Discussion in 'Beer Releases' started by YaKnowBrady, Sep 13, 2012.
I just peed a little.
I paid $19.99
$19.99-29.99 per 4pack depending on the store. Andersonville was selling individual bottles at $9.99 per bottle. large retailers (read: Binnys) will be in 19-23$
Just started working down town at Willis Tower, can anyone recommend a place near by that would carry BCS? Most the places out in the burbs where I live will be out by the time I get off of work tomorrow when most places out my way get their stash. Thanks!!
I got my hands on a Coffee and a Bramble (also a King Henry) earlier this year around January - March-ish in Grand Rapids.
That said, I'm going to sit on this one for a bit, because I'm not able to buy any at this point, and being that it's supposedly going to be released year round, I'll wait until the fervor dies down so I can casually stroll in and buy some rather than wait in line and have to stab the person in front of me to get a 4 pack.
There is 5 times more but I don't recall previous releases going out to as many states. I'm betting it won't be any easier to get than the last 2 releases, which I missed out on.
I haven't scored any regular BCBS (without trading for it) since 2009.
can you get a leon or 2?
You may want to try the wine store in the French Market at the Ogilvy train station. They have some pretty good choices and every so often some surprises. Added bonus is the Belgium Frites place in the market.
Stores are sold out already, you guys are vultures!
Pretty good chance I'll be buying a good portion of the allotment North Dakota gets since there are only a few stores where selling BCS would be acceptable. Still coming to grips that it will be sold here.
are you 100% that its above 12%? also, I saw Mephistopheles labelled at 16.43% sitting on shelves here in NC (where the cap is 15%).
I know Goose Island has a Beer Finder on their site but for those who live in Southern California, what are some stores that are most likely to carry it? Am I going to be able to walk into a BevMo the day of and find it on the shelves?
This year's is 15%, I do believe.
I would love to try, but alas I cannot this year. Enjoy tho!
Has anyone seen any BCBS pop up in WI yet, particularly the Madison area?
Yes....15% ABV on the 2012 label.
I was out of town on Wednesday but my wife was able to grab 2 four packs at Binnys Downers Grove. She was there for the 9 a.m. release & said the wait was not bad at all.
what have people been paying for these?
$21.99 for a 4-pack from Binny's.
I was in Chicago a few days ago and got some at Dalal liquors at State and Hubbard. $25 a 4 pack. Lots of FFF also.
I stopped at Steve's Liquor on Saturday and asked about it and they were holding a lottery for a chance to buy a 4-pack.
I barely got 2 four packs after much searching. My part of the far west burbs sucked.
My buddy's in Eastern PA now. Any sightings of bottles around Philly / DC / NoVa / Maryland?
there was some at the woodmans in kenosha today, 19.99/4pack limit of 1 (4 pack) per person they had 8 cases. Might still be some left
I scored a case of BCS at my local liquor store, the new clerk had no clue what they were. He just commented, wow that's expensive for only a four pack. 47th and California.
there was a second wave that hit my area today
It hit Ridgeview Liquor in Green Bay last friday. I picked up the limit of 2 4-packs Saturday morning. They sold half of their 10 cases on Friday already.
So I have a friend that is flying out to Chicago tonight to run the Chicago marathon this weekend and she's agreed to pick me up some BCS while she is there. She's staying near Downtown Chicago. Where should I tell her to check? Any help is greatly appreciated!
hopefully there's some left, for some reason when bcbs is released it kicks in everyone's hoarder instinct (I am not immune to this)
I was there 2 weeks ago and picked up some at Dalal food & liquor at State and Hubbard. They are a small, unassuming store, so they may still have some left. $25 a 4pk
the trick to finding bcbs in chicago now is look at the smaller stores. the only people that are going to get shut out that live in chicago relied exclusively on huge stores like binnys that sell out in a half hour. there's a few spots, mentioned in that chicago thread, that still have some, and there's probably a whole bunch more that aren't mentioned. good luck.
You guys are awesome. Thank you. I'll let you know if we have any luck!
Around $30 here in NY
I made friends with the beer guy at my local liquor store, and I have been lucky to pick up two 4 packs over the past month. I've paid $22 a piece for each 4 pack.
I got 2 from Sicilianos in Grand Rapids on Tuesday, they had 4 more bottles. I paid right around $5 a bottle. I heard it was not selling all that fast around here.
Anyone see any local sightings. I am trying to get a half a case to a case for a friend without getting but raped. If anyone has seen any local to Chicago or the south suburbs please let me know.
Picked some up today from Apple Bite Mart. He said he had a bit more in the back, so just ask. It was 23.99
And when are the variants due to be out?
I read on Goose Island's site that the coffee/rye variations were released in February of this year, so hopefully Februrary 2013?
