    Also got mine at Woodman's for the same price. My eyes nearly fell out of my head when I saw how many there were and the price. Wish it was so easy for the other members of the Backstage Pass Series.

    That would be them.. The two younger guys are nice there, I think the other guy perhaps the father sets the prices and when talking about CBS back in the day, he was just bummed he didnt get any to price gouge which I found obnoxious.

    I guess Karma for their prices is the bonehead decision to order seven cases of Short's Nicie Spicey. That will sit on the shelves for a year based on their traffic and price.

    Stopped by Founders today on way home from Holland, tons of Frangelic Mtn Brown in the cooler there still. Probably helps that they are limiting to 2, so no one cleans them out.

    After I picked up a bottle from holiday I stopped through to see if I could get a bottle. He told me it was going to be 30 or 35. I told him there's no way. He got on the phone and then said he couldn't do anything lower than 20. I offered 15 and he still said 20 was the lowest so I ended up walking too. I won't be giving them anymore business. There are plenty of smaller liquor stores in the area that run through the same distributors that will charge reasonable markup (still more than holiday but just a couple dollars more)

    Go check out the place on 10 1/2 mile and John R. referenced above. They had at least 15 bottles on the shelf yet today. Nice guy, too.

    Thanks for the shipper today. Enjoy the wheat wine.

    I agree, the guys that run Amoris are nice guys for sure. They made sure that they followed through on getting some FMB after I let them know about it, called me when it came in, and didn't put it on shelves until I had a crack at all that I wanted to get. Even though the markup was more than my regular stops it really blew me away how nice they were throughout the process. If other places are out I'll definitely be hitting them up in the future!

    Hartland MI:
    23 Place on Old 23 (South of M-59/North of Brighton) has at least one for $14. They also got a case of Ruination 10th Anniv ($8), I bought 2 so there were 10 left when I left.

    Anyone in central Ohio looking for one still? Grabbed one for 12.99 today
     
  15. Got a couple bottles of this. I'm glad all the hype of these backstage founders beers have finally started to die down. I got a growler of this at kbs day this year and it wasn't anything special.

    I stopped following this awhile ago, so not sure if it is sold out mostly in the city or not, but if you are looking for a bottle, I know a shop on the north side with several still in stock. Not sure if theres a limit. I believe the price was a little high, somewhere between $16-18 but I forget now. BM me
