    Maybe? Did you start counting, get to one and say, "fuck it. This is rough." :wink:

    It was on tap yesterday at Max's and they had bottles for sale. Have not seen any at bottle shops but assume that most of it was already spoken for before it hit shelves.

    I went to a non-NRG place in the city that had BCBS and VR on tap - yes, VR. It was a one time thing so sometimes you find diamonds in the rough. There were about 10 people waiting outside when the doors opened at 11:30am. Note, I never would have known about the tapping except for I ran into a guy at a DC bottle shop that I met the year before at BC event. He was pissed because he couldn't make it because he had "family shit" do to.

    Lol! That's why I used my fingers! :wink:

    Unfortunately my job relocated me to the barren wasteland of macro brew known as College Park and I missed out on the release earlier this week! I am grateful to the OP and wanted to let anyone else looking what they had. :slight_smile:

    Did anyone go to the ChurchKey BCBS event? Was it crazy busy?

    Churchkey was pretty busy, with a long line. About 25 people got 4 ounces of vanilla rye (still great, but would rather have known about the event earlier in the day) and it was gone in minutes. They staggered the entry so that things went pretty smoothly, but after the VR, Rare and 2012, it was time to go.

    I got "the last" one, about 2 hrs ago. At least that's what the lady told me. FWIW they do usually just put one on the counter so you can't see how many they have left, unless you loop back outside and try to see through the window from the street.

    Makes sense. State Line won't have anything until tomorrow afternoon, but even they have no idea how much they'll get.

    Any reports of HTs or the like, with decent amounts of BCBS/BW in NoVA or DC? I got pretty turned off Friday, getting 0'd at Alexandria TW @ 9:25 and then 1 btl at Springfield TW 15 mins later.

    The DC HTs got some, but I think it's all gone by now. I don't think VA ones get them at least none of the three I called. Must be VA Eagle who is arguably the most hated distributor in the area.

    Btw world of beer Arlington just tapped bcbs. I'm gonna walk right past a bcbs-less rustico.

    Anybody know if Costco got in a ton of Gingerbread Stout like they did last year? I know it's not a cool place to shop for beer, but I find stuff pretty easy there.

    Abraxas is the most overpriced non-barrel aged stout on the market. Why are people paying close to $30 for a non-BA stout? What other brewery gets away with that sort pricing?

    Perennial in general is one of the most overpriced breweries on the planet. Abraxas and Sump are two of my favorites, but I'm just never going to spend $25+ on them.

    What a deal. The price/quality of their One Hitter series beers are amazing. This years Born Yesterday was a game changer regarding the hazy IPA's that are coming out at like $18 - $24 per 4/pack. Haven't had this years High Westified, but last year's was one of the better BBA stouts I've had. Economies of scale'd.

    This ^

    Born Yesterday was up there with any of the hazy juice bombs. I bought one six pack, drank three of them and went right back and bought three more. And I rarely buy a case of anything.

    High Westified in six packs?!? Yowza

    Friend said Arrowine got 7 cases of BGBS and had a 4pp limit and already sold out.

    Jeez - I remember seeing BGBS everywhere last year and it sitting until Christmas. Is that not the case anymore?

    I was at Hardywood Saturday for the Rum GBS release and they were about out of BGBS at Hardywood. Last year I believe they had BGBS even at the KCM release. Seems like they either made less or it was more popular this year (I think the latter).

    FYI, Rum GBS is really good. Recommend.

    Any idea if DC got a new drop of the MT stuff? Or is it the same stuff from late August? I love me some Fortunate Islands, but those cans are over 3 months old now, and aren't tasting nearly as good as they did when they were fresh.

    I don't think it's still at whole foods, but if you are still looking, you might call some of the smaller stores in downtown DC that got their Bourbon county today. Rare seems like it's popping up in a lot of places, but not sure if it hits the shelves.

    Pretty sure they have (or at least had) Rare at Hop Cask & Barrel. Might be pricey, though.
