    I don't understand why you can't even talk about it. Someone simply asked a question and it got deleted.

    RIP: S.T.

    On the topic at hand...I'm still hoping to try Coco MC at some point, but being on the other side of the state doesn't make that so easy!

    I have heard Skull Tavern is getting a VERY special variant next weekend. Space Cake...regular mexican cake but made from the water on Mars and aged in Uranus.

    I think it is because beer advocate moderators and owners are permanently banned from certain locations that shall not be mentioned.

    I saw a guy listing one of the Pappy bottles for trade yesterday. I thought about messaging him about it but didn't. Wonder how he got it...

    westbrook supposedly allowed employees to purchase bottles of pappy and double chocolate.

    Absolutely true. Employees were allowed to purchase bottles so they are out there.

    Off-topic, but.... Lemon Coconut Weisse Weisse Baby just became one of my favorite new beers. That thing has such a great lemon coconut nose, and great flavors. Grab one/a lot if you see it in the stores!

    I have also seen several people ISO'ing Coconut Barrel Aged MC; just coming on here to confirm that the Coconut BA Cake was not bottled. Is that still true?

    It was bottled. 100%. You have to go back through other threads to see what happened with it not being released

    Well yes, I guess I should have stated was it re-bottled? I know it was bottled then was told it was unbottled due to sedimentation issues. But I was checking back to see if it was re-bottled or still draft only.

    It is draft only now. When they were dumping it a few employees were allowed to keep/buy a couple bottles for personal use instead of dumping. That is how some are out in the wild

    Coconut cake is back on tap and delicious. Double Chocolate and Pappy on sale for on-site consumption. $115 for Pappy, I think $75 for DC

    Wowzers, way more than I anticipated. I'm actually cool with it being on site consumption but thats pricey considering their entire supply is only on site consumption.

    Not gonna lie, I'd probably be a sucker at $75 for Pappy, but at these prices I'm likely out.

    If i drank a few flights I might be able to be talked in to buying a pappy to go at that price but not for on site.

    Rumor: Employees were able to buy a bottle, some employees have elected to sale or trade these bottles.

    Which would mean what, potentially a dozen bottles each or Pappy and DC MC made it out of the brewery, tops?

    That Grumpy Old Time at $30 is a steal. I can't believe no one jumped on that.

    LOL. I am amazed by the butthurt. If they only charged $30-$40, Pappy would last about 2 weeks. There is like 1 barrel worth of it in existence. This will keep it available for longer. This is a basic business concept. Supply and demand. If the demand for Pappy at $115 a bottle isn't there, the bottles won't sell. In the end, that will force the business to reduce prices. If there is a demand, all the bottles will sell. I think it is funny that people wouldn't bat an eye at trading $150 of beer to get this beer, but the brewery picing it around $100 is just the worst thing in the world.

    People complain about Goose Island selling Rare for $60. Westbrook's pricing of BAMC makes that look like a steal.

    It's supply and demand, sure. It's also just a dick move that makes people resent you.

    I think that this is an awesome way to do it. If people will pay it, which they will, why wouldn't the brewery set the prices high? Bummed I won't get down there until the 30th, I doubt Pappy will last until then.
