Thread quickly went from "Beer - trading & discussion" to "Goose Island Freakout" in no time at all. I've had a BCBS - really didn't think it was very special at all. Just like most limited release beers: overhyped.

In other news, I recently moved from Alabama to Virginia. I was pretty excited because I figured VA would have much better beer options as distribution in AL is kind of whack. It's really not all that special here either, unfortunately-- although there are some nice breweries. Really digging Champion at the moment. Any regional beers/limited releases I should look out for?

It's definitely overhyped. The marketing is stupid crazy for bcbs. That being said, it is a drymounting awesome beer and the barrel aging is pretty damn impressive. Had some 2015 on tap and it was phenomenal. Much smoother than some of the previous years. Didnt have the boozy heat that can make it unbearable fresh.

The beer definitely isn't overhyped. The lengths people go to to get the beer is though. I personally would rather have my case of Mad Elf and just walk into any store to grab it for cheaper. But hey, anyone can do whatever the heck they want. Who am I to judge? I'm the clown that drops all my money on paper, records and beer anyway :hanging:

No judgement here, either. I'm more jealous of the folks in this thread with easy access to regional offerings in MI, MA (New England as a whole, really), CA, OR, etc.

I justify high beer prices vs what I'd pay for a decent bottle of wine.

If there any NYCers still looking for BCBS Original or Barleywine, Whole Foods on the UES has plenty of both. $10.99 and $11.99 respectively. I've heard pretty much all of the Whole Foods in the city have an healthy stock of both.

For anyone who had this year's Barleywine, I've heard that it's particularly sweet? Was that your impression as well?

Is that anywhere near City Swiggers? I was just there this weekend visiting my friend who lives around the corner. Im sure he would be interested in grabbing a few to try after hearing me talk about it.

I dig those bottle caps, looks like their new high gravity caps but with some shading to them. I havent been looking for BCBS yet, probably missed that boat in Nashville already.
