I am going to chime in on the raise the price argument. While waiting in 60 person line for 2 bottles, I posited the question, "How long would this line be if the price was $11.99 a bottle?" Most people thought about half as long. I would probably have still stupidly bought 2 bottles. Universal consensus was, while under those conditions KBS wouldnít sell out in 5 minutes, it would still sell out in a few hours.

Consensus was that this year was significantly crazier than last year, which was significantly crazier than the year before.

lets say production stays the same on KBS will this continue to worsen year after year or will it reach a point where KBS is not "cool" anymore and it will decline in popularity?

I personally donít bother anymore. It is a nice beer to enjoy a bottle of but not near worth the trouble to get.

Korgers(Grocery store) beer rep was followed around the store by one individual for 2 hours until their shipment arrived. It was a one bottle limit.

Founders doesnít use sixtels anymore. They purchased their own 1/4bbls and 1/2barrels. They stopped using them well over a year ago.

Luckily the little shop I work at is mostly off the radar... we got a case. I took a 4pk and spread the other 5 to regular customers who had asked if we were getting some. A few of the larger stores in the Portland area did raffles for two bottle limits at 5.99/btl. That being said we got about 20 phone calls and had a good amount of shelf stalkers coming in eyeing every inch of the store where beer is hidden...
