Went to a nearby town with a decent bottle shop and asked if he had any KBS. I got a laugh and a "It sold out in the first day!"

So I asked if they would get any more, and they said that no, they only get one shipment a year.

So much for expanding your market.

And I had another Oberon last night. It's was as good as I remember.

Back when I first got into craft beers, Oberon was all I would drink while it was available. I got burnt out on it after a few years. Had one the other day (on tap) and it was alright, but didn't re-convert me.

Also, is Oberon actually hard to find? I seem to see it in every store I step foot in. It is not nearly as hard to find as Hopslam. Although the Kroger near me had cases of Hopslam when it was released, no posted limit per customer or anything.

No, Oberon is is easier to find than Two Hearted around here. Everyone loves it. Even a lot of BMC drinkers will pound a few Oberons in the summer.

Two Hearted is on the shelves at Meijer in Lansing area by the masses. Not near as massful as Oberon, but wouldn't call it "hard to come by".

Yeah, in Michigan it seems to be in most of the gas stations, but when Oberon comes out, it takes over.

They used Oberon as a calibration beer at a recent judging and I scored it low 40s. Lots of people scored it much less than that, but even though I was sure it wasn't Oberon, it was very good to me. I guess I'm just one of the lucky ones that really likes it.

Oberon on tap at the local Buffalo Wing Factory

I was going to order a pint but, after trying a miscategorized Magic Hat #9, I had to have a Two Hearted to get the apricot taste out of my mouth

Hey Homer, at our club meeting Friday night, we had our customary raffle with some really great prizes - a 55 bag of wheat malt, a bag of citra hops, some gift certificates. Then there was the customary pile of pint glasses. I don't need another stinking pint glass, thank you. Except for one - it was an Oberon glass! I lusted after it, but alas, someone else won it.

I'd like a Hopslam glass, but really that needs to be a tulip glass I guess. I got way too many pint glasses. My beer glass shelves are so full I have to keep ALL of the standard pints in the kitchen. I started a collection from all of the breweries I've been to.

I had to start a box in the basement next to the kegerator since the cupboard was too full of pint glasses from the breweries I have visited. It's about the only thing my wife will let me collect so I run with it. Plus it keeps her happy since she doesn't like matching things anyway...
