The longer these ex-whales sit around on the shelves, the happier I am.
Still have 16 &17 sitting around at my house. Did not buy 18 will not buy 19.
Might be old news but Waconia Brewing released their BA Driftwood RIS for taproom sales. It is $18 for a 750 ml bottle with no limits. Sounds like it will be around for a couple of weeks or while supplies last.
Agreed. Only sad part is that I have too much 2016 to drink through so I don’t want to buy the new stuff.
Nor will I.
1. What a terribly written article.
2. Thanks for posting this, I was completely unaware of this issue.
3. The "Bottle Hunt" thread is an inappropriate place to post issues like this.
Anyone have any luck getting a ticket for Barrel Theory Cocomac? Sometimes I wonder why I even try. Tix on sale at noon and under 5 seconds they are gone. There can't be that many people using bots, can there?
I tried as well. Got the 1 per screen and checkout only for it to say none available.
Yeah, I got one. Refreshed the page pretty consistently from the time the clock hit 11:59
I got several, I use bots though.
Nothing here. Had one in my cart 5 times only to not be able to complete checkout.
I picked one up. Heard from wife & a friend that both struck out.
Chicones in Hudson is selling beer they found in the back that is over one year old. Lazy Monk and Barley Johns and maybe more
go a head and buy it
So Weldwerks and Hoof Hearted now distribute to MN? Is this a recent thing or been happening for awhile? Thought I saw someone post about HH but can’t seem to find now.
To make this bottle hunt related, seeing both hit stores per social media.
Weldwerks has been here once before, getting a little more regular now, HH is new, Great Notion will be coming in the next few months....
OK, let me spell out my question.
Did you get this information from someone in the know at the store or is this idle speculation? Casanova's is one of the many places that often has old ass IPAs on the shelf, so I was asking if you knew for a fact these were pulled out of storage or if you just saw old stuff. That clear?
I just made it up................ ok I was told by somebody in the know. buyer beware, it might be all sold or pulled now, I am not sure. I bought some of the Lazy monk........my mistake
WELDWERKS: Total Wine had Alpha Bits, but the Hy-Vee across the lot in Mendota Heights also had TBD (a very nice DIPA).
What prices are people seeing for KBS? I saw a rumor (can't recall where) that someone saw it for $16.99. Worth picking up at that price, but not for the $23 or so it's been at the last few years, IMHO.
Yeah, it was $22 or $23 at Lunds and Byerlys downtown yesterday. Haven't seen it anywhere else yet.
Believe it was $23 at Total Wine.
$6.37 a single at my local family-owned store. I'd rather pay that there (and I did) than save a few bucks at a chain like TW. (Not to mention the longer drive, more traffic, etc.)
Was able to snag both Weldwerks JB and Apollo's. Also picked up one of each hoof hearted Dork's and permanent marker. However, I'm a little annoyed after getting home to find out that the HH beers are contracted brewed. Haven't tried them yet but generally feel cheated since they aren't actually brewed by HH.
So you are willing to pay and purchase this @ $1.50/bottle less for a beer you professed that " the longer these ex-whales sit on the shelf the happier i am". Either you like/want it or you dont. If $6 for the 4pk changes your mind why complain that you hope it sits on the shelf. LOL
Alpha Bits IMO is the best of the bunch so far from the 3 from WW here in MN and the (2)Hoof Hearted offerings.
It's an ex-whale. I am happy to see ex-whales sit on shelves for longer periods of time. It means they are more available. I've never thought KBS was anything other than "very good". Thus I'm not willing to pay a big premium over, say, Central Water BBS or Boulevard Whiskey Stout or the like. I hope that is clear.
I know you're trying to be clever. but perhaps you should read more carefully.
Perhaps you should not post "rumors" or things you" can not recall where". That would be clever.
Apologies for posting a beer-related question on a beer website, sir.
Where have you seen alpha bits? Do you mean juicy bits?
I would say their recent controversy is more than reason enough to not buy KBS.
I would caution: the actual facts are not clear. (Unless @Nivek43 has inside information?)
These days, I am very hesitant to join social media pitchforks and torches mobs, including the somewhat better behaved mobs that form on BA.
These cases happen a lot, often without any merit. Just bitter ex-employees looking to get a nice pay out.
That's what I was referring too. I do not have inside information.
Anyone see any WW or HH in west metro?
Has Dancing Man hit Hudson yet?
