Washington seems to be in the very back of the line for most of these awesome beer releases .
Are these 2 still being distributed to nearby states or has it all been shipped?
Maybe so, but none of the good Washington stuff makes it here to the Midwest either
What do you consider to be good Washington beer?
That's not true. I actually know a guy who helped pack the cherries at the brewery. A little limited as far as cherries being available this year but they are trying to distribute to a larger area to increase customer base.
Has anyone in New York seen Cherry Rye ?
I heard NJ would be getting some in January. Im sure NY wouldnt be too far behind. Talk to your local beer store and distributor.
will do thanks for the response
No problem man. Im hoping to score some from my friend in Jersey. So if i hear anything soon ill let you know.
Pretty much anything I guess?
Northern NJ already saw both come and go from my understanding, as did NY. Supposedly Coffee coming to Southern NJ in January, but no Cherry Rye.
Damn! Dude at Wegmens said the Cherry Rye should be hitting in January. Maybe he was mistaken for Coffee? Anyways I would be happy with either. Although i really wanted some Cherry.
There are multiple InBev distributors in NJ, so it's possible perhaps that your local Wegmans may still get it. I know though that they hit 2 of the 3 Total Wine locations up in Northern NJ in mid-December as well as a number of other stores in the area.
I know for sure NYC/Westchester did not receive any Cherry Rye yet. Might be possible that other areas of NY have received theirs, but from the 6 or 7 different places I've been in contact with, it seems like they are all still expecting to receive Cherry Rye in the next week or two.
One of my guys was one of the guys who packed the cherries as well and he said there was some spillage. At this point, who knows. All I do know is that it was very limited out there.
HHHEEEEYYYYYY!!! Awesome, now quick, go buy a Powerbasll ticket, Bro.
It's here. Brother-in-law just grabbed two bottles from a bottle-shop in Queens (not sure which one), one for me and one for him (1 per person, sister was a proxy).
I almost don't believe it
im in long island ny . my distributor just got 12 bottles - 1 for me . I'm thinking I should age it since it recommends you to age up to 5 years.
Thanks - Seems like LI and Queens got some shipments here today, but doesn't look like Manhattan/Brooklyn got anything yet. Probably Friday..
Recommends? Or states it's possible? I think BOTH of these are best fresh...don't see much more coming out of them.
I feel the bramble got better with age last year. The first bottle I had of it sucked, second bottle was good, and the third was awesome.
AR just got its shipment of BCBS and BCBCS last week. We also got Madame rose and night stalker. The 2012 BCBS is ok but it's really green. The case I got is going to the back of the cellar a s I'm aging it till at least next year. The BCBCS was better then I expected! What a phenomenal beer. No cherry eded up here that's know of.
BCBCS is better than the BCBS this year, and it better be, considering the price. But anyhoo, on Long Island NY here, Cherry Rye's pretty tight.
Its on the island got mine
Never said it wasn't, nor did I say that I haven't got it. But, big thanks for going out of your way and relaying that info!
My post had nothing to do what you said. I was simply stating it has hit the island
Will I be able to find any of these in early Jan in Chicago or michigan
Its already hit both these states so probably not. Our biggest beer store here only got six bottles of Cherry and they sold out within mins. Coffee hits here this week I hear but I'm sure they'll be gone just as fast.
ahhhhh shit anybody wanna trade an Abraxas for a coffee or cherry?? Will be in Chi town, holland MI, grand rapids, ann arbor, and kalamazoo.
sent you a BM
Cherry Rye went on sale in Northern NJ i was able to score four bottles of which i have traded 2 away. Coffee wasn't approved for sale until January. Rockland County NY hasn't seen either as far as i can tell I check in with my beer guys daily.
Picked up a couple Coffee's this year (no luck getting a Cherry). How well does the Coffee age? Is it better to enjoy this one fresh or age it a little?
General consensus is fresher is better. I put a year on my 2011 bottle (only one I've ever had) and it was very good still. Probably would have been better fresh if you enjoy coffee. There was still a bunch left though.
Having had it fresh and with a year on it I much preferred it with a year on it for the same reason I prefer BCBS and all its variants with a year on it....the bourbon takes just enough of a back seat that all the flavors complement each other perfectly IMO...if you are a bourbon lover more than anything however perhaps fresh is your thing
I live in Pittsburgh and my bottle shop guy told me he had a case of Cherry Rye coming in. Still, to this day, it has not shown up. Unfortunate because I would have spent my paycheck and signed away the first born for it. maybe I can come across some coffee it seems while I'm in mid Michigan till the new year
Took forever to show up in Iowa. Everyone thought they would get a case or two. A few retailers got 6 bottles each. It may still get there, but nobody will likely get what they think they will.
It ages poorly. I love Coffee BCS because it's awesome and I don't have to feel bad about drinking it all now, knowing that it will not be as good if it sits.
So did we find out exactly(factually) how many cases of Cherry Rye were produced, or at least shipped to wholesalers/retailers?
