    I got a 4 pack at Ardmore station in Villa Park, but the guy said it was his last.

    This hit NWI today and was able to grab two 4-packs at $10.49. What was this going for elsewhere? The SKU was not in the system so the guy sold it to me for same as Breakfast Stout...seemed fair due to the limitied availability.

    I paid about $10 or so for it in Milwaukee the other week.

    Just left FFF and stopped at one of my "go to" places on the way home in NWI. Had a full case sitting on the shelf (6-4packs) and an unopened case sitting on the floor. $10.49/4pack. No limit. Dated 10/4/12. I picked up 2-4packs. The rest is for the taking. Let me know if you want more info

    Funny, he told me the same thing last Wednesday. Also told me I got his last "this one goes to eleven". And I bought a sixer of Gumballhead (his last) without realizing it was priced $14.99 until I was in the parking lot looking at the receipt. I'll be carefull at this place in the future. Caveat emptor.

    Dirty Nellies has it on tap, at least did a few days ago Saturday. It is great. Order one of them then a Broo Doo, truly a wet hops wonder.

    I got two four packs yesterday. No bottle date on any of the bottles. I assume it was all bottled on 10/4. Do they ever put a date on the case without dating the individual bottles?

    I saw it in the case. Only about 4 or 5 4-packs were in there. Went back the next day and they were gone. Sucks!

    They had a few cases at Friar Tucks in Savoy as of 5pm today. They also had single bottles in Urbana at the Corkscrew. Binny's had three cases this weekend. Friar Tuck would be your best be $10.99 a four pack.

    Got the last 4-pack at a place on the SW side. Wasn't on the shelf but behind the counter/register. Awesome stuff. Have a few places I can check and likely will do that before the Bears game tmw.

    Plenty around here, about an hour west of Chicago.

    Could easily get a case or two for myself if I wanted, only grabbed a single 4 pack thus far though.

    Fischman Liquors & Tavern had a bunch yesterday. Single bottles. 2 bottles limit. Not sure if there are any left, though. Fischman's is on Milwaukee & Lawrence in Jefferson Park (Chicago).
