Had a couple of bottles of '10 Dark Lord. They were worth a LOT more than I paid (even including costs to go from VA to Chicago).

I drank them. They were tasty.

That's what beer is for

Did you go to the release? We've been loving their stuff.

I still have mine, yes

Yeah, some sucker will pay big for a 1 year old bottle of Pliny.  Good luck with that, dumbass.

To my great annoyance, I've still not gotten to try w00tstout. It's tough to score the good stuff in DC (aside from it being ridiculously overpriced).

I wonder what I could get for a '09-'13 Dark Lord vertical + Pappy-, cognac-, and port-barrel aged DLs.

I did. Was at Dark Lord Day. Had a blast.

Lots of folks there from all over with their local brews, doing trades. After I got a wee bit tipsy, I started hawking an "'09 Bud Light!"

Some Three Floyd's guys thought it was funny, and invited me and my friends to try out a small sample of their Dark Lord "special reserve" (that's not what they called it, but I can't recall what they said. It was small batch aged vanilla oak or some such. It was yummy)

Last three DL Days I've brought cans of '06 MGD and Bud. They're astonishingly good.

You should try an '07 Miller High-Life. It has sweet notes such that you'll be reminded of Champagne

Wish I liked Stout as I would try this one.  I was severely tempted to when I saw it at the store, but unfortunately stouts taste like awful to me.

Looking forward to trying any other kind they make.

The practice of trading beer doesn't bother most brewers. But buying beer, marking up the price and selling it is another matter.

Someone should tell them about these new-fangled things called bars.

...the questions of who would be responsible if a drunk driver who'd bought beer sold illegally online killed someone.

There's even a question?

Anyone know if the Woot Stout is being sold in Buffalo NY at all?
 
2013-12-06 09:01:36 PM
And yet another prime opportunity for appropriate use of the "Wheaton" tag passes by.

Try Beers of the World in Batavia, maybe? I know that's closer to Rochester, but they have everything. Of course, I found my bottles in a convenience store on Keuka Lake, so who knows...

Still have a w00stout that I am aging as well as a cigar city Marshal Zhukov and a few other rare stouts... That's the only beer I try and hold on too

You should see what New Glarus Very Sour Blackberry is going for; it was released this summer at the brewery. I can't imagine what it will go for after it becomes even more rare.

I'd call Village Beer Merchant on Elmwood Ave if I wanted to try to find some.
 
2013-12-06 10:35:16 PM
Not surprised by this, Anything that can be sold  will be sold online.

My buddy owns a beer distributorship in N.Y. State and when I go up there I bring several cases of certain beverages he can't get. It's for personal use of course.

Second. The w00tstout I had fresh was wunnerful stuff. The two I'm saving for late 2014 and 2015 will be better. On a cold night there's nothing quite like a barrel-aged stout. Sipped over the course of an evening, it's like dessert in a glass.

I have an unopened box of this sitting in my office.

Trying to decide whether to open it and have one when my professional designation finally shows up in the new year, or if I should sell it...

Save it to share with friends. Selling Westvleteren 12 makes the monks sad. They went through a ricockulous effort with the US distributors to make sure that every retailer in every state (with the exception of Hawaii, where they were willing to let the distributors tack on a few bucks for shipping costs) made the beer available to their customers at the same price at the same time.

I was lucky enough to get a brick. (ya rly). I've shared one bottle with friends, I've drunk one bottle because I felt I'd earned it, have one set aside for New Year's, and I have three left for special occasions over the next year or two.

Ah, I found my old post on the subject, which I'll summarize here: "However you enjoy it, be thankful to those who brewed it, and that you got to be a part, however small, of their story."

Yeah.  Although reselling it had crossed my mind, I would rather save it for special occasions.  Still, I have had offers...

As have I. My standard counteroffer is to dig a beer out of their cellar that I'd be willing to swap for. (Or better yet, "Now that we've accepted a trade, let's you, me, your beer, and my beer, and the beer this other guy has, get together and we'll taste all the beers.")

NoVA farker here.  Currently in Haymarket, moving to Alexandria in a few days.

If I find a source, I'll be sure to post it in the beer threads.

"It was not just our beer but a lot of our friends'," she said. "And I really felt like I needed to be an advocate for everybody."


Suuuuuuure she did and this has nothing to do with them realizing they can get more for it and will not take it all back then mark it up themselves.
