    Modern Liquors, 901 M St NW, Washington DC just received Coffee, Backyard Rye and Barleywine. But they already have allocations. One block from Mt Vernon Convention Center Metro.

    How do places keep track of their best customers? Do they have a database where they attach every sale to a customer account?

    You're telling me that they don't know you at your local store? I've opened up a line of credit at Dawson's.

    Yes. And the first thing I did when I started shopping there was bring the beer guy 6 high ranked out of market beers. I live in MoCo. I Do half my shopping at Total Wine in McLean. You think they have an idea of how much money I've spent there in the last (insert any amount of time)? I also buy groceries at Harris Teeter. No one there knows my name, but on every receipt there's a little line telling me how much I've saved this year. They know what you buy and give you coupons for shit they know you buy to get you to buy more. They're keeping track, why aren't the big alcohol chains? Why the local beer guy doesn't know my name after his gift and frequent visits is beyond me. Look at my avatar. Wouldn't you remember that face?

    Odenton Liquors said they were getting regular BCBS and a keg of Barleywine, guessing for growlers tomorrow

    Ha, it ain't cheap. I picked up a 4 of Coffee because it is freakin delicious and I'd rather pay $34.99 at one spot than drive to 4 different stores to get one bottle at a time at $6.99. After driving 45 min to TW Sterling yesterday to miss the last of it there I was an easy sell.

    No database. The store is small and it's the same guy there every time. He knows who buys a lot.

    Has anywhere near baltimore got rye? I haven't heard of it anywhere near here. Not including DC. Apparently one of the distributors here never got coffee which is why its been MIA

    DC definitely got Rye, although quite limited.

    The Cellars / Harris Teeter in Locust Point has BCBW and possibly a bit more BCBS but it was behind the counter. 20.99/4pk (limit 1 4pk of each)

    any leads on who might be receiving tomorrow (Friday)? ideally, downtown DC or anywhere NW...

    or have all shipments been received, and we're SOL at this point?

    They could be holding it back. Also, it appears they went down by $2, because the 2012 singles of BCBS they sold earlier this year were $12, unless the extra $2 was their "vintage" price for just a few months. $25 isn't too bad overall though.

    There was a pricing/ABC issue with BCBW. It was resolved earlier this week and you'll start seeing BCBW pop up in the next week or two.

    Any good beer manager has a mental database of who comes in and buys beer continuously, and who comes in just to buy the tough to get stuff. I would hold 3-5 bottles for my best regular customers. The rest was always released into the wild.

    Got to take care of the guys that are keeping you in business (or not...oh, Ricks...sigh) without only coming in when Hopslam, KBS or BCBS hits shelves.

    I feel the same way. Yesterday I was actually in the middle of typing a hateful post about a place mentioned on here (where I've spent a ton of money but never seemed to have a hook-up) when they called me to come pick up my allotment. Guess it works out sometimes...

    I have my regular place. They have only gotten BCBS so far. Last year I was getting multiple bombers of coffee from them. Starting about six months ago, every time i came in the guy would go into the back and pull out a bottle of something they hadn't put on the shelves yet, i.e., the Southern Tier Warlock, or the Stone/ Bluejacket Suede or the Boulevard Bourbon Barrel Quad. Well, now it is Friday and they haven't received any of the variants yet and so I have had to go to other places I am not a regular at. I went to one place I have never been before and the guy knew he had a fish on a hook. $43 for a 22oz Backyard Rye bomber retail. And yes, i paid it.

    Looking at the reviews, everyone loves the BCBW - higher end of the Bourbon County Brand beers. The Backyard Rye is reviewing well, but lower-tier among the BCB class. Apparently this year's coffee is amazeballs. I got the Backyard Rye in DC. I got two 12oz coffee's in South Arlington yesterday.

    If what [bold]raveskdr[/bold] says is true, then I am looking forward to getting BW in Arlington.

    Any body spotted coffee at any of the nova wegmans? The one in Fredericksburg has it.

    This years coffee is in fact legit. Backyard is very fruit forward now, somewhat sweet, which should age down. I don't blame you for paying $43. If they have what you want, how much is your time & gas worth. Especially the Backyard, rather scarse. It's the driving around to piece together an overpriced 4pk that gets me. The BCBW is good but has nothing on Sucaba.

    You talk like Sucaba is on every store shelf. And you misspelled scarce.

    raveskdr Initiate (0) Oct 10, 2009 Virginia

    It's true. There is approximately the same amount of BCBW that will hit NoVA as there was Coffee. So keep that in mind. I'd guess you see similar limits because the same places that got Coffee will get BCBW, and in similar amounts.

    I was willing to pay $43 for my first backyard rye, mainly due to its scarcity. I won't pay $43 for my second. It was cheaper for me to overpay for that than miss a day's worth of wages to wait in line for a midweek, midday shipment.

    I should be able to get the BW from the same place i got the coffee.
