2017 BCBS Coffee
Q: Is the beer good to go this year?
A: Yes, Goose Island will be releasing Bourbon County Stout on Black Friday
Q: What are the variants?
A: The 2017 BCBS variants are Original, Coffee, Barleywine, and Northwoods.
Q: So, there isn’t a national Rye variant?
A: Due to Goose Island’s increased QA methods, they decided to focus on original this year. The barrels they intended for Rye this year weren’t ready for extraction when they tasted them, so those are continuing to age.
Q: Will someone be on hand to manage the line and make sure there is no cutting?
A: We like to think all of our customers can be civil and responsible, but we will have someone on hand to manage the crowd overnight.
Q: Can we drink outside while we wait for the doors to open?
A: Drinking on public property isn’t legal in New York. Please be mindful of the law and our neighbors.
Q: Will anything else be open in the neighborhood?
A: We’re in discussions with a few businesses on the block to staff up to support your early morning coffee and snack needs. We will also have some snacks and such available as in previous years.
Q: Will there be bathroom access for people in line?
A: We’ll do what we can, but due to staffing needs, don’t plan on it.
