    I totally flaked picking some up when release. Anyone still seeing it on shelves in between Temecula and Carlsbad?

    eh, fuck those guys.

    I'm sure that with discount, it'll still be over priced. But hey, if you bring in out of state whales to trade, maybe you'll get special access to stuff that any other store would normally put out on the shelf.

    They didn't number the bottles this year, suggesting that they made more than normal. Have seen it sitting at La Bodega.

    Neither have they posted any updates on anything on their website in almost 6 months!! Nothing on Falling Leaf (no surprise there, right?), nothing on Pugachev's Cobra and nothing on Chandelle! And that was released just this past weekend.

    Best part of it all? No updates to the Barrel Roll Club info (membership or quarterly allocation) since December 2014!! WOW!

    I'm not sure who their webmaster is, but you gotta keep this stuff current if you expect to attract customers and build a good reputation.

    I'm guessing maybe it's the person the owner had the affair with that keeps their company in the potential financial ruin that it is in. :wink:

    Please share which locations, as most (good) traders are a ways away from me. Will travel for beer!

    It's really hard to find at TJ's since the price is the best around ($15.99). Total Wine should have some. Call around. I have some extra if you really run out of options. Picked up a few too many I think (1 case)... :rolling_eyes:

    I've seen it at the Trader Joe's in Burbank (on Riverside), Sherman Oaks (on Riverside once again) and in Woodland Hills (on Ventura.) I recently stopped at the Sherman Oaks one this past weekend and they still had a ton.

    wait.. did the time frame for barrel roll members pick up come and go? I didn't see it in any of the emails and I even emails them asking about it, if it was this weekend earlier this week and they haven't bothered to reply.
