    I was just assuming since last time they had a special tapping it kicked within 30 min. Thanks for editing. Just checked untappd and it seems to be on, which hopefully bodes well for tomorrows special tap when I am there. Fingers crossed

    Yeah my other thought was blackberry BCS?? Its the day of FOBAB, so you would think/hope the 2pm tap is something unique?

    I would assume those are each going to happen over the next three days. The bartender told me wheatwine was tomorrow’s and they are doing one per day.
    I just missed the cuvee :slight_frown:
    At least I’ll get some ghost tropic...

    Cheers to the 2 guys from Rhinegeist Italked to who are in for fobab.

    Bummer on the wheatwine tomorrow. I can still make the most of my pre fobab afternoon off (I am working/attending Saturday) After hitting up half acre for a pour of benthic tomorrow maybe instead now I will go check out the new clybourn brewhouse ...they have BCS 2016 base and barleywine on tap at least. Cheers everyone.

    Yeah they don’t really define “event” do they? Especially if other stores are getting some variants. In any case, I have to imagine the 10am start in Batavia will give some a chance to double up

    Definitely. I was hoping to get more details because I'm seriously considering sticking to the suburbs, but I don't want to get shut out of Prop or Reserve

    I’m going to have to talk with my local Jewel guy to get info on variant amounts and allotments. They probably don’t know specifics yet, but I’ll hopefully start the dialogue tomorrow. It’s tempting to just hit that up and be done with shopping a lot earlier, even if the allocation isn’t as big as Binny’s.

    Sams Club definitely gets regular BCBS. Each location varies with how many cases they get but I've never heard of any of them getting variants. I'm not holding my breath but maybe that will change this year. I've got a "Sams guy" and that's where I've gotten all my regular for the last 2 years. The bottles are also a buck or 2 cheaper than Binnys.

    Anyone know more about these Jewel Bourbon County events? Is it that they will have variants, and a snifter for the first 50 people that makes it an event? Will there be tastings? Will there be clowns? People would like to know.

    Last year there was nothing special except the snifter, and maybe they have more inventory of variants than other stores.

    I would ask someone, but I don't recall ever seeing an actual employee in the beer section at my Jewel. I kind of assume the shelves get stocked by elves overnight.

    Before people ask, it's an "event" store and I go about once a week, usually breezing through liquor.

    Just once we need a massive blizzard at 12:01am on Black Friday. Could you imagine if Binny's couldn't open for another day and all the line campers got totally screwed? Anyone driving from out of state couldn't make it in to the city. It would be glorious.

    On the topic of Jewel...they're apparently getting CBS in December, as well.

    If you had told me a couple years ago, while I was drinking my first and only glass of CBS (on tap at Binny's) that in 2017 people would be debating whether to buy beers like BCS and CBS from Binny's or Jewel, I'd have asked you where your delorean was.

    Last year the "event stores" had lots of extra staff on hand you walked up and they asked if you wanted a full allotment then passed you a pre filled carrier and you went to the register. Very quick

    Last year, you couldn't get 1 of each variant at jewel, correct? Or maybe limits varied by store? I forget....

    Has anyone been to the release at Binny’s on Grand? Wondering what time people start lining up and if they get many variants.

    only specific stores had all the variants. the way i read that announcement is that the 8 event stores will have the most on hand, but those with asterisks you'd assume have SOME of each variant. Seems like a crapshoot though at the non-event stores and I'm surprised Ashland is not one of the event stores after being one last year.

    So is it safe to say that if my neighborhood Jewel is not listed, they will not get any BCBS at all? I live by the Jewel on 53rd and Pulaski and I do not see it on the list.

    My friend thinks those wing zings are too salty, and I can eat a damn bucket to myself. I love them, and even if they just gave out a 6 piece for free I would go to this "event."
