    From the trunk of a car from Michigan that's how I'm getting mine. I haven't paid too much attention anywhere else, I know Lush in West Town got 1 case and the other 2 places I know about are kinda my secret spots. I'll tell you one of them is the Noble Grape on Chicago Avenue, they have a 1 bottle limit...

    I need an estimate (please). On the ebay/black market/after market for KBS. How much is a 4-pack worth?

    Is it so good that it is worth $70 for a 4-pack? $100? What is a fair price to pay when you consider the scarcity, etc..?

    Direct from the Brewery = $19
    Minnesota = $17 (damn you, ama)
    Chicago = $25ish - people are paying like $30ish second-hand.

    are you really seeing prices for $70 on eBay???

    Nope, it's originally priced at $19 a 4-pk at Founders, after it hits distribution you are usually looking at $22-25 at most stores, although I was told by a friend someone paid $30 a 4-pk yesterday. No beer is worth that much IMO, if you really want to try one, I'll just send you a bottle if you cover the cost of shipping. I'm just waiting for my Michigan connection to get his lazy ass down to Chicago...

    JSC4 - i've got beer this fucking beer going everywhere so why not another. i'll see what i can snap up at the stores around my house. my goal is 1 extra case. no promises. shipping isn't cheap, but you'll probably pay less doing it this way.

    That would be great. Let me know. Very nice of you.

    Even a single bottle would be fine. I know that KBS is a VERY limited commodity.

    I want to compare KBS to the other stouts I have had (Breakfast Stout, Bourbon - Goose Island, Stone Russian Imperial, etc..). I would like to see how storing the beer in a cave 100 feet below the ground will enhance the flavor. [​IMG]

    All I know is whoever I hook up with this beer, I'm going to Bedazzle my home address on the box. [​IMG]
