    That's a nice trade, but still a trade.

    I suspect you'll find somebody that will do that, especially if the goodies are of the 3 Floyd or Goose Island variety.

    The webpage is mocking me. Alternates between sold out and having it. Always reverts to sold out when I try to buy.

    Hmmm. Maybe so. I guess the next logical step is to tell me to take it to the trading forum. **slaps own wrist**

    I think he just wanted an excuse to use the word "grumbler".

    Are you surprised at my tears sir? Strong men also cry, strong, men, also, cry (when they miss out on BA Kopi SS).

    Its like you can't even take a rushed 30 minute lunch anymore when a website crashes at launch.

    I'm about to launch my lunch, ugh.

    Keep trying. I sat down at my desk around 12:45 and was able to get 3 BA KL at around 12:52 after trying to add to cart 5 or 6 times.

    If you missed out keep refreshing. They keep sporadically reappearing, although almost every time they are no longer available by the time you add them to your cart.

    Wow, the quickness with which these are flooding the trade forum is demonstrative of how much the trade value of bruery and other Cali beers has declined. We are starved for trade bait, apparently.

    When comparable beers first hit the Midwest, you rarely see them offered up for trade, their owners preferring to coyly bat their eyelashes at suitors, waiting for the finest and richest gent to strut along.

    Disagree - all the BCBS and variants went up instantly, so did 15, so did many other.

    You're doing it wrong. All midwest traders are hoarding assholes trying to maximize their "trade value". Everyone knows that.

    Since I was on at the right time and I missed out on this due to a clitch with debit cards can I start a bitch and complaining thread about how the Alesmith releases suck and this is BS and all that? I am not sure how this works still.

    Awesome! Thanks for this blessing. Haha. Oh well I missed out on some poop stout. Maybe next time; I was really hoping to get one for my target in the BA BIF. But I guess the beer gods didn't make this work out.

    Considering nobody trading bottles has tried the beer yet it's absurd how fast they want to unload them. It could be the best beer ever but I don't give a fuck. I don't know what I'm trading but I have to trade these ASAP! Clock is ticking!

    When CW 15 first dropped, the ratio of FTs to ISOs had to be 1:10 (I'm guessing, obviously, but the disparity was incredible and hasn't actually improved much - I've put out an ad for statisticians to verify the exact numbers). I recall a similar, though less pronounced phenomenon for cherry rye but I was really only speaking of relatively limited brewery-only releases anyhow.

    In comparison, just look at how many FTs for BA Kopi are out there vs ISOs for BA Kopi. The difference is stark (and I'm not suggesting there's anything wrong with it, just making an observation).

    Well, the midwest has successfully convinced the West that their 12,000 bottle releases like Rare etc are walez then.

    Why is everyone FTing their bottles? It might be really delicious, and you don't even have to pay for shipping! Win(wallet), win(mouth)? I must be missing something!
