    Had a wee taste of Utopias on Wednesday. Wow. Good stuff.

    Apparently Founders will be distributing in TX starting next month. I'm very excited after all the hype on this board.

    Yep. They are expanding nicely. They increased production quite a bit.

    Oh well. Hopefully they sell them at the brewery again.

    I tried for 5 minutes then I came to my senses that it wasn't worth it.

    The email I got says draft only starting April 8th, then bottles starting from May on a normal release schedule. Looks like we'll be missing the next Backstage release sadly, but as long as I get Double Trouble I'll be happy.

    I've got to keep my eye out on CL/thrifts for a cheap/free steel locking file (I think it has to be legal size to fit like that). Then I can store empties and carbonate/condition in the seedy storage areas of my apartment building (keyword being *locking* file).

    Hell...I can probably find some electricity in there, so could rig one of the drawers up with a temperature controller and a heat source and use it to ferment in the spring/fall/winter.

    Got my ticket for Founders Doom release, now I just need to check into a couple local stores for KBS when it releases

    On the topic of CBS from a few pages back, what do you guys think a 750ml is worth?

    What do you think it's worth? Are you buying or selling?

    I'd be buying, I couldn't really justify spending over $40 on it

    So offer $30 and hope for the best. It would certainly fetch more than that on the open market though.

    CBS is good. Not $40 good.
