    Pick one. Liquor Barns in Louisville and Lexington will have the largest selections, but you won't be finding forgotten variants in those towns, so what you get on Black Friday will probably be what you score.

    @IMFletcher is correct for Louisville. There's allegedly a good amount of variants available, but you're not likely to find any hiding out after the fact. If you line up at Liquor Barn you'll get your full allotment. Google liquor stores in Louisville and many are getting the variants this year, but LB will have the most.

    I appreciate the information. I noticed in some areas there are a bunch of Liquor Barns, Total Wines, Party Marts and Whole Foods. Is it possible to hit several different stores for different allotments or will it most likely be gone by the time you finish at the first?

    You'd probably have a shot to get something at multiple locations (not sure of allotments or what we're getting less of), but you'd need to be toward the front of the line in your first stop and plan your next location to be nearby. In Louisville, I'd suggest getting in line early at Liquor Barn Springhurst->shooting over to Total Wine in the Paddock shops. Whole Foods probably won't be real reliable for anything at all here. I'd also suggest places like Cox's, Evergreen Liquors, Party Outlet, Liquor World...basically start early at one of the big boys like TW, Part Mart, Liquor Barn, and then run around.

    If you are in Lexington over the weekend, go to Ethereal Brewing Saturday. They have new tap-only variants of their BA stout, Baba Yaga, which was as good as BCBS last year.

    Also it looks like Louisville is getting coffee barleywine, Lexington isn’t getting that variant from what I’ve seen.

    Hi Folks - any idea where in Lexington will have BCBS on draft?

    Planning on going to Ethereal on Saturday as well, but would love some BCBS draft today. Any ideas?

    Not sure, really. I'd check Untappd, and www.lexbeerscene.com
