    Honker's Ale available at Halfway House in Starkville. I know it's not BCBS, but I was quite shocked to walk in a Mississippi bar and see Goose Island banners hanging from the ceiling. Plus I'm seeing BCBS might hit Tennessee distribution next week (via Chicago Tribune), though I'd probably be more shocked to see that happen.

    BCBS is supposed to be going year round, so you will get it...eventually.

    BCBS is never coming to MS unless the state raises the ABV limit again. I gotta say, that is one mighty fine beer. I've noticed GI is expanding all over the south. Must be nice to have that distribution network & money behind the brand.

    I've read AB-Inbev has plans to have Goose Island in all states by 2014. And if laws stop them, you better believe they will toss money to the right people and change the laws. I've been waiting on Goose Island to hit TX for a while now.
