    So does TW typically hide the wales in the back and you have to ask for it? 'Cause I was just at the one in Towson and I didnt see any. The did have some 50/50 Eclipse though (red wax).

    Had it behind customer service at TW Alexandria. But you could easily see them with the prices, along with a few other cases of stuff. Also picked up Jai Alai.

    I asked one guy about the Jai and he told me don't forget to pick up the BC BW. They were going quick! Luckily I had my roommate with me so I got to pick up 2 4packers.

    yeah have have had the same experience with them. Seems they dont know about stuff until it arrives or the day before. I asked the guy working the register about Backyard and he said they weren't getting any. But who knows

    This is annoying considering I went to TW McLean on Wednesday and asked at Customer Service about BW, I was assured by the guy they were NOT getting any, which I found odd. (knowing that Sterlingbeerguy mentioned it certainly was coming to NoVA)


    I don't want to open back up the Total Wine bashing, I like it and shop there, I just don't understand the incorrect information that gets relayed from their employees to customers. I don't blame the employees, they go by what they are told, but somewhere up the chain of command, miscommunication is happening.

    TW Towson had BCBS cases on display by the registers the weekend after Black Friday - definitely not hidden. There were still bottles of last years 50/50 Eclipse's there on the shelf as well, Elijah Craig and another I don't remember. While that store MAY hold some things back they definitely put much of it out for grabs.

    LOL.. I would have made it out today if I hadn't already heard from my buddy that you guys were down to your last two Bitter Valentines last night; thought McLean might have been an option there, no dice but walked away with some BCBBW as a consolation prize. Either way I'm sure you'll still see me before Christmas regardless :wink:

    In their defense, the distributor was recently purchased by another distributor that hadn't done business in NoVA up to that point. The timing was bad as new management took over the day BCBS was released. My shipment was sent to the store with no notice at all. When I contacted my rep, he hadn't even been told. We hadn't even finished converting our data files for the new distributor let alone had the capability to receive a shipment. I was eventually given allocation numbers later in the day(which turned out to be inaccurate) and received it with my normal shipment. I hadn't heard anything on the Barleywine, since those initial allocation numbers, until yesterday afternoon, so it isn't outside the realm of possibility they actually weren't aware they were getting it.
