    Any bottle shops planning a launch party like they did with Ballast Point and Firestone? Any word on the lineup?

    What I've heard / read is...

    April 8th on Tap, Bottles in stores by May.

    All the regular lineup beers in April/Mayexcept for Porter for some ungodly reason - We'll get that later.
    Seasonals by June (All Day IPA then, Breakfast Stout in October)
    We'll have Limited Stuff starting in July on forward, Rübæus will be our first Limited Brew.
    After July, we'll be on track with everything else.

    I really really really hope some KBS makes it here during the launch ala Firestone bringing Parabola/Sucaba.

    It's gonna hit like Deschutes did - Not as hard as Goose Island but, it'll be in better HEBs and Krogers.

    Seriously, It was so easy drinking you would be trashed before you knew it. I pass out drunk during brewing the next batch afterwards from drinking it. It's a dangerous brew
    I will make it again, just the hopshortage on amarillo making it absurdly expensive to brew as well

    Seemed like the perfect time to give us some since they come to the state and release KBS the same month. I guess I will have to wait until next year.

    Just what I heard. Something about a May 1st launch. I'm guessing that's the day founders is releasing its lineup?

    It was released this past weekend from what I believe. My guess is that we are not getting any, although I don't mind being surprised, but its probably because they had request for KBS filled prior to signing with BEK.
