Back when this was a beer forum we used to talk about not finding Girardin. Its on lots of local shelves atm. Next to the 3F and Tilquin. If only people still drank that stuff.
Back in the day, they'd send around 16 cases to Chicago once a year. I'd get half at Marcey, Cutler at Piece would order some, and then the other cases would get split out to whomever knew it existed. When i took over at Publican there was less available and i could only get 2-3 cases. Weird it's on shelves.

On a related note, go buy Drie Fonteinen & keep me in business. Thx in advance!

Just grabbed a 375 at binnys lakeview yesterday. Probably a case on the shelf.

No idea how to delete posts, so this will just get posted twice. Thanks Phone

Tonight, my last Lurie Children's hospital silent auction will be for a group of (up to) 6 to get the back room at the Beer Temple and get to pick 3 Drie Fonteinen bottles from a list of heavy hitters. It will post on my Instagram at 7:30pm and run for 24 hours. I will gladly chip in my fair share of a seat if any of you decide to do this.

Speaking of Beer Temple....quite the big news today and I am very excited about this news as a new resident of Lake Bluff with 6 month old twins that allow me to not make city beer runs frequently. :D:):p
