    Would a King Henry for 1 Proprietor + 2 BC coffee be fair trade? Would you do it??

    I would keep my KH. Don't give in to the Prop hype
    LopeJuice and sandman3479 like this.
  3. If you haven't popped that kh by this point I would hold onto it... Having said that 1 prop plus 2 bcbcs seems slightly low. Not by much but I would ask for 1 or 2 other beers (add a couple bcbs or kbs to the prop side).

    But again if you're dying to get rid of kh I would use it for something else.

    No. I had KH again last Saturday and it is amazing, still.

    Keep in mind the people who typically say it's garbage are looking for one and the people who say it's still amazing have one they'd like to trade you.

    IMO it's garbage and a drain pour now.

    Btw ISO!!!!!! ;) You know...for white elephant gift.

    Don't have a King Henry, not looking for one, and I wouldn't do it if I were you.

    Not a barleywine fan but...KH was one of the best beers I've ever had. Keep it.

    Had one courtesy of @WTKeene this past Saturday- if the trade was 2 x prop, AND 4 x BCBCS, it'd give me a moment of pause, but I still wouldn't do it... ISO!

    I am the exact opposite here while King Henry is
    amazing that is a lot of top 10 beer to give up.

    I have both. I wouldn't trade my KH for a prop, and I wouldn't trade my prop for a King Henry. So I guess that makes em about even. You might find a trader willing to do your deal. Either way's a win. Great beers. And anyone who says "don't give into the prop hype" is clearly just upset he isn't willing to ante up for one; It's a tasty beer, but it doesn't come cheap. Sorry to call you out evilcatfish; not trying to be a dick, but you seem to be one of the few people who aren't a fan.

    Not a fan of Prop either ;) Had it twice and made me not want to seek it out. KH on the other hand...would bang again for the price.
