    Not sure the actual spelling Fragile or Frageelay as they pronounced it. It sounds delicious and the video is Awesome. Can't wait to score one of these!

    I hope this is released next week when I'm down there.

    Out of curiosity and for the same of conversation, why not just call it BBA YSYEO?

    Does anyone know if it will be a similar quantity released as bodacous?

    I was told Monday is the release date. Dunno if that has changed.

    I asked them on FB. Waiting to hear back. Probably less than Bodacious would be my guess.

    Bodacious was a 1 wine barrel release. Not sure how you get less than that.

    Didn't know that. Thanks for the knowledge. In the there was at least 4 barrels marked Fragile so, it's possible 4 times as much. Hopefully this will show up all over and in good quantities.

    Any idea what barrels are being used?

    I talked to a Kabach rep last Friday and he said it would be pretty limited. He used Smith St Spec only getting one case as an example. On another note, he also said they were putting a pale ale together.

    Karbach just replied to my fb question and gave a rough guesstimate of about the same size as Bodacious.

    The pale ale is called Fresh Nugs and its delicious. I had it on tap a few months ago.

    Wasn't there 100+ cases of Bodacious? Had to be more than 1 barrel.

    ISO if anyone can hook me up I'd appreciate it...wouldn't mind the base beer as well. Got plenty to trade like 2012 BCBS, White Chocolate, and other Bruery stuff.

    Going down to Galveston on the Dec. 14-15 would love to get a bottle of this as well as YSYEO. Big Christmas Story fan as well as Karbach. If it is sold out before I get there (which I'm sure it will be) I'm down to trade something.

    Karbach just posted on twitter that they are brewing a new beer today called Weekend Warrior pale ale. Fresh nugs was their fresh hop pale ale.

    That's not accurate. Will be released Monday, Smith Street getting a decent amount, but Fra-gee-lay will still not last long.

    As per Karbach's FB page.



    Fra Gee Lay, No. 002 in the F.U.N. Series will start hitting shelves on Monday! The availability will be similar to that of Bodacious. Some retailers may choose to put it on shelves immediately, while others may get it in throughout the week. Time to make friends with your beer/wine steward!

    If this stuff is as good as Bodacious I will be happy. I might not even make any trades next week.

    Loved Bodacious... Looking like the F.U.N. series is truly becoming something awesome! I'll probably pick up a couple of bombers.

    Lol that is entirely not true. One barrel is 31.5 gallons. One barrel would barely make 15 cases of bombers.

    I was told from my rep that there is less Fra-Gee-Lay than there was Bodacious, so good luck to all and to all a good night.

    If anyone can help me out I would be able to bring some Freetail bottles (la muerta, etc. I can see what is in store tomorrow) to trade to you this week. I need 2 bottles if you can. My family watches the movie the full 24hrs its on and would love to have these.

    Not surprising, but Specs Smith St is the first location to say they will have some.

    About a dozen people were at Specs when it opened. 3 bottle limit per person.
