    Northlax, when you say variants, do you mean just coffee and bw like last year? Thanks for your help on this! Look forward to the hunt tomorrow!!

    Coffee, BW, and regal Rye. Coffee is scarce, BW is decent, Rye is a little less decent lol

    No rare in NJ :slight_frown:

    I agree that this year's BCBS is the best I've ever had (i've only had 2012-present). It tastes like it has already been aged for a long time. No heat at all.

    Completely agree. Had 2013-2015 on tap and 2015 is identical to 2013, which is astounding with the lack of two years aging.

    Lemme third that motion!

    On a semi related note, I think the barleywine is somewhere between bleh and mediocre.

    I'll second that. Give me a Gratitude or an Aaron.

    Unless they make it like the 2013 barleywine that they left in the barrels longer I'm guessing, I'll always be disappointed with it. The 2013 was a hair below King Henry for me and very easy to get around here.

    Agreed having done the BW share it's KH, Aaron, BCBW13 and it's very close between all three.

    As for this year's regular (out of the bottle) it's the only thing that rivals 2013 and 2008.

    Ended up scoring 1 each of Rye and Coffee in NNJ last night... It's still out there people don't accept the "no variants in NJ" line.

    Definitely going to be a good line. Lot of people will probably just take lunch early to go get in line and try to get what they can.

    The chance to only buy one of coffee OR rye kind of sucks, can't even get one of each. Plus, only a raffle for Rare. This could keep the lines lower, but not sure.

    Yup. Had a doctor appointment so I was home from work early and the stars aligned. I'd imagine that if they got it just last night someone else out there has got to have some variants left.

    If they only got a case of Regal and a case of Coffee (as seemed to happen many places), that means all but the first 24 are getting shut out. We'll see!

    Wegmans in Lawrenceville got the regular, barleywine and regal in. One per person, I got the regal for $22. Haven't been to Canal's yet.

    Did a 2008-2014 vertical last year and every single person agreed that 2011 was the best. 2008 was 6 years old though, so there's that.

    I am curious to see if people think that's the best or maybe it's guided by the hype. 2011 was probably the hardest to get since the new labels in 2009. That being said it could have to do a lot with how it was stored. Mine came from @F2brewers and I am assuming he stored it in some magical chamber (or his basement) because it was incredible.

    I just got back from there, well run and quick, i estimate they got 4 cases of regal and 4 cases of coffee...

    probably still available.

    EDIT: this was a sponsored even by GI, there was rep there, they had free key chains and the rep was manning the door, so they allotment was more than other stores

    Just got the last regal. There was no line at the end and they allowed you back in line after everyone had a chance to go through. Reg and BW still available.

    Went to 3 stores in Middletown NJ, no variants to be had. Each store was limiting purchase to 1 or 2 bottles of BCBS per customer, some (Spirits) were only selling to those on their list. I thought this year BCBS was supposed to be plentiful? I guess that might be the case anywhere but Central NJ. I have a feeling variants are around but only being sold to the beer guys buddies or store employees. Am I bitter? Maybe.

    I think what happens is some stores already got it, some stores are getting it today or tomorrow, and distributors probably still have some and are waiting to see where it should go. So everyone paying $15 per bottle to make sure they don't get shut out eventually don't want / can't afford more, so when the next wave hits there are more bottles and fewer people looking for regular and barleywine. In a week or 2 you might actually see it on beermenus or even (gasp) shelves, in some NJ stores.
