    According to a Gold Coast Dist. rep, 20 cases are for Florida. However, they will not be managing it. Anyone with insight on where the 20 cases are going and/or what dist. is handling the account?

    Thanks.

    Wow, I was not expecting that. Would love to know what accounts are getting this in Miami-Dade.

    I just secured two 12oz bottles from a contact in MI. He said his store just got their supply and they were only selling each person 2 12oz bottles for $8.xx each. He is in Grand Rapids. They told him they may get a little bit more in on Thursday and they would sell the 4-packs whole at that point.

    If it's that limited in MI, I can only imagine what we will see down here.

    I thought Hopslam was 1/21 for down here, could be wrong though.

    It is for Georgia and South Carolina, so it can't be far behind if it isn't the same day.

    Did any Black Note actually see distribution south of Orlando?

    I haven't heard of any in Tampa yet. Supposedly JJ Taylor is holding it hostage. I had a bottle of this years and traded away the other 3, so I guess that may be about the best I'm going to do this year.

    Black note did make it to Orlando. I was told by a friend of mine it made it to TW on Thursday of last week and sold out in 3 hours. 4 pack for $25.

    So basically, they took all the Black Note that was supposed to go to southeast FL and distributed it to the rest of FL.

    Black Note did make it to Big C and Knightly on OBT. All gone though.

    Any word on if BA9K will make it here?
     
  33. BAstoutsNsours

    BAstoutsNsours Sep 21, 2012 Florida

    BA9K made it in keg form and so did Black Note (keg form), but no BA9K in bottles, that was brewery only.

    I dont think Black Note or Hopslam are down here. Or maybe I am not looking in the right places.

    Hopslam is but in extremely small quantities. Black Note I don't think so.

    Yeah, I got to try BA9K a couple different times, which was nice, but Orlando and Tampa had more Bells tap takeovers than us too. Bells must not have a great relationship with the Broward-Dade distributor.

    Haha with all the CCB releases you guys have been privy to last year, I'd argue that we'd need it down here more than y'all.
