    I wish I knew how to post a picture on here but it never shows up right.

    On the epic bbb bottles, they print the ABV of the batch along with a code number on the bottles. This batch came out a little high in ABV (12.2%). State law is 12% in Ohio. Now I'm not sure if they're going to be sending out another batch but I do know that the distributors are sending them back to the brewery though.

    So if you want some baptist this year and you're in Ohio, get out there and yourself some before its too late!

    I picked up a bottle yesterday but didn't check the ABV on the label. Oh man, I hope Gov. Kasich doesn't send his goons out to raid my cellar.

    They're already there!

    I missed out on getting a bottle so it looks like I'm outta luck, unfortunately.

    Has anyone in Michigan seen BBB? I haven't seen a single bottle of this beer since last winter in SE MI.

    Mi gets limited epic distribution. Ohio is full. Bbb is probably not in mi.

    I'm betting I can find more. If so, I can send your way. How much are you looking for?

    What we saw was batch 11. If this is batch 13 I would assume some more would hit around GR at some point. I remember getting hammered with a fresh batch of BBB last year during ArtPrize.

    There is a store off of the road that leads into Grand Haven that usually has near a case on the shelf at all times. I think it's Nunica. Either way it's a little convenience store on the north side of the road going into Grand Haven off of 96.

    This sucks - I love BBB. Any chance a Columbus store still has it?

    Just did a bit of research. It's called The Corner Market and it's in Spring Lake, not Nunica.

    I wish I could find this in metro Detroit for a reasonable price. I know a place I can get it but it's not cheap ($20/bottle).

    We see a bunch of Epic in Kalamazoo, unfortunately that only amounted to Big Bad Baptist coming and going with in a day or so. I have no problem getting almost anything else from Epic.

    I have had plenty of Epic to this point. Each one, I have not felt the need to try again. The only reason I am interested in this one is b/c a lot of people seem to like it. It may also be the last beer I buy from Epic.

    That's the place. My sister lives near there, and I stop in whenever we visit. Ricky is the owner and has done a nice job with the place since he took it over a few years ago. He is currently expanding his beer area. For some reason he always seems to have things on the shelf that disappeared from Kalamazoo or GR weeks to months ago. It's a great stop on the way to Odd Side, Vandermill, or the Lake.
