    Any bottle shops planning a launch party like they did with Ballast Point and Firestone? Any word on the lineup?
  14. HoustonZ33

    HoustonZ33 Savant (325) Texas Sep 10, 2012

    What I've heard / read is...

    April 8th on Tap, Bottles in stores by May.

    All the regular lineup beers in April/Mayexcept for Porter for some ungodly reason - We'll get that later.
    Seasonals by June (All Day IPA then, Breakfast Stout in October)
    We'll have Limited Stuff starting in July on forward, Rübæus will be our first Limited Brew.
    After July, we'll be on track with everything else.

    I really really really hope some KBS makes it here during the launch ala Firestone bringing Parabola/Sucaba.

  16. Is this going to be statewide or Just Dallas and Austin like Firestone?

    It's BEK, so should be most major markets.

    It's gonna hit like Deschutes did - Not as hard as Goose Island but, it'll be in better HEBs and Krogers.

    backwoods bastard in the fall. yes please. red rye also on tap. all the time. I did a homebrew clone of this and it was fantastic. I did not brew it again, cause I would have been drunk all the time

    Seriously, It was so easy drinking you would be trashed before you knew it. I pass out drunk during brewing the next batch afterwards from drinking it. It's a dangerous brew
    I will make it again, just the hopshortage on amarillo making it absurdly expensive to brew as well

  27. icetrauma

    icetrauma Savant (485) Texas Sep 7, 2004

    They have not answered that question. I've tweeted multiple times without a response regarding KBS.
  28. jamescain

    jamescain Advocate (650) Texas Jul 14, 2009

    They answered that on their website no KBS this time

    Seemed like the perfect time to give us some since they come to the state and release KBS the same month. I guess I will have to wait until next year.
  31. icetrauma

    icetrauma Savant (485) Texas Sep 7, 2004

    Slipping as in? The 1st truck load of kegs is already en route to Texas.

    Just what I heard. Something about a May 1st launch. I'm guessing that's the day founders is releasing its lineup?

  38. jamescain

    jamescain Advocate (650) Texas Jul 14, 2009

    It was released this past weekend from what I believe. My guess is that we are not getting any, although I don't mind being surprised, but its probably because they had request for KBS filled prior to signing with BEK.
  39. Phoenix2443

    Phoenix2443 Savant (335) Texas Jan 20, 2010

    Has it seen label approval?
