Yeah, it's been hyped up for several years now. I got a couple bottles through a lottery at the liquor store. That's about the most effort I'm willing to put into tracking down rare releases.

I'm so done with these hype beers. Nothing is that good. It's beer people, settle down and re-prioritize your life.

You have to feel sorry for the poor saps who have to stand in line because they can't make their own.

Hmm, who knew. KBS was on tap at a local pub last week, and on the counter at my local distributor ($5.99 a bottle). Maybe I'll sample it next time.

It's good, but parabola and bcbs are better imo

I was just at 5 Seasons brewing (Atlanta area brew pub chain) and ordered their ESB. I had it just a few weeks ago and was looking forward to another since my next planned brew is an MO/EKG SMASH. My wife ordered their blonde, which is a pretty typical BMC-appeal beer.

They brought out 2 of the blondes. When I politely pointed it out, the waitress checked for me and the bartender confirmed it was the ESB I was brought. They were both pale yellow, there was no way MO was in the same building as what they were trying to sell me was an ESB. It was clear they tapped the wrong keg.

Another waiter tried both beers and could tell "the difference in the malt." I gave up. Before I left I told the girl to compare the colors in a week to the malt vinegar (for the fish and chips) on the table. I figure by then they will have fixed the problem and won't be still selling a light blonde as an ESB.

I hate being told I'm wrong when I know what I'm talking about. I'm no expert yet, but I had that beer just a few weeks ago. There was no confusing the two.

Heard some gems at the taproom I work in last week.

"Yeah barley wines came around when wine makers screwed up some wine batches"

"I don't like saisons mainly because they are wheat beers"

Off topic but hilarious.

"Jesus didn't need coconut water and probiotics, that dude was ripped.

I think they were confusing Barleywine with barely wine...

I feel like when people say things like that they're just saying something for the sake of saying something. Just filler, like my post right now haha. Someone asked me the other day at work why we didn't carry fortified beer and that they can find it in California. Please correct me if I'm wrong, but I feel like IF that existed, there would be very few out there.
