    Was no guess my friend...

    and these are 'vintage' weekends, so it should always be something that has already been released. Leon will come, in time.

    Yikes, $20 for a 12 oz bottle that we paid $10 for about 4 months ago? Glad I passed on going over that way this morning.

    Thanks. I've been trying to track it down in trade, but if it is practically Huna, i've got plenty of that. :)

    The Black Butte was solid, so too was BCBS.. I brought along the La Folie and tried it for the first time and it was great... A few bottles of Fantome showed up after the pic and they rocked too...

    The pre-opening tasting is fantastic, then you get the CCB lineup when the doors open. Makes for a great day...
