Wow! $14.49 is less than the wholesale price in Michigan.
Same. After reading this thread I figured nobody would procure it for a better price than Bestway, but you've got me beat. They treat us pretty good in NC.
I've heard the same from multiple parties. If I ever snag a bottle I'll be sure to let it age.
Same here but i bought 2
Paid $22 at Cambridge Wine and Liquor, in Cambridge MA
$20-$25 after tax in indianapolis
Anyone know where to get this in the Philly area?
If anyone within or around the Triad area wants one the Total Wine on Battleground had about 15 left for $14.99.
$20.99 at Party Source in Newport, KY (limit 1)
around $27 in philly
the difference in price on this is nuts!
Paid just under $20 at Whole Foods in Plymouth Meeting this Tuesday.
Nabbed one at Champanes for $19, and two more in South Lyon for $24 each. Inconsistant?
Where at in South Lyon?
Country Acres, 10 Mile & Rushton
i paid $0 cuz i got it at work. >dodges flying objects<
I love seeing that some places realize that losing abit of money on the really crazy brews creates customer relationships that will end up making way more money than upcharging on 12 bottles of beer.
Bought 3 bottles at 2 different shops in south east MI 2 for 24.99 and 1 for 23.99-WTH.
$22.99 + tax here in Chicagoland as of Wed.
$20-$22 Boston area
$16 in NC
$30 at two shops in Philly. Wild prices. Not worth it.
20-25 at a number of shops in Northern VT
Next batch is sitting in barrels as we speak...
What crown are you seeing? If different from your basic "Founders", I need it... just added the Goose Island Bourbon County to the collection... holy smokes... should have cellared this one but... I needed the cap
Saw it in Valpo at Trail Inn on Wednesday
BottleCrowns he is referring to the label. Just above the OL in BOLT.
I got mine at Mari's Six Pack and More in Reading Friday. At that point they only had 4 left so may be out by now.
Thank you sir! Picked it up there a couple days ago though.
So @hophead717 have you had this beer? I love Founders, and would absolutely love to try this, but I probably wouldn't pay $30 unless it was something really spectacular, which, judging by the comments on this thread, it doesn't seem it is. I'm content not to try this if it's going to cost that much.
This is one of the biggest problems with really popular, "hyped" limited release beers; they're marked up in price an insane amount. Why pay $30 for a bottle of this (which I'm sure is delightful, but $30 delightful? Let's be reasonable...) when I can very easily get bombers of Speedway Stout, Flying Mouflan, or Pumking for $12 at the local Wegmans? And any number of amazing barleywines at around the same price? Some people seem to fall victim to the 'exclusivity virus', which basically entails an otherwise reasonable person to go ape-shit and spend a fortune on a beer that may be rather average based solely upon on the fact that it is rare and comes from a revered brewery.
I had a bottle today. Totally not worth it. It was like the world's maltiest DIPA, though I'd say that the maple finish did a touch to redeem the beer...but just a bit. Maybe with aging it'll improve, but I'm looking to trade my second bottle.
Would not buy at anything more than $15, and only at that price because the maple makes it a unique beer.
$21 in Minneapolis. Sounds like I will cellar this one for a while.
went to PA missed this anyone in chicagoland have any tips
$28 in suburban Chicago. Grabbed 2. There were 4 just sitting on the shelves.
what town. trade?
Does anyone have the breakdown of what % of this beer is BBA, MBBA, and standard fermentation. Also, how long did the beer age in those barrels?
I managed to grab 3 bottles in Central WI. I paid $20.99 at the low end and $25.99 at the high end.
I dont believe any specific percentages were disclosed and they began aging in July.
paid $23 at Liquor World in Cambridge, MA
Does anyone have a clue of when or if this beer might be distiburted to PA?
