    Probably my most anticipated release at the moment. They're bottling today and it'll be distributed to "all markets", according to their Facebook page. While I'd like to say BBQs are one of my favorite styles, I've really only had Boulevard's. Any others out there I should know about?

    Another BB beer from my favorite brewery! Love BB Scotch Ale, BB Stout, BB Cassian Sunset, want BB Cherry Stout, but didn't care for BB Barleywine. These guys make some real decent BB beers for 1/3 to 1/4 the price of competitors. Will have to get this one too.

    Thank you. Been wanting to try Stickee Monkee forever, but will probably never have access to it unless I start trading. Always an eye out though.

    It fell flat for me if that's any consolation.

    If you do ever start trading though, find an Avery 5 Monks. I wasn't a huge fan of quads but this is the best quad-like beer I've ever had. Honestly top 5 beers of all time. So much sweet, sweet bourbon...

    Brau Bros in Marshall MN did one a few years ago, (2012-13?). You may want to check w/ the brewery to see if this BBQ is anywhere on their upcoming schedule.

    They're typically not the cheapest, but tend to be a safe bet. Let us know what ends up standing out for you!

    Where in IL are you? I've had no problem getting multiple bottles, you've just got to find the right places. I really liked last year's, this year not as much.

    I live mid-state, in Lincoln. I assume you're up north closer to Chicago? What are the right places, out of curiosity?

    Binny's Lincoln Park had cases of it sitting right in the middle of the floor (with no limit) for at least a week. That is definitely not the norm for the FW barrel aged beers, but I think this is a style that doesn't appeal as widely as their other BA offerings.

    Wizard Burial Ground from Brewery Vivant is an awesome BBQ!

    Boulevard has put their great Bourbon Barrel Quad in 12oz 4pks for the very first time after always having it in 750ml bottles, and it will be available this month too, not the usual November release. These will be fun to compare!

    Depending on what part of Kentucky, might be worth a trip to Illinois or Pennsylvania.

    So - with bottling starting yesterday, can we expect this in stores in 2-3 weeks? Or is that too optimistic?

    Based on their production schedule and releases in the past (below), I'm sure we'll see BBQ very soon. @RyanFindlay can help with this?!?[​IMG]

    Yeah, I've been pretty excited for those to come out as well. That will be a pretty great comparison.

    I don't know anything about beer availability in Lincoln, but it'll be readily available in Bloomington and Champaign. All CW Brewer's Reserve line is.

    I am driving through Milwaukee headed up north on a trip to Eagle River area week of Sept 20-24. Do the Wisconsin BA peeps think This will be out and about by then?

    Unmakable Initiate (44) Mar 9, 2016 Illinois

    Yeah, I never have issues with finding Central Waters BA stuff. The 'right places' I was asking about was referring to where to find Firestone Walker's Stickee Monkee.

    I'm pretty sure he was referring to Stickee Monkee. I walked in Binny's on Grand a few days after it dropped and they still had multiple cases sitting out with a two bottle limit.

    Blasphemy from Weyerbacher is a stellar example of the style.

    Can I take their website as accurate or do I need to call in advance? Beers to go open at 8am during the week, correct?!

    Straffe Hendrik Heritage is really great, expensive but great. I'm still sitting on 2 bottles of Oak Aged Abt 12, but those aren't bourbon either.

    I second Weyerbacher Blasphemy. for $7.99-8.99 it's an utter steal, and it's fantastic.
