They sell signs now?
Anyone else notice a pattern? Understandably, the cost to make a Wheat beer is less than the cost to make a Stout or Barleywine, etc., but the price differences (IMHO) seem to correlate with the quality of the beer being produced (with some potential exceptions) - almost as if the prices are an indication of the quality of the beer - to wit:
Calumet Queen - $5
Moloko - $8
Munsterfest - $8
Dreadnaught - $10
Risgoop - $15
Live a Rich Life / Shark Pants - $15
Barrel Aged Gumballhead with Peaches (Bully Guppy) - $20
Barrel Aged Moloko / Robert the Bruce, etc. - $35
Barrel Aged Dark Lord - $50
If this holds true, I can't wait to get my hands on a $300/bottle FFF BA beer!
You mean, Vanilla Dark Lord Aged in Goose Island PvW (Rare) Barrels?
For $300 this weekend only, treat yourself to an hour long barrel sensory deprivation session courtesy FFF.
Nah, I'm thinking Jinx Proof aged in used root beer barrels.
Yep, $20 for that one. They have another old school one that says "It's not normal" but not sure on the cost.
This is still available if anyone is still daring to try it...
I broke down and got one today. Can't wait for FFF Nail Polish Remover vol. 2! Or maybe I should try it first?
go for it! I'm really curious to see what people actually think of this!
I believe I may be saving it for a tasting that will be happening soon.
Cracking one of mine tomorrow, after the expo of course.
This. This right here. I mean it REALLY tastes like nail polish remover.
are they new? they're by the to go bottles i assume?
This is some expensive nail-polish remover:
Lil late there Bro
how much was that? I'm thinking about stopping by this weekend
hipsters be patrollin.
Has anyone that has bought Battle Priest, Bully Guppy, or any other high priced terrible beer complained at FFF's the next time they went in?
I am not one to say much about anything especially complaining about something purchased, for the most part. But, if I dropped $35 for a drain pour I would bitch for sure. Did this with Brandy AS, and Lost Abbey sent me to awesome stemware glasses.
I would be amazed if FFF would give you even an apology, let alone a refund or free swag. They must know how these beers taste when they release them.
Go with the case of Gumballhead or Zombie Dust for $35.
That's quality beer at very nice prices!
My friends have complained about Battle Priest, their failure to bottle date, and a bad experience they had at the pub. They wrote very simple "here is what happened and why I was disappointed" messages. Never heard a word back. Like I've said a thousand times, FFF's customer service is fucking non-existent.
To quote Futurama:
"Our policy is: If for any reason you're not completely satisfied, I hate you."
Well it could be an isolated incident, as I am sure they get tons of emails and perhaps miss a few, or forget to back to someone. It would be interesting to see what an in person complaint would accomplish. Likely nothing, and their stance on customer service does seem to be that the customer should be servicing them, but I still won't pass too much judgement on an unanswered email.
Maybe I wasnt clear. it was 3 unanswered emails spanning a couple of years IIRC
Just got back from FFF.
Picked up some cases to go.
Bully Guppy was gone as of yesterday.
I always figured BA Dark Lord was twice the beer Black Tuesday was, 5 times the beer Bourbon County or KBS was, and on par with Rare. At least that's what they seem to think...or the $$$ amount seems to imply. $50. You can get nearly 2 cases of Zombie Dust for that. I can get 5L of Ephraim for that at Hill Farmstead. I can rattle off tons of superior beer that I can get in greater volume at a lower $ figure. Just ridiculous. Three Fools.
Yes. It's a rant. I hate FFF. It's ok that others don't. I'm allowed to disagree with people and tend to on a lot of issues. Carry on.
baller stout is 30 so that means it taste twice as good as DL right?
Just about anything is twice as good as Dark Lord.
Did they have Zombie Dust to go? Thinking of making my maiden voyage to FFF this week. Their website hasn't been updated in a couple days.
Do they literally throw any beer in barrels? Jesus...
I wonder where humanity would be if people only did what was guaranteed to succeed...
i'd say that about new dark lord, but regular old '08 is among my favourite beers of all time. too bad i probably won't get to drink it again
isn't it the same recipe?
If only it was that simple.
Futurama is such an underrated show. my favorite quote: (also how I imagine Dark Lord is Created)
About a year ago I left FFF with two growlers of Zombie Dust. Upon returning to my house I realized that one of them had exploded in my back seat. I called the next day to explain what happened. They informed me that they had ran out of ZD but would call me when it returned and replace my growler. About 5 days later I received a voicemail to come pick up my growler. Not only did they give me another growler, they let me pick out a bomber of my choice on the house. I have never had a problem there either so I'm going to have to go ahead and disagree with non existent customer service. Also, if people don't want to pay $20 for what some describe as nail polish remover, here is a thought; don't buy it...
someone has to be the first to try it, and not everyone on the planet posts on BA. if it tastes as bad as everyone is saying it does, why the fuck did three floyds release it in the first place? there is no way they could have missed this.
Cause they know people will buy it?
what if it's a giant scheme to throw people off with their limited releases. It's like Russian roulette you could get a great beer or it could just be crap.
