Got some in at my local craft shop here in SW MO, but in limited quantities. No grocery stores.

Don't worry BCBS will be making more steady rounds.

Just to throw this out there, as long as John Lafler is handling the brewing and barrel house, I don't see any issues with BCS in the future. Also, I'm not 100% certain, but I believe Bourbon County existed first (1992?)...

Yes, that would make sense. However, some people are stubborn, so they will continue to use BCBS even though it really doesn't make sense and just leads to confusion.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but we don't discuss Brooklyn Black Chocolate Stout much on the forums at least not enough for it to have an abbreviation. Also correct me if I'm wrong but writing Bourbon County Stout or Black Chocolate Stout isn't much of a pain in the ass so just spell it out.

Exactly, i just want to try it. Even if it magically appeared in my area, i would take no more then 2. Give someone else a shot to try it...

MN hardly got any. Stores are selling out in an hour or less.

This was my view. First time I've ever had the chance. Bought two bottles and drank one on thanksgiving and put one away.Can't say it's going to be something I would get excited about every season.

Why not add another letter or two to add clarification of what beer you are talking about...like GIBCS, FKBS, 3FBBADL???
