    Nice. Did you trade for those? Supposedly, Kentucky will see some soon. How much...who knows. I would love both, but isn't the cherry pricey? I'd still buy it, I'm sure.

    No, my buddy from college purchased them for me. They were pricey, he snagged these and some BCBS.

    Called Liquor Barn and was told only a few left in town. Because I had to drive from Winchester Jesse said he would hold one. When he answered the phone I heard the "burg" and figured I'd called Hamburg. Drove to Hamburg and was told they were sold out but Jesse worked at the Harrodsburg Rd LB. Drove clear to the other side, fought the traffic, was nearly car killed but made it,; snatching perhaps the last four pack in Lexington. I hope it's worth it!

    Hey! You got some. And that's what being a beer hunter (or beer nerd as I call myself) is all about. We have to be crazy enough to drive all over the place for something in life, and if it's not our kids, it might as well be beer.

    Did you try other places in louisville that are not called liquor barn?

    Old Town on bardstown road, Evergreen in Middletown etc.

    If you must shop liquor barn, try the fern valley location for limited beer releases. They get some and do not have the same clientele as the other stores.

    I had luck with Evergreen last night. Maybe they still have some today. Also was told by someone at LB Springhurst to check back Tuesday and Wednesday this week since they had already sold all four cases they received last week.

    And I also advocate checking the non-chain stores. They seem to keep the limited stuff like this around for a little longer.

    Bumping to see if anyone has heard anything about coffee or cherry?

    Everywhere I've asked so far seems to have no idea.

    I'll take a turn at bumping this up. I'll be in the Northern Kentucky area this weekend, and I was really hoping to find and try some of the coffee. Anyone have any updates?

    if it's anything like the release of regular bcbs, then N. KY will see it about a week or two before we see it in Louisville.

    Jealous. Society and Solitude is now one of my favorite beers. Don't be afraid to stock up and stop in Lexington on your way home. No one will hold it against you.

    I"m up there every Christmas. I have a list about a mile long of people wanting stuff, but sadly, I'm pretty selfish :)

    Is there any regular BCBS left in Covington area (ie close to the SW Ohio border)? Considering making a drive down from Columbus.
