    Interesting idea, but pretty sure they said this had something to do with their coding system for their barrel program.

    They are delicious though if done well.

    i agree, i just find it ineresting that brewers are opting for this style over more popular ones. For instance i noticed that Other Half's doug and Maine Brewing's Beer 3, both black IPA's, both moved a lot slower then other beers from those breweries. So i find it interesting that lately i'm seeing more of these type of beers not less.

    Yeah, but the guy was in Michigan and it popped up all over the place here over the last year. Not comparable to the situation in Oregon.

    I guess I do because I never saw/heard of it in metro Detroit. I will make the 2.5 hour trek next time though its being poured at the brewery. Shit - I showed up 10 minutes early at the MI Beer Growler Company when they tapped KBS and I got squat - I've had my fair share of KBS - just haven't found CBS yet.

    Picked up a bottle and am excited to give it a try. Any other sightings? No reviews yet. I'm planning to hit this one on Thanksgiving day.

    Really? They just posted 2 hours ago that it was on the bottling line today, and you've already got it in Virginia?

    Surprisingly, yes. This beer wasn't on my radar yet, and I figured I lucked into the right place at the right time; the case had just been delivered. Central Virginia is my area. Paid $15.99 and figured I wouldn't waffle because it would likely be gone quickly.

    Yeah, I think we're gonna need some more details. You grabbed this beer?

    That's a 12 hour drive. They must have flown a case in to your local store.

    sounds like a certain distributor or store didn't get the memo about holding this until a certain date...

    Well, I'm sure they do multiple bottlings of the beer, given the size of their distribution footprint.

    It's amusing though, because Founders (and I'm sure many other brewers who are large enough and have a significant social media presence) likely puts pictures and status updates around their bottling as the release date approaches to help build excitement. It gives the impression that the process of brewing, bottling and shipping the beer is a single, linear progression, when in reality it is multi-pronged and often involves delivering product to distributors well before the release date to ensure it will be in market at that release date.

    But then when a distributor or retailer goofs and puts it out early, it can throw a wrench in the social media plan, because it looks like the bottles are being sold before they are bottled. :grinning:

    Hey now, this is no place for logic. More pitchforks and shouting, less of your "fancy" thinking! I'll get us started:

    First, there was the Backwoods Bastard debacle and now this! I'm sick and tired of Founders constantly shafting us locals by giving everyone else in the U.S. first dibs on OUR BEER! I think they just totally hate us. Someone tried to burn down my shed last week, I think it was a Founders employee. And last month, I was driving in front of their "brewpub" (more like giant dumpster, if you ask me), and someone cut me off. Plus, there was loud music coming from a car in their parking lot. I don't know why they're not doing more to make that area safer! To top it off, I got a paper cut while opening a box of All Day. I'm so sick and tired of all their hate!

    If any brewery can pull this off, it Founders. I'm looking forward to this one.

    I actually just read that a minute ago. You know its not an accurate rating. I don't mind reading that it is sweet. CBS was sweet... Hmm...

    I'm pretty sure this happens every time with a Founder's Backstage release.

    More CBS, less PAM.....at least that's what I say.

    I'll be picking one up but I'm quite confident if they didn't dry hop it after aging it will just be another ba imperial stout.

    Just picked up a bottle in Charlotte. Odd to pick up a beer off the shelf that has no BA reviews and only 2 Untappd checkins. Wonder if a distribution mistake was made.
