    Gonna be in Albemarle for a week for work and really trying to find KbS. Anyone know where a good place to look would be?

    I think that beautiful ship has sailed....sorry man. I would be AMAZED if you found any around...i think the days of it accidentally ending up on a gas station or grocery store shelf are long gone (if you believe that stuff actually ever happened)

    gas stations no, but I know one grocery store that got it this year. Alas though to the OP I would have to say that it's unlikely to find any at this point

    Didn't know about the Harry Teet. Earf Fair in SP definately got a case though.

    Also based on who you follow and who follows you I'm guessing I probably know you.....

    I got a couple from EF and a single from Harry Peter during their craft beer week event :)

    I am sure we have met before at one of these events or tastings. anytime founders is mentioned I try my best to make it out.

    Yup, they had it stashed in the back for a couple of months so they could break it out for their special party...3-4 month old hopslam stored warm for $20..I passed :)

    KBS is gone! I half-assed it this year & was still able to pick up 3 bottles of it though. I actually found a bottle just sitting on a shelf in a small shop in Gaston County - this was about a month after it came out so I was pretty shocked.

    That being said - if you're in the Charlotte area - you need to go by Duckworth's - 70 killer drafts. There's a Total Wine in pretty much the same parking lot & Brawley's bottle shop is almost across the street.
