Where is Northern Eagles located?
picked up a 4pack of bourbon county stout ($21.99) and a 6pack of exit 16($11.99 , its currently a little hard to spot on the shelf, theres no in the fridge) from garys in Wayne
Someone was kind enough to share some Maine Lunch with my friends and I at the Hill Farmstead Harvest Fest. It was really good and held its own drinking next to fresh Heady. unfortunately, the bottle I grabbed over in Philly was not so good. It was within the 90-day Drink It Fresh window printed on the bottle (about 45 days from bottling), but it already had the old IPA taste. Im pumped about getting fresh Lunch in NJ.
That's awesome news, can't wait to see more from them! Thanks for the info.
They do not. Haven't for a few weeks, actually.
Maine Beer Co launched with Hunterdon on Monday. Only sending Peeper for now. Lunch and Zoe are much better but Peeper is still an excellent beer.
How much BCBS did they have? Might pick some up tomorrow if there is any left!
they guy at the counter claimed they were selling it like crazy, but i think i saw 3.8 cases on the floor, plus singles on the shelf. they will have a lot of 4packs still available tomorow
Northern Eagle Beverage, Carlstadt, NJ - AB house, covers Bergen and Passaic.
Went to Gary's on my to my brother in laws house to get a sixer of daytime ipa and saw a stack of cases of Bourbon County was in total shock not expecting to that. Bought a case a little after 6p.m. was like 4 or 5 full cases and four packs on top left. If I had the money I would of bought more but one case is plenty.
thanks... i havent been by there in a few weeks myself, didnt think so, but worth a shot. hopefully some BCBS will be left tomorrow afternoon.
Good to hear! I'd be heading there in the morning anyway so I'd guess I'm good.
Highgrade north got their GI bcbs in friday so accounts that have been asking for it will see it monday-wednesday
Ill be happy if they send me 3-4 cases out of the 28 cases they got
So no BCBS in Somerville Super Saver, Flemington, etc. yet?
I'll pay a finder fee of either a supplication or a heady topper that was canned 2 weeks ago if someone can grab me a 4pack of bcbs. I'm in Allentown pa but out of town for the weekend or else I'd drive over today. (plus I'll pay for the 4pack obviously)
If anyone is interested please beermail me
Shoprite Liquors, Caldwell - $11/Bottle!!!!
Hold me some? haha
And for anyone in Morris County: The Morris Tap and Grill in Randolph posted to facebook that they will be tapping FBS tonight around 5.
Is there any way to see which Highgrade accounts got it?
nope highrades not on fcebook twitter and their website was last updated in 2010
I love Hunterdon. They are probably one of the best distributors in the country about letting consumers know where to find their beer.
They're horrible. They take care of their own.
Why is it horrible to take of your customers?
They take care of stores close to them. None of special releases make it down past red bank into Ocean County.
Just left Gary's in Wayne got a case Of BCBS, had about 4.5 cases left. So glad I don't have to wait to get it in NYC during work or on LI when it comes in.
Picked up some Peeper at Wegmans in cherry hill. They got a few more cases of FBS in too.
Just got back from Gary's with a four pack and a single bottle of BCBS and it looked like 3.5 cases or so left on the floor.
Thanks went around 1 and got my case. Had 4.5 cases then.
I've been able to get plenty of special releases from hunterdon down in south jersey. Stores that move a lot of product get access to the special releases. if the stores in ocean county aren't getting the special releases that you are looking for, then, they aren't putting up the sales numbers that hunterdon is looking for. I used to go to a couple placing down that way when I lived in the area. They used to get most of the special releaseses 2 years ago, but when I stopped by in August, a few of them had dusty old beer that I can consistently find fresh in camden and Gloucester county. That doesn't work in their favor.
2 1/2 cases left of BCBS at Gary's in Wayne. Going for 21.99 a 4 pk. Thanks for the heads up guys. I fucking love this thread.
One less case of BCBS at Wayne's.
picked up 4 4 packs at gary's at about 7:30. they were then down to one four pack and a single bottle.
*Gary's in Wayne
I tried to get a case at Gary's, but they limited me to a 4-pack
Sorry to hear that brewbetter. Judging by this thread I guess it's possible that's all they had left.
Speaking of which is it the norm for Gary's to sell beer this sought after by the case, or was this somewhat of an oversight? When I called I spoke to a nice guy who told me it "seems like a hot ticket" and couldn't guarantee that there would be a case available when I got there.
spoke to 2 of the guys there, including the main beer guy, i think, (Mike) they knew what they had, but got 20 or 22 cases... the dist called them and asked how many they wanted so i think they didnt do limits since i was under the impression they will get more in at some point but figured they had enough to go around
Wow, 22 cases of BCBS. I wonder if the distributor realized what they had. I mean I guess it's no big deal if accounts of similar similar size got similar allocations, but damn that seems like that would be a shit ton of BCBS.
Was at Gary's yesterday and bought four 4 packs myself of BCBS. Should also mention they had fresh Flower Power (bottled 9/27/12)
I think the theory was that Schlafly's Pumpkin was long gone by now, but Liquor Outlet in Boonton had (if I'm remembering right) 4-5 cases stacked right up front just now. FYI.
A second shipment of Schlafly's pumpkin is coming in this week at a few stores. I know market place in East Brunswick is getting more.
