and Iím not bragging here, just saying that itís not that hard to get. Or maybe Vermont once again lucks out on beer releases? No clue.

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

I apologize youíre right. I had to google it. Iím not a keg expert but what I have says 7.75 gallons and sixtel is 5, right?

Adam you can send me any KBS on the shelf you dont want :)

Holy crap. I havenít been following this thread, apologies but this sounds insane. Isnít MI their core market? Theyíre doing like Goose Island and keep expanding to new states and the local stuff is drying up way faster. Iím sorry to hear that. Our best VT beers arenít available outside of the state so I havenít had that issue with vermont stuff.

as for the rivers of BCS and KBS kegs that weíre seeing, I have no idea why there are so many of them floating around Vermont. but iím not complaining.

They all pass the stores up en route to HF apparently.

Thereís been one bottle limits at pretty much every store here in the KC area (I hear $5-6/ea.). To me thatís plenty goofy. But thereís more of it total here in town this year because Founderís is on both sides of the state line now.

Beer releases like KBS make ashamed of the beer community. 8/10 people today had nothing but negative stuff to say about how my store handles these rare beers.

Newsflash itís a fucking beer and 100 other people called/came in before you. If finding a rare beer is that important to you then I feel sorry for your family life. The whole hobby is getting gross and tiresome and Iíve seen it from many sides. We should all really be really ashamed of how immature we are when it come to limited beer.

Edit: And no Iím not going to tell you how my store handles releases because 8/10 of you are going to bitch and complain despite not being within a 10 hour driving distance of it anyway.

Any one else having troubles in Indy? Indianapolis is becoming a frustrating place to get your hands on good beer. No one knows anything about KBS this year while my buddy in Ft Wayne took home 17 bottles on Tuesday.

I show up to work today and there are already 2 people in line waiting on us to open at 11am. I explained to them that the truck hasnít even showed up yet and it could arrive any time within the next 6 hours. All of this for 1 bottle.

I asked the 1st lady in line if she has ever had it, she said no. She took the day off work and her husband really wanted to try it. I can kind of understand how these new craft beer enthusiasts can succumb to the hype. Still, though..

While typing this I was interrupted by a guy calling asking about KBS
