    FW XXI at TW Alexandria and Springfield, and the 10% off email coupon works in it too.

    Willettized also in at TW Alexandria and coming to Springfield later today.

    I went by TW Ballston this morning and they said something about no vendor available for this beer -- shocker that a TW wouldn't know about a new release.

    Any DC sightings yet for FW21, KCM, or Willetized?

    I'll say that Mcl got FW and sold out of it on Monday, well that's what they told me today.

    They also have cases upon cases of Willettized.

    Seconded on the question of whether kcm has hit the area. I saw it has hit around total wines closer to Richmond already

    Willetized at Calvert Woodley ($14.99). They also have BP High West Victory at Sea ($15.99/4 pack).

    What's the price and size of the FW? My 10% coupon says four or six pack. Wonder if they would honor that for the FW?

    I think it's 12oz for 13.99....that is unless someone makes a mistake listing the price again...........

    In my experience, they won't honor the discount on singles/bombers.

    ThePetrus Initiate (0) Mar 10, 2017 Virginia

    They will not. I've tried a couple times and they reiterated a few times that it has to be a 4pk or 6pk.

    I only saw a single case at each store, but they may have had more squirreled away.

    It was $14 and 12 oz.

    My coupon says it works on 4/6 packs and bottles 16+ oz over $7.99, but I noticed a few months ago the coupons work on any single bottle that meets the price threshold, regardless of size. Whether the employees will scan it is a different matter, but they've never turned me down.

    I was in TW McLean on Saturday with no coupon in hand and picked up a bottle of Abyss Tequila. The cashier made a joke about the name, I laughed, and she scanned a coupon code that she had hanging from her register for 10% off. So, yea, I guess it's just up to the employee.

    At that price it seems like the obvious choice is to just pick up another sixer of the Willetized and call it a day.

    I was told by someone working at wegmans that it was delayed until later this week (maybe Friday) because of a problem with UPC codes or something like that. Not sure if it applies to reg Christmas Morning, KCM, or both.

    TW Alexandria and Springfield have extremely limited quantity of FW Anniversary about 2 bottles...Springfield also has some Christmas Morning left as well.

    Some TWs will scan it (Alexandria, Springfield & McLean), others will not (Ballston & Laurel) because they read right off the coupon that it "only applies to 4/6 packs". So, if one plans on using the coupons, go to those stores that just scan the coupons without reading them.

    Norms in Vienna got some last week, I usually see them at Wegmans so might want to check there if there is one convenient to you.

    Total wine McLean has 1pp Christmas morning behind he front desk. Also cases on cases of willetized coffee. I think I might like he willet even better than high westified and at only 2.50 a bottle worth stocking up I think.

    Not sure it's been mentioned, but Commonwealth Marvoloso and two variants hit DC yesterday. I had the coconut/banana one yesterday and I definitely enjoyed it. Certainly not world-beating, but I liked the creativity here and it was executed well.

    Looking forward to cracking one open. Was lucky to grab some yesterday, sold out fast.

    What's the deal with the distributor? It seems like a number of places don't deal with Commonwealth...

    If you think it's worth $47, Maple Bourbon Imperial Mexican Biscotti Cake Break at Lost Dog Alexandra. Also had BBA Ten FIDY.

    I was just at CBC and saw one of the cans still on the shelf (I think just the regular, not the variants).

    If anyone is still looking: BA Ten Fidy at WF Old Town x4, and Abraxas at Department of Beer and Wine x4 (with another box there, I wasn’t sure if it’s full or just for a boost in display height.

    Lots of Abraxas at Magruders. $24.99. Out on the floor— I don’t think there’s any limit.
