Can we post this thread again next month when Bourbon County Barleywine is supposed to hit?

I've got a growler in my fridge right now as a result of a friend's visit to their brewery a few weeks ago. If it's anywhere near as good as I thought their habanero IPA (Three Hot Frogs) was, I'm sure I'll enjoy it, whether it's as good as King Henry or not.
I had it on tap at the brewery a couple months ago and thought it was pretty good. I haven't had the King or many other barleywines, though. Also, I was told it was aged in Wild Turkey barrels.
If you're still looking, I saw 2 bottles on display at Blacklick Wine & Spirits about an hour ago. Along with a decent amount of Ommegang Iron Throne.
I am against any beer that diminishes their capacity to brew more Ghost Scorpion Lager.
In any event, I plan to do exactly as suggested and try this blind with a few others I haven't tried yet (including Cockeyed Cooper).
Having tried Cockeyed Cooper and not King H.. I can say C.C. is an amazing brew. Worth seeking out for sure
I heard there was still some of this Bar-Bar at Ale Wine & Spirits in Powell as of yesterday; they're closed today. I haven't been super impressed with the Elevator beers I've had but lately I've had a couple that seem to be above average. I might have to get a bottle or two on Monday if they have some left.
I dont even need to look to know this thread is full of 2012 join dates
Or lots of people from Columbus.
I don't even need to look to know this is a post from BrohammadAli/PlayaPlaya/BreakingBad
On a serious note, I had a Bar Bar yesterday, I think it was very nicely done, but thought it could use more barrel character like BA Bigfoot
Na, the iPhone killer was the very first Android ever made.
Besides it says you joined in 2013.
Had Bar-Bar last night. I found it very underwhelming. No where near a top teir BA Barleywine. BTW, AWS in Powell ran out of Bar-Bar on Thursday night.
Whole foods in dublin had some over the weekend not sure if they still do or not
i'll need confirmation on whether or not it is indeed possible to overgold
What would the interest and activity in here look like if the thread title was actually accurate to the question the OP was really after?
I'm all for giving any beer from any brewery a fair shake though so for those in search I'd wager it isn't hard to find. Most bottle shops carry Elevator and it seems to last fairly long usually (I saw Ghost Scorpion bottles just last week). I never had King Henry so I suppose I'll never know the answer myself.
But since there's also a debate going on over the great BA Barleywines I'll throw out some love for MoaS. That has to be my favorite so far (even over Kuhnhenn BBBW imo). I only got a small amount but BA Bigfoot was also amazing. If anyone could somehow trade me a combo of MoaS/BA Bigfoot/King Henry I'd be up for it... just sayin'.
I'm going to agree that King Henry shouldn't be hard too "kill" at this point. It was amazing fresh, but it diminished rather quickly. That being said, it really should be no beer to end all beers for a BBA Barleywine style.
Elevator makes its way into Acme stores in the Akron area. Anyone know if bottles of Bar Bar made it to any of them? Montrose didn't have any as of Friday.
from the Elevator facebook:
So... roughly 2 bourbon barrels total here? King Henry ain't got nothing on that type of rarity. Maybe it won't be that easy to come by after all.
For anyone still looking......I saw what looked like at least 4 bottles at the World of Beer - Easton.
I didn't pick any up as it was in the cooler and I was on my lunch break.
I still haven't tried mine, should be doing so soon.
I got mine at Beverage Source in Newark, 12.99 a bottle, he had 2 cases, IIRC.
I'll be passing through Columbus this weekend. Is there anywhere right off 71 or 70 that still has this available?
I doubt it. I haven't seen it around and it seemed to have gone quick. I think it's a very good beer - the mouthfeel was insane!
Bummer. Oh well. Thanks for the info man.
