    Central Waters' new Barrel Aged Release "Barrel Aged Le Petit Mort" hit the stores in Madison today. From what I can tell, stores that recieved the beer each recieved one case (12 bottles). The total bottle count on this release is a fairly low at 1,200 bottles so get it while you can!

    It is indeed, I can see Local Option's logo staring back at me from all six bottles I secured on my run during lunch :grinning:

    Where did you pick your up? Price point?

    Can't wait to try a new offering!

    Hoping this hits Chicago too, I've been waiting for this one for like 8 months. Where do people think it'll be available?

    They have/had it at Rileys, Star, Hyvee, the typical places.

    I didn't bother checking with the Steve's locations but I know the one on McKee road will be getting it on Thursday. Basically, they'll get it whenever they get their weekly shipment for the distributor for Central Waters (which for most places was today but for a few is later in the week).

    Oh yeah and price point is between $10-$11 depending on the place.

    Helpful hint to all. Cental Waters is a pretty small brewery and everyone there is pretty knowledgeable about what is going on. If you just call their main number and ask the guy who picks up the phone about the release, he'll tell you everything he knows (which typically is ALOT). He will certainly know where is all being distributed.

    Good to know.

    And you're talking $10-11 for a six-pack, right? Hopefully not for a single 12oz...

    I would guess they are Bombers from the OP description of 12 to a case???

    25 ounce bombers. Central Waters continues to be the best bang for your buck when it comes to BA beers.

    Oh OK, not a bad price then.

    I had it on tap at Local Option and it's a pretty unique beer. Worth seeking out.

    I am so ISO... moving to Madison in a week and would appreciate if a BA can secure me at least one bottle!

    Haymarket had it on tap a month or so ago, and I thought it was an ok beer but not as good as their other BA beers.

    I like it for what it is, just a beer showing off a lot of barrel character, which CW does well.

    When I checked over lunch it didn't appear to have arrived on the west side of Madison yet.

    Steve's on University got their case this morning and the guys I talked to said it was part of the west side shipment. I was able to find a bottle here and there but for the most part I would say Madison is sold-out.

    Steve's on Junction was nearly sold out when I picked up a bottle a few minutes ago.

    Did anyone call yet re: Chicago distribution? I can do it later this afternoon if not - will let people know what I hear.

    I'm driving up to the UP later this evening (through Milwaukee) - is there any place near that route that I could grab a bottle of this?

    Any word on the Milwaukee area getting any??

    I would assume Milwaukee got it when we did. Out of the 100 cases produced, 20 went to the Madison area, I would assume more than that went to the Milwaukee market.

    A Bourbon-barrel-aged Belgian Weizenbock collaboration?

    Sounds orgasmic indeed. If only I were heading back to WI this summer...

    Don't get your panties in a tangle. Bottles (bombers) will come to Chicago in the next couple weeks.

    It's a BA weizenbock. Recipe is from local option but was made and distributed by central waters. I like this beer but local options other beers haven't been anything special. Heard BA Kentucky common is good though

    I haven't tried the BA version, but the regular version was quite tasty. Would love if they bottled it so I could see what happens with a little age.

    The base beer "La Petite Mort" will not be bottled - it was draft only. BBA La Petite Mort (which uses the 'regular' version as the base beer) was aged for several months on Heaven's Hill barrels. It will be available in Chicago in the next few weeks. I'd suggest checking out Binny's on Marcy Street towards the end of next week.

    Can anyone pick me up a bottle and I'll get you back either with $$ or trade in a couple weeks at the Great Taste?

    i thought it sounded terrible, had it on tap a little while ago and it isn't bad.

    Sorry, should have been more specific. I was actually referring to the BA Kentucky Common. Didn't realize they did a BA version of it as well.
