    Has CW's BBA Stout made it to Chicagoland? Last year there were cases stacked on the floor of my favorite South side shop for several weeks. I haven't seen it this year. Did I miss itor am I just being impatient?

    actually, surprisingly, i think it was $16/4 though i was gone during bbs season so i don't know what everyone else is charging. they've improved (some of) their prices and selection recently.

    Binnys had it at 11.99 but changed it to 14.99 due to a pricing discrepancy with the distributor. I knew I should have bought more early on.

    Yep. The first wave went out at the lower price. Subsequent shipments cost more.

    Saw quite a few bottles @ the binnys in Bolingbrook couple days ago. 2 Bottle limit. Thats prolly why its still sitting on the shelves. That store must be really slow, cuz they have some rare shit I havent seen @ other binnys.

    There was a very decent stock at Orland Park Binny's as of yesterday. Did not appear to be a limit either.

    Yup. $11.99. Olivia's is a real good place to buy beer, too. Definitely recommended.
