    Ok I know its early but one of my favorite things every year is guessing what the 2 varient BCBS's will be this year. I know personally that I would like to see mint chochlate for one and I think that the prop if the last two years are anything to go on with be coconut something. So what do you think?

    As it's been over two years since I was last able to buy BCBS, I'd like the BCBS variant to be more BCBS.

    There's a maple variant in the works that they posted on their twitter a month or two ago.

    Due to a very unfortunate lack of corporate cross communication, pumpkin peach may have already been scrapped. That leaves me to believe wild cherry mango may be the next variant.

    or Peanut Butter.

    I'm not sure they got enough maple syrup barrels to do a bottled release (ala Prop), but if they did, I'd bet on that. I think the maple is just going to be a tap-only BCBS though (conjecture).

    The last two Props featured coconut heavily, so part of me wants to just say "something with coconut," but I doubt they'll make it 3 in a row.

    Also, they're apparently working on BCBS Rare 2.0 (not Pappy barrels, I don't think), so I wouldn't be surprised if that comes out at the end of the year.

    Since they won't sell it in my part of the state, why should I care?

    Way to early, plus I wish people would stop supporting ABinbev and give up buying BCBS of any kind. There are other options on the market just as good or better.

    Nah too delicious. Plus AB buying Goose was just good business on both sides. As long as quality doesnt drop their is no reason to stop buying Goose, Elysian, 10 Barrel, Founders or any other brewery that has sold all or a portion to one of the big guys.

    They had a Chili version at FOBAB a year or two ago.

    I think that was just a one or two barrel test batch for FOBAB

    I've heard this from a reliable source: It will be labeled Budweiser's BCBS.

    And the ratings take a nose dive. Much as I hate them I don't think they're that stupid.

    Near Peoria, the variants were available in 2011-2012, but dried up in 2013 & 2014. We still get a decent amount of the base. A while back I walked past cases of it at Super Liquors on War Memorial.( I already had a case)

    I just graduated from college in the area in May. The variants are available in that part of the state. I know for a fact that they made it to Bloomington Noraml as well as Peoria.

    No, they should actually do that so people would be pissed and refuse to buy it, then maybe it wouldn't sell out in a nano-second.
