    Has anyone heard word about the impending Nov. 26 release of BCBS in KY, as stated by the Chicago news article?

    Only that BCBS is supposed to be released in KY on Nov 26. Relax. It'll be here.

    If you're not already doing it, you may want to ask your local bottle shop what day (days) they get beer deliveries and then make sure you visit them on that day (those days) every single week. I happen to know my local shop gets deliveries on Tuesdays and Fridays. I freaking HAUNT that place on Tuesdays and Fridays. NOTHING gets by me there (least of all BCBS). :)

    I just called Liquor Barns on Fern Valley and Hurstbourne and neither of the people I talked to seemed to be familiar with it but said they did not have it.

    +1 to this question. Has anyone been over there to validate? Also curious to know if the Coffee and Cherry Rye are making an appearance....

    Party Source would get different distribution from Kentucky as a whole. So, it's no surprise it has something most of the state gets later this week.

    any updates...Ill check Kroger tonight.

    Does Kroger carry Bourbon County?

    That would be shocking if they did. I'm surprised Liquor Barn hasn't received any yet.

    Once it hits, I won't be surprised if its in AB-Inbev powerhouses like LB or beverage warehouse.

    LB locations in Lexington did today. Limit of one four-pack.

    All of them? When?

    I just know today. People I know picked up packs at Beaumont and Richmond Road, and was told someone got one at Hamburg. I was just at Hamburg and asked someone if they had any remaining and was told to ask at customer service, but I wasn't shopping for it so didn't follow up.

    The Springhurst Liquor Barn had about a case sitting out in the wine section, not sure if there was more somewhere else though.
     
  26. bradfordjohnson

    bradfordjohnson Jun 18, 2012 Kentucky

    Got the last 2 at LB Richmond Road around 8:30pm.

    Yeah it was at about 8:30

    Any sort of limit? Hope some is still around tomorrow afternoon.
     
  30. mjweth2

    mjweth2 Jul 24, 2008 Kentucky

    Nope, no limit that I saw, they let me buy two 4 packs. I'd say there would for sure be some there tomorrow when they open and it was kind of "hidden" in a GI display in the wine section so it might be there a while

    Had a 1x 4/pk /person in Lexington. Make sure to take a s/o or friend if you want more!

    Wife called Springhurst this morning and was told they are now sold out :( Anybody got some extra they want to share??? :oops:
     
  33. wsnich

    wsnich Apr 26, 2010 Texas

    I do not trust the people there that answer the phones. They will generally tell you something limited is out over the phone but when you come into the store 10 minutes later, they will have it sitting out (ie BCBS last year).

    kind of upsetting hearing about all the bcbs that went out this year and so far we've seen Louisville got a case???

    Seems like this is probably the answer. Granted, I don't know much about beer distribution to KY, but there is a ton of BCBS out there this year. Let me know if you can't find any, and I'll send you a bottle.

    The Springhurst Liquor Barn is not sold out. I just bought a four pack at around 12:30pm today. There were around 4 or 5 four packs left. They have them in a display at the end of the wine section opposite the craft beer isle.

    It is now, I called and had my assistant call too. So as of right now, 1 store in louisville got bcbs and barely any from the sound of it. I've called everywhere else it would/could be and nada. Don't they know this IS Bourbon country!

    I can assure you that BCBS is at other stores in Louisville. Put down the phone and go visit them, and you'll find some no problem. After the CBS release last year, it isn't uncommon for stores to fib about having a limited release in or not.

    Just bought the last of it at springhurst. Now, where is my coffee and cherry rye?

    We received a couple more cases this week in Elizabethtown at Packages & More Liquors. We have the same AB distributor as louisville. It is out there.

    We also do not tell people how much we received over the phone. There are a number of rare beer chasers that will try to buy it all and will even send "mules" when I limit the amount of purchases. Had this problem with DFH 120, 3F and Founders limited releases.
