The Thirsty Beagle: Oklahoma will get BCBS... later

Oklahoma will get BCBS... later

Every year about this time, we settle in for the holiday season with a fresh round of debate on Goose Island Bourbon County Brand Stout.

I'll never buy it because Goose Island sold out to Anheuser Busch.

I'll buy it as along as Goose Island is making it the same way, because it's still a good beer.

This year, you can still have that debate. Sort of.

Actually, it'll be next year.

Following up on rumors that had been swirling locally about the stout's availability in Oklahoma this year, I confirmed with Goose Island that BCBS will indeed be available in Oklahoma -- after Jan. 1.

That decision had not always been a sure thing, however.

Several liquor store owners reported hearing from their AB rep in the past few weeks that BCBS would not be arriving in-state this year. Only today did one liquor store owner tell me that the rep had a different story.

And just this afternoon, confirmation came for Goose Island of the post-Jan. 1 plan to ship to Oklahoma.

I do not have clarification on a reason for a delayed release as compared to past years, but at least you know that if you do want some BCBS, you'll be able to score some eventually.
