    Any insight into what stores will be getting variants? Anyone know what is being sent to DC and Northern Va?

    Rodmans posted that they will have all variants, but no real clues to quantity of each. Have heard elsewhere that reg and bw should be plentiful. Coffee and Northwoods will be pretty limited

    DC has been (and will continue to be) the place to be for NoVA BCBS hunters. NoVA will continue to get screwed on variants. So if you want anything other than Regular and Barleywine, plan to be downtown.

    I'd check Schneider's, they usually get in the variants.

    Total Wine had Coffee last year, but you had to be in line early to get it.

    Any suggestions for MD? I've seen Gilly's and Lighthouse post about it. Anybody else I should look out for? I would assume Downtown Crown, but haven't seen them mention anything yet socially.

    Downtown Crown sends out a newsletter via email that had details. 10am release on Friday, 96 bottles of regular, 1 per customer.

    As posted earlier, DC is the best bet for variants, but if you can't make it out of MD, Howard County seems to have received the best allocation of variants the last couple years. Montgomery County really isn't worth it. Limits are usually 1 or 2 bottles of regular per person and are almost always marked up a decent amount. I think people were reporting $15 per bottle of regular in Moco last year.

    Why would anyone line up for regular? It's all over the place for weeks, if not months.

    Because they've never heard of it, but Esquire, Fortune, and Forbes Magazines told them they just HAVE to get it on Black Friday, and they're not one to miss out damnit!

    Because they are hoping there will be variants and didn't think to ask employees ahead of time, and are unaware of the forums on this site?

    Harry's Reserve Fine Wine & Spirits will have reg, coffee, bw and northwoods. Don't know the exact qtys...Union Pub will also be tapping '16/'17 reg, coffee, bw and northwoods @10am.

    Good luck y'all!

    looks like Whole foods H street has 16/'17 reg, coffee, bw and northwoods as "up next" on their tap list. Haven't heard about bottles but seems likely given the tap list and having hosted the goose island event a few months back.

    So can I expect to find regular sitting on shelves tomorrow for the taking? It’s my first Black Friday in the area (I’m in Chevy Chase visiting family) so I have no idea what to expect. In SE Michigan, you pretty much have to line up even to get Regular. On the other hand, I know it sits by the case-full for months in NYC. Where does DC fall on that continuum? Any tips on where to go if I don’t care about variants and just want 4-6 botttles or so of Regular?

    If you don't care about variants, Magruder's on Connecticut Avenue and Rodman's on Wisconsin close to you will likely have it. Also, all the places upthread will probably have regular on shelf for a while, especially Schneiders and Whole Foods P st. It often appears at Harris Teeter downtown within a day or two, and drops many other places sometime the following week.

    Whole Foods Vienna had nothing. Waste of time. In front of Norms right now. No one else here. I buy a lot of (too much ☺) beer at Norm's. Norm said the distributor promised not to repeat last year's debacle. We shall see . . .

    Thanks to the two brothers who pulled up to TW Springfield and stood in line smoking cigars (right behind the guy with a baby.) You made waiting in a line a pukeworthy experience.

    They had all five at TW Springfield, plus you can use the 10% off coupon that was in the email.

    I went to Rodman’s on Wisconsin. Maybe 25 people in line by open (9am), pp limits were 1 Northwood, 2 Coffee, 3 BW, and no limit on Regular.

    Super easy, and the Rodman’s beer guy brought Intelligentsia coffee, cookies, and GI swag out to the line around 8:30. Night and day from back home in SE Mich, where you’ll stand in line for a single bottle of Reg, and even the biggest stores seem to get a single case of coffee/“other” if they’re lucky.

    I’m not sure who’s more in the wrong here...the guys smoking outside or the guy waiting in line with a baby in this cold weather for a freakin beer.

    Reserve was supposed to only go to Illinois and Kentucky. It was something of a surprise that Virginia got it. No clue if DC will see any.

    I thought exactly the same. Lol. You're not allowed to smoke cigars outside of a store that sells cigars, because some guy stuck watching his child is making them wait in line in the cold to get a beer. America in 2017.

    HT on M St SE has a bunch of BCBS @ $12.99 and a little BCBBW @$17.99

    Saws limit 4 each, not sure how they'll enforce that. Lame pricing wasn't it $9.99 last year?
