    I know it hit in Raleigh on this past Friday. Looks like it's sold out at Bottle Rev and Tasty now.

    I always find it interesting to see comments like this. Some places see cases just piling up on the floor, while the stuff flies off the shelf in a day or two in other locales.

    For better or worse, DFW is NOT one of those locales in which anything of varying specialty sits by the case.

    Was willing to snag 2 of these despite the $20 price point, just because of how much I enjoyed BA Bigfoot and how much I respect SN in general. Yet to crack the first one open though. To those in raleigh that might b interested, there were 2 left at Tylers bottle shop as of last night.

    Dang, it really grinds my gears that we cannot get this in Ohio. Would anyone take pity and send a bottle this way?

    Indeed. My Binny's got only a single case, although the price was a little better at $19.99. I was lucky it showed up during my lunch so I could snag one.

    Probably Binny's Grand. They only got one case and it was gone in 10 minutes.

    Yup. $19.99 retail, $21.92 out the door. One bottle went to some random who was there for something else and asked what we were waiting for, having no idea what this beer was.

    Arrived—and nearly all left—the Raleigh-Durham area on Friday. There's sporadic sightings here and there, but it went fast. $20.99 seemed to be the average price.

    Highland Park Binny's posted it on Twitter a few hours ago. I just picked one up for $20 and believe they had a few left.

    Was excited to see this at the store the other day, then I saw the price.

    $20 is crazy for a bomber, barrel aged or not. Anyone here willing to pay $65 for a 6-pack of this? Cause that's what the math works out to!

    Earlier in this thread I said $20 was too much for me, but I went into a small shop looking for something else and saw they had it for $14.99. I pulled the trigger at that price which is where I'd expect it to go for. Also I'd just been hired at my first real job out of college so I felt like celebrating.

    Then again people pay ~$20 for Bruery beers so BA Narwhal isn't a huge stretch.

    For what it is worth, when the BA-Bigfoot was released a couple years back, we retailed it at $15. I was only allotted one case, so expecting that to be the case this time around as well.

    I think Peabodys in Boone has some, Chris thought they got 5 cases or so. Amazing how Boone gets 5x the volume as a Binnies but I suppose so much competation kinda spreads things out.

    Its a 750 ml bottle not a bomber.

    That's only 3 more ounces, not really a big difference. The price per ounce would be comparable to a $10 bottle of BCBS, which people would say is a rip off for what is probably a better beer.
