    I'm sorry to report that it has come and gone the past two weeks from everywhere I have seen in Chicago and the 'burbs. Limit one @$12.99 each everywhere, but was able to snag a second one thanks to @tiffman (great neighbor and drinking buddy).

    Fortunately I live downstate and don't think it's hit yet. Will have to do some checking...

    I noticed the Boulevard website lists this as 14.6% ABV, but the bottles I bought say 14%. Anyone know the reason for the discrepancy? Perhaps @TheJermis?

    The label is the correct ABV. I'll fix it on our website right now. Thanks for the heads up.

    Hey @TheJermis, any chance at a second drop of this stuff? Apparently very little hit Louisville and was gone within a few days. I didn't get any :(

    I can't confirm 100%, but I'd say it's highly doubtful. Even in Kansas City, most of our limited release beers are a one-time drop. You might seek out draft.

    I guess I didn't expect this to be so limited since some of the other smokestack beers are still available :confused:

    Any idea who handles distribution in Kentucky? I gotta see who has a keg!

    As an ex Kansans Citian, I have loved your beer and have since '93. Your responsiveness on here just makes me love you guys even more.

    Now if I could get a regular supply of Unfiltered Wheat in Detroit.......

    Just kidding with the dig, I know that American Wheat Ale market is saturated, but damn I love that beer. I cleared outa few shops single shelves when they broke up some Boulevard mix 12's

    I just heard back from from one of our beer distribution coordinators and I'm sorry, but Rye on Rye on Rye will not be available in your area.

    That's unfortunate as I was looking forward to it for some time. Does that apply to North Jersey as well, as I live pretty close to the border.
    Thanks

    From the booziest beer thread:
    I took that as a very positive comment and I believe he did as well.

    Just to confirm, yes. Rye on rye on rye is absolutely delicious. The tour guide at Boulevard jokingly called it a session whiskey, but it's pretty darn true. It sips smooth with a good rye whiskey presence. It may not be the rarest bottle in my cellar, but it is certainly one of my favorites.

    By the way, do you know whether the original and final gravity numbers listed on your website are accurate for this year's release? I'm a bit OCD with calorie counting, and I use that info to approximate calories and carbs.

    TheJermis Aspirant (229) Dec 20, 2005 Missouri

    Not necessarily as those are completely separate distributors. Honestly, your best bet is to give your favorite local beer spots a call to see if they know if/when they'll receive Rye on Rye on Rye.

    Yep. It's the same as what's on the lab analysis spreadsheet.

    I love Rye on Rye, super wanted to try this one last year but knew being draft only I probably wouldn't see it around here in southern Illinois. Ive been looking for the bottled version, but no luck yet. I'll be in St. Louis in a couple weeks, maybe I'll get lucky and there'll be a bottle left at one of the stores I visit.

    Plenty sitting on the shelves throughout Washington State and Oregon. Shouldn't be a problem to find for a few months around these parts. Just doesn't seem to be moving compared to the Midwest, which is understandable.

    Visiting family in SW MO and found a pretty decent stash of this. Will be bringing a few bottles back home to Detroit.

    I'm a little annoyed I didn't bother having any of my KC friends grab me a bottle. I assumed that it would hit Michigan now that Boulevard is distributed here, but the longer it goes, the more skeptical I am that it will hit here (if I didn't miss it already).

    Oh well. Guess I'll keep my eye out for it on draft. That's how I got to sample the first batch.

    Holiday Market in Royal Oak has it, as does my local in South Lyon, so I imagine should be available in Ann Arbor, Brighton, etc. Just picked up my second bottle on Friday.

    How far downstate? I haven't seen it yet in Marion/Carbondale, but I'm optimistic after seeing this.

    Our distributor, Schott, in Rochester MN seems to handle Boulevard very poorly these days. Randomly will pop up with fresh regular lineup, but Smokestack bottles have been non existent since Funkier Pumpkin. No collaboration #6, RoRoR, or SoS.
