The problem with that 51% is that there is no consensus with the alternatives presented.
According to the results from ~450 votes since yesterday, 49% voted to conduct future Backstage Series releases in the same manner as Canadian Breakfast Stout.
25% said to keep future releases strictly to Michigan.
What’s striking about this result is that only 3% of Beernews.org readers hail from Michigan.
One could say that a portion of the other 22% of readers that voted to keep it in Michigan think it would be easier to just trade for future releases from Michigan friends (that would presumably have additional extras to send around under this scenario). It would be less trouble than to hunt them down at local liquor stores, many of which received a maximum of one case Founders CBS, if any at all.
