And the wait begins...
Put me down for a couple cases!
Solid brew...but with BCBS being so available this year, I personally do not feel the need for multiple four packs, like in previous years.
and lets not forget BBpt5th!
We already have to put up with those line cutters from Chicago, do we really need the Wisconites taking the ferry across?
Is this something that is relatively available in Chicago?
not for me. BBS is half the price of BCBS and drinks almost as well. in some circumstances, i like it better since its more drinkable. that, and it holds up very well. i will be buying my regular case and more if i need some extra for trades.
any word on BBBW?
It's half the price because its half as good and half as flavorful. Ill get a 4 pack, it's a decent brew but let's not say crazy things.
Yeah I enjoy this beer just as much as BCBS with all things considered. You have to wonder though when they'll start raising their prices on brews such as this. With the explosion of craft beer craziness I could see these packs get a $2 to $3 hike.... Even with that its still cheaper than most.
crazy things like saying half as good? so by that logic, it deserves a 2.2 rating on BA huh...
or, we could just agree to disagree and decide not to pick fights with people who have different opinions???
This, although I had a 2011 last week and I thought it had improved a bit from fresh.
BBBW hit in late Jan./early Feb. last year.
Meh, don't let the BCBS fanboys get to you. More for you and I to enjoy.
Sorry, I saw the packers logo and my eyes filled with rage. Agree to disagree but central waters isn't as strong though, it's 9.5% vs 15% so there's a reason it's cheaper if you simply look at the malt bill.
I am openly a BCBS fanboy. That being said, I really enjoy CW's BBS and BBBW. Really looking forward to them both to be released again this year.
Something about the avatar and precise response make this extremely credible.
Love the 4pks from CW-hopefully Peruvian turns out better this year. Impossible to beat the 10.99 price tag on all , and they are readily available too- at least in MN.
No idea how available it's been traditionally, but I found it by accident in a 7-11 that carries very little craft beer last year, and was able to get multiple 4 packs of it.
LOL! ok, so I might be a bit of a fan of it...
Central Waters has the most under-rated barrel program in the country.
I love to have BBS sitting around as an alternative to some of the big, huge bruisers (like BCS). BBBW is one of my top 3 beers to age, absolutely love it.
Can't wait until the Anniversary Party!
I like BBS, but it can't compare to BCS. That shouldn't be taken as a knock on CW, but BCS is the bar that has been set for amazing bourbon barrel stouts. Nothing truly compares, IMHO.
It will be good to have to fill the cravings, but it can't replace what is world class.
every year at the Anniv party i believe. which is the week before the Super Bowl.
Yes. I saw it on shelves for a couple of months last year. Now the BBBW is a different story.
My all time favorite Big Beer
Y2K (non -bal barely wine) generally gets released with BBS, right around the next few weeks....CW BBBW and Peruvian Morning get released late Jan/ Early Feb as has been mentioned already....
Cant wait to try it
I'm still sore over the fact that Peruvian Morning went sour...
Does that mean you won't be buying any BBS?
Funny. That's one of my wife's top 10 beers, & she hasn't noticed the souring yet. Down to a few bottles, so at least they didn't go to waste!
She, or you, or both, or WHATEVER, should consider herself/yourselves/WHATEVER lucky.
Who cares if this is as good as BCBS? Its still a good beer, easy to get, price point is great. Fill er up!
Love this northern WI brewery and curious about this beer.
It's not BCS, but what is, right? Their BB Stout, BB Barleywine, and Peruvian Morning (most years) are simply amazing. Props to Satin Solstice and Le Petite Mort as well!
I'm sorry about what I started. It's a great beer, I do enjoy it very much. Didn't mean to dis CW or this beer, I think they are both great. Peruvian Morning is an amazing brew, one of my favs, and BBBW is right there as well. Bourbon Barrel La Petite Mort, my god. Awesome.
Not at all! I'll be buying plenty of BBS. The 2011 is drinking great right now.
It seems like every time someone starts talking about a BA stout release from a brewery BCBS comes up. Some people are sorta dicks about it too. "Oh well (blank) is good but it's not bourbon county". "I will take one 1 case please". When did we decide every BA beer has to be BCBS clone?
I love CW BBS so much! Can't wait!
It is Sunday and I am really, really ready to seek this out in a couple of days. I've never had it.
I've never had BCBS either, but I have one 2012 bottle waiting for me that I am going to drink on Xmas.
anyone know how long they age this for? also, what kind of barrels do they typically use?
