This post probably goes against my better judgement because it's going to be taken the wrong way by some. I really do feel for the people who love this beer but got shut out or only got a couple bottles. But this thread really does underscore why some shop owners just choose to hook up their regulars rather than try to be fair and divide up their bounty equally. It's plain to see that for the latter, nobody is really happy. So with that said, put yourself in the store owners position; for a release like this would you rather have everyone be pissed because you are offering 2 bottles at $6 apiece, or just make the people happy that spend hundreds of dollars a month in your store? For the record, I am not one of the chosen few...I will end up with a little under a case, only because I got 12 from the brewery and not because I am the apple of my local store owners eye.
