    It's fresh hop time. The best time of the year.

    Cowiche was $12 last year. I think it's slightly jarring with Field to Ferment going for only $9.

    Hello friends! Question: is KDS distro different or thin compared to previous years? I ask because I've always been able to buy a case but this year my spot got a lot less than the past few releases. Or, would you expect more to be released soon?

    Seems like its spread more thin. I heard they made roughly the same amount as last year but have entered 3 new markets since then. So to answer your question...Idaho.

    Regular KDS has been easy to find so far. Whole Foods and Safeway both had it along with the regular Seattle bottle shops.

    Curious how the variant distro will be handled.

    I don't trade, so my beer paradigm is one where people asking are locals.

    Normally I'd just say I got you, but we have fucking lines outside Fremont 4 hours before they open these days, and apparently Idaho needed to have distro?

    Stay tuned though

    Yeah, it was actually considerably harder to get base KDS this year. Can't imagine the craziness of Spice Wars.

    I blame dontdrinkbeer .

    if you really want to have some mandible grinding fun, go hit the trade boards and try to land some AOKDS

    the cock fingering is not insubstantial.

    Yeah, there are apparently a few more cases worth of B-bomb than KDS out there. I tried to trade B-bomb 1:1 for KDS several times and failed.

    I see Brew 2000 is listed as part of the blend for the M3 Barrel Magic bottles being released at the Toronado beer dinner:

    Anyone got any more info? Is this another barley wine? Hoping for a non-peated version...

    Brew 1000 redux in Westland peated barrels was what I was told at HHC. If it's anything like the Smoking Jacket the smoke will be almost non-existent, but who knows.
