The choices made by bars and shops around here are definitely unique.
I think I know a few people heading to Chicago for the event. If any of those people get an extra bottle or two at the event we should just agree to have a bottle share which includes those bottles.
#jalapenobaconcheddarrolls God Damn i love their jalapeno bacon cheddar rolls.
BCBS, Caliente, Shadyside, Penn Brewery.
When all is said and done, Caliente will probably be "selling" a bottle of BCBS for $35 or so (assuming 4 pours from each bottle for $9+ a pour). That's insane.
Just so Im understanding this right, you have to buy a ticket to get into this event at the bar, and tickets go on sale at 10:30 Friday? Does that mean that Caliente is closed to the public that day? Not that I am going, but how does one buy a ticket to said event?
Also I guess I retract my earlier statement about places holding back 14 BCBS, althought it still seems isolated to the Pittsburgh area. (I apologize that I am not researching other events in other cities, but still havent run across anything saying other cities events have this available).
No they sell individual tickets for small pours (~5 oz) for like $8 a piece. It's a pretty fair way to do it when that place is packed I guess, but they make out like bandits.
I love BCBS, but I don't think a 5oz pour of anything is worth dealing with that mess.
I don't think any beer is worth dealing with any of this mess.
Yeah let's make those selfish pricks share! I got my pitchfork ready.
My guess is that they got a keg as well but they are going to sit on it (like a lot of places did last year)
Not sure if its been mentioned but looks like there is a new brewery on the horizon for early 2016. War Streets Brewery on Arch in the Mexican War Streets.
Tasting party on November 28th.
Looks like old firehalls seem to be the architecture de jour for breweries

Limit two on BCBS 14 and 15 isn't bad for these parts.
When I just read that on twitter I totally took it as the entire store got 2 bottles of each haha
I know most of you don't care about Pittsburgh North, but news from Erie is Lavery's holiday seasonal, Devil Bird, is coming out this week. It's one I enjoy to get each year
Does that see distro down to Pgh? I've never noticed it.
Yep, awesome beer. They're also barrel aging their Ulster Breakfast Stout for a release late on.
And I don't know if it goes to Pittsburgh. I've seen it on shelves of Giant Eagle and Wegmans around here, so I know it at least gets distributed locally. I'd put money on Carson Street Deli getting some.
Thanks for the tip! I'm a fan of this beer...especially at the price..but only if this bottle has white wax at the top like previous years. I'll be up in Erie for Thanksgiving and am hoping to see it on Wegman's shelves again...
I don't know what color they will use this year. I think they used Red the last two years (or maybe I am wrong). I agree it's a really great Porter. I wish there was more barrel character the last couple years, but for the price, it is awesome.
I usually grab a couple, so if you don't see it on your trip, I will be in the area for Thanksgiving, so hit me up before you drive past Meadville. I may run up to Lavery this weekend and grab one or two before it hits Wegman's. I like to usually buy stuff from the breweries themselves before resorting to Wegman's even if it's a buck or so more.
Agree that it's not the most barrel-forward BA beer, but again...for the price and availability, I def enjoy it.
Thanks for the offer, man - definitely appreciated. If I don't see it around, I'll hit you up...I'd probably be making my way back through Meadville Friday morning/early afternoon...
