There was a pretty good turnout at Bellwoods today for SK. It was nice to see people lining up! I'm going to enjoy a SK this evening.

They wouldn't sell it to me :)
I asked. They said they hope BOYD will be ready in 2 weeks.

Definetly will be lots left tonight. There's 2000 bottles and I doubt most people are grabbing their max alottment. Plus, I was there around 230 today and no one else was around so I can see it easily lasting the weekend.

I'm going to be making my way to Bellwoods this weekend for the first time. Lucked out that it was on the same weekend of a new release, but I'm really hoping they have some SK left for me!

When I was there it seemed as though most people were buying 2-4 bottles.

A spiced beer at 13 bucks a bottle is a heck of a leap of faith for someone to take on 8 bottles at once. 2-4 bottles seems like a safer play, even though I'm sure it's a good beer.

Just opened the bottle 30 minutes ago. SK is a stellar brew. I truly think it's Bellwoods best stout offering, perhaps even the best beer they've made this year. I think they really hit the nail on the head with the style, and they have added their own unique twist that comes off flawlessly.

I know 13 per bottle is steep for 500 ml, but it's well worth it.

I picked up a couple bottles after work just now and there was small a line up. I have no idea if they're selling in order of the number but I have bottles 707 and 708 out 2100.

Looking forward to this one along with the other future barrel releases in the near future.

It's same range of a twenty-dollar 750ml wine, which these days ain't exactly high end. We live cheap in the beer world, sometimes.

Can't wait to try Skeleton Key Spiced and Rum Barrel Aged (1 year) Imperial Stout... you generally won't get that kind of effort put into a wine for the price.

I went and grabbed a few SK before stopping in at the pub for the always-great Monogamy Centennial. While I was there someone called me to get two more Skeleton on my way out and I said sure so I'm back there barely an a hour later and they'd JUST sold out (that is, if I wasn't kidding when I just wrote that.)
