    A shop in St. Clair Shores got three bottles of coffee this afternoon. I assume they are gone.

    Kent beverage got coffee and cherry in today but the quantities are so limited that it's a who you know thing at the bottle shops.

    Nice car seat. I can't tell you how many times I've taken a car seat photo like that when I'm excited to show my girlfriend my haul... she usually doesn't give a shit but pretends to care.

    My dad got a coffee tonight in Farmington Hills. I know some places in Wayne County had some last week, but this is the first I've heard of any shops in Oakland having any.

    Picked up 2 Coffee's and 1 cherry last week in Wayne county. It's out there. My bottle shop only got 4 bottles of cherry though. Glad I was one of the lucky ones

    International Beverage on East Paris in GR just posted on their Facebook that they'll be getting in BCBS variants and Black Note this week.

    Bailed form work for 20 minutes and got mine! They wouldn't say how much they got, only "enough to last about another hour". They had 3 Coffees and 1 Cherry on the counter when I got in there, but the guy was pulling more from under the counter.

    I just made it back and all that was left was coffee... I'm like half happy, does that make sense?

    Understandable, but there are other places in GR that still have some to sell. The game is afoot!

    Just got back from Smittys Specialty Bev, they had 4 bottles of cherry and coffee left when I got out of there about 30 minutes ago and international bev on east paris said there's will be in at 2, good luck everyone.

    I just sent my brother to Smitty's for me since I'm stuck at work. He got a Cherry and Coffee. It was right around the same time as TheBeerDad was there

    What were everyone's hauls today? I ended up with 4 Black Notes, 4 Coffees, and only 1 Cherry. A great day! Anyone end up with a large amount of Cherry Rye's that can help a brother out with another for the lady??

    Edit: I only bought 4 Coffees because of how sad I was that every place was out of Cherry when I got there. Except for Siciliano's this morning!

    Haha she likes to buy her own so she feels like she's contributing. I share ALL of my beers with her and she's really starting to appreciate good beers. Don't be jealous! ;)

    I ended up getting 4 Black Notes, 1 Coffee, and 1 Cherry over the past weekend. My wallet and I came to a compromise that I would moderate myself.

    I ended up with zero Cherry because InBev hates SE Mich.

    I got fairly lucky. Picked up a case of Black Note last week, and 2 coffee, 1 cherry, 1 Big John this week. My father in law also got a cherry at Siciliano's this morning.

    As far as I know, cherry rye came and went in Wayne county a couple weeks ago. I don't understand why Oakland is lagging behind this time. Makes no sense.

    I had to make the roadie to "The Kool G Rap" today for work (that's Grand Rapids to the uninitiated) so when I heard the variants were showing up, I thought maybe I'd hit the jackpot. I already have enough coffee, but am hot to trot for a Cherry or four. Closest I got was a dude who said he had some, but was afraid to sell them without his boss there, who he thought might be keeping them for himself. I am however, 24 Black Notes richer than when I woke up this morning, so no complaints here.

    I promised my wife that I'm on "special release beer" purchasing hiatus until KBS release. Was lucky to find a Coffee at Pauly's in Lowell on Monday night. They also had 2 Arcadia BA CK and 1 BA Impy Stout...half price from what I paid at Siciliano's last week. Score! In all over the last week, 2 Coffee, 1 Cherry, 4 BN, 3 BA CK, and 2 BA IS. Ouch.
