    $10.50 for a four-pack here. $15 seems a little high, even with the higher Illinois tax rate.

    Shit, even Breakfast Stout is $11.99 out here.

    Thanks. Picked some up at the Woodman's in Men. Falls today. Consumer Beverage didn't have any yet.

    Anyone in Green Bay see it? The 2 cases Ridgeview Liquor got were sold out in under 24hours and I can't say I was expecting that. Was not able to make it there that quickly. I don't expect Festival Foods to have it, would Allouez Beer Depot or Woodman's get this potentially?

    IMO this batch needs to sit for a bit, whereas KBS was great from the start this year.

    Did anyone notice that their 4 pack had all plain black caps instead of founders normal bottles caps? Very odd but it still tastes awesome.

    Yeah I noticed it right away, too (and I think I saw it earlier or somewhere else). Not sure why but not a big deal. Maybe they ran out of their normal caps. Makes it easy to see in the cellar because I have nothing else with a plain black cap.

    I was in Woodman's in La Crosse, WI this morning and talking with the manager there and she said all special releases that come through general bev out of Madison such as founders will be released in Madison for 2 weeks before they come to La Crosse and we will only get some if there is any left. Pretty lame sauce.

    I called Star around 5:30pm yesterday asking if they had any. The girl working told me they didn't get their shipment of it yet.

    Odd, since I bought two 4-packs there on Tuesday. I think they got it in that morning and were sold out by 8:00pm that night, so maybe she just wasn't working that day and missed the shipment entirely.

    Seeing lots of it in South and West burbs. Lots easier to find than last year. I've got my stash that should last the winter.

    Places I've been to in Chicago are breaking them up and selling them per bottle. Any spot in Chicago selling them as 4 packs?

    It's all relative. The store where I bought two 4 packs last year was already sold out when I called an hour ago. But I was able to get the single 4 pack I was looking for this year from its sister store, so alles gut.

    Sorry, I meant this year. Last year I only saw single bottles.

    Still waiting for this to show up in Indy.

    God I miss being in MI sometimes...

    Weird. I never got an email saying they got it in. Usually they're pretty good about e-mailing new releases.

    Very weird then, I just happened to be driving by and stopped in.

    I just got a notice that Founders just released this today. I'd like to see comments from those who have tried this particular brew. Worthwhile?

    Nope. Reviews state that as well.
