    I just drank the KBS I acquired and, honestly, I'd add Dragon's Milk to the list. KBS was nice, bit it isn't worth the trouble to have it a second time.

    I just popped a 2009 vintage that I found hiding in my cellar. It's tasting great.

    A year ago I would have been all over this hoping to get a 4 pack. Now.... I ain't got time for that. It's Friday night and I'm tired.

    With the law of diminishing returns and breakfast stout at $10 a 4 pack I don't understand this insanity.

    Zipps must have staggered releasing it- as a friend of mine told me he was able to get a bottle there last night.

    I don't think so. I was there when it was brought out, and when it kicked. Others came in and were told that it was gone. They also tweeted that it was gone shortly after 2 pm.

    One of the guys at zipps told me they were planning on staggering the release so that people who worked the day would get a chance to get a bottle after work. Not sure if they did though.

    I actually tried cellaring Old Rasputin, not terrible cellared but it didn't seem to improve enough for me to wait to just enjoy all I have and continue to buy regularly.

    Heck even for a I'd say reasonably decent BA stout, Dragon's Milk ain't half bad for a year rounder and the price imo.

    I got a tip on a 4 pack near me today. But, I have to ask is anyone drinking it? Lots of FT: KBS on the web.

    Last year was really brutal and embarrassing for many reasons. I learned my lessons and put everything I learned into making this one better. I think everything went really smooth and thank you so much to everyone who showed up today, couldn't have asked for better weather either.

    Again, thanks a ton, hope those of you that made it enjoyed yourselves.

    Cheers!

    No sir.
    Great bartenders in the beer garden. The guy said it was about 20 minutes last year. This year was about 45! Haha. Either way, great beers, great event. Fiancee and I were lucky enough to split the last 6oz pour they basically drained from the tap line. Glad it lasted 45 minutes this time.

    I had some people over for a 4 year vertical last night. 13' was everyone's favorite because we thought 14 was a little hot and that the coffee had faded off a bit in the others.

    Anyone know if any place is getting it today? Or still has it (long shot I know). I missed it last week.

    I've heard from a few folks that some stores will get their allotment this week. Not sure where or when though.

    I was in Lakeville this weekend and asked their liquor store about it and was told they were saving it for beer club members only. That's crap!

    Maybe if you gave them $300 you could have a shot at it! Or for $1000, two rare beers!

    But that would be ridiculous...

    Rochester got 10 cases today divided by 5 stores. 1 case is being withheld until Wednesday at one location. Otherwise, all gone already. Cheers to you truck chasers.
     
  39. Mnmaverick

    Mnmaverick Mar 23, 2013 Minnesota

    Were they limiting sales or did 9 guys buy a case each? I have a hard time believing there are enough people in Rochester seeking KBS that they would sell 9 cases that quickly! Or maybe the Twin Cities truck chasers have expanded their net.

    I was able to secure a couple bottles, it was limit 2.....I have a feeling that a lot of people were after this beer in rochester. At Andys north there were quite a few 4 packs with peoples names on them...wasn't to thrilled about that, should be first come first serve
