Was hoping to find a coffee variant in West Springfield, but no dice.
I heard from a friend who went to table and vine this morning that they sold all their variants to their employees and were only selling regular 4 packs at the store. Sortof a weird move but I suppose with such a large store getting so little of something people are going to be asking about every 30 seconds like this that's a decent way to just rid yourself of a headache.
This years doesn't come in 4 packs so that's even weirder
bottles then. Whatever, just regular BCBS is the point
Yankee sold whatever varients they had in 2-3 minutes. However many they had, was able to get 2 regular bcbs. But!!!!! Got a tasting of some cellared stuff like 12 bcbs
So glad I made the trip up to Yankee in Sturbridge today. They had Regal and Coffee (limit 1 of one or the other), Regular (limit 2), plus they busted out a ton of limited bottles from the back. KBS, Avery, BA Framinghammer, to name a few. Plus they were pouring samples of random bottles, most notably A Deal With the Devil. They really pulled out all the stops.
Still plenty of regular 2015 at kappys Medford, I bought a case and the case was only $108
Any Coffee or Regal on cape or in SE?
Did anyone go to Redstone? It seemed like they had a really creative spin on this particular release. Plus the class that they sold tickets for seemed pretty cool. Anyone attend both?
They still have cases at wegmans in burlington 2 bottles per person. Burlington wine and spirits has barelywine and regular 1 per each
Hugh McNeil's in Malden has coffee and regular on tap, coffee is phenomenal.
at 11:00 Table and Vine was selling just BCBS, 2 per person at $9.99 each. They had 10+ cases left though
Atlas in Quincy has Reg
Also went to Hugh's today to avoid the riots at Foundry in Somerville tonight (which will be GREAT if you can get in, I'm sure) and thought it was an excellent experience. Coffee Stout was the real deal and the other dark beers on tap were solid offerings. IMO, Malden is developing some real chops with Hughs, Mystic Station, and Idle Hands moving in.
Still at work for probably another 2 hours.. anyone know of any variants in the 95/495 area?
I'm curious what people paid this year. All stores visited are in MA around the 93/128 area and a touch north toward the 93/495 area. For me the ranges were:
regular stout: 9.99 to 12.99
coffee: 9.99 to 14.95
barley: 9.99 to 14.95
regal rye: 29.99 to 29.99 (only one bottle to be had...)
Glad I didn't go to Table and Vine. Me and my finacee walked into Super Phipps in Westfield at 10:05 and walked out with two bottles of regular, one coffee, and one regal.
I saw regal rye at one place for.... $50.
HOLY SHIT! I thought 30 was outrageous.
As of 5pm there are still a bunch of bottles at Pemberton Farms in Somerville. Just the regular. 11.95
Agreed. Ferry Street Food and Drink is another great spot in Malden.
Any spotting of coffee in Brookline/Alston/Brighton?
Agreed, Yankee in Sturbridge did a great job. It appeared they only had 1 case each of Coffee and Regal, when those were gone they had vintage Coffee and Barleywine.
I got a coffee from Blachard's but had it reserved, otherwise no luck but I didn't knock myself out searching.
I saw regular as high as 19.99. Same for variants, except rue at 29.99.
Got Regal and Coffee from Palumbo's in Walpole. 1 each, $26 (I think) for Regal, $14 for coffee. They had regular at $14.95.
Also Sam's Wines on 1A in Walpole had the same mix, slightly less expensive. But they only had 6 each of the variants, and I got 1 of 'em at about 11 or so.
Regular: $9.99 and $11.99
BW: $11.99 and $14.99
Wollaston Supreme Liquors in Quincy had a few cases of Barleywine on the shelf as of 4pm today. $13 per, not sure on limit, no regular in sight though which was strange.
I found a store that only had the regular and was priced at $8.59, I bought the last six
That's surprising, I don't think the wholesalers sell to the stores for that little...
I got a case at Kappy's for $108 which is only slightly more per bottle.
Stores owned regular BCBS at $85/case. $7.08/btl.
Regular for 8.99-10.99
Coffee for 11.99-12.99
Regal for 19.99-24.99
Grabbed 2 Regular & 2 BW for 10.99 & 12.99 this AM with no hassle. Was a small spot on Rt 20 in Wayland
Saw priced this week as follows (most outside 495):
BCBS - $9-$13
BCBBW - $12-$17
BCBCS - $12-$24
BC Regal Rye - $19-$50 (as Kevincredible described above)
All over the board.
Grabbed a coffee from Village Mall Liquors in Franklin about an hour ago. I think it was the last one, but definitely worth checking out. I believe they still had regular. Coffee was a bit high at $16.
I had a tough day
Early morning Black Friday shopping had me in foxboro at 8am. Tried trader joes = no. Tried muckeys on 44= nope. Tried Pioppis in Plymouth.
" yeah, can you wait a bit? We are unloading the truck ." I hang in the store for 15 minutes. The clerk walks out with a bottle in his hands.
" is this what you are looking for?"
"How many bottles do you want?"
" just one, but if you have any of the variations, I am looking for those too"
" I just don't know the price and the woman who does won't be in for a 1/2 hour. She should be here by 10 and once I have the price in the system, we can give you a call."
Give him my name and phone number. Put up Chrismas lights, clean up the yard, clean out the garage. No call from Pioppis. Have more errands to run and figure I will stop by Pioppis. I see the clerk with whom I was talking with 3 hours earlier.
" can I get that bottle now?"
" um, no. We have a list and will raffle off what we have."
"Why didn't you tell me that 3 hours ago? You took me out of the hunt for this beer."
"Sorry , I didn't know. Do you want me to put your name in the list...."
Try 4 other store. No luck, very frustrating
Picked up a Coffee for $12 and a Barleywine for the same price in Somerville this morning.
Then headed to Foundry, got there around 4:45, they started cracking the Goose Island Coffees and tapping kegs around 5:15 pm.
No riots at all, not overly packed, had some bar seats with friends. Had two Regal Ryes on draft (absolutely delicious) and split a bottle of Coffee. Ordered my second Rye after 6, and we ordered three of them, so they were still going strong at that point. I left at 7 pm, not sure what was left at that point.
Then maybe it's a good thing I didn't get as far as asking if they had any BC left in stock.. went there after work a few hours ago, came up to the counter with a Lagunitas Cappuccino Stout, was asked to show my driver's license and was told they couldn't sell it to me since they don't accept out-of-state IDs. Now, I'd heard that this was a "law" in MA before, but it's never happened to me in the 5 months I've lived here so far.
It's funny - same thing happened to me. I'm 25, yet they said my license (RI) needed to be from 1988 or earlier. Luckily my mom was in the car so she had to come in and buy it. Weird shit.
