    ISO: someone complaining about the InBev takeover on principle who won't take buy any BCBS in the 31-32 states that will get it. The whitest of whales.

    That doesn't mean we'll be able to actually buy it. I live in NoVA and usually strike out on the limited releases. Even with both VA and DC to work with I've not scored any limited releases in quite a long time. I'll try like always but I'm not getting my hopes up. Maybe if I didn't have to work every day I could score these beers.

    I feel like I should put out an ISO for BCBS to be cool. If anyone wants to join, let me know. I'm thinking 10 4-packs for a BlÄbaer or 12 4-packs for Bourbon Vanilla DL. Then, I can be a true Beer Advocate!

    I was wondering where all those people went. Presumably in states that never got bcbs before, but now that they do they will just pretend they never disowned GI.

    This reminds me of when 120 minute disappeared for a year. Everyone got real excited and then it is once again available year round and the madness ceased (in states without a pointless abv cap at least). Hopefully I'm right and when there is enough to go around it will be the almost year round beer it was.

    i wonder what the odds are of finding a case. probably slim, but i feel like anything short of that won't be enough. ;)

    Apparently these areas of VA will not be getting BCS unless the distributor has not been informed of the fact that they are getting an extremely desired beer in their area. Its possible I could be wrong but i talked to some people this morning who are fairly well informed with the distribution system and this is what i have heard. Crossing my fingers that I am wrong.

    Tennessee?!? Really? Not to hate on this, but why are Arkansas and Missouri not getting any when they have had GI disrtibution longer. Why would they send it to a new account and not to an already established market?

    Clearly you need some economics learnin'. Same reason they distributed no KH to Indiana and instead sent all ours to NY. Flood the new market with awesome and gain customer base. Simple.

    See, I'm in Econ 101 this semester and we haven't covered that yet. ;-)

    I guess it makes sense. But I guess I'm a bit more old school in my thoughts about rewarding loyal/long term customers first. Oh well. I have family in TN. I should still be able to get some.

    Am I misunderstanding what he is saying? I assume since Va Beach, Norfolk, Chesapeake etc aren't listed that we'll still be able to get it in our general area right?

    Haha, I am just giving you crap, since my area seems to always get the short end of the beer distro...
