike the regular Costco which generally is not carrying goods for resell.
At the end of the day, it's a total Dick move to clear out all the bcbs from a store at opening. No way around that.
Most business owners/workers do buy and resell items. They do have to sign a slip to do so though, and it doesn't include the resell of alcohol.
Ex Costco employee checking in.
Also I talked to a lot of the total wines, most are getting in another shipment in a week! Cheers
Saw BCBS at a store in Fontana, $15.99 a bottle. Is this high from what others are paying?
Fully agree, if I see it buy it, besides that I don't drive around looking for beer. I work as a delivery driver for AB and last year I went out with about 20+ cases of BCBS, two guys found out I had some on my truck and they followed me around, taking pictures, and they said Black Friday would be spent following my route.
i went to pasadena whole foods at 2:30 AM and was 9th in line. They let us in around 7:15 and then started selling at 8. Looked like they had at LEAST two cases of rare. only 1 case of coffee and 1 case of regal though.
limits were (while supplies lasted) 3 BCBS, 2 Barleywine, 1 Regal, 1 Coffee, 1 Rare. Being 9th in line i was able to get all.
While I get where you are coming from, Costco doesn't get off free here IMO. A bottle limit could have prevented this and allowed more Costco members to have a chance at purchasing some.
Check your local Ralph's guys. Happened to be there buying milk this afternoon and saw 2 and a half cases of regular BCBS on display at 9.99 each with no limits. Was planning on skipping it all this year but felt like I had to buy at least one bottle. This Ralph's is not particularly known for its craft beer selection.
So, anyone try this year's regular?
This is the first year it's been noticeably different. The bourbon is way more pronounced, thinner(not thin, just not as viscous) mouthfeel and a little fizzier. Interesting.
I had 2014 vs 2015 on tap and they were very similar to me.
2015 bcbs regular at Sunset Beer Company in Echo Park, CA
Went there tonight and they still had about half a case
Anyone know where I can still get my hands on one or two coffee BCBSes around OC? I got some regular BCBS but none of the places I went to had the coffee variant.
Why should they care? As long as all the beer is paid for, it makes no difference to Ralph's or Costco if a lot of people get pissed off. Most people won't hold grudges, and still shop at those places.
I think these things will settle out in the long run, and the amount of effort to procure all that BCBS will result in little payouts for people that got it.
Did anybody buy the Rare?
I'm probably going to get shit flinged at me for this, but I was able to literally get my hands on it, and then I left it at the counter. It was $79.99 - I had thought it was going to be closer to $60. I just couldn't. Walked away with one of each of the other variants including reg. instead.
How much did any CA peeps pay for your Rare? This was at a small organic market chain.
Anyone know of anything left in the OC area? On tap anywhere too?
Any one go to the city beer event? First year I miss it
Edit: I miss those 4 packs
Enforcing a bottle limit at a place like Costco would be next to impossible OR would take Costco dedicating personnel resources in a way they usually don't and probably wouldn't even want to deal with, especially on a day like Black Friday.
After a conversation I had with a liquor store, it's gotta be one of them. They are trying to accumulate and resell. The local stores in OC who still have it want $20 for regular. That crap pisses me off. They're basically trying to shut out the locals and control the prices.
