Prairie Bomb for this...

    I've posted a couple of ISO's for Bomb and have struck out. Am I way off base on this? Here's what I have been offering up (copy & paste below):

    I'm in search of as much Prairie Bomb as I can get. Ideally, I'd like to secure a case of Bomb in one trade, but I'm not opposed to doing two separate trades (minimum of 12 bottles at a time). Just let me know via message, what you'd want from the list and how many bottles you'd trade. I'm offering some sort of combo of these for it:

    BA Box of Chocolate (420 bottles produced)
    '12 BCBS (multiples)
    '13 BCBS (multiples)
    Black Note (multiples)
    Black Tuesday (multiples)
    '09 Boulevard BBQ
    Horse Feathers Rye (#12 of 480)

    So, Oklahoma BA's any insight on this? Thanks!!!

    You are not crazy at all. I would make that trade in a second if I had 12 bombs.

    The one issue you may have, though, is that bombs generally range from 6-8 bucks while things like Black Note and BCBS are cheaper. You could probably work that out with the Black Tuesday and such.

    Thanks for the response. Is Bomb not easily attainable in OK, TX and AR?

    Not in TX right now... I'm sure it should be somewhere in OK.

    Keep in mind that even if it's easy to attain, I personally wouldn't go out of my way to buy a case of it for the beers you have on hand, but that's just me.

    I'd try to get some smaller trades for it and I guess give some sort of ratio you would be willing to work with. Good luck!

    In OK? I would easily be able to get a case with one stop. But not TX.

    I would. And yeah, folks in OK should be able to grab a case if they want in on this trade.

    Haven't seen Bomb in AZ yet. Usually takes a little while for it to hit our shelves. Goes quick when it does. Was only able to grab 2 bottles last time. I will keep you in mind though if I can get my hands on a few.
     
  8. I've only been in AZ since last June, but when was Bomb! on the shelves here?

    DinoFight Aficionado (235) Arizona Jan 23, 2013

    It's been a while. Snagged 2 bottles early last year. Prairie goes quick here, when it eventually shows up on the shelves. Which isn't very often.
     
  10. Yeah, haven't seen any new bottles since last summer, when I think we got 'Merica?

    Yep, think that's the last Prairie I saw too. We get it, it just trickles in though.

    I'm busy with school atm or I'd do it in a heart beat..maybe if you can wait a week or two and I could figure out cost. I see too much bomb now almost. Fukc load of bible belt too (not as good)

    More power to ya.. I just ment as far as money went, I don't have the resources to buy ~100 bucks worth of beer for one trade.

    Assuming I don't get something worked out in the mean time, that's not a problem. The wife and I will be on vacation next week anyway.

    If no one else hooks you up, let me know. I don't have it on hand, but sure I'm can get it...

    It comes out in batches and get scooped up quickly.
     
  17. It's definitely not available by the case around here and I imagine that is true in many places. I would imagine that is a lot of the reason why you are having difficulty finding a trade partner.
     
  18. JeepCop

    JeepCop Aficionado (245) Kansas May 16, 2010

    Thanks for all of the responses... that definitely does shed some light on the availability. That being said, I've purchased 3 cases (72 bottles) in northwest AR via various friends and family traveling in the area. Thanks again!
     
  19. JeepCop

    JeepCop Aficionado (245) Kansas May 16, 2010

    Apparently a case in OK and TX is 12, whereas a case in AR is 24. Must be the state laws... :confused:

    Right. Can't sell singles in AR, so they have to sell 6 packs. 6x4 = 24
     
  21. JeepCop

    JeepCop Aficionado (245) Kansas May 16, 2010

    They actually sell them in 4 pks and no wax.
     
  22. wiingman

    wiingman Aficionado (215) Texas Aug 22, 2013

    Yes. The bottles can't fit in their 4 pack holders if they wax them.

    So you've purchased 72 and want 24 more? Houston Hoarders just got shown up!

    No kidding! Dropping a grand on Bomb! is pretty gangster.

    I know what I like... just wish they distro'd here.

    I can hook you up!
     
  29. BCBS is about a 5 to 6 dollar bottle of beer and black note is even more expensive sitting at 8 dollars a bottle. So that falls in the same range as prairie bomb price range.
