    It's true! Way less promoted than last years KBS tapping for too familiar of reasons.
    What we're tapping this time around:
    KBS
    Breakfast Stout
    Imperial Stout
    Backwoods Bastard
    Dirty Bastard
    Barrel Aged Reds Rye PA
    Reds Rye PA
    All day IPA
    + that other "secret" session beer

    4pm this Sunday (4/06) in the Butcher & the Boar Beer Garden
    6oz pours available for the Imperials.
    Cheers!

    Sold out at Chicone's in about a half hour. They were selling it one four pack/person though according to Facebook.

    I was in town to see Once last night and hit up Surdyks for some cheese. Figured I'd ask while there and the beer lady said Thursday or Friday is when they were expecting to see it.

    On a sidenote, what did you think of Once? We're going on Sunday.

    To get the thread back on track, hoping I can score some over the next day or two if those dates hold up.

    So stores are expecting this on Thursday or Friday? If the Bells normal delivery day is early in the week is there a special delivery for KBS?

    I know many liquor stores that get shipments of all beer Mondays through Wednesdays so I'm wondering if they will get KBS next week or later this week.

    I've heard rumors of "special deliveris" i.e delivering on non standard delivery days. Hoping those trucks can get out on the roads friday morning (stupid weather)

    I'm pretty sure a Founders beer won't show up with the Bells delivery unless it's the same distributor, which it very well could be.

    Still think it's KBS because I don't know why he'd reveal it with another tweet and he even hinted it's "not the only aged product around here" in the Full Sail one.

    Certainly would not be the first time I've been wrong though!

    He's tweeted out a lot of Barrel Aged beers in the past 25 min, oh the drama.

    Initial tweet sure seemed like KBS but the following tweets made it seem like a bait and switch imo, could be wrong.

    Vinifera in Plymouth got it earlier this week. They said that they didn't get many and it went quick.

    Lyndale South says they will be putting it on their shelves at 5:30 tomorrow. Any guesses on what a zoo that place will be?!? Luckily they have a big parking lot...

    Too much drama for a single bottle from a 4 pack.

    I wonder how many car wrecks are going to happen from people slipping and sliding on the roads chasing trucks tomorrow?

    As much as I tell myself right now that I am over this insanity and I am fine drinking all the good beer on the shelf. I know I am just lying to myself and will be out there with the rest of the barrel aged zombies.
