    This is why the one bottle limit shouldn't really effect its trade value.

    Because one person has three of them? I'm not following your logic. Even if yourefragile has three of them that doesn't change the fact that there are only 160 of them in circulation (less by now already) and that most people only got one...and that the beer currently has an average > 4.9 ... wait what was your point?

    Its really not that hard to figure out. From the picture it becomes obvious thats 53.33 people went to the release and the each brought 2 robots dressed as people (think C3PO not R2D2). Therefore they all got 3 bottles of ann. They only need to drink one of those bottles (Robots cant drink) so 106.66 bottles should be avalible to trade for off the shelf locals.

    I guess I don't understand this post. I take trade bait as what I have that others want and I am willing to trade.

    Right now for me that would be BA Abominale and Kentucky Dark Star from Fremont.

    You drive a hard bargain, but I'll take a half drawn bottle of BT '09. I'm going to want at least 10 malts in there since it's only half. Send me your info if this works for you.
