    Doesn't really surprise me. I think if they don't have it in their market they presume it's nowhere in the state yet. Really hoping for some good news tomorrow about them coming to Pittsburgh.

    I just talked to the manager at a big bottle shop in kalamazoo and he said the distributor told him that the state of Michigan is only getting 7 cases of each total. Not sure if it's true or not but, good luck..

    It hit Bloomington-Normal today, so there's a good chance.

    If anyone in the NYC area is still looking for BCCS, there's a 24 hour craft beer store in my neighborhood of Bay Ridge, Brooklyn that has about 4 bottles left at $14.99/bottle. Just snagged 2. Message me for info.

    No, that's quite cheap if he's talking about Bourbon County Coffee.

    Coffee hit MO this past week and I was able to snag a few. No word on the arrival of Cherry though, supposedly its gonna be pretty limited...

    Unfortunately not in Springfield. Our area didn't get an allocation. Dammit!

    I know it's a much different story, but one store here in NY alone got 4-6 cases of BCBCS.

    I've been checking around and everyone says its going to be a week or two yet. But today at Marthas and they said they weren't getting the BCBS varients now which I think they were miss imformed because I can't imagine MI not getting it.

    They were def behind on getting it out to the Chicagoland area so imagine it would translate to outside states as well

    What exactly is the relationship between stores and distributors? I've been told from stores that I'm on first name basis with that "the distributor said the detroit metro area is only getting 1-2 cases total" to "We should be getting at least a case of coffee"

    ....I'm guessing distributors choose to lie to accounts that won't be getting?

    They might lie on occasion, but it's more common just to have a distro rep who's either lazy or dumb (or both) and just says whatever to their accounts to shut 'em up. Sad really...

    Yeah we got a bunch of the BCBS too but I was refering to the OP's thread topic, BCBS Cherry Rye and Coffee

    I talked to two beer managers at different stores who swore up and down that they were allocated a case each of Cherry Rye. When the trucks showed up, no Cherry Rye. Maybe Goose wound up making fewer cases available to the Chicago-area distributor or maybe the allocations were made before they packaged the beer and the yield was lower than expected. Or maybe a particular sales rep is doing a piss-poor job.
