    You guys find a way to turn everything into a ton more pages than necessary and spirals into very offtopic arguments and coversation around here..

    I dunno I guess the moral Grey area doesn't bother me. In this exact situation, I would never hand over the tag for another beer without pointing it out to the clerk, even if the beer was on that shelf.
    If I were simply checking out and it rang up $12 I am not sure I would say anything. Now those people on their high horses can judge me as you wish for a hypothetical situation.

    Now we wanna discuss more about the retailers selling a 4 pack at $50+ and I would likely agree with it being called stealing.

    FWIW, I like BA. I like the people I've met from here. They are very generous and good people. You guys are passionate and energetic around here. And it's fun to promote cross-posting, etc across all communities. Not just RB and BA.

    I just never understand how topics just spiral and veer here so easily,

    I think it comes from the old site, which had the indented responses.

    Love popcorn. Love BCBS. That sounds like the worst pairing ever.

    Unless it's Garrett's caramel popcorn. That could actually work.

    Popcorn BCS? Where can I find that? Too bad there is no mention of Bourbon County in the Bourbon County Sightings thread. Someone should create a thread where a bunch of passionate people can share their honey holes of BCS! Idea!

    Thanks for your honesty. Let me know when you can drop in when i'm in the store, i'll buy you a beer at Goose and, if you're interested, i'll sell you a King Henry.

    Back to what the original thread is supposed to be about, I came across some more BCBS here in the far west burbs again for the low low price of $29.99/4-pack. This is about the 5th or 6th store out my way that I've seen BCBS for a rediculous price. Fuck all these stores! It sucks cuz I work and live so close to these price gouging cock suckers but fortunately I haven't been desperate enough to buy any from them and I won't. I have yet to pay more than $21.99/4-pack and I hope to keep that trend going.

    Oh then I should also probably mention the time I was in your store and I was honest about a particular beer/liquor/wine that I was getting undercharged on and I was honest about and paid full price....

    yeah I saw it yesterday for $29.99 also and told the guy I might come back if I can't find it for cheaper.

    That is awesome. For as many unethical people that are out there I always enjoy a story like this. When in doubt just put yourself in the other persons shoes and imagine if the same thing was going to be done to you. Plus if it's a store you really like don't you want them to succeed? Letting them knowingly lose lots of money just doesn't seem right to me. I guess to each there own though.

    Ahh but you see, what you did wasn't theft! It was just immoral, scummy, and stealing. But it was not theft!

    Nor was it stealing....

    I digress. If anyone in the city is still looking for BCBS, here are a few options:

    Gold Leaf Liquors - $26
    Miskas on Clark -$28
    Galleria on Southport - $29
    Miskas on Belmont - $30
    Foremost on Kedzie - $55

    Average prices for what is left seem to be climbing unfortunately, but it is still available.

    Yes, on tap at Durty Nellie's now. The keg of Gran Gas blew and they put BCS in it's place.
