    Jeff and Ron talked about the reusing of barrels in the podcast they just posted on their website. Said they reuse barrels 3 times.

    I'd be very curious to know what this takes.

    I've got one that I might be willing to trade. It would really depend on the offer (as I've only ever had one bottle)

    You'd be surprised what people want for beer. I have something set up, I feel a bit much on my end but I'm happy. I love me some whiskey rodeo

    whiskey rodeo is probably the best jk beer, imo, and by rating here too I think, and there really wasnt much around. I assume it would take some bigger stuff.
    as such, I would trade 3 BCBS for one...

    I literally would not trade my last Whiskey Rodeo for anything. Not even rare whalez, bro.

    I consider it to be the finest beer ever crafted in Texas. Moar!!
  7. Azzy

    Azzy Savant (290) Texas Jul 16, 2012

    I'd do something around those lines. Especially when I have craploads of bcbs and no Whiskey rodeo

    I just traded mine for multiple DRs including a #1. It was worth it to me. Its just going to depend on how bad someone wants something you have.

    crusian Advocate (620) Oregon May 14, 2010

    me first. :p
  10. After Azzy is taken care of...
    If anyone wants BCBS and has an extra Whiskey Rodeo or variants, I am your guy.
  11. crusian

    crusian Advocate (620) Oregon May 14, 2010

    I'm sure you could get regular weasel rodeo pretty easily for the BCBS

    mattisloco Savant (455) Texas Feb 13, 2007

    Ya... I'm afraid I'd want an arm and a leg for mine. This will sound retarded to some but I wouldn't give a bottle of Whiskey Rodeo up for any of the regular Dark Lords other than 2008.

    I think I have an 08... But no I don't think I want whiskey that bad. Lol

    I would toss someone an abyss for one though

    Just traded 3 WBR in the past month...got Sexual Chocolate, Event Horizon, Lindley Park(2), Wake n Bake(4), Silent Night(2), Speedway Stout among others in return. Actually had to trade for one locally (thanks Kmello) to complete a trade and gave up my Flanders Fred for it. Wish I still had one to hold on to but I've popped several since it was released and feel good about what I got in return.

    Shit you commited a lil robbery on that one for sure. Well over $100 for $60. Hope you hooked him up fat on extras
  16. crusian

    crusian Advocate (620) Oregon May 14, 2010

    That sexual choc is a mistake though. just had one and was extremely underwhelmed. Glad I was able to try it and form my own opinion on it though. let me know what you think.
  17. lokieman

    lokieman Savant (475) Oklahoma Jan 20, 2011

    Well two separate trades with other stuff involved on my end but the anchor in both deals were the WBR's. I hear you on the Sexual Chocolate...the dude who traded it to me said don't even think about opening it until next year. I don't care for overly bitter stouts so I tucked it in the back of my cellar to forget about...

  18. Had a WR a month or so ago with DrummerMattie02 and I thought it was already past its prime at this point. Maybe it was just the smokey/roasty/pepper flavor masking the barrel, but I didnt get much in the way of WB-aging at all like I did last summer when it was released.

    Wow. Anyone else had JK's last release of WR recently and thought it was past due? I have one sitting and waiting for MLB Opening Day.

    drive to austin and you can get the 6 bottles that are STILL sitting on the shelf at royal blue grocery on nueces.
  22. StArnoldFan

    StArnoldFan Advocate (575) Texas Dec 28, 2012

    Yeah they still have some Funk sitting on the shelves here in Houston too, I'm just helping out some people that didn't get Abyss and want it. I have 4 bottles of Abyss and would rather have more Funk than Abyss

    Please do. It's just great to see people doing awesome stuff for each other. TJModica blew my mind just sending me a handful of wants with no requests in return last week. Little things like this really set our region apart and bring me back daily. Plus you are getting a great beer in return!

    There's funk at CM NLamar.

    StArnoldFan Advocate (575) Texas Dec 28, 2012

    I remember reading on this thread about diff caps on some JK beers, I have some Funk with different caps. Is there any diff between the 2 in taste? I'm not gonna do a side by side so I'm looking for opinions from somebody that has already had both.
  34. BeanBone

    BeanBone Savant (445) Texas Oct 12, 2006

    I have a similar question about RU-55. I have some with a small gold cap and one with the mascot on it. Different batches?
  35. El Cedro and RU-55 are at the Cove in San Antonio, per their facebook.
