    I know its a stretch but i'd love to find some places that have it available. I know a few places that serve the bottles at the bar but I dont have any where to buy to bring home. Would love to start a list in here.

    Eagle Provisions on 5th ave and 18th st in Park Slope, Brooklyn have 2 bottles of Cantillon behind the register, but you're going to pay through the ass for them. I was there this morning and the prices were:

    Iris - $62
    Other one (name escapes me right now) - $42

    Sometimes bars like gingerman, mugs alehouse(Williamsburg), Spuytil Duyvel, Alewife(LIC) will sell bottle to go, but expect slightly inflated prices. I picked up a few 375ml bottle this way over the last year or so.

    I think DBGB has it (bar/restaurant) but not sure if they would sell it to go.

    C-town Astoria got a case of Gueuze about two weeks ago, $70 for a 750. Came in went in about a half an hour.

    Wow! You're better off ordering from Belgium at that price. That's insane.

    You're better off flying to Belgium for a case than paying $70/bottle. Unbelievable.

    Kinda curious how a place like C-Town gets a case of Cantillon in the first place.

    They get some amazing stuff there, must have a good relationship with the distributor. The beer guy told me Shelton Bros just surprises him every now and then.

    What an absolutely absurd markup. Everything is just such a freakin cash grab with these bottle shops these days. smfh.

    To be fair, this particular location consistently has some of the lowest prices on bottles, typically $2-3 less than the neighboring shops, and way less than the ones in Manhattan. Plus the beer guy there is really friendly and doesn't pull any shady reselling/package deals like other places (cough Brooklyn Fine Fare). Considering they sold out nearly instantly and I can count on one hand the number of times I've seen loons on the shelf here, maybe they weren't too out of line. That being said I certainly didn't buy at that price.

    Fair enough--don't get me started on Brooklyn Harvest Market :mad:. Just sucks that its just gotten to the point where its almost cheaper to have someone buy beer elsewhere and ship it here.
