    Just saw Steves on Junction started a list for KBS today. I imagine this is going to be hitting Madison in the coming weeks. Anyone have a more specific time frame?

    Not sure about soon, but it will be at most places doing a Founders event during craft beer week.

    I called Steve's on Junction today and they said it will be first come first served, no lottery.

    Interesting, I wonder what their sign up sheet was for?

    I thought they were doing a lotto too, maybe no one signed up? Or maybe etchings13 called one of the other Steve's by mistake. The other ones usually split up 4 packs and do one bottle limit for limited releases.

    I doubt no one signed up. I was going to head there to get on the list but I've yet to have luck when they do those sign up sheets. I really feel like you need to know someone at the Junction Steve's to get the really limited stuff when they do a lotto.

    Well, Jenifer street market is selling it right now (found via twitter), limit of 3 4 packs LOL. Remember, it's the "ultra limited" crack juice. Pfffff. Save your time and go buy a Big Bad Bap whenever you feel like it. This beer has become a joke.

    FWIW, Steve's Junction just tweeted that lotto is open until 9 tonight.
    Jen St. sold out.

    I did see that, thanks for the heads up too. I don't think I'm going to bother, more interested in the CW rye, that one is awesome!

    Seems more plentiful this year. Many places selling 4pks.

    Such as? Called a few places and they don't have it. Only one that did (Riley's) is holding a lottery

    All the Woodman's got it and what seemed to me to be a big amount. Star, Trixies, Steve's, Whole Foods, Jenny's...

    I'm here sitting at working getting notifications from friends on Facebook about all the places they are getting some. I'm guessing by the time I'm off it will be all sold out.

    Woodman's West had a bunch - limit 2. Steve's Univ was also limit 2. Hyvee may have been selling 4 packs, but they're out now.

    Not sure why but our allocation got split up. Whole foods madison will have more next Thursday. Something about the new whole foods in Wauwatosa and our allocation in the wrong warehouse.

    Not sure who you talked to, but this is false. Lottery was open through today. Will draw names tomorrow, beer arrives sometime next week.

    We're kind of moving away from lotteries minus the stuff that gets heavily truck chased because of consistent known release dates (KBS, Bourbon County, etc). So when a lotto is open for a week+, we tend to get a lot of names in advance. I wish we could get enough of those beers to sell to everyone, but it's just not going to be the case with more and more people wanting in on limited releases, and other people not being satisfied with a couple bottles or a 4 pack. Hopefully you'll have better luck this time around if you entered!

    My apologies guys, I double-checked my call history and it looks like I called the wrong Steve's.

    As soon as CW bottles Peruvian Morning again, I will slowly forget about KBS.

    FTFY. For being one of the early entries in the BA coffee stout derby, Peruvian Morning seems to have held its own remarkably well.

    Cheers man thanks for the info! I didn't get my name in, but you guys always have the stuff I want anyway. Conveniently located between work and home. Good for the spirits, bad for the wallet :slight_smile:

    You still have a chance if you missed it. Unless that was sarcasm.

    No, it wasn't sarcasm. Had to work all weekend. I'll probably still end up missing out at WF since I have to commute to the east side for work over the next month.

    If anyone missed out and wants to have at least one I have one more I'd gladly get rid of. Had one last night and it's just not that great anymore. I'm in Madison (obviously). Willing to work something out for another beer of equal value, or some decent home brew.

    Someone take him up on the offer. I think it is excellent this year!

    ChristianN Initiate (0) Nov 1, 2015 Wisconsin

    Yes, whole foods is (or was). went there around 11:15 and got a 4 pack

    Really? I was there at 11,30 and did not see anything. I browsed through all the beer but did not see any KBS

    For almost all of the limited stuff you need to ask at the growler-fill/cheese area.

    Jen St. had more KBS in today? Oh wait, I see. You had to buy a 4pk of Breakfast Stout to get one bottle of 14 KBS.

    I agree - more pronounced coffee flavor than earlier iterations.

    I just ran into this on the Shelf yesterday, are they having a secondary release?

    I ran into it at Miller and Sons in Verona. I bought one 4 pack, they probably had 4-5 left hidden in the beer cooler.

    Things tend to just sit there. Not a lot of traffic in their liquor store.
