    Well I assume KBS bottles will start landing in NYC on Monday so this will be a good place to post any information regarding it...

    Anyone have any info yet?
  2. Careful, the beer BRAJ's will be out in force and chastising anyone who shares any information.

    Any reports out of Westchester/Rockland?
  11. Not nearly as awful as people shitting on other peoples threads - this is a forum about all things beer - including where to find it.

    "Beer community dedicated to supporting and promoting beer through education and appreciation."

    Good luck to everyone on scoring KBS if you are ISO.

    i frequent several of the superstars, but in this case i spoke to the manager of the amityville location.

    im sure it will hit all of the local shops the same day.

    Appreciated, I'm in Nassau, so it would probably be easier for me to try the Nassau stores or even go into Brooklyn or Manhattan.

    If you are up for a path ride, Hoboken vine just posted. 1 per person. They only got 1 case in.
  17. Ardsley Decicco just tweeted that they have bottles in stock, limit of 2 per person and also requested no mules please.
  18. marshmeli

    marshmeli Savant (425) New York Feb 14, 2012

    dar482 Advocate (645) New York Mar 9, 2007

    WF Columbus Circle sold out too. WF Chelsea has a few left (I just got one) - $6/bottle, 1 per person. Have to ask for it in the back. Good luck.
  24. marshmeli

    marshmeli Savant (425) New York Feb 14, 2012

    Columbus sold out already, just called like 20 min ago and said they didnt get it in yet?
  25. When did Columbus Circle even get it? I was there an hour ago and the people at the tap room didn't even know what I was talking about.
  26. marshmeli

    marshmeli Savant (425) New York Feb 14, 2012

    Yeah i just called Columbus again and they said they didnt get it yet.
  27. Crookdrain

    Crookdrain Savant (385) New York Jan 13, 2010

    I was told they were out of it. Must have been someone who was confused. WF Chelsea def. has it though.
  28. I'm wondering if they're even going to get it. I got the dreaded "we can order it... usually we can get anything we ask for" response...
  29. marshmeli

    marshmeli Savant (425) New York Feb 14, 2012

    Def have bottles at Chelsea (not many)... took trip to CC, went to On Tap said it is not coming in today...
  30. Crookdrain

    Crookdrain Savant (385) New York Jan 13, 2010

    Bierkraft just tweeted that they have some. Probably for like $15/bottle, of course.
  31. Crookdrain

    Crookdrain Savant (385) New York Jan 13, 2010

    Also, there's a place in Bay Ridge by me that always gets some KBS, but they price gouge to $10/bottle (last year, god knows what they'll charge this year). Not sure if people are interested in supporting a store that does that, but if so, let me know and I'll give you the address.
  32. Franch

    Franch Advocate (540) New York Mar 22, 2011

    is this the site of 99.99 CBS?
  33. man, you're doing a lot of work hunting today, can you set up a twitter account specifically for the KBS release so i don't have to keep checking BA today and can have the tweets on my phone?

    Thanks braj

    Crookdrain Savant (385) New York Jan 13, 2010

    No, I haven't heard of that. I know of Eagle Provisions, site of the $99 Cantillon. This is a 24 hour bottle shop on 3rd avenue.
  35. afksports

    afksports Savant (400) New York Aug 22, 2010

    Oh man I'm so happy I don't do this anymore. (just thought I'd share that there is a way out!)
  36. dar482

    dar482 Advocate (645) New York Mar 9, 2007

    Good Beer says they'll have it tomorrow at 12PM. 1 bottle limit.

    it was at 86 beer and deli.
  39. Crookdrain

    Crookdrain Savant (385) New York Jan 13, 2010

    Seriously? That's right near me. I know they're overpriced on some bottles ($30 for Bolt Cutter), but that's unbelievable. Did they ever sell it??
  40. but...how will you get any KBS?
