    Any tips on places to get breakfast in the KZoo area in 9 hours would be greatly appreciated!

    There's a whole slew of crap down Stadium Dr riding into Kzoo. You'll find something.
  3. Checkers?!?!? Us FIBs haven't seen them in years

    Up so early. Checkers, I remember that place. Fast food joint. I was thinking a diner or something. Too bad I gotta work today or I would make it a brewery tour.

    Again, this is discussion not hype. Discussion about the beers availability, among other things, is being spewed here. There has been little, if any, "hyping" of the beer.

    If you want good breakfast and close to Bell's my preference is Food Dance. It's a bit pricey, but they make some good food.

    As in ratcheting up the competition? It's been available for several days, I think people are more likely to think I'm nuts rather than an example to be followed. 2 bottles for 300+ miles is not a great ROI.

    I hope you packed some Mules in your car for that length of drive for 2 bottles.

    Does anybody know the batch number on this one? The last batch was 10136, I believe.
  12. The bottles I have say 11620.

    Was at the General Store yesterday to get some homebrew supplies, and picked up some Black Note. The guy at the register got a call, and he ran through all of the beers in the cooler for the calller, including Black Note.

    Great suggestion! Tasty breakfast, right down the street from Bell's, and some decent taps (Eccentric Cafe doesn't open til 11.) The slight priciness has got nothing on a lot of the bars & restaurants in Chicago.

    Remember that Arcadia is not far from Kzoo and currently has BA IS and BA Barleywine for sale. #goandpickitupformebro

    Of course my friend left Kzoo this morning and totally forgot to go to Bell's at all. :( Please do another bottling next year so I can hopefully grab one (just one, I'm not greedy).

    If any of you wonderful kzoo BA's that are coming to mytys' tonight want to pick me up a bottle I would be very appreciative (not in a sexual way)

    This thread reminds me of people that get all incredulous and cant understand why when i tell them Three Floyds is limited to one item per person, and then say "Well i have some friends/family with me, can each buy it too?!?!"

    Probably better I didn't know about that. I was in & out of Kalamazoo in the time it took to eat breakfast, have a pint of Bell's Porter, and fulfill my mission. After a treacherous drive back, I'm sitting at my desk starting my 8 hours (IT job)
