Get the Kentucky BS and you will be in heaven if you like the stout. Once you go barrel aged it's tough to come back.

That's another on my bucket list...

Love this time of year for the stouts and porters the liquor control board brings in. Hoping to sneak over the border in early December to stock up for holiday craft beers from the good old US of A.

Just got word my daughter made the travel team again so we'll be in Pittsburgh again for Memorial Day weekend which means a stop at House of 1,000 Beers

Been chugging Hacker Pschorr Weisse lately, not so much for the beer but for the bottles. The swing tops clean up nice and I can use them for my cider...

In the meantime, if you can get your hands on any Firestone walker barrel aged products you should do so. Most of it is better than KBS imo. They deliver barrel aged goodies year round.

I'm not a big Firestone fan. I think their beers are above-average at best. I have never had their barrel-aged stuff, however.

A lot of my friends love the Firestone.

I agree, not a fan of their regular beers actually. But their barrel aged stuff is the best imo. The seasonal velvet Merlin stout is very nice at only 5.5 abv however, barrel-aged it is even better . But any of their annivsary ales and barley wines are something special.

Sold. I will give it a whirl if I see one. The worst thing that could happen is a curse your name for eternity. Or maybe I just won't like it.

How's it working out for you? Saw rave reviews. Can't get it here on the west coast. I'm from Michigan though, very familiar with bells

I'm picking it up from my brother in law this weekend. He has a buddy that owns a beer store and gives us great pricing. I think he only had to give 19 bucks for the six pack. I will post a review when I get it.

11 each here too. I'm hoping to get a couple more. They are clearing out goose island Oktoberfest here for 7 bucks a 12 pack. I may or may not have bought 4 cases of that stuff. Lol

That may depend on your customs and local taxes for alcohol imports in general. But if that is not the case normally with American craft brews, you may want to send an email to goose island of the location. Most craft breweries strongly dislike when stores up charge their rare beers. Goose island may not car since they are already sell outs anyways and are owned by Budweiser.

This was through their Canadian distributor - the LCBO...
