    A&P Waterford had several Coffee and 3 more bottles of Cherry on the shelf as of noon yesterday. Not sure if there's a limit. Snagged 2 Cherry.

    Was fortunate to have the cherry rye last night and it was very good. In my opinion tho regular BCBS is still the best. Note that I have never had the rare however

    Gotta respectfully disagree. Fresh, the BCBCS was far better than regular BCBS. With a year or more on it, BCBS changes immensely.

    Coffee is gone as far as I can tell (I drove to North Eastern part of the state a few weeks ago to get a few bottles), but Cherry Rye just hit. Got a bottle at Wallingford Wine & Spirit this evening. They just got it in today. They also had Sixpoint 3Beans, which I'm psyched to try.

    Saw loading dock in Milford posted on Facebook that they got cherry rye. Think i walked out with 1 of their last 2. Guy at the counter playing scratch tickets asked me "how many women that expensive bottle will get me".
    New England Beverage Co in Orange said all their cherry rye were gone/reserved.

    Premier Wine and Spirits in Fairfield posted on facebook that they just got a case in. Its a newer store in Fairfield that gets some pretty solid beers and doesnt instantly get picked apart. Highly suggest checking them out if your in the area. http://www.facebook.com/PremierWine

    Anyone have details when Cherry Rye is supposed to make its way to Hartford County? Thought we'd have seen it by now.

    Any cherry rye left in the Hartford area? I'm going to be in Hartford for work tomorrow and was wondering if anyone knew of any still left. I'm probably too late on this, but it looks like MA might be getting screwed out of this one and i'd like to get a shot at a bottle.

    I'm guessing they were reserved bottles with only a handful received by each location. Connecticut Beverage Mart and Havest Wine?

    Not reserved but a first come first serve. I know Harvest got one case, not sure about bev mart. All I saw was the empty shelf with a nice 18.99$ price tag.... :(

    I paid 13.99 for a bottle of BCBCS a few weeks ago at Manchester Wine & Liquors. Seems about the cheapest around, but that's not always the case. Surprised that Havest was so pricey.

    Cherry Rye has been consistently more expensive then Coffee at the same place.

    Really? I find everything at Harvest pricey compared to Liquor Depot in New Britain, which is one of my main shops.

    Let me clarify, the price tag for Cherry of $18.99 I saw was at Liquor Depot in New Britain, not Harvest.

    Just validated this earlier tonight. Grabbed a bottle for $20 and split it with a friend. Delicious.
    Nice little store there in Old Lyme. Reasonably priced (besides the BCBCS) although a guy there tried selling me like thirty other beers.

    Haha is it the guy with glasses at the AP in Old Lyme? if so, he is always trying to push different beer on me. I actually try to avoid him when I go I or else it turns into an extended stay.

    On another note, I was at Grand wine and spirits in Groton today. They definitely had bottles of BCBCS left for $20. No cherry rye but they did have a ton of bolt cutter.
