    I think it's coming, but I hear it's going to be as limited as KBS was... AKA I prob. wont be able to score any in Austin. KBS was a shit show here.

    Love some Backwoods.

    I probably won't go crazy over it though. If I find it, I find it.

    I hope Backwoods isn't too limited. That would be dumb. It sits everywhere else.

    It doesn't sit in Michigan anymore. Friends had to actively head to the shops to get their limited allotment.

    Yeah, I keep hearing people say this but in the last few years it hasnt sat on the shelf in Michigan. A lot of places limited people to 1, 4 pack.

    ... you realize they've been distributing outside of Michigan, right?

    I was in Grand Rapids last week and went to a store several days after BB dropped and they said there was no limit. Even with that no limit and a few days after the drop, there was still a lot laying around. And this was at Siciliano's, one of the most popular beer stores in GR so stuff disappears fast. Hopefully this is a sign of how plentiful it will be in TX. When I say plentiful I mean more than KBS.

    I was just shocked when i told the wife to come home with something drinkable as she was just going to the HEB here in Bastrop.

    when she came home with Devils backbone, Sam Adams winter lager(not a suprise they had it), and Founders Dirty Bastard, i was a bit shocked and very pleased.

    Yes, notice I quoted his post talking about Michigan. I was specifically talking about wether or not it sits on the shelves in Michigan.

    I just moved from Kalamazoo. Sciliano's gets more than most. The bottle shops in Kzoo saw a limited release, with 2-3 more cases 3 weeks post release.

    I love Founders beers, maybe more so because of their status in TX, but that Wulver, just fantastic! I'd probably say BB 93 Wulver 95...

    I'm lucky an awesome trader threw it in.... Btw I got no shame, go Buckeyes too! ;)

    Don't forget to let me know about that Westy

    I was there around 1:45 and the dude behind the bar told me they didn't have any but he thought they were getting a keg today. I went back at 3:00 (work in the AIG building) and he told me they had gotten 1 case and it was gone.

    Is backwoods that good? I'm not a Wee heavy fan, and have zero interest in it.
