    Wondering if these are still around enough to get a bottle of either. Being a completionist I would like to have these for my Bourbon County tasting coming up. In our group we have pretty large cellars but not sure if we are willing to do what it takes to pull these guys.

    I have no idea what I'm talking about, but wasn't Violet Hour BCBS draft-only?

    Isn't this the draft only Manhattan BCS?

    Chris Quinn poured a small bottle of this at the Beer Temple grand opening. No idea where he came by it.

    You're better than the D! Ive only seen it on tap 3 times. Stout fest, GTMW, and i think it was at the block party

    I know it was bottled (on a very small scale) but have no idea the count of the Violet, I'm assuming 03 is pretty much the same. I know baudoinia was "bottled" as well but that is a different story. There was a guy in my neighborhood who had a bottle of VH but he drank it about a month ago. I'm guessing its a ghost now. Anyone who still has either of these probably has no plans of getting rid of them.
