Default Founders CBS

Anyone else manage to pick up a bottle? I drove a buddy of mine to get it at our local pub... He got the last bottle but has promised to share. (What a pal!) Anyone have any interesting stories about finding a bottle? A friend of mine in Brooklyn sprinted four blocks from his workplace to a small diner that had it, and was greeted upon exit by a half dozen other people sprinting to the same establishment.

Haven't tried it yet, but I'm pretty excited for that day to come.

So is it good or what? That is a good brewery for sure but I have only heard of people finding the bottles not if it's actually any good. What is the hype all about anyway? Limited release?

Personally, I'm pretty irritated that they concentrate on sending so much of this beer out of the state. They are forgetting about those of us that have been supporting them since day one. Those who are in the pub regularly and have mug club memberships. I showed up and they already cut the line off so I just went inside and had a few. If anyone out there gets extra bottles and wants to trade for release #1 of their Backstage series, Blushing Monk, I have one still.

I've had it a couple of times, draught. I prefer KBS and didn't feel motivated to kill myself trying to get CBS in a bottle. It is definitely a good beer, but there are definitely good beers that are easy to get too.

Strange. I was there at 9am and managed to get in the line that was stretched down the building, across the parking lot, down the street, down the street again, and almost down the side of the building to the opposite corner from where the line started.

And I was 491 out of 850 tickets. As I loaded empties into the back of my jeep after I got my bottles, I saw the guy with the tickets and he said he had plenty left. The line was not very long after I got mine. I'd guess maybe 100 more people at that point.

Some guys came on the day it was released to the stores, thinking that the taproom release was that day.

I have two bottles and I got special plans for 1 of them. Not sure if I am snobby enough to drink a beer that is going to over $100 on ebay though...

Living in central PA, an hour and a half from Philly, there's only one place within a half an hour that had any and they only had one case. Unfortunately.

Selling rare beers for a huge profit kind of ruins the spirit of craft beer for me. :/ IMO.
