yes it's sold in bottles.  not quite CBS status, but KBS is getting there.

i stopped in to the Big Hunt on friday and ordered a non-regional, plain-ol' breakfast stout.  i was surprised when they served it to me in a pint glass.  last time i had it on draft, it was at the church key where it came in a 8 oz chalice.

Half price growler refills this Friday only at Whole Foods.

Not sure if it applies to all Whole Foods with draft lines, but I know it does to Vienna and Springfield.

Was able to find a sixer of Hopslam last week. Bottled 2/9/12, too (second batch as James mentioned earlier). I'll take it!

On draft?  I was there Saturday, I believe they only had 16 oz cans, $9 each.

Maybe it was... friend texted me from there saying they had it, I assumed draft.

I may have to retract my Bells statement from last week. Dug into some Bells Amber Ales over the wekend and it's a pretty tasty/drinkable session brew.

But why waste time on drinking session brews when there's so many good high abv beers to sample?

They snagged two cases of the cans two weeks ago. Figure it's dwindling down.  If they have it on draft... oh my.  If I go tonight (taco tuesday!), I'll report back.

edit: https://twitter.com/#!/BeerBBQBourbon/status/177882178221383680 - just cans it seems.
