    I believe they will still be calling people today (11/27). Why do you think you missed out?

    Call them today. I doubt you're out of luck.
    If so, give me a shout.

    ^ This. They still had a good amount left over last year after the onslaught of calls. They make plenty of this stuff, I bet they will still have some.

    They seem to be going in order. Sure you just didn't miss the call? I was 9/27 around 12:30pm

    Might be worth a call to them.

    Got a call earlier and they left a message. Just called back for billing info, they said it will ship out on Monday. So excited. Finally live in a state that will let me get beer shipped. Unfortunately my wallet is not so happy. I already did too much damage to it over the weekend, but... BEER!!!

    Got my call and can't wait to try it. (Unfortunately, being from PA, I have to wait until I visit family to actually taste it.)

    I received my call yesterday, but didn't recognize the 503 number so I let it got to voice. (thought it may have been the old divorce attorney). Listened and was pleasantly excited. I thought, for some reason, that was all allocated months ago, and never got the call. Got the case coming my way, the wife will be more than pleased I am sure. I can put if right next to the case of cascade I ordered in its place.

    Might need another divorce attorney if you keep buying cases of expensive beer!

    Just got my call from the always friendly Ken! He handled that shit show situation from last year so well, I was blown away when I finally got on the phone with him to order. He's a real class act, customer service expert! I sent my email on Oct. 16th, and have a case coming so keep your fingers crossed ya'll.

    Just got my case as well. Sent my email on the 10th of October. Ken was great and the whole thing was quick and painless. Other than dropping $280 on a case once shipping is included...

    23 bucks per bottle of world class BA Barleywine delivered right to your door, from more than 1800 miles away? Well, well worth it.

    Painful price point- would love to see this stuff in 12-ouncers to stretch out the stash- but that didn't stop me from splitting a case with someone. Incredible brew.

    MoaS for $23 on my front step vs. chasing Bolt Cutter for $25, easy choice.

    The only reason its painful for me is timing. Just paid to renew my Bruery Reserve Society membership. -300. Paid the 2nd half of my 50/50 Eclipse futures+shipping to my trustee. -250. Case of MoaS. -280. And now BCBS is gonna show up soon, and I'm gonna try and get as much of that as I can... but with the current state of my wallet, that might just be a four pack >_<.

    Any one of these things by itself wouldn't be so bad, but nooooo... everyone's gotta release all the good beer at the same time.

    Being a Beer Nerd is expensive.

    This is why BA needs a "Love" button.

    I didn't email until October 28, and I just got my call, so there is definitely hope for late emailers!

    email received oct 1.
    got call 928 am. missed call and Ken was nice enough to email me.
    I just called back...430 PM. He said there was "some" still available
    I think if you weren't on the the list you could call just to ask if any was left.
    Not sure if that would be annoying to them at this point.
