    Yep, another one of these threads. This elusive beer has always escaped me. What does it take to land one?

    I'm in the process of trading BCBVS, Bramble & CBS for 2 BA Speedway's
     
  6. A good consistant Southern California trading partner that won't gouge you. Or a super hot local release you can go to and offer for a bottle.

    A beer of similar price and rarity. Beyond that, good negotiating skills.

    I traded one for a BA9k

    i'm offering CCB Campeador Greaves, one-off, one of 240 bottles and a damn good beer. so far, nothing but crickets. if anyone wants to work something out i'm sure we can strike a deal.

    I would think the possible infection from the Rum Barrel Big Sound is a downer for this particular beer. A lot of BA's aren't into trading for lottery tickets, but you might be able to find yourself a ticker that just can't say no.

    I've been trading mine away for 1:2 for BCBS Variants ( except for Vanilla and Rare obviously ).

    I have enough traded out and want to hang on to the rest but these are trades that would easily pull mine:

    1 for 2 BCBS variants ( coffee/bramble/cherry rye )

    1 for 5 BCBS straight

    2 for 1 Rare

    1 for 1 BCBVS

    Can you tell I'm only interested in BCBS? lol

    i could see that. sad thing is that Greaves was done with a totally different batch of Rum Big Sound and there is not a single rating that mentions any sign of infection. it's a tremendous beer that i was lucky to try and lucky to have a bottle to trade.

    Looks like the trade is good to go, but if it falls through I'll be in touch.
