    Anyone see either of these around town? I've been unsuccessful so far...my hopes aren't high for the BA Bigfoot but I figured we get some Palate Wrecker.

    Flying Goat got a keg of Palate Wrecker right when it came out, but I havent seen it in bottles. I have been looking too. No sign of BA Bigfoot either, but I will call around and let you know if I hear anything.

    Was just at total wine today. Didn't see BA Bigfoot but they did have regular Bigfoot 4 packs for $8.

    Fuckin total wine customer service is worthless. I called, asked for the beer dept, and asked if they were getting it. They said they had (regular) Bigfoot. I say no the Barrel Aged one....clickity clickity clickity clack... "I don't see that as something we're going to get."

    Then I find out a couple weeks later they got some and sold out. What's the deal? How do you get the scoop on any release at that place?

    I know. They have one dude there that knows beer, but he obviously can't be there all the time. Everyone else is totally clueless. When Abyss was out I called and asked if they had any and they insisted that had it in 6 packs, and when I tried to gently mention that Abyss does not come in 6 packs, they got all idignant.

    I picked up a bottle of BA Bigfoot today at total wine. They said they got 2 cases in and were only selling one bottle per customer. I managed to get mine before lunchtime so I can't guarantee there being any left. They are going for 12.99 a piece.

    I guess Green Flash was at Total Wine yesterday. Anyone go? I was hoping to maybe get a swig of Palate Wrecker but I couldn't make it.

    Huck's just got in a case of Palate Wrecker yesterday. Wasn't on the shelf as of 4pm. Just ask LouAnne or Drew.

    They also just got in a bunch of newer New Belgium beers.

    And Sucaba 2013, they had a couple bottles set aside for me that I turned down, dunno if they're gonna make the shelf....

    Picked up 4 12 oz bottles. Of course they'll probably get it down the street from me tomorrow.
