    As I am typing this I received an email from a local store stating they will be getting in a case of Doom. They stated they will probably be selling for around $20 a bottle which I think is ridiculous! Has there been any sightings? I would like to get my hands on this but definitely not at $20.

    thought it was supposed to be closer to $12-$14 or so. If it's any more than that, I'll likely pass as well.

    Suggested retail is $12.99. I would assume it will be $14.99 in Indiana.

    Don't buy it dude. Worth more to trade than that.

    That what I figured. I am not sure how trading is done on the forums but I would like to get my hands on atleast a bottle but not for $20 lol! I did see that suggested retail bit.....guess people like to mark beer up a TON by me.
  8. My local stop just lost their "beer guy" so who knows how they will price this. My limit might be around 14 or maybe 15.

    Should call out your beer shop and tell them that suggested retail is 12.99

    I have a feeling that my shops are going to over price this

    Unless you plan on an ip trade just buy it. Shit happens, five over retail wont stop you from making your car payment and its a solid brew.

    Chicago should see it this week. Dunno about price, havent seen an invoice yet.
  16. I tried it at a bottle shop near me and after hanging out there and spending some pretty good money, they threw it in for me as a bonus. I'm told retail was $19 for them... I'm not sure I would have bought it for that much but hey, I'll take what I was given.

    Rumor is it shouldn't be more than $15 a bottle.

    Picked this up Saturday in Southern Illinois of all places. Have yet to open one of my two bottles yet.

    I wish I could find it near me. Its crazy they said they were going to step up and start putting out a larger amount of their Backstage stuff and I cant seem to tell if they did because it is so scarce in Northern IL where I am at.

    The nerd in me wishes they would sell it at $13.37 a bottle.

    Saw it listed on beermenus in Chicagoland for $15.99. Haven't seen in person yet anywhere to confirm.
  29. Nice. Gotta love when stores sell things earlier than they are supposed to.

    Kenosha
  31. I live in Grand Rapids so I got 4 bottles. Cracked one open this weekend and it's one of the best beers I've ever had. I opened a Hopslam right as I was getting finished just to make sure I wasn't going crazy and sure enough, its better than Hopslam.

    That's weird that it would be more in Michigan.

    Mind telling me where? I just moved there and it'd be nice to know where the cool shops are.
  36. Yeah I have no idea. I grabbed the invoice again just to double check. Definitely 115 + dep.
  37. Come on into Liquor Cabinet in St. Joseph and I'll take care of you personally.

    Edit: If you want some Doom better come in tonight. Almost gone!

    + dep?
  39. Deposit. In michigan all carbonated beverages have a .10 cent deposit per unit, so 115+1.20 deposit, which then gets passed on to the consumer who can return the empty bottle for their .10 back.

    Gotta love breweries with "street dates". I bet the owners of Founders wear bedazzled tank tops that look like Macy Grey's dress from the 2001 VMA's and say "My Beer Drops 4/22".
