    If anyone is headed to the BA FIS release today and has some extra or isn't going to max out their 5 case allotment, please please please hit me up. They cancelled school and I'm not going to be able to make it there, but I really want to get some bottles.

    Really? Shiiiiiit. Welp, either they didn't bottle much or fuckers be maxxing.

    I actually drove by just after 11 as I had to pick up some packages downtown and saw a big ass line. Nope.

    Went to 8 Degrees and bought hops instead. No regrets.

    Did Founders learn anything from their first barrel aged Mothership release?

    Narrator: they did not.



    5 case limit and $15 six packs of 2 year aged FIS? What?

    Hey man, it was cold outside. They wanted that shit done. Taking care of their employees first.

    Someone on BA that was near the front of the line when the sale started said a Founders dude announced that they had 247 cases.

    Glad I didn't try and take time of off work to go. At least I had it on tap at Barrel Age days last year.

    Yeah that could have been a mess with the weather today and the construction and then get shut out.

    So, they are going to continue to release mediocre shit in the Barrel Aged Series?
