    Dang. That is pretty neat! I'd love to see a list of what they'll be putting out, even though I won't be able to make it. Looking forward to pictures and reviews.

    That was so good last year on draft. I would love to get a bottle of it.

    Last year's cellar raid during the brew dogs taping remains the best single tap list for a single brewery I have ever been apart of. Hope they repeat it.

    I attended one of the last days of their Raid earlier this year....so glad I did. I was able to try CBS, Sweet Repute XXX, BoylrMaker and a mini vert of 12-14 Backwoods. The CBS was so free flowing it felt like a friggin dream. No doubt in my mind, I'll be there again for '16.

    I don't think they did. If I remember right, they basically released different bottles each day and you either had to stop up there to check, call or rely on some of the updates that were being posted in the '15 thread.

    I seem to remember a posting like the one they have now except it had which bottles were being released and when. It was quickly removed and replaced with a more generic one like the one they have now. Either way, can't wait!

    Didn't go last year, plan to this year... do they pretty much release same beers each day or is it different each day? It's 2.5 hr drive for me so trying to plan out which day(s) might go. Thanks.

    The day I went last year (Wednesday for Brew Dogs taping), all the beers were on tap all day. There were no timed tappings like they're advertising for KBS and CBS this year. The bottle releases were each day at open (11 AM) until they ran out. We missed KBS by 10 minutes.

    Bottle sales started on Weds, the bottles for sale coincided with what was on tap for the day, i.e. KBS vert weds, Imp Stout vert thurs, Backwoods vert Friday.

    I could give a shit about the bottles, the taplist was what made last year awesome.

    Notables included CBS, KBS, Panther Cub, multiple vinates of BWB & Imperial Stout, a BB cranberry Stout (that was incredible), Sweet Repute XXX, some others I'm forgetting but their board was CRAMMED full for more than a few days that week.

    I missed it last year, I will not be so foolish to miss it again. I need to finally get a chance at CBS.

    As someone who does not like coffee stouts, and was looking forward to dismissing CBS as "hype"...

    Definitely get yourself some CBS. I still look forward to having it on tap again some day.

    I wonder do they do a bottle release each day or will they run out before the 29th? either way i am super pumped at CBS but would love to bring some things home for some friends who can't make it.

    Check up a few posts (#12) to see how it worked last year. They released diff bottles every day and I'm willing to bet they do it the same for this year.

    Believe they also had BA Cran Cub, if I'm not mistaken. Was amazing when I tried it last.

    Panther Cub is making an appearance? I'll take that over CBS....Had them both, but have been craving and clamoring for more Panther Cub!!

    I think that was the one I was referring to. Forgot the name, but it was one of the better fruited Porter/Stouts I've had. Hoping for a couple new BA beers this year.

    It does not say they will do any special bottles releases. Hope I am wrong.

    panther cub is good, but not sure how you can prefer whats essentially a thinner version of CBS without coffee.

    Sure but his opinion is like saying the Toledo Mud Hens are better than the Detroit Tigers. It's an opinion, but it's wrong.

    Clearly there's only one opinion that is right though. Everyone else just doesn't know what they are talking about.....

    That's YOUR opinion. (And the Hens might be better.)

    I'm so excited to attend this year. I'll be going for at least 2 of the days, maybe more. I'm an hour away in Lansing, but I'm sure it'll be worth it.

    Upside of being laid off until February: Absolute freedom to attend each day of this event.
    Downside of being laid off until February: Figuring out how to pay for said enjoyment (and all of the badass verticals being released).

    Realistically, I'll find a way to make it here daily and buy anything Founders is offering. As much as Founders irks me, their beer rarely (if ever) disappoints. It'd be really nice if their servers actually gave a shit a little more though (instead of acting like they're doing me the favor of selling me one of their great beers...).

    Last year everything was tapped when they opened except for CBS, which was tapped every 3 hours I think (Noon, 3, 6, 9), but after the first day or so, CBS stayed on consistently because they weren't going through a keg in the 3 hours. Too many choices.
