    The real humor is that this has been out for how long and many of these states still haven't seen it.

    Bourbon county coffee made it to my local liquor store here in NJ about a week ago which really surprised not just me but also the employees that work there. I mean I don't live anywhere near a big city...about 90 minutes or so is the closest one. The fact that it showed up in my relatively small town was shocking.

    Now if only I could find me some Cherry Rye...what a wonderful day that would be.

    No sightings in vt yet, got regular bcbs and big John about 2 months after distro said bcbs was supposed to arrive. Seems like a combo of GI expanding into new markets too quickly and AB distributors that have no idea what they are doing with this kind of product.

    Apparently some BCBS even made it's way to Wegmans in southeastern PA! Of course, it's gone now, before I had a chance to snag a bottle. Being a beer nerd is HARD WORK YO!

    I hear that. Per the beer manager in my local Binny's when Cherry was released there were a dozen or so people waiting around in the store every day when it was expected to hit for the beer truck just to arrive. I mean, while it is an incredible stout lets bring it down to reality a bit. It almost frightens me to see how obtaining this stuff has been a life consuming event for some people.

    Never done that kind of thing. If I can find it I will grab what I can.
