    So where the hell is this stuff?!? I've asked numerous people at different beer spots, grocery stores, etc. and nobody has a clue as to whether or not this is coming. GI stated a "week of Nov. 27th release" for WA, OR, CA, etc.Well, today as we all know is the 27th and I can't seem to see or hear about any BCBS.

    Does ANYONE have information on this? Perhaps I should just e-mail GI.

    Cheers,
    Ryan

    PS - I LOVE BCBS. Someone please point me in its direction...

    ditto, any info is greatly appreciated. Need some more BCBS, down to 1 left of the 2008.

    Bottleshops typically get their Budweiser shipments Wednesday and Friday. Patience.

    I bet you never thought you'd call crown for information on deliveries did you? ;)

    The info I was given (for Oregon) was that they were re-introducing the year round 6pks like IPA, Honkers, Wit, etc, and if those sold well they would begin bringing in BCBS and other specialty stuff. In other words, we'll probably probably never see it, because who the fuck is going to buy a $9 6pk of GI Wit or Honkers when there's 200 other fresher, local choices sitting right next to them?

    edit: I'm also kind of pissed off that Goose Island would put out a press release announcing the release, but didn't bother to put out a press release announcing that it wouldn't be coming any time soon. That leaves me in the unpleasant position of having to tell people that it won't be here any time soon, and listening to them tell me I'm a moron because "GI announced it was going to come the week of 11/27." At last count, I've answered 14 emails and 5 phone calls about this shit in the last 2 days.

    I love Goose Island's response to their ridiculous supply issues in the great lakes region - ship to more states!

    Hope we see it, but it's gotten so damn annoying to get this beer in the region it's produced that they should really probably rethink their model.

    I've seen multiple posts about cases upon cases sitting in stores in the Mid West.

    I only want 1 case :(

    I can assure you this is not the case in Chicago/Wisconsin - This was the case 3 years ago, but this beer is significantly harder to obtain than say The Abyss is here. Don't even get me started on Coffee/Vanilla/etc - those are gone in MINUTES!

    Supposed to be here, on the shelves, by next week from a couple of bottleshop owners I've talked to.

    This was true until this year, with last year being the pinnacle of BCBS madness. I just moved from Chicago - buying one bottle of BCBS at a time fucking sucks, lemme tell ya. ;-) This year seems to be different, granted I'm not there. But last year, BCBS fer damn sure didn't make it into chain grocery stores and Walgreen's (ha!). I had a buddy visit Chicago this past weekend and he got a 4-pack...it still blows my mind. :)

    As for the variants, that shit is just bananas...

    I've been told by my Inbev guy that we aren't seeing any BCBS. I asked him if that was just Pierce County and he told me no, that's the entire state.

    This is confirmed with my Olympic Distributor friend. Found it to be funny that he was unaware of the GI press release stating that it actually was going to be distributed here.

    ISO Multiple BCBS!

    Morgan at Beer Junction responded to a FB post recently saying that he was hoping it'd hit next week. I don't know if he knows something we don't or if he's still under the false impression (like the rest of us) that it is coming.

    Crossing my fingers. It's amazing how little some of these guys know about their product. Should have seen my hair pulling moment trying to explain to a Sierra Nevada distributor what Narwhal was....a month after its release. Aye carumba

    Chuck has Honker's, Matilda, and IPA on tap right now, and was under the impression he would be getting multiple cases.

    My guy is sitting here right this second saying no go for the state. Again, I hope he's wrong, but it doesn't look good.

    Is the latter based on the former?

    I can't vouch for the midwest, but this is definitely not the case on the East Coast either (as demonstrated by the numerous "where can I find BCBS" threads in the Mid Atlantic and NorthEast forums). So far I've found exactly one store that had any (a DC whole foods store, selling 4 packs for $23 a pop - which out here is a considered a DEAL). I've "heard" of other stores that got some in, but the allocations seem to be so small, it was practically guaranteed they would run out before I would be able to get over there (so I didn't even bother to try).

    By comparison, obtaining bottles of the Abyss this year has been an absolute piece of cake.

    He said he should be getting some before he got the kegs. He has been wrong before though, as have the distributors.

    Looks like at least another week for FW 16. Bombers are probably gonna be over 20 bucks.

    Where has this been spotted - I've been in a few spots that had an abundance of 15 last year and saw nothing.

    You southerners have plenty of bottle shops though. Keep away from special brews or else ;)

    On a side note, does anyone know when Ivan is supposed to hit WA? Sounds like it's other places in the country already.

    Way to thread-jack Hollis! I was actually wondering this same thing. As the OP i'd like to open this up to be about any BA Imperial Stouts that should be here already and aren't!!!

    Ivan is here already. Was at total wine on Sunday i think and Whole foods yesterday. What about barley wines, does that keep with the theme of the thread? Any one know when MOAS will be here. i've been hearing this week or next. But only the top 20 pelican sellers will get some. So I've been looking out for it

    Sounds like they're still taking phone orders for MoaS. I'd guess end of the week whatever is left will go out after. Pure speculation though, but makes sense to not trim their margin on more than they have too. MoaS release thread had a guy that just called in getting a case.
