    Had a sip of this at Ccb Saturday and thought it was incredible. Would huna or multiple huna get this done or am I very far off?

    Multiple possibly. But it's going for quite a bit and I don't see it slowing down any. People love it and there's really low bottle count. That said you can try with multiple huna it's at least worth a shot. Question is, how many huna would it take you to get rid of a BA abraxas?

    1 Hunahpus should get the job done. If it doesn't work, create another post until it happens.

    I doubt one hunaphu will get it done as bottle counts are WAY OFF but ya never know i guess. I am sure you'll have to add to the hunaphu

    Yea I couldn't believe that they were only charging $6 when I cashed out. And it was soooooo good!
  9. Real Hunahpu should go 1:1 for BA fake Hunahpu

    Too much. I'm going to wait until production increases and try again next year...or just drink a ton at FoBAB.

    Also, thanks for flushing out the BA Abraxas guys AbeCat.

    BA Abraxas is commanding high value and Huna is sort of flooded right now (I just saw someone ISO Zombie Dust x12 for a Huna, take that for what it's worth).

    I've had BA Abraxas and I must say it would take a lot to get my one bottle. Much more than 1 Huna.

  18. I'm gonna make this simple as possible. Ready for this Brain Buster?....

    *1 Hunahpu will get you 1 Abraxas.
    *1 BA Hunahpu will get you 1 BA Abraxas.

    I on the other hand traded a KH for a BA Abraxas 1:1. Both sides were happy.

    Considering bottle counts on almost all BA Huna is around ~100, shouldn't they fetch 5 BA Abraxas? Since that's what's most important here, right?

    I wouldn't say it's directly proportional to availability. IMO, x2 BA Abraxas should land 1 BA Huna.
  21. I would have to agree with you on this one. Gonna have to add another bottle of BA Abraxas atleast. Maybe even another decent bottle. End result is the same. You get your BS Abraxas and maybe more.
  22. I got ba behemoth 1:1, pretty generous, they will be getting some nice ba extras

    this was my strategy.. FoBAB is unlike any beer festival I've ever been to
  24. I would not go 1 4 1 with regular huna. Just because regular huna is not that great.


    Heeeeyyyy ohhhhhhh

    Hunahpu's is basically as rare as Dark Lord now - Except for the added bonus that it's delicious and you don't have to pay $30 for the right to stand in line to actually pay for your allotment. Oh, and case limit instead of "4ish" (which also means a case for some people).

    Would you trade BA Abraxas for Dark Lord? ;)

  26. I might if Dark Lord tasted like Hunahpu's. If someone wanted a six pack of sam adams for their dark lord I wouldnt do it.

    Problem is that few people have it that are active on BA and most that do acquired it to drink and not trade. I've drank 3 or 4, gave one to a friend for CFH, and am drinking the others soon. I imagine you could land it with a leon-plus or CCOaH easier than Hunahpus
  30. A Leon plus...LOL!? The amount of greed while trying to maximize the trade value of these limited release beers, is utterly ridiculous. Carry on.

  36. I doubt anyone would make this trade, bcbs is/was on shelves for too long, and its distributed here regularly

    Ask my trading partners, I have traded several bottles. They are traded, for the right stuff. It's not impossible but there aren't a lot floating around.
