    Sorry man, I'm bringing plastic. I am more than happy to buy you a beer to make up for the delay I'll be causing by using credit card. Unless you're in line in front of me, in which case you can go straight to hell.

    WAIT, what are you signing us up for? You mean I actually have to drink the beer that I buy? You're killing my revenue stream, man.

    Wanna go, bad, but it's not likely in the beer budget, especially so close to Christmas. I already have the Bolt Cutter release coming up, and Right Brain's CEO Stout release. Dunno if I can squeeze in 4elf, since I'd want to buy a LOT of stuff. I'd also like to make it to JP's rare beer auction.

    *Sigh*

    So many beers, so little time/money. :(
     
  5. Yeah, sure they're like family...but what have they done for you lately. Spent 6mo in a bourbon barrel for you? HA! Not likely...

    Does anyone remember pricing on the following from last year:

    -4 Elf
    -BB Pt5
    -M29
    -BB M29

    I need to see if I can make this fit in my budget at all. :\

    Monster 29 in any version was not available last year. I think 4-packs of BB Pt5 were about $23-24.

    Who cares about 4Elf the beer?

    Also, I am very excited about M29 and BB M29.

    2011 prices
    BOURBON BBL PLEAD THE FIFTH - Bottle-$6.00 - 4 pk-$22.00 - Case - $130.00
    All I have at the mo.
     
  13. psykosis

    psykosis Savant (320) Indiana May 21, 2009

    Any idea what the cost was on the Monster 29 when it was last available?

    And I'd buy a 4 pack of the 4 elf. Really, I'd like to walk away with a 4 pack of 4E, 1-2 4 packs of BB Pt5, and 2-3 bottles of M29 and BB M29. I can't see doing that with less than $150, but I guess I need to wait and see what availability of the Monsters will be, and what pricing will be for any/all of these.

    Can we move Christmas to March please?

    Go for the party! Bottles should be a bonus. I wish that they would just tell people that they aren't doing them this year, then surprise the people that show up with some great stuff.

    I have Bolt Cutter and CEO Stout set up already. In december, there's 4Elf, Solstice, and JP's auction. None of which are less than 3 hours away (except CEO). I'm chasing a job in Detroit, which would make Solstice even harder to turn down.

    If I didn't love my marriage as much as I do, I'd throw caution to the wind and hit all of these up. I can always declare bankruptcy next year...

    The one time it was available, it was $44 for a growler.
     
  20. psykosis

    psykosis Savant (320) Indiana May 21, 2009

    Thanks. My kneejerk thought is regular Monster should be $18-$20 a bottle, BB closer to $25, assuming it's in 750's. Guess I'll wait and see how wrong I am (expecting copious amounts of wrongness).

    Why even make comments like this? People talking about camping out or getting there at midnight is what starts shit shows like KBS last year.

    The few times I've met Nate he seems like a joking guy and this is clearly a joke. I mean he's probably showing up at midnight but not all of us.....he's holding a spot for all the FIBs to cut in, We have a secret handshake (actually its a high five).

    jbck109 Savant (340) Michigan May 30, 2010

    I figured he was joking, but this gets others thinking that they have to be there way earlier than they do, then there are 500 people in line at 5am like KBS. Sorry, I just don't like what these events are becoming and I think a few small steps here could do wonders, as we are a large part of the attendance.
