    This worked really well for BCBS, so why not start it for BCBCS, Cherry Rye, and Bolt Cutter...

    Anyone seen these yet in the Hoosier State?

    Havent seen any of the bcbs variants but i had no problem finding a bunch of regular bcbs.

    Bolt Cutter im guessing is long gone, at least at the stores i got it from.

    Lets hope NWI gets SOME coffee and cherry rye

    My store in central Indy got Bolt Cutter and Enjoy By today. Bolt Cutter is almost gone (2 bottles left), and from what my rep said (who is not trustworthy at all) that I may see BCBCS on Tuesday or Wed. When I asked about Cherry Rye he said "What's that?"
    Hope this can give some help to people.

    Saw Bolt Cutter on the shelf at Trail Inn in Valpo on Wednesday. I think it was $22.99.

    Bolt Cutter should've hit most stores this week.

    I missed out on Bolt Cutter and Cherry Rye, anyone know of any in Indy that they're not going to be purchasing by chance?

    I don't think Cherry Rye has made it down to these parts yet, dude. BCBS Coffee, either.

    So you're saying I'm SOL on Bolt Cutter?

    Bolt Cutter. We still haven't got the BC variants in IN. (at least to the best of my knowledge)

    Every store around here still claims to be in the dark about the BCBS variants...

    They will be. Zink is always 4-6 weeks behind. Let's hope they don't get cute and try the retail bar sales only like they did with King Henry.

    bolt cutter hit down here on wednesday and was gone asap... i'm not holding my breath for coffee and cherry rye showing up anytime soon, if the late arrival of bcbs for everyone south of indy was any indication of delivery trends

    Talked to a shop owner 2 weeks ago and he told me as far as he knew only large stores were going to get any. His words were shops like Binnys. I don't know if he thought only Binnys, or shops in Indiana that can pull that kind of volume.

    Bolt Cutter hit Evansville today. I only know of one store for sure(Winetree East), and they only got one case. It was gone on release, if the number of people in the store were any indication.

    Picked up a bottle of BCBCS at Big Red Liquors in Bloomington last night. Was just in town for a concert and was extremely happy to just stumble across this one :). Went to the smaller store and the guy said the bigger big red got a case or two. Good luck!

    Thanks for the tip. Picked one up today. Doesn't look like we're getting Cherry Rye in these parts.

    There will probably be less than 250 bottles of Cherry in Indiana.

    I was in Valpo for the night last night and picked up a bottle of Coffee at Godfather's on 30. They said they got four cases and it was going fast. One per customer and they also had Nightstalker. No Cherry Rye.

    With such a low number, think they'll go mainly on-premise like they did with KH?

    That's not what I've heard so far but we will see. I think we got more KH than Cherry Rye.

    Godfathers in Valpo officially out as of that bottle I just bought. Went to Pats earlier and the guy acted like they never had it.

    Last bottle on the shelf, I assume? They were only putting one bottle out at a time. After I grabbed the one on the shelf, I looked around. They went behind the counter and grabbed another and put it on the shelf. Unless they told you that you got the last one, in which case nevermind.

    I was told that it was their final bottle. I assumed that was true.

    I was at Pat's last night and the had like 10-15 on the shelf by the register. I guess they sold out last night.

    Was at Pat's earlier, and they still have some Coffee left. It is in the back. You have to ask for it.

    Managed to scrounge up a couple of Bolt Cutters in the last few days -- probably the last ones left -- but no one in the Fishers area (including a couple of NE Indy stores that are served by Zinc) seems to know anything about the BCBS variants.

    Yep, I was one of them. I had a customer at my bar on Friday morning who claimed he got one (a Bolt Cutter) from a Liquor Locker in town though I can't confirm the truth in that...

    I picked up a couple Bolt Cutters at Bloomingfoods a few days ago. About 5 or so remained.

    drevim Initiate (0) Oct 12, 2012 Indiana

    If Backwoods is any indicator, then it is possible. Since Winetree and LL were the only two to get it in. Again, I can't confirm that, either. Crossing over regions, I saw at least one bottle of Bolt Cutter at Shenanigans in Bowling Green, KY on the shelf last night.

    See you at the next Tracker gathering, or at Tin Man, Andy.

    Jason at LL said they did get a case of Bolt Cutter last week and of course it did go fast though not as fast as WT. Adam (WT) and Jason (LL) both said they aren't optimistic on any of the variations, especially Cherry, reaching our fair city since those in charge seem to oblivious to their release/exsistence. We are currently trying our luck with the southern Indiana GI rep to see if this sad story can hopefully have a happy ending.

    I am positive I'll see you at one of those places...I hear the 12th could be a special release day ;)
