My Michigan based store has such large demand, that we will be selling the KBS with a limit of only one bottle per person and expect the line (before we open) to be larger than the quantity allocated to us. (Saturday April 5, 2014, 9:00 AM)

Nothing fun about it at all as a liquor store employee. People get stupidly pissed about beer, Iíll just leave it at that.

I love a brewery who sends their beer out of state and doesnít try to meet the demand in state.

We sold our 6 cases in five minutes. Nothing too eventful. Kind of sucks getting beers like this during delivery days as people crowd the beer room as soon as the truck shows up which makes it difficult to work. If you donít release it when it shows up the people that took the day off to purchase a 4 pack of beer get angry. You can only please a small part of your customer base which is plenty annoying.

Kind of pointless all around. I purchased a bottle and shared with coworkers right when it came in. Better than last years, but itís still just a bourbon infused imperial stout. Not sure why youíd line up for it.

hey pepsi not sure what type of profit you get of rar releases like KBS but would it almost benefit you to just scroll past and not bother getting them in?
