    Lol, they all suck dude. Blueberry on the other hand, is fucking delicious. Quality>Quantity.

    Can someone post the Harlem Shake vid from the line? There was a Harlem Shake vid...right...?

    They do? Really? The BA Moloko, Behemoth, and Topless Wytch variations are delicious. I also enjoyed the BA Alpha Klaus variations. I heard Murda'd Out Stout was delicious as well although I haven't had it.

    Sorry to disappoint you.

    Any update on remaining bottles? If I get there around 2 will I have any chance at either Eisbock?

    I think the bigger point is what Steebo said earlier: The eisbocks are unique brews. I wouldn't drop 50 bucks on a BA FFF bottle because, no matter how delicious they are, are they really going to beat similar brews that top out at half the price? Other than the BA Dark Lords, I doubt it.

    KRE, however, is without question the best fruit beer I've ever had. It's like raspberry chocolate cake in a glass, and I haven't had anything else remotely close to it.

    I don't like the price; it's ridiculous. But there flat out aren't other beers like these. They simply don't exist, Kuhnhenn knows it, and we are going to pay the price because it it. Literally.

    If I had to guess I'd say that they will be sold out but u never know. There still a long line that's been there since 11 that wrapped around the bar

    I'm not disagreeing. However, for me, the "uniqueness" of the brew doesn't justify $30 for 12.7 oz. It's that simple. If I lived near Kuhnhenn, I'd stop by, get a draft of both RE and BE, and pass on the bottles and grab some bottles of the Mich. Mud, etc. That's just me though.

    Just left with one of all 4 releases. Line wraps around the taproom to men's bathroom which is where I started. Waited about 45 minutes.
     
  12. how are things looking?
     
  13. any idea how much longer it'll last on bottles?

  19. Ha what a day....Blueberry mud, shit is just unreal. Glad to have had both on tap, and scored a bottle of both. Still bottles left, but maybe a case or 2 total of the KRE and KBE. No line though.

    I got to try their Blueberry Eisbock last week when they were taste testing different batches with the brewers and it tasted like cough syrup.. it wasnt my type of beer.. it was generous of them to pour their patrons this brew though..

    No disappointment here, had all except the witch and didn't think they were worth $35.

    I thought this was a Kuhnhenns thread? :D

    The draft was the same price ($15 for 6 oz) so either way you're paying the same price

    "Worth" is really up to the individual. Which brings me back to my original post. For me, a 12.7 oz. bottle of basically anything isn't worth $30, especially when you can enjoy a draft of each beer for a much more reasonable price. Seeing that Kuhnhenn just posted on Facebook that there were only 11 bottles of BE left; there are plenty of people that don't feel the same way I do. That's cool. I'm glad they were able to get the bottles they wanted.

    $15 for a 6 oz. draft? Now that's even crazier. That's all I've got...

    Having never had one, I would prolly drop the $$ to try it if I was in the area. Just wouldn't make the trip without knowing. Sounds intriguing though.

    I spent $15 for a 1oz pour of Utopias at a bar in NY. Wanted to try it!

    Had the blueberry and raspberry on tap. Opted not to get the bottles, though there were some left around 2:30pm. Raspberry was a little better IMO, but the blueberry was still delicious. There simply aren't any other beers like these in the world.

    Well had both on tap, nothing like I've ever had, both pretty tasty. However, not the "best beers" I've ever had, maybe the most unique. Wouldn't spend the money again for them, and grabbed a bottle of blueberry because I probably won't ever have another like it and wanted to share. Couldn't drink a lot of either, though, but glad I tried both. Mud was eh, good, but nothing exceptional.

    Yeah, but that doesn't mean it's gonna be good. Just saying. Are these Kuhnhenn bottles pricey...yes. But are they also tasty...hell yes!

    But then you'd spend that same $30 for 12 oz????

    Just curious, how many bottles of Mud and the Gold left? Don't care for the Eisbocks that much.

    Michigan DOT needs to understand the concept of salting the roads. With that said, the blueberry bottle is the only thing out and Mud is delicious

    No, no they don't. Murda'd, Conquistador de Muerte, BA Behemoth, and BA Behemoth with Cherries are legit.

    Straight up: 12oz bottles shouldn't be priced higher per oz. than Rare and Brandy/Bourbon Vanilla Dark Lord. These beers aren't on that level.

    So you went up there and tried them both? I hope so, otherwise I'm not sure how you can make that assessment.
