    A lot of beer....

    A buddy and I tried several times to land one it finally took a 14 Huna, and 12 and 13 Zhukov to get it done. All I can say is YES, it was worth it...

    I traded an Oso Scarlett Letter for an Alpine Great, but it was also apart of a massive trade deal were both parties send 12 pack wine shippers. So keep in mind it wasnt necessarily a 1:1 situation for the bottle.

    Similarly rare, similarly desirable beer?

    Seriously, that's always the answer.

    I traded a Matt for one.

    I got mine from a great trading friend. It is still amazing and worth what it commands. I would love more

    Whoa - that seems like you got a great deal!

    I'm also in the Matt for Great camp.

    Great question - do all bottles have the gold foil?

    iirc, only the 375ml bottles have gold foil ('05 batch), the newest batch of 12 ozers does not.

    That is correct. As far as what it takes to land one, you just have to come across the right person. I recently traded one away as part of a trade for some Avery BA brews. I have traded a few for beers that might wife and I really wanted to enjoy so it wasn't about rarity for rarity or anything like that. It's definitely a great beer. Hope you can find one!
