Special #4, Carmella, Fog, & Regular at my local shop. Unsure of the pricing. But like last year, I did not seek these out early on Black Friday (even though they were available Tuesday) becuase they will sit on the shelf. In fact, I didn't get any beer today. What is wrong with me?!?!

Somethings not right.

Do you even know how to covid properly?

Being stuck at home with the family and on and off work, has depleted my cellar drastically the last 8 months.

My stash has taken a severe hit, too! I've been thankful enough that I've been able to go into the office since day one. But, I've definitely been drinking my good beers these past 8 months.

Same here regarding the cellar. I basically polished off anything I was saving for a special day or whatever. Down to a few bcbs vars, so BA other half stuff and a few old kbs.

Regarding pricing I haven't picked them up yet but the vars'll be on the higher side most likely.

I hit a local spot before picking up some take out......reg for $14 and caramella for $19. Grabbed the lagunitas willetized as well, was real good last 2 years that I recall and $15 for the 4 pack.

Drinking the bcbs 2020 reg now, it's solid and damn tasty.

We tried the Fog and it was not bad.

I thought I was going to hate it due to not liking tea but the tea and honey added a nice flavor.

Drank the Special #4 Friday night. Didn't care for it and definitely not worth the $25. Drank a reg today and it was solid, like always.

Same.... I really enjoyed it. I was fully expecting not to like it given I am not a tea guy but I dug it.

Carmella was really nicey.

Won an anniversary var in a lottery, $35. Thoughts?

I'll probably buy it anyway.

Unfortunately, FOBAB was cancelled, so I haven't had them all. Here are my .02 on 2020 BCBS:

-Reg: A bit sub-par to previous years (this is a VERY critical critique... still a very good beer)
-Carmella: I like it... worth picking up!
-Special #4: Mainly a coffee pull. The coffee was a good choice and goes well with the beer. This will probably be better in a year, as the coffee mellows and the maple progresses.
-Weller reg: Very good anniversary variant... I think I like Elijah a hair more, but this is a close 2nd.
-Birthday reg: Excellent! I'd say that this is a hair below RARE v2. If you see this, buy it!

...I didn't buy/try the tea variant.
Main ISOs: Stout "Pulp Fiction" & anything Phlegm
