Do you run a bottle shop, or is that your personal cellar? I only asked because I see you have 41 bottles of matilda, haha.

This is my personal cellar. A relative of mine manages a distribution facility, which distributes Miller products, along with a bunch others. I have my choosing of anything he has, which is usually Goose Island products. I usually get them at distributor cost. Sometimes he has broken packages he has at no charge (which is usually Matilda and Sofie). This most recent trip to his place though cost me a nice little fortune. 16 12-oz bottles of BCS coffee, 16 12-oz bottles of BCS barleywine, 8 22-oz bottles of BCS backyard rye, 2 sixth barrels of 25th Anniversary Goose Island, 6 765ml bottles of Gillian, some misc Widmer Brothers, some Stella Cidre for the wife, and a few other odds and ends.

Sure! Haha. I'd be interested in trades, but I'm not all that interested in shipping beer. If anyone is in the northern suburbs of Chicago though and would ever want to meet somewhere to do a swap. . . . . . .

Any sours in particular to keep an eye out for? And are you interested in cash either?

If im not mistaken...wont coconut rye be the most limited? Backyard rye hits all distribution that standard bcbs does. The coconut is chicago distribution only...

I think you're right. The distribution facility got a lot more coconut than backyard rye but I realize now its because we're in Chicago. I'm getting a couple bottles of coconut but that's it.
