    True, but looking over their shoulder at the computer helps. As of today Binnys south loop only had 1.75s on the shelf. I think Binnys would get w12 if there were some to be had.

    I think this is just part of temporary rolling blackouts that we need to expect over the next few years. Some states flush, some states waiting for the next drop.

    Some of this discussion reminds me of an old joke.

    "That restaurant? I don't go there anymore. The food is terrible. And such small portions!"

    Re: Weller 12 flying off the shelves?

    Pretty easy to find on the shelves in Seattle but the price is BS. Cheapest I've seen is $31 before tax, which ends up being ~$40 when it's all said and done. The high price is a result of the taxes as well as the distributor pricing due to the fact that the Weller labels were never readily available out here during the state control years (i.e. there's not much demand).

    It jumped from $23.99 to $26.99 here in the Indy area. I occasionally find it for $24.99. I think the demand is pretty steady.

    If you're a member of Caskers, they have Weller 12 today for $25, plus shipping. Usually their prices are steep for me, but this is a decent deal if you can't find W12 near you. Be sure to check the shipping restrictions before ordering though!

    i took advantage of this. It wasn't at the few stores I went to in Louisville when I was there, and it's not available in VA (though WSR and OWA are?). Can't wait to get my shipment.

    I jumped on this too.

    Free shipping over $150 and no tax. This works out very well for the states that Caskers will ship to. $24.99 is roughly $5 cheaper per bottle (after tax) than what I can get it for in the state next to me (not available in WI).

    I picked up 7 bottles as well. No tax and free shipping makes it a deal. I've never seen it on the shelf myself, and always tend to miss the Montgomery County allocation here in MD. Looking forward to giving the SB.com blend a try.

    No W12 in Wisconsin? For shame! I did like the 1.75s of WSR at Discount Liquors in Milwaukee.
