Huh? You responded to the wrong post
There was considerable debate about this in the other thread. Bottom line is Vav said he checks his invoices very closely and $19.99 in Chicago is the right price. Other retailers chimed in that the wholesale price was more than the $13.99 or $14.99 that some stores sold it for.
I must have been pretty damn lucky. Found it at a local bodega for $9.99 with no limit in Brooklyn. I was amazed and bought several.
Well my local store just got in some Bourbon County Coffee! I was so excited until they told me $35.70 per bottle. They are very honest. I told them that I understand markups, but I can't justify paying this price. They told me that their distributor charged them $24.00 a bottle and then showed me. What's going on with distribution and pricing. Is our distributor just jacking retailers on pricing? I'm all for making a profit, but this just seems out of line. I would love for someone to chime in on this.
Except that the first step is that Goose sells the beer to a distributor -- if that price goes higher, then the distributor charges the retailer more who, in turn, charges the consumer more.
Or it is possible that Goose is selling bottles at the same price as ever and the distributor is the one jacking up the prices this year.
Out of curiosity what store? (won't snipe you I am all good on them so shoot me a convo if that is an issue). That just seems excessive and out of line with rest of the area.
Paid $16.99 for a bottle today in Northern KY.
When a few bottles showed up in West Michigan yesterday, they were $13.69 plus deposit. I love (most of) my local beer retailers.
Yep, that's what i was saying, or actually was explaining how stores were selling it below wholesale.
Peeped prices today at 2 stores, $11.99-17.50. Both places normally sell limited releases at same rates, weird.
$11.99 in northern Virginia
In the Minneapolis area it first hit stores late on a Tuesday and they were charging between $13.99-15.99. The next day around noon (after it made it to several more retailers) the price started to shoot up. I was actually at one store, where the price on the shelf (and in the system) was $13.99, the manager came running out of his office to stop the cashier from completing the transaction. According the the manager he had just gotten off the phone with the distributor who called to let them know that they had sold Coffee to the first wave of accounts at the wrong price, last years price, and that they would be re-invoicing them for the correct amount. So instead of paying $13.99, I was charged $20.99.
At another store I had the clerk tell me just about the same story, "Had you been here this morning, this bottle would have only been $14.99. Distributor gave us the wrong price! Sucks, now it's $21.99. Last bottle, do you want it?"
it hits shelf in NJ in January
Weird pricing with this stuff is the result of all of the in between of the 3 tiers. Here on Long Island, I've seen Coffee(after tax) $20-24 and Cherry Rye from $21-$27 per bottle. Was able to buy more than 1 Coffee once. Everyone is taking names and limiting to 1 Bottle with Cherry Rye, because all the distributors who were even lucky enough to receive it have gotten no more than 1 case.
So...where'd you find the KBS???
Just an empty carrier pinned to my desk amongst drawings from my kids. All the important things.
$18.99 in Long Island where I am currently visiting....Cherry is $24.99 :/
Just bought a bottle that was marked $29.99 talked him down to $25.
If they priced it at $14 they didn't change their pricing and lost money. Cases cost about $169 for retailers. Bottles went everywhere from $19.99 to $29.99 from what I heard in Indiana.
It'll cost me $10 in gas to drive to your house, use the ether rag I have prepared to knock you out, take your stash and then drive home.
So, in Indiana, they're $10 for a case of mixed years.
Fail-safe pickup line if I've ever heard one.
Goodbye De Dolle stash!
