I usually don’t do this but i‘m looking for 1 bottle of BCBS from 2021. I would buy these every year and this past Black Friday I stopped because I‘m getting older and figured I should cut back on drinking big beers. Well my sister was diagnosed with breast cancer and an American Legion is having a benefit run for her. They are selling trick trays for a fundraiser and I figured I would donate a monster vertical of BCBS and low and behold I’m missing 2021. I ran to my 2 distributors hoping to find one and they are out.

So if you have one that your willing to let go, I will make it well worth you while to send me one. I have a cellar full of beer. A bunch of club release sours (I have to pick a new one up tomorrow), stouts, and various other stuff. If you have any special requests from around me I can make that happen or if you’d prefer brewery swag from around me let me know.

I‘d need it by 8/18 at the latest. Let me know if you have one laying around. Thanks

I have a bottle down stairs in my cellar, not sure the year, I think it’s a ‘19 or ‘20. I’ll look in the morning. Ok f it’s a 2021, it’s yours.

If you looked hard enough you could probably still find bottles on a shelf somewhere. Around here when BCBS drops stores usually try to push out their leftover inventory of previous years. It just doesn't sell post-acquisition like it used to and stores have to buy so much of the regular to get the variants that sell through.

The irony is that there’s a beer store next to where I work that has a ton of the variants left, but very few of the base bottles. No idea how they ended up like this, but I’m now contemplating a horizontal tasting of my own!

Woooow that’s nice!! They’re normally gone by all my stores the first 2 weeks after release especially the variants.
