    Just wanted to introduce myself, as I am new to the Forum. I live in Kalamazoo, MI which is a great place to live for a craft beer lover. I'm within an hour from Bell's, Founder's, Arcadia, Greenbush, and many many more. Anywho, My name is Tyson and I just wanted to say hi.

    Hey there, we're new Michiganers. This is our third day in Royal Oak, and we've been trying to take it all in. Hopefully we'll see you on the circuit at some point, and welcome!!

    Awesome, welcome man. Hope you enjoy the community. Try not to take our shenanigans too seriously.

    Common etiquette dictates you send an established member beer. Like me, for example. Preferably rare and barrel aged. It's a tithe for joining the site... I'm being super serial.

    Cheers!

    Nice to see fellow Michiganders- as one who grew up in the Detroit area, Michigan is always close to the heart. Welcome to BA and don't take anything we post too seriously.

    A word to the wise, don't associate with Raymo. Aside from his routine time outs for BA shenanigans, he also gets us Kalamazoo BA's hopes up only to gallivant with his more amusing friends in exotic locales such as Chicago, Tampa or Hastings. He's a real badass heartbreaker, kind of like our own Arthur Fonzearelli.

    I'm a newb from Kalamazoo as well. I pretty much just joined so that I can trade away the Bolt Cutter and Black Note I have for something more in line with my tastes, but I'm sure that now that I'm on here I'll get sucked into posting all the time.

    2011 Expedition Stout, 2012 Java Stout, and some sort of expensive ales I haven't heard of vintage 2006 I believe. (Oh OP, hi there fellow Kzoo'er, I am from the great city of Kalamazoo as well!)

    Welcome to the forum!

    First and most importantly--do you feel Founders is expanding too fast?

    Nice. Don't forget to let us know what unconfirmed info you have about Dark Lord Day and which breweries are overrated or have sold out while you're at it.

    The first rule of the BNSS is that you don't talk about BNSS or the "things" available at the General Store. Mentioning that there is "beer" in the cooler is clearly a violation of the rules.

    Excellent. Saves me the 4 seconds it would take to call and ask.

    Are we going to tell them about the body of the FIB, who tried to bring mules to the last release, that is stashed in the corner?

    What the hell are you talking about? The BNSS is completely made up and so are these "rules", I think it was an invention of BrohammedAli. Why people keep talking about this as if it were real is beyond me.

    And a second point.... If, by chance, the BNSS was a real thing, speaking of the rules would be speaking of the BNSS. I think that would be grounds for removal from the BNSS, if it existed. Come on Adam, you know better.
