I'm expecting to get our case at our store tomorrow. Between this week and last week, we must have gotten 100 calls from people asking about KBS. We can pretty much guess what the call is going to be about before picking up the phone. At least 7 or 8 of my personal beer friends sent me texts asking about it. With our tight allocation, we have to do a 1 bottle limit per customer. I can't wait until next week, when I can just say "sold out".

Why not charge 12 bucks a bottle or something like that? Keep the riffraff out. Supply and demand, all that jazz

What? KBS? I walked into a small beer store near my house. it was on the shelf. I grabbed a 4-pack. asked the guy at the store how much they got...chatted for a few minutes and he offered me a keg of it. So I put the 4-pack back and walked out with a keg of this year's KBS.

There's quite a bit in Vermont this year.

4-packs locally are $21 w/ 5 cent deposit per bottle.

Hoping reweries and distributors start doing this. Feel like it's kind of a dick move for a store to do it. I don't think beer has fleshed itself out enough to have any sort of realistic price vs. demand structure. The "rare beer" world is quite young.

Funny thing is, he apologized to me, "Dude I'm sorry but the kegs are sixtels only. Do you still want it?"

and I'm not bragging here, just saying that it's not that hard to get. Or maybe Vermont once again lucks out on beer releases? No clue.

Sounds like you don't have a very big demand in that area.

Wow. I almost want to think that's a joke, it's kind of the opposite situation in Ohio. First you get a keg of BCS, now KBS? It's kind of funny / sad for me to imagine you guys in VT just tripping over rare beers in every gas station you walk into
