    $9.99/4-pack here in Columbia, SC. So, maybe a buck or so more than FBS and RRPA?

    No longer. Acquired a 4-pack in Greensboro today. Good stuff. I cannot wait to put some age on it.

    KBS is in 4-packs and I bet people would go apeshit over any backstage if there were in 4-packs too. I believe it doesn't get as much attention because it's not barrel-aged. it comes and goes pretty quickly so it definitely has a following. Plus I think lot of us keep it to ourselves ;)

    Got majorly gouged on half a case... 17.99 per 4-pack. The register's computer had an old price of 11.99 but the manager spent 5 min straight at some other computer/catalog/god knows what and pulls that number outta nowhere. This is in a suburb close to Boston

    Surprisingly found a 4 pack in my area, super stoked to try it this weekend. What RIS would you say this compares to out of curiosity?

    We got it twice at my shop in GA, $9.79 a 4pk. I wasn't greedy and only bought one. Now I'm regretting it.

    Wow, that's pretty brutal, even for MA. If it makes you feel any better, I still have 2/3 of a case for sale at $11.99 that most likely no one realizes.

    Got shut out on this one last year.. Tonight I was considering grabbing a bottle of the 50/50 Eclipse (for $28.) I really considered it until i seen a couple 4-packs of FIS on the shelf.. $9.99 each in SW suburbs of Chicago.. SOLD

    I gave a bottle of FIS to a friend at work who had not only shared a bomber of Bolt Cutter, but also gave me info on where to get KBS. The next day, he told me how disappointed he was. He had a little of it and then DRAINPOURED the rest. I have been let down by a beer before, but I have never dumped one out. Heinous!
