    Is there any official word on whether or not this will hit distribution/amount produced?

    all they've said so far is "will start shipping to other areas this week"

    Thanks, I appreciate the info. Outside of Bell's distro anyways, but the fourpack makes this mini-whale seem attainable all of a sudden. I guess mine will be another in the flood of ISO: Black Note threads

    This is why I didn't believe at first ... I thought they said they'd never go the 4pk route. So totally WANT this beer!

    Was just at the Eccentric Cafe and Larry was at the bar. He said that Ann Arbor should have seen distribution today. Tiffany's, Drakes, and Bacchus in Kalamazoo do not have it, and as of calling them tonight, none were aware of the 4 packs yet. The Black Note Secret Society has kept this under hat very nicely. Also called my local Indiana distributor. Somewhere between 8-10 cases for all of Northern Indiana, not for sure when they will hit.

    If it hits Indiana, that's the bad part. I can see the "Limit one bottle per customer" sign from a mile away.

    Hey y'all - I'd be willing to trade a 4-pack of Deschutes/Hair of the Dog collaboration Collage for 4 of these bad boys.. The collage is $11 for a 12 oz bottle out here in Seattle.. Unfortunately we don't get Bell's.

    I'm just curious. What are thoughts on doing a brewery only, limited release of larger format bottles on Black Note ....and then suddenly doing a surprise wider distribution of four packs shortly thereafter at lower price point ?

    I think it really sticks it to the locals and those who were able to travel for such an event while spreading the love to the masses (or others). Kind of Robin Hoodish...without the principles.

    Edit: FWIW I'm in neither group yet but if I were...I'd be one of the poor to benefit from this racket :p

    You traded $4$ for what is, at best, a comparably scarce beer? I guess it's true - angels do exist.
