    They released it today, 30 cases throughout the state, in the seacoast Gary's had 2, Hampton Falls bev had 2, top shelf 1, and I think a few others around Dover, not sure about the whereabouts in the rest of the state, good luck!

    Yep. I called around lunchtime - all gone.

    When I was talking to Jeff at Jasper's he wasn't sure if any was coming his way or not.

    How'd you find out specifics? I spoke with a distrib. and he gave me some info for the seacoast but even he didn't know the exact spots or quantities. I can't believe The Beer Store got 9 cases...... I hadn't heard of any store in new england getting more than 2 per store

    9 cases seems a bit excessive for a single store if the state got 70 (and ludicrous if the total was 30)

    Most of the stores I frequent were 1-2 cases, one of them was selling 4packs... needless to say they're OOS now.

    Heard it from a bird. I'm guessing here, but maybe Beer Store sold to other stores? More than a few got 3+ all over the NE region.

    I was lucky enough to enjoy two glasses of it on tap at McKenzie's in Nashua Friday night before the keg kicked (which only took about 2.5 hours!). I heard there are two more kegs that made it to the state, not sure which bars/stores were fortunate enough to get them though.

    I think Kilkenny's in Milford got one as well, not sure about the third.

    McKenzie's was a pleasant surprise. With the amount of Founder's they have on draft I wouldn't be surprised to see them getting some more limited kegs.

    Killkenny's in Milford is tapping their keg of KBS at the beginning of American Craft Beer week (May 13th) from what I'v heard.

    The bar manager sounded pretty confident he'd be getting a few more of their limited kegs when we were talking to him. They always seem to have at least three Founders beers on tap when I go in there.

    Kilkenny's already looked like a pretty cool little place. I won't be able to make it for the tapping, but I'll have to check it out sometime soon when I'm in the area. I've always loved the Milford Oval anyway, but didn't think there were any decent bars there.

    My parents live in Milford and I would absolutely make the trip down to visit them and check this place out if I had the time. Honestly though, I'm shocked to see a bar in Milford getting KBS. I generally hold a very low opinion (in terms of the beer they drink) of the bar-going public in that town. I haven't even tried Kilennys yet because as any New England BA's knows, Irish-themed bars a dime a dozen and why would this one be any different? Just looking at the taplist on line, it's certainly decent but pretty generic with the bigger regional and national crafts like Rogue, DFH, and Redhook and of course the bland imports to as well. Good for them for getting KBS but I can only imagine most of the people coming in to enjoy a glass will not be locals.

    Probably just the rumor mill, but has anyone else heard about a KBS keg vertical being unleashed somewhere in Southern NH in the near future?

    Haven't heard about one being released in NH but heard of one happening at The Barking Dog in Amesbury.... not sure when or if its already happened, but heard from head bar tender who frequents the store I work at.

    Probably a case of facts lost in translation, but still good to hear not entirely fiction :)
    Guess I'll be looking into that....
