Yes, binny's is supposed to have it Wednesday or Thursday of this week. I already have a 6-pack reserved at the at the binny's on grand downtown. I asked for a case, but all he would do is a 6-pack. The Lincoln Park whole foods and galleria liquors at north and wells also carried it last year, but not sure when they are getting it this year.

It was released in Indiana last week and luckily my uncle who lives in Indianapolis got me 2 6-packs.

I also noticed it on tap at a lot more bars in Chicago last year than ever before so it should be the same with this year.

Actually, the Lincoln Park Whole Foods had it on tap last year too.

Nice...I should be getting some in the next two weeks. Sent my box to Chi today with Jacks abby and MA saisons pretty much filling most of the box.

I also got a box yesterday, Cherry Rye as an extra? I was pretty shocked and happy. Will be sending this guy a thank you box in a few weeks when Jacks Abbys Barrel Aged Beer comes out.

Binny's on clark told me to call back on thursday and won't take a reservation. frown.gif

I could try running over to west lakeview liquors and see if they have it but I have to go buy something tonight at the petco across the street from binny's...

I didn't have any problem buying it last year. I'm not sure why everyone is freaking out. They make a ton.

I know the Beer Manager at the Binny's downtown because I am in there so often so he was willing to set aside a little for me. If you have a car, it really isnt that much more trouble to stop at West Lakeview liquors. I think the hopslam would be worth the drive. I might drive there myself tonight.

Nobody is freaking out, but it does go a lot quicker at liquor stores in the city than it does in NW Indiana, especially at Binny's. My uncle in Indy was able to buy it whenever he wanted through the end of February last year.

Yeah, my store had it in March. The irony is that I'm a 30 minute drive from downtown and yet worlds apart.

It's hit or miss directly at the Bells General Store. Suppose to be released through distribution this week.

Hopslam production was up over last year I believe. It'll be in stores through March.
