    Apparently the Tampa Total Wine doesn't have any Black Note yet.

    No idea, give them a call. They didn't know they received it until I told them it was supposed to be there and then they checked in the back. I had previously heard that they were going to be kept behind the front desk and were only getting three cases or so.

    As a heads up, snagged the last bottle of Black Note at around 2:45 PM at the Colonial location. Had 2 buddies pick up separate 4 packs during the day though. They still had Hopslam at a 2 6 pack limit at that point but I heard through the grapevine that there was much whining and gnashing of teeth in the morning over the limit.

    so you were the one? :mad: haha just kidding i called and they had that one bottle on my way to the store i called once more and they had just sold it. luckily my local store guy is getting me a bottle. at least the morning people got a 4 pack can i whine and gnash my teeth over the none i got today? lol stupid college classes. hopslam still plentiful when i was at total wine millenia around 430. picked up a sixer of it and sucks

    edit: seems like you were talking about the hopslam limit lol. Fyi guy at knightly told me that you should be able to purchase a case tomorrow when it comes in if anyone is looking to load up on it.

    I called around 4pm and the guy who picked up looked in the system and said that orlando was getting 3 cases but had no clue about them going to the tampa location. told me to call tuesday cause thats when shipment comes in.

    Sorry buddy. :( I travel for work and was working in Melbourne/Palm Bay today and had caught wind that Black Note may be coming in this morning. My friend swung by regardless to get Hopslam and called me when he grabbed his pack so I literally raced 90 miles to Total Wine and just barely got there.

    Also, I'm assuming you mean a case of Hopslam with Knightly, right?

    You Florida guys have it good. Been mostly 1 6pk per person limits in NC the past few years, and that's when the stores haven't been selling it as singles with an even smaller limit. I think places in Charlotte were selling 2 bottles per person last year.

    Don't even get me started on Black Note... word is 16 cases for the entire state of NC.

    Any idea if the Tampa store has much left? May head down there this weekend but it's a drive for me..
     
  25. blamethemovies

    blamethemovies Mar 11, 2012 Florida

    I can't speak for Tampa I guess, but last year there was a *lot* of Hopslam around after the initial demand subsided a bit in Orlando and I wouldn't be surprised again that in a few weeks we'll see it more freely again. They make a ton of it.
     
  26. rholmes

    rholmes Sep 11, 2012 Florida

    Ok cool. I live about an hour north of Tampa, so that drive would be very disappointing to miss out on some Hopslam.

    if your an hour north of tampa would you be closer to orlando or still too far east and closer to tampa? theres plenty in otown

    Wouldn't be surprised to see those black note bottles appear tomorrow at Sams..... That would make sense if they sold them during the Bells tap takover

    Bad news on Black Note in Tampa. From what I understand, JJ Taylor has Black Note in, but they're holding cases of it ransom for large (around 10 cases) orders of Best Brown. Hopefully no one bites on their gambit and they'll release them legitimately sometime soon.

    Want to guess how far out of date that Best Brown is and how many pallets they have? That's a pretty shitty move on their part, if true.

    Update:

    TW in Sarasota and Dale Mabry in Tampa are both out of Hopslam. TW in Sarasota is starting to be a major bummer for me. I used to be able to get anything that came in there, but lately most releases last a day and it's gone. I have resorted to trades and buying online for the most part.

    Black Note is rare guys, only two cases hit the Piedmont 1 went to Bestway, not sure where Leslie said the other one landed. I got a bottle which is quite nice, new one for me. Hopslam next week I'd guess.
