    I'm interested in the july 2011 release. I never tried this, and I really want to. What does it take to get done?

    I haven't seen it trading a lot but I'd assume some semi-limited BA beers should pull (BCBCS, a couple KBS, ...). I do see it lumped into the regular, FT:Bolt Cutter, FMB ISO:The other Backstage series beers, ISO's from time to time but I doubt anybody's letting go of Blushing Monk for FMB or Bolt Cutter.

    It is drinking great right now, I was not a fan fresh, but tried one yesterday and it was awesome!

    I just let go of one for two Twilight of the Idols. $4$ was dead on.
  7. It takes beer, probably $17 worth.

    This is a recent distributed release from a less-than-obscure brewery. For as much as you have been trading, Jeffrey, this shouldn't be difficult for you. Just post an offer on ISO:FT and see where it goes.

    Nate: Must be a venn diagram issue cause I had offered up stuff like BCS Coffee, multiple KBS, Icarus and what not to no avail. Hmmm
  9. There are zero threads on BA created by you with the words 'Blushing Monk' in the title, body, or any of the replies other than this one, so where exactly are you making these offers that nobody is accepting?

    I was able to get 1 for a BA Boris this summer. Recently I traded BA batch 9000 for 2 blushing monk as Xmas gift for my girlfriend. It took me a few attempts to get any offers. Good luck.

    I traded some fairly easily obtainable beers for this, and I traded it in person. Not sure it takes "Whales" or why it would be hard to get. Of course that trade was with MarkIntihar, and he then killed me with an awesome extra (when I thought I'd show up with great extras for him)

    Bottom line, trading is all about winning and losing, and I lost that one because the beers I received were better than the beers I gave.


    Honestly though... I think I gave him 3-4 bombers, and I have no idea what they were now. The agree upon trade was 1:1 though, and the 2-3 other ones were supposed to be extras.

    I traded a Sucaba 1:1 for a bottle about three months ago.

    These were on shelves in Chicago, so other shelf beer?

    Jeez, talk about jumping to conclusions- did you even bother to check the classifieds section of his local newspaper?

    Trades with Intihar don't actually count towards the final tally of beer value.

    I was the recipient of the BA 9000 and was very happy with the trade. Thanks again!

    I've got a line out looking for this and CBS for BCBCS, KBS '11, 2x BCBS '12, and 2x Black Note. No bites yet. Wondering if I bit off more then I could chew by trying to snag CBS as well...
