    Much like others, I'm looking for a couple of these and I'm wondering, what is it gonna take....

    Have you traded for one and if so, how hard was the hit?

    Thanks.

    Has any asked the brewery about them being available for sale at some point? They should realize (or someone should tell them :) ) they could make a mint selling them.

    No. They will never produce these glasses again. Ever. They should only and will only be traded for other glass walez.

    FT: BCS Snifter
    ISO: Complete Zwanze Day set

    But to be serious, I might be a little upset if they decided to sell them at the brewpubs or whatever. The exclusive glassware figures into the hefty price tag of the event, right?

    I'd be more inclined to think so if they weren't just generic Bourbon County snifters, with no reference to the date or anything. I.e. the tasting glasses from the Rare release, which clearly state "Black Friday, 2010" on them, nomsayin?

    They originally intended for there to be more for sale, btu apparently had ordering problems. I wouldnt be shocked if it comes back at some point.

    If you have a Cantillon Iris glass or an orange Cantillon balloon glass, I'm down to talk

    I don't, I'm sorry. I have Funky Buddha snifters, one Hunahpu's snifter, J Wakefield t-shirts, Funky Buddha visor hat and other swag.
    Thanks for the input. I've received a few BM's and the general idea, is that it takes about 20-30 lbs ($) of whale meat. I'll head over to the search forums later.

    Thanks fellas.

    That seems pretty reasonable compared to some of the other postings!

    I agree....and I'd be down to do the same type of trade, maybe with a solid CCB beer.
