    I said if you paid for shipping (which shouldn't be much) I'll send you a bottle, I wouldn't waste your money it's a good beer not great. You should just save $15 and by a bottle of Bourbon County Rare instead...

    Man I do not get this business practice. You have a product people want and you cannot provide a descent quantity to get it in the hands of customers. I realize part of their strategy may be to create hype but the scarcity is overboard. Limiting people to a bottle is ridiculous. Let's face it, most will not even get that.

    I might go the ebay route as well just to say I have tried it. I am starting to lose interest though. [​IMG]

    I think they are probably producing as much of this stuff as they can afford to. Do you know how much equipment it takes to hold a beer over a year? That's a huge opportunity cost because they could be using the same equipment to make other beers. Most of these microbreweries are REALLY micro...meaning they are very small and have a limited capacity.

    Paulener Munich lager is just the perfect beer. Not too heavy for summer, not too light for winter, goes with all kinds of food.

    When I was in the Czech republic in the late 90s I fell in love with an ale called Krusovic that was everywhere in Prague. never been able to find it anywhere else.

    Dude. This facility is no more than 20k sq ft. Including the brewpub. On Saturday they probably netted $32,000 in KBS sales and probably another $20,000 in food and beverages from people hanging out. It's not exactly like they are rolling in it. It's a once a year event. I'm sure if they could produce more given the hype, they would.
