Few bottles of BCBS at Yes organic market eastern market. $11.99 per. No limit.
6 years later I got my CBS bottle....meh
CBS was still available at Georgetown Wine and Spirits last night.
Said he mat do a tasting today a noon if any are left.
Long shot, but anyone see Regal lately? Closest I can get to another bottle of Northwoods, and that shit was fantastic!
For anyone still looking, Harry's said they would start selling CBS at 2:00 today.
Nothing ever lives up to the hype
Any Bourbon GBS still available in Northern Virginia?
Any bourbon county barleywine still floating around NoVA?
Wegmanns Woodbridge as of yesterday
Harris Teeter in Stone Ridge/Aldie (Village Center Plaza) had three cases on the floor earlier this morning. $12.99/btl with VIC card.
My take on CBS -- waste of $30. It was thin, all coffee, no bourbon or maple syrup. Doesn't live up to even a small percentage of expectations. Sigh.
No beer is worth $30
Was there a little earlier today and didn't see GBS of any sort, even regular.
They do have quite a bit of reg BCBS left, and also had two BA Ten Fidys.
So TRUE. finally a,voice of reason. I dont like to hate but I feel I pissed off all my beer friends who thought it was da shit when it was just barely above shit. easily most overrated beer in quite some time. I think it was a product of nostalgia. doesnt taste like anything. founders did an awful job this year with their kbs and now,cbs. I think they mass produced way too much and in tje process lost their touch. kbs and cbs were bettr. I feel so terrible because I love Founders but this was really bad. its a boring beer with a slight sweetness at the end. didnt taste like much or had mucj complexity
Apologies for the lack of clarity - I asked for it and recieved a bottle. I asked if they had more but was told 1 pp. Recommend calling them and possibly the one in Fairfax.
Founders rocks. You’re crazy. Got at Wegmans fairfax today by the way. 1 less bottle is avail as some douche dropped a bottle on his way out. I almost pushed him out of the way. The aroma was so good. Didn’t have 2017 yet but had at the brewery about 2 years ago and it was amazing.
I thought KBS was great this year, as always, but CBS wasn't significantly better/different.
I loved KBS this year. Incredibly balanced right out of the gate, and probably my favorite vintage in recent memory. I had another bottle a few nights ago, and the coffee had definitely started to fade. I'll probably try to polish off the rest of my stash before the new year.
I'm drinking CBS right now, and I would say it's very different. Sure, it's got abundant coffee, chocolate, and vanilla in the mix, just like KBS, but the maple syrup sweetness is dominant at all temperatures I've experienced. It's damn tasty, but, as a coffee junkie, I think KBS is more my cup o' tea.
Interesting, I thought they were incredibly different and liked KBS a lot more. CBS was just so sweet this time around, something I really don’t remember about this beer from past experiences. I’ve got another bottle, so if someon who didn’t get get one is interested, hit me up and maybe we can work something out.
Coffee BCBS on tap at WFH, got a keg on late
Just as Vinnie Cilurzo coined “lupulin threshold shift” there should be something similar in the vein of barrel aged stouts. People seem so attuned to the adjunct stouts that they’re not enjoying CBS. While this is technically an adjunct stout it’s one with barrel character first and foremost and I think they did an awesome job.
Looking forward to having it on tap this week.
For anyone looking to really geek out this podcast on Founders barrel program is pretty cool and impressive when you hear what they’re doing.
Last night, I tried one of the two bottles I kept around from this year’s vintage and was sorely disappointed. No coffee, some raw barrell, and no real bourbon notes. I’m going to try to nab some CBS but this experience has burned me pretty bad. I really like KBS but had never kept it for months to see what happens. Pretty disappointing considering how long some people cellar it.
I could be wrong, but doesn't cellaring a beer with coffee notes generally kill the coffee flavor?
I wasn’t aware. Either way, pretty disappointed with my experiment.
Yes! in Petworth has all the latest Burial drops (Surf Wax, Ceremonial, Scythe and one other that I forget). They generally have a great selection there, btw— for both bottles/cans and growlers.
As of 4pm today Rodman’s still has bcbs and barlywine. Also no more hardywood gbs on shelf
CBS reached Total Wine Towson. $29.99 1pp. Behind the front desk.
WF Springfield still unsure if they will receive CBS but they’ll know once their shipment gets in around 1 pm. Line it up folks
Abraxas at TW Alexandria and Springfield ($25).
Beers and Cheers in Germantown got CBS in today.
They want $50 a bottle.
I liked that bottleshop, but I’m never stepping foot in that place again after this.
That's outrageous. I'll keep that in mind when I'm out in Mo Co. I'll be sure to steer clear.
Bluejacket just announced a reserve society.
And cans! Their beers are all over the place, but cans of Lost Weekend and Forbidden Planet would be great.
Confirmed. McLean as well.
Interesting... Can't decide if this is a good move or not. I would say their beers have been getting better over the years.
Yeah, I guess it just doesn't seem like they sell out of anything very quickly. Their barrel aged stuff has been good though, and price isn't terrible for 12 bottles. Interested to see what they do in the next year
Went to the anni and got burned pretty badly by how bad the BA stuff was. I’d rather spend the money on Aslin, Veil, Tired Hands, New England trips, etc
Both Transistor and BA Double Mexican Radio were very good, but have had mixed feelings on much of their other beer. Hadn't heard much positive or negaitve about the anniversary event
I should say that I certainly like a number of their beers but too many of the “limited” anni specifici beers were overly sweet and boozy messes. I really prefer their sours.
Ballston as well.
Every time I think this is the case, they turn around and disappoint me. For example, over the summer I had a glass of Turning Road that was, by far, the best IPA I've had from them to-date, just outstanding. I recommended it to several friends who also agreed. Two months later, I went back and they had a new batch of Turning Road on tap, so of course I ordered it, and it didn't taste like it was even the same beer! It was fine, but definitely more run-of-the-mill mediocre Bluejacket IPA than the beer I'd had two months earlier. This is pretty much a microcosm of my experience with Bluejacket since they've opened.
