    I've only caught it on draft so far. Are we supposed to be getting bottles too? Hopefully they hit Charlotte.

    I wasn't really sure. Did you get the draft recently or was it from the previous release? I know kegs have come in the past, and would figure we would get some this time as well. I know we have been getting hopslam for years (Which should come this week?) and can't imagine many other states sell more bell's beers.

    Duckworth's is a pretty cool place. I was passing through Charlotte one time a year or so ago and they had Mint Chocolate Peoples Porter on Cask. It was delicious! I haven't had Black Note in over a year, keep me in the loop if you hear anything.

    Will do, and please do the same for me in your neck of the woods. Someone from our group will be able to get a bottle:)

    We had it at Raleigh/North Hills WoB's 1st Anniversary Party. I also had it at Sam's Quick Shop several months back as part of a Bell's tap takeover.

    I think your going to see some package of this, but we're talking REALLY slim allotments! It's going to be a "ghost" in the package form!

    I don't foresee that beer being available here anytime soon. I called the Bell's Brew store in Kalamazoo and they have it there, but going fast.

    I think we will see this when we see hopslam, and I think it is going to be extremely limited. Crossing my fingers for next week.

    I'd bet real money that NC is getting some since other states in the region did, and yes its on the Hopslam trucks and yes its very small quantities. I

    Fwiw, I've heard the allotment for the entire triangle is ridiculously small. So small that I bet the entire state of NC gets 12 or less cases.

    I guess other than maybe Sam's we'll be seeing two bottle limits (if we're lucky to see anything). I'd pick one up for sure, but I won't be sad if I don't get to try it. I'm feeling very content after all of the goodness that was at the Raleigh Rare & Vintage festival.

    I'm actually more anticipating Hopslam. I know the new Rye made it hear at the end of the week. That had me wondering if Hopslam and Black Note were on the same truck and just being held back by Tryon.

    The stored in Orlando got some today. Might not be helpful but you would think FL would get it after NC.

    Apparently 16 cases for all of NC. Heard word of deliveries in 2 different markets today, but no deets on which stores. Good luck everyone, sounds like we'll all need some!

    EDIT: Make that 3 markets.

    City Beverage got 1 case. If 16 cases is on target this will be in and out before can blink.

    Heard the same from another source. Would guess similar amount in the RDU market. A LOT of good stores in the area are likely to get shut out.

    So out of the "14 Cases" in NC only one store has sold any so far, is what we are getting at here? Were the bottles at City Bev of the 12oz or the 750ml variety?

    At least one bottle shop in the Charlotte area started selling theirs yesterday. And they will all be 12 oz bottles.

    correctomundo, They got 1 case (24 X12 oz.). And as I understand it, they had 4 times that many people on "the list". GL
