    I went to a store today and saw some Big John. It was $9.99. Didn't buy any. Kind of regret it.

    Then i went to another store and saw this....... (see photo). Decided to spend my money on KBS.

    Is Dirty Bastard worth buying? The store owner told me that they had to order 10 cases of Founders beer for every 1 case of KBS.


    The Dirty Bastard is good but I like the Backwoods bastard a lot better.

    Wish I could walk into a store and see that! And I'm with you on spending my cash on the KBS instead. However, I did like Big John a lot as well, it was worth the $10 a bottle. I managed to get three but have since consumed them all, I just have too much of a thirst to start any sort of a cellar...besides it's next to impossible to build a cellar one bottle at a time [​IMG]

    Finally tried the Cigar City Guava Ale last night. Not much of a guava man myself but there was something about this beer that made it enjoyable. Just barely though. Any more guava and it would have been disgusting.

    I just might get 1 or 2 bottles of Big John tomorrow. There is 1 case left at the beer store that i go to. Do you know if Big John is better than Night Stalker stout? Is the taste similar? I see Night Stalker at a lot of stores in NYC.

    I love them both. Big John is like Night Stalker but with more chocolate notes nicely blended in. It's a bit bigger at 11.5%

    Good idea. If you buy a case of beer and want to sell some of it... how do you do it? Ebay?

    I haven't ever sold or shipped beer before.

    But I can get cases of KBS for a nice price. Not sure if it is worth the trouble to sell. My biggest issue is that I don't have any place to store a case. My storage place at home is already full of KBS (40+ bottles).

    Big John would cost me about $9 per bottle so not worth trying to buy/sell.

    ^^ me? [​IMG] ebay can fetch some money and i think if put the disclaimer on it that you are selling the bottle and not the contents inside, you are OK. at least that is what every seller of beer i see if doing. not sure about Big John, but KBS sells. ship UPS or Fedex and bubble wrap the shit out of the bottles, bottom, etc. use tons of newspaper for filler. make some room and keep them though

    I picked up a few bottles of JW Lee's Harvest Ale from 2006 yesterday at the store. Fucking $7 a bottle, but the beer nerd manager was raving about it, so whatever. Seems highly regarded on BA.

    I also cleaned out their Kuhnhenn Barrel Aged 4D supply with a fucking swiftness never seen before.

    I have been looking around for the 4D. Very hard to find.

    Thanks for the advice about shipping/selling. Going to check out the ebay auctions and see how that works.

    Got a bottle of the 2011 Night Stalker can't wait to see how it compares to the 2010.
    Also picked up a 4 pack of Old Rasputin.
