    Split a case of it with my brother in law for $62.00 out the door. i cannot wait to do a comparison with last years. I was able to save 6 2012 bottles. One of the greatest beers I have ever had.

    Cracked our first bottle of this year's batch tonight. Just like we remember it, in all of its deliciousness and glory.

    Not aware of any Founders in our area yet. The case I'm looking to buy will be coming in next week in Reading. Have not seen any Sucks in the area yet either. I'll be happy to post when I see either for certain. Send me a private message if you're interested in splitting a case of either if I locate them.

    It's available in the outskirts of Chicago, and yes, it is as glorious as ever. I love this beer.

    Have not seen it in Central Indiana yet. I'm sure our price will be somewhere around 14.99. Beer prices in these part blow hard.

    Thanks very much for the offer, Donco, but my cousin in Chicago just told me he'd send me some of both. That said, let me know when & where you see any in the Philly area. I may want to buy some more. Thanks again, and best regards.

    their porter is one of the best out, their IS is one of the best out, and their BS/KBS is top 3 if not the best out. They're doing great.

    I had one on Saturday night and man, was it fantastic! I think it beats out last year, but I was just getting into craft beer around this time. I would be satisfied if this was the only beer I was ever allowed to have.

    Founders RIS is better than base Stone RIS. But if you are talking Stone Esspresso RIS vs Founders RIS.... I say it's a flip of the coin.
    Two of the VERY best commonly obtainable stouts. Both we'll priced too!

    Beer Yard in Wayne is taking reservations for Founders Imperial Stout if that's closer for you. Think we've got another week or two for Sucks, but I imagine Beer yard will take reservations for that also, and that will signal its arrival in SEPA 5 counties.

    My local beer shop has the UPC label on the shelf, however they haven't received it yet. Talk about the ultimate tease.

    Arrived 7 days ago in N.H. and is probably the best stout in the entire world. $3 a beer and absolutely gorgeous and delicious.
