    We went to Clybourn. The Cherry rye was gone in about 5 minutes.

    I have heard at least one store say they were going to get some Bramble in but things may have changed. It sounded like they did. I think it's on some of the order forms but just because you order something doesn't mean you are going to get it. I'm sure many stores had the same experience as the distributors didn't know what they were going to get.

    Hmm... considering they don't know the name of the beer, I'm not sure how much stock I would put in them.

    I can assure you they know what they are talking about. They know the name of the beer. Just cause I shorted the name and said Bramble doesn't mean everybody shouldn't know what we were talking about. You sure did and given this guy runs a well respected shop and is the beer buyer. I would give him the benefit of the doubt.

    Edit: Looking at the bottle I guess it doesn't say Bramble but just Backyard Rye. It seems everybody has been referring to it as Bramble. Maybe I'm just delusional?

    I had a Propietors show up today with no problems as well. It was really really cold though when I took it out of the box. I was sweating all day today when I found out it was delivered.

    Welcome to the Midwest forum. We're known for taking things too seriously and being passive aggressive.

    Saga doesn't get enough credit, especially when we're talking about barrel aged stouts.

    I still think that Saga should be an official unit of currency for the Midwest forum.

    "Abrasive for 16.99 at Heritage Liquor" doesn't tell me shit.

    "Abrasive for 17.00417014178482 Sagas at Heritage Liquor" tells me what I need to know.

    If it catches on, it could be the official currency of the MN beer scene.

    Dried up prune that is a shadow of what it used to be, selling crappy execise equipment on infomercials at 3am. I hope Saga's not that. Maybe you were talking CN when he was with Bruce Lee.

    This has officially evolved into a Saga thread. Nicely done! It's nice that we don't have to worry about chasing trucks to get a Saga fix!

    Both I quess, depending on what a person thinks of Saga.

    Here Saga has roundhouse kicked GI BC.

    Rumor has it Saga started the fire that burned down Three Floyd's.

    Saga took all the Citra that was supposed to go into Wet this year.

    Undervaluation of Saga currency caused the spike in beer prices over the last 2 years.

    Saga stole all that Pappy Van Winkle this year.

    Saga jealousy is why Goose Island sent less Bourbon County to Minnesota this year.

    I heard the Cita went into Wet, but Saga sacred it out upon hitting the shelves next to Saga.

    George Lucas's inspiration for the original Star Wars trilogy came from drinking a Saga. Yes Star Wars predates Saga. So you think. But Saga transcends space and time!

    I don't claim to understand the Law of Saga, I merely adhere to it.

    Maybe saga doesn't make it past page 10? That would be nice.

    On the backyard discussion... cracked one open yesterday. No Barry, I didn't find it locally, so get out of your car :wink:

    An interesting brew. Of The BC stuff, not my favorite, but worth trying. Many will love it.

    Hope it makes its way to MN.

    I had a 3-4oz pour at TG this past weekend, & thought it was lights out good! I like it better than both Bramble & even Cherry Rye. I am losing hope that I'll find this in MN tho...

    Yeaaah. They decided not to put any of the 'special' releases from this month out & planned on releasing them all on Christmas Eve when they opened. Guess they didn't get the rush they expected that morning...but of course, who knows what they really might have done.

    I think a lot of places put it out on Christmas eve. Can't believe it wouldn't have all got sold. I was in a liquor store all day on Christmas eve and it was a shitshow. Soooo many people in and out it was incredible.

    Did anyone else here this story that there was an issue with labeling that delayed the distro in the Twin Cities? Just heard that today and was wondering if anyone had info on that. This source says that the Backyard might be hitting town... finally.
