    Is anyone having a hard time locating GI Lolita in the Chicago market? I keep looking and am being told that even with a "one bottle limit" no one can keep it in stock..

    Is it hype, bad luck or just that hard to find?

    Some stores, from what I understand, have gotten additional shipments of Lolita. You try Whole Foods? When I called a few of the WH to get on the list for Juliet, each store would either mention a future shipment of Lolita or if I was interested in some they already had hidden in the backroom.

    Have seen it at quite a few places. Those places that do have it, it is $16 +.

    It's friggine everywhere by me, it'll probably sit on the shelves for months, if your having trouble locating it I can buy you a bottle if you don't mind driving to the suburbs to meet me

    If you are a city guy and come up empty handed let me know. I'll pass along a couple places I saw it sitting on shelves last week. Can't guarantee still there. Great beer that will only get better with age.

    North side, Kedzie and Montrose area, there is a Foremost liquors. They have bottles at $20 with no purchase limit. Feel free to call ahead and ask how much they have, but the guy running it is known to increase (even more) the cost of a bottle if he knows its in demand. Show up, grab 1, and ask how many more he has that way you know the price already. He seems like the kind of guy that may haggle, too, though i've never tried.

    I've been seeing it in the burbs at quite a few places. As cheap as $14.99 and as high as 19.99

    I have 4 bottles left on the shelf here at Mainstreet Liquors in Countryside. It's $20.99/bottle, but I suppose that's why we still have some.

    This is the correct answer. And they have been for quite a while.
