Default Founders KBS time!

So... I managed to get some KBS today. Haven't drank it yet but had to try it considering all the hype it gets. Does it live up to the hype? I figure if nothing else I can get accidentally drunk since it's 11.2% ABV

I waited too long to get beer, only place open was 711 and I did not feel like going to Meijer so I settled on Blue Moon.

Will try the KBS next time.

Apparently it is a very limited run. I just happened to be in the right place at the right time. I paid $9.99 per 12 oz bottle and fully expected to be disappointed. I can honestly say it is by far the best beer I've ever had in my life.

No. Meijer will not have it. Most places have a waiting list to pick it up. If you find a single bottle you can consider yourself among the lucky few.

$10 for a single 12 oz bottle of beer.

Three bottles in costs more than a bottle of Bulleit. Four bottles puts you in Maker 46 territory.

Fuck that.

You dont buy it to sit down and drink them all. Last time I had a 4 pack of KBS I drank 1 to myself and then shared the other three with friends over the next 6-8 months. Its not about the price. Its not about the taste. (though its great) Its about the effort and prestige of having a few in your fridge.

Prestige of having beer in your fridge? You have a sad life.

I like beer, and I really like microbrew/craft beer. But I'm getting tired of these "OMG we only brew our awesome beer once a year so you better run out and buy your $10 bottle today" beers. If it's that great, brew it all the time and charge a reasonable price. Creating interest in your beer by only making a little each year and over charging for it is getting old.

No more sad than someone that is happy to have bought any other sought after item.

I like to have a few kbs in my beer fridge. I also have stone vertical epic 07 07 07, 09 09 09 and 10 10 10. Also one pliny the elder. A handful of founders devil dancers and some other random, not so easy to get your hands on, beers. Dont hate because I am passionate about beers.

We got our KBS last week Tuesday. As usual, there was a two bottle per customer limit. Each specialty liquor store in our area (all 3 of them) was allowed 1 case and as you can imagine... That case went fast!
Bells Black Note was available at the same time and sold out just as fast with the same sales limitations.
