    Ditto. Drove to a couple stores on my lunch break and both had several cases. Limit 1, $24.99 each. Falls and elevated.

    Looks like CBS just hit Princeton's MG.

    Haskells off 394 and the Total wine over there each had bottles when I was there 40 minutes ago.

    Well, that might be good for someone that has been at work all day and no chance to get a bottle anywhere else. Would I pay that, no, but it will be sold by end of day.

    Save some for me guys! My flight lands at 2:00 and then I will be off to pick up a bottle in the south or west burbs.

    I thought the (2015?) draft-only release was on par with the original. I've heard great things about the new bottles... plan to open one myself tonight.

    Liquor barrel in Brooklyn Park has 7 CBS bottles at 11:30 this morning. They also had a BCBS barleywine they just received today.

    Haskells MG got more BCS and barleywine in today too . The beer manager said a bunch came into the cities this week.

    They got CBS too, cheaper than TW.

    Does anyone else find it a bit ironic that a small craft brewer would name their beer after a big conglomerate's catch phrase?

    I'm unsure if you are being sarcastic here, but it seems clear it was to take a shot at AB.

    Midway Liqour still has about 10 bottles CBS behind the counter.

    CBS is all over. I wasn't expecting to see it out near me today, but Westside and Corburns in Albertville have it already.

    This was one that, for me anyway, needs to be warmed a bit.

    Right off the tap it tasted no different than KBS. A little warmth brought out more of the maple.

    One of the workers told me today their distributor sent out 15 cases of CBS and they got 5 of them somehow, pretty crazy considering I seen a few higher profile stores in or around the cities say they got much less.

    Did you get it at HopCat? If so, is it looking like it might last an hour?

    That's exactly how it was a couple years ago when I had it on tap. Cold, it was nothing special. That's my opinion on a lot of bigger stouts though.

    So many liquor stores in the north west metro still waiting on their delivery of CBS today. Most haven't been happy about it from talking to them.

    A buddy and I cracked a bottle this afternoon, It's a damn good coffee/breakfast stout a notch above KBS but the maple could really be more prominent even after letting it warm I still wanted more sweetness/maple.

    I did. I didn't ask how much they had left, but it's only 5 ounce pour with a limit of one, so I'd assume it'll last a bit.

    CBS at TW Bloomington now. 2 bottle limit at 25.99 per. They said they got a lot of it, but didn't give exact case amount.

    I'm really impressed with Founder's handling of this. It appears the budget busting price of this amply supplied whale has really kept the demand in line.

    As someone else already said, it's definitely supposed to be a shot at AB. I mean, the logo and font is identical to what Bud Light's used to be before their whole retro re-branding they're in right now. Modist definitely fits the bill of the stereotypical craft brewery that AB was taking shots at a few years ago in that infamous ad.

    Great IPA nonetheless!

    I forgot to include BCBS in the list of what else G-Will Liquors CG has. I think the woman said limit 4 ($10.99), but I didn’t care enough to confirm.
