    Highly doubt there's a huge line. We were there last year at the same time and you could make multiple trips through the line. Winter Solstice releases didn't sell out that day either.

    It's Clinton only. Vintage bb4d, vintage 4d, vintage bb American imp stout, vintage old stock.

    Just got here a few minutes ago. Pretty much no one. It will last.

    So, premade 4 pack like the last couple of releases? I assume you can't cherry pick the ones you want...

    Yea. There was far less than I thought. I got one of the last stouts. Looked like only a case or less of that.

    I'm shocked that this is all that they had in their "cellar".

    Looks like they just dropped a random bottle. Can't say what it is as its not beer as my post would probably get deleted I'm sure but it's $40 and it rhymes with "bead"

    I can't figure out why I'm always so drawn to knowing what they do, considering they don't seem to have their s*** together and I don't think their beer is anything special.

    I think because if they did get their shit together, they would be the most desired brewery in Michigan. My goodness, if they could bottle on a semi-regular basis... They've made good beers for so long. I think we're just waiting for them.

    That's what I don't get. I don't know what beers are so great by them. I've got the BB4D and BBBW, and those are good, but they are obviously very limited. I know lots of people like DRIPA, but it didn't stand out to me - maybe I need to give it another try. I'm not saying their beers are bad (except for Raspberry Eisbock, which was gross), but I just haven't had any beers that really wow me from there.

    I actually wonder if they're better of not bottling regularly - keeps some of the buzz about them, and if they did bottle, their beer might get lost amongst a lot of the other options on shelves.

    I was able to finally try Raspberry Eisbock on Friday night - it was very good. I'm a huge fan of BB4D - it's top notch IMHO. Also, they had Blueberry DRIPA which was excellent. With all that said, I totally agree this place does not have their shit together which is a shame because they do have some excellent brews.
