BCBS 2015

Postby beerguykw » Mon Sep 28, 2015 12:42 pm

Might as well get another thread started. I'm just looking for information from those individuals who have been lucky enough to get tickets. Can/do you get bottles of the BCBS series when you buy tickets? How many events do they have? etc. I'm going to try and attend something, just want to get some background info on best experiences, best chances of getting a few bottles to bring home.

Thanks

I tried to get tickets to Black Friday in Chicago, and got screwed by my browser. At least that's what I'm telling myself. Oh well, FoBaB this weekend will have to do :)

All we know for sure is it's in theory happening and there in theory be some form of tickets. The LCBO itself hasn't put anything out yet, to the best of my knowledge.

Premier posted that you can buy 2 bottles per person and that they are getting zero variants. I'm disappointed, i was hoping that with the move to larger bottles on the regular ans smaller on the hard to get variants that there would be a lot more available. Oh well, definitely passing on it this year since there are no variants and the regular is easy to trade for.

referring to the vanilla rye lcbo thing, eh? at first i read that related to premier and thought that seemed even nuttier for two beers.

anyway, looks like consumers will have it at most locations "starting" today, whatever that means. 3 pp limit.

In line as well, ticket number 79 (but I'm like 40th in line)... strange that you have to ask for a ticket

If you line up at the back they offer it to you.

The donuts are really good.
