    Anyone know if this is suppose to come out in December? Is it usually wide distribution?

    They originally release BBAPt5 at a brewery party called the 4 Elf Party. Then it sees wide distro in Michigan. I don't know about out of state distro.

    I've yet to be able to get my hands on any, and I've been in the liquor business for six years...

    If you want some you should easily be able to trade for some. It sat on shelves on a local store (to me) for over 6 months.

    This is an easily tradeable beer, but indeed, not distributed.

    Ok I've never traded before. I'll look into it on this site. Is there a better site to trade on?

    No. This is the best site for all things beer.

    Last year was the first time it was distributed outside of the brewery. There was a lot of it. I actually saw a few 4-packs last weekend.

    Try Facebook forums. The trade pages here are FILLED with people flipping wacky brewery only, acronym laden, 100 bottle count "whales" for one another. Your simple request may get overlooked.

    I traded into a few many years ago, thought it a good beer, a tad to the bitter but a very good brew. Go to the $4$ forum and put up a request, should be easy enough. If your new to trading here your first trade might be a bit of a hassle, you'll have to ship first, and when your box is received they'll ship your beers. Don't forget to add a few unannounced xtra beers that are local to you. Always nice getting beers you've never heard of before.

    Try searching for a Dark Horse forum. Forums exists for specific breweries, so searching becomes easier inside the desired forum. Good Luck!

    In my experience having only traded on here and only a few times, people are super friendly and happy to help bring new folks into the fold. I've not had the bba version of this but I do really enjoy the base beer, super underrated stout brewers up there in marshall. I'd post in the $4$ and/or the locals trading forums here and I'd wager you could get it sorted out quick.

    You need to be searching under groups and try strings like "Michigan beer trade" "michigan iso ft" "michigan craft beer". There are many.

    Just post an offer on this site. Why mess around with the wasteland that is Facebook? FYI the Dark Elf party is scheduled for 8 Dec but DH has not yet announced the bottle release.

    Gonna have to start watching the shelves at my stores. We usually get things a little later (just got BA expedition stout) but I haven't seen BA plead the 5th in years past.

    For anyone looking for last year's Mega-Bev in Marshall and Battle Creek have at least 15 cases each. I am willing to purchase and trade $4$.

    BBPT5 was always released only at the 4 Elf party until last year. It was released into retail last year due to a higher amount of bottles and the 4 Elf party had a smaller than usual crowd due to really bad weather.

    I can remember that Horrock's in Lansing had a pallet of BBPT5 at least five feet high shortly after the 4 Elf party. I suspect the bottles that hit retail, if any, will depend on the same two factors listed above.
