So GI was supposed to release bramble rye, vanilla bcs, and coffee bcs last week.

At some point they told their distributors they weren't going to be shipping that week, but it would release soon.

This week, from what I've gathered, the release is unknown, at least by anyone outside the company.

Has anyone heard anything about this?

Good luck finding gumballhead. I live here and can't even get any. Alpha King, Pride and Joy, Robert the Bruce, and Arctic Panzer Wolf shouldn't be too hard to get though.

I would love to find some out here, but I'm not expecting it.

I was shocked when I randomly found 4-packs of BCBS at a local wegmans. They sold out very quick.

Yeah. Even in Chicago, they're gettable, but they generally limit you to one per customer.

I was doing some thinking last night and my best guess as to why the beer has been delayed has to do with the installation of their new fermenters:

It's the biggest change I can think of that's happened in the brewery.

You're not talking about the regular BCBS are you, just the flavored ones? I got two bottles of the regular on Saturday along with some other treats.

Nice Revvy! Did you pick those up in MI? All places near me are out of regular BCS. And yes I should have clarified. When GI comes out with King Henry, Vanilla or Coffee BCS, and Bramble Rye, they generally limit you to one.

However, it may be a little different outside of the immediate GI area.

I just found:

Goose Island Beginning to Box next BCS series.

Yeah I got them in one of my regular bottle shops. I haven't checked the other ones I usually go to.
