    Went looking for KBS today... was not delivered yet.

    Ended up with some other barrel aged stout to drink during poker night (and Ten Fidy and Breakfast Stout).

    BORIS the CRUSHER barrel aged. Hope it doesn't suck.

    That's cheap! When and if you can find around these parts it's closer to $20...

    No wonder it was selling so quickly. The entire shelf was nearly empty... and they usually keep shelves full stocked at this store.

    Founders Dirty Bastard on tap at Duane Reade UWS. Founders beer at a drug store chain.. wtf

    http://news.yahoo.com/s/yblog_dnainf...ns-serves-beer


    That's the weirdest thing i've seen all week, but I'm all about more Founders in the Tri-state area. Dirty bastard is probably one of my favorite beers and definitely in my top 10.

    Thanks for the link. Options for finding growler fill ups are getting better and better in the city.

    Though there are still not enough good beer shops around. I do most of my shopping when work takes me to CT every few weeks. I haven't made it to the place linked below yet.

    Good Beer NYC

    Interesting... probably expensive! And yes... Growlers are pretty much everywhere these days. But I think that Whole Foods is the only place you need to go. They have good beer on tap.

    Yesterday i was in a beer store on the east side and some guy walks up to me and asks.. "are you on beer advocate?". First time that has happened to me.

    That shit was happening at founders during kbs. So funny watching guys size each other up seeing if that person matched what their avatar is on beeradvocate. It was the most ackward 5 seconds watching dudes stare at each asking them if they are (ex.) "beergod69".

    Actually I'm sure that'd happen if we all met here so I guess I can't rag on them too hard.

    I assume so. WF has the perspective of a retail outlet and sells growler fill-ups relative to that pricing model. Bars sell at prices that reflect the cost of a pint sold there. But if a place has something I'm looking for I'll pay the $15 for it.

    There isn't a Whole Foods convenient to where I live and work unfortunately.

    For example... i know of a bar selling KBS bottles for $15 each. Just might give one a try.
