    Thanks for the heads up, local spot I go to shows in stock. Cost? I will find out soon.

    Best of luck here. I visited the SN Beer Finder earlier today and it stated my local Retail Beer Distributor has this beer in stock. I just got back from visiting the store and the fellow told me that they received 6 bottles a few days ago and all 6 got sold that day. I asked about the price: $27 (plus tax).

    My local Retail Beer Distributor just received some Trillium beers (they were placed on the shelf 1/2 hour earlier). One of the four packs was priced at $28.00 (plus tax) and as I was eyeing up these beers a young lady picked up that four-pack. I said to her: "Boy, you are rich". Later the guy working the store told me she already purchased five other four-packs and came back to buy that one as well (one each of the various Trillium brands?). After she walked out the store the thought of "Did you win the Powerball?" popped into my head but it was too late then to say it. I have had Trillium beers several times in the past and I thought those beer were good but nowhere close to $28 a four-pack good.

    I'd check the beerfinder jaycase posted. It looks like it's in a lot of places around Philly but I'm not willing to drive that far for more.

    Depending on what the beer is, the Trillium 4-pack cost at the brewery could be $24, so it might not be as much of a mark up as you think.

    My 10 year Pappy aged Budweiser would like a word.

    This sounds like a potential missed dating opportunity.

    Using that "find their beer" tool in the first post, there were 7 places that received this Bigfoot within 50 miles of me.

    The Total Wine in Pleasant Hill received a case, and sold out yesterday.

    That left a BevMo (sold out), and four (4) Safeways. One of those Safeways in Pleasanton had 6 left, now they have three after the three I took home. If you call and talk with their beer/wine guy named Robert, he can hook you up and hold you one. He helped out a guy who drove up from Silicon Valley this morning for a bottle.

    Safeway list price is $37 plus tax & .10 CRV, if you have a Safeway card you get $7 off.

    One place I did not call was the Safeway in Alamo - so they may still have some as well, or they may be sold out. Best call first.

    Happy hunting!

    At this point, you'll likely have to trade for it or buy it on secondary.
