    My first time trying out this store I was recommended called Party Source (Syracuse, NY). They had some pretty awesome selections, but I felt like their inventory was running low. I'm from San Diego so I always like to find brews from San Diego all the way across the country. The Yuengling was bought elsewhere as my usual cheap beer that I just like to have around if I'm not feeling fancy enough.

    Here I have:
    6x Ballast Point Sculpin IPA (Delicious IPA. Definitely better than the Big Eye but probably not as good as Stone)
    4x Big Eddy Russian Imperial Stout (Pleasantly surprised by this. Really really heavy on flavor and mouth. Definitely a special occasion type of brew.)
    1x AleSmith Horny Devil (Haven't had it yet.)
    1x Stone Smoked Porter (Had it on tap a while ago. All around a great porter with excellent coffee and roast taste.)
    12x Yuengling Lager (It's cheap. It's not Bud Light.)

    Beers of the World, the Saranac rep was offering free tastings of all 6 varieties. The variety 12 pack was on sale for $ 8.77, so I scooped one up.

    Why are people liking this? This is the reason why a bunch of people don't have the opportunity to try KbS.. Because people like this guy buy up a shit ton and leave as little as he can for others. Bad beer karma.

    Not beer karma at all, it's beer karma when all my regular trading partners have 8 kbs land on there doorstep each. Sorry you didn't get any I used no mules what so ever for this I ran around town for 3 days too 4 different store in witch some store got 8 cases. Not like I'm going to consume all of this, maybe keep 12-15 bottles for myself. My advise too you, find some awesome trade partner and hook him up, I got a "surprise" package from someone in Chicago who isn't even on BA including 8 kbs and a CW 15 cause I gave him a Black Tuesday on hunahpus day.

    Be careful finding Sculpin outside SD, it's expensive and tends to be a little older than one would like it.

    After a big day of muling shit for people, it sucks to miss your last train and have to hitch a ride to the nearest city with a random stranger and then be stuck in the cold until 11:40 PM to catch your last bus home. But MAN, it feels great to come home to these:

    For a minute I thought the Double Stout said "19.19". That would be ridiculous. 9.19 is actually really good though. I've had it before and it's delicious. Haven't had their WC IPA but their Imperial is unbelievable.
