    Cool! Yeah I went your store on Tuesday and it appeared to be out too. Kicking myself for not buying some in DSM this weekend :-)

    Backwoods should have been order-able yesterday but it was still locked on the distributor's end. Should be in next Tuesday at the latest for us.

    I was running errands at VP and stopped by last night, it was already gone.

    I'll stop by around lunch, any idea how much the store is expecting?

    I'm fairly confident it will last at least a week.

    In a week or two the entire state of Nebraska will see a whole 10 cases of BA Narwhal...So good luck on that one.

    Backus should hit soon.

    It released today in Bend and Portland at the brewpubs. Seattle tends to get it right before Thanksgiving. Probably early to mid December for the midwest.

    BrettHead Initiate (0) Sep 18, 2010 Nebraska

    Only thing I can add is that NE is slated to get 100 cases so it should be readily available

    Abyss still sells out immediately out here. Everything else is easy to find, but that damn beer is gone day one.

    Good luck, Nebraska.

    BrettHead Initiate (0) Sep 18, 2010 Nebraska

    Not sure how much we got last year but I am pretty sure it wasn't 100 cases, and it was around for a bit :slight_smile:

    I am surprised actually at how much of their limited beer we get. Now if only I could say the same thing about GI.

    fds Initiate (76) Aug 17, 2013 Nebraska

    Yeah, Abyss went a little faster last year but I frequently see their other wax-dipped offerings sitting on the shelves of our grocery stores months after release. Glad to know I won't have to dip out around lunch-time to snag any this year.

    As my garage fridge is slowly cleared of the backlog of Fall seasonals, has the SN Winter Pack hit here yet? Wanted to try the Coffee Stout and haven't had any SNPA in awhile, so looking forward to that one. I'd hope Costco would carry it but they still seem to have quite the backlog of the Fall sampler.

    Jason, just saw that Free State is leaving already, is that effective immediately? Would like to try Backus and Mac's at least once.

    Abyss and Black Butte Anniversary are really the only ones that fly off the shelves, and BB is still pretty easy to find. Maybe Dissident...

    Welcome to the world of shelf turds. You thought they were golden sea mammals, but in reality... it's just beer.

    They're LEAVING NE?! Not if I buy up all their Backus they wont
     
  24. BrettHead

    BrettHead Initiate (0) Sep 18, 2010 Nebraska

    I just heard about Free State yesterday (not from the source either but the people who told me should know what they are talking about) but I imagine this means we won't see Backus at all. Hopefully that isn't the case.

    Winter Packs are in the warehouse but JBROS won't sell them until they move through more Fall packs :confused:

    Heard a rumor about some draft CBS coming to Omaha. Yes, I was told CBS. While it has only been bottled once, like all Backstage Series beers it started life as a draft only beer that is pretty much only found at the taproom.

    I hear Oskar Blues will be signing a deal any day now.

    So according to the Hy-Vee on 180th and Q, they will be getting 5 cases of regular BCBS and no variants of any kind. They said it would be this way for all of Nebraska, is this true anyone know? if so that is very frustrating

    Last thing I heard was only regular BCBS for NE.

    If the CBS thing happens (I'm skeptical too), I got the sense we are talking several months from now, not this year.

    but the BCBS thing is insane, will Iowa be getting any variants does anyone know?
     
  36. ElJosharino

    ElJosharino Initiate (198) May 3, 2013 Nebraska

    BCBS is whatever. Maybe the variants will trickle in later on like they did last year. I'm honestly more curious as to if/when the sisters will be showing up. I think it was right around this time last year.
     
  37. neckbeardnation22

    neckbeardnation22 Initiate (0) Mar 5, 2014 Maryland

    are the sisters going to be a regular thing? I was under the impression it was a one off

    also madame rose dropped in omaha a few weeks ago, solid beer but hard to justify the 26.99 price tag

    Juliet and Lolita have been released yearly since at least 2009. Gillian and Halia had their first run last year.

    I just answered my own question, though, thanks to popular search engine Google. Looks like none of those are on their calendar this year. Hopefully that just means they're not ready yet and not that they've been discontinued.

    Not yearly, but close. They each take 1.5ish years so they move around as far as season they are released.
