Grabbed one in Boston today $22
If you are looking for BC in northern Illinois, Binny's Algonquin, as of 3:45 had 5, limit one at $21.99. Armanetti's in Huntley ( Umi is the Man there, great guy, tell him Fred told you he has it - he will hook you up ), same price I got 2. Check out Armanetti's Woodstock same price , it's on the shelf, limit 2. You are welcome , enjoy - share the BA love, bro's..............................................
Grabbed the 2nd to last one at my local shop today! Didn't think I was gonna get my hands on one!
Have you even had Boltcutter? I guess jealousy brings out the best in people
love how a 4.35 isn't very good anymore.
I know right... only like a B+ if we were talking grade school, I'd get the belt for that...
When the average beer on BA is a 3.9 and a drain pour still gets a 2.5...4.35 with 9 reviews is not all that robust.
I don't disagree (although it has 13 reviews), but I didn't say anything about the robustness. Scalzo said "isnt getting too good of reviews," and on BA, that's just not right.
Whether or not it holds up is anyone's guess, but if the rAvg doesn't go down, yes, I will be surprised.
Fair enough. I opened one last night and thought it was very, very, average.
four cases? i know plaves in wisconsin that have the higest allocation of founders and only got 6 bottles?
If I could trade all of my Bolt Cutters $4$ for the Sebago Barleywine, I would do it in a heartbeat....and I haven't even had Bolt Cutter yet. Sadly, I'll likely never fall into that particular opportunity until the next batch is released.
It's really that good.
However, I imagine that these are two very different beers (style classifications aside)....so no use in comparing, really.
I thought it was excellent. Is the average BA rating a 3.9?
At .03c/mL.... It should be better than "average." However... why are people drinking these now? I advised everyone who bought one to wait until the end of time.
Missed out on this one, unfortunately. Local GE had one case and it went in like an hour.
In the Chi...
Picked up a bottle today. Stopped by three stores with three different prices. $25,$27,$30.
Bought one today. $20.99 Hope it's good. I'm betting on the Founders folks swinging for the fences.
Told the Beer Manager that I'd give it back if he could hook me up with a Coffee Bourbon County.
If anyone has a bottle of bolt cutter they would consider trading I have 2012 abyss and 2012 darkness. I would go 1 for 1 and could do a bigger trade as well if someone wanted to. I really want to try this beer but missed the window here in the twin cities for trying to score some. Let me know!
I have a couple for trade. Hit me up.
Just tried some. Glad that I only bought one bottle. (Still love Founders though!)
... It better change. :/
got one, but will probably end up trading it. i haven't been that into barrel aged barleywines as of late.
So many haters
What?! I'm seeing several people slam this beer without even trying it first. It's actually not "average" at all (just my opinion of course). Personally think it's one of the best in the Backstage series and one of the most interesting Barley Wines I've had. If you haven't tried it you should. If you don't yet have it you should get it!
I think some people just like the attention of slamming a "hyped" beer.
Grabbed one for $18.99 yesterday.
Jesus the prices. $15 at Bestway, 16+ at city beverage. 30 bucks is taking advantage.
Yup. $14.49 at Bestway trounces any other price. The Brewer's Kettle was even charging $20 I heard.
I'm contemplating trading mine.
I bought two, I'm not in a hurry to do anything with them. There's nothing I really want right now in way of trade anyway. I'll let one sit for a few months then drink it, maybe look to trade the other to a state where Founders isn't delivered. Maybe get me some IPA's from CA before July beach week.
There are a few RISs that I vehemently want to try, but I do believe I should let this one age before making a move.
My local store has it for 30 bucks, I told him he was crazy.
Did you snap your fingers at him?
When the guy at my local store said $27 I said wow. He told me " that's what they cost. The brewery was selling them for almost as much and I am having no problem selling them. "
Honestly, hard to fault him for that. 5 bucks a ticket and 22 a bottle at the brewery...
I paid $13.99 at Tasty Beverage Co. I was pleasantly surprised by that after reading this thread.
I agree. I told him he had a good point
I opened a bottle tonight and im not that impressed. The founders 10th anniversary was amazing and i was holding this to the same standard of awesomeness.
I guess I just prefer english barleywine. This is like a DIPA with solvent alcohol added. Not really getting much of the barrel aged portion (hidden behind the hops?) While the listed 15% and big alcohol impact suggest "age me" I dont really see aging this being a good thing. If you remove the fresh juicy hop quality, you are left with nothing much other than booze.
Color me disappointed.
Anyone see this in NW IN yet?
Wow! $14.49 is less than the wholesale price in Michigan.
