    Yea, I didn't get what was up his ass. But both people went in the back to check for me.

    The sense it makes is that some shops got literally one case, and they're trying to share it with as many regular customers as possible.

    They don't mind if you bring in food and they have a binder full of takeout menus by the bar.

    I am in management for Safeway in NorCal, and I know most of these guys going into the back wouldn't even know what Celebration or Sculpin is. Until I brought Sculpin into my store, nobody there had ever even heard of it. Safeway isn't ver craft savvy unless you are in an upscale market, and even then the liquor guys have NO clue.

    Liquid Experience in San Francisco (Upper Haight) just received a case of Vanilla and BCBBW today. From what I understand, no limits.

    that's the thing, most people doing 1 bottle limits are doing it just to be dicks and maximize profits with mark ups or trying to weasel in new customers by offering them a BC.

    You're correct. I've asked several shops with 1 bottle limits, that I've stopped through recently, how much they got and most got 4, 5 or 6 cases worth.

    I've more than had my fill so... for anyone in the central LA area still looking for BCBS, here are the places I know of that still have it right now:

    Cap N' Cork in Los Feliz - Regular BCBS, 1 bottle limit, $7.99 each
    Sunset Beer Co in Echo Park - Regular BCBS, 2 bottle limit, $6.41 each - fyi these are the GOLD cap bottles
    BevMo Pasadena - Regular BCBS. Not sure on the limit or price

    Just picked up a Vanilla. Coffee is expected to show up next week. I would hold off on trying to trade for it for the people looking. Seems like it is still hitting the shelves.

    It was Liquid Experience in San Francisco (Upper Haight). Based on @elev8917 post, all the Vanilla is gone.

    There's Vanilla at cork n bottle in San Luis obispo, for the low,low price of
    $99.99. Asked why it's so much?... "We are in a shitty economy, and this is one of the rarest beers in the world so it is gonna be pricy" if I bought 2 he would take off 10$ On the purchase.... Nawwww I'm good !

    Picked up Barleywine and Coffee in East Bay today. Or at least I thought I did; Barleywine is 2014, but I realized once I was home that the Coffee was actually 2013 bottles, d'oh! Oh well; I've not had a bottle in a while but I'm sure it's still tasting great.

    Wonder if this is distributor shenanigans or what. Was at BevMo and they brought it out from the back, arrived today (which is why I didn't bother inspecting the bottle on arrival).

    Aged 2013 coffee still tastes better than fresh 2014.

    Same thing happened to me. I was at Harry's Hoffbrau in San Leandro yesterday and they had bottles of BCBBW and BCBCS at 1 bottle limit of each. When I checked the BCBCS later I realized it was 2013. Look forward to doing a side-by-side with 2014. FYI, Beer Rev also got 1 case of BCBBW yesterday. They had bottles to go, limit of 1.

    Scored 8 coffee singles this week, 3 of em yesterday. Thrilled to have landed it since camping out on black friday just isn't an option. Now if the vanilla gods would smile down on me my life would be complete.

    Where in the east bay may I ask? Anyone know if whole foods (norcal) received any vanilla/barley/coffee variants?

    I went to whole foods on Gilman today and noticed that Barleywine was sold out. They had an empty shelf with the price tag telling me that they must of had some come in within the last day or so.

    I just picked up two 2013 Coffees around noon today at Whole Foods in Berkeley. There were at least 4 Barleywines as well and I think additional Coffee or regulars tucked deeper into the fridge. GL.

    Sounds like most of the East Bay got '13 Coffee instead of '14. Hear Beer Revolution, along with the Berkeley Whole Foods mentioned above, also got '13, and I got '13 from the BevMo I visited last week.

    Beer Rev got Vanilla yesterday too. I'm out of town but I'm guessing it's gone by now.
