    ok '13

    Murda'd Out sat for a fucking month last year before it sold out. Funny how people think it was some hot commodity.

    While true, people do tend to forget it was the most expensive beer (besides BADL) that they've ever put out, and no one had ever had it. Asking $50 for a beer at that time was kind of crazy and people were hesitant to spend it. Many of us, once we had it, went back for more several times. Its a damn amazing beer.

    When they recently pulled out all their cellared beers for sale, I do not know how many Murda'ds were available but they were all gone that day.

    If they were to make it again, you know damn well itd be gone in days.

    Plus, Baller Stout was widely regarded as... subpar, to say the least. So, there wasn't a whole lot of excitement for BA Baller :wink:

    Its not BA baller stout, its each of the beers used to make baller stout barrel aged seperately, and then blended.

    Subpar? I enjoyed baller stout, think I still have a bottle or two left but wouldnt mind a few more if your looking to get rid of some.

    Yeah, I know the origins of it. When it released, people talked about it as BA Baller Stout. In fact, the first post in the thread about its release refers to it as such... and everyone then had the same debate over that term back then :stuck_out_tongue:

    Oh how things change with a bit of time. Rare sat on the shelf for 6 months. Are you telling me that it wouldnt sell immediately if a liquor store put a dozen bottles on the shelf?

    Have any of the latest BA releases really been above the rest? Definitely only opinions but the majority of people I have heard from say the orange peel alpha klaus was dissappointing.

    I heard Prickly Pear was awesome, but I have not tried it.

    Haven't cracked my Cassis (black currants) yet.

    I can vouch for the blue wax on Behemoth this year as well as teku glasses being back in stock.

    Both sound good, hope u enjoy the black currant. Been a little bit since I made the trip out, are they filling growlers again yet? Seems like there used to be info on the tap/carryout list and now I don't see anything.

    Thanks. I haven't heard or seen anything about growlers since the brewhouse upgrades. I'll ask next time I'm there.

    Growlers are too slow to keep that massive line flowing!

    I wish they still did it. Maybe have a side tap for just growler-fills like half acre.

    I don't know I have always seen the station but nobody ever uses it. I can not see why they wouldn't it is just more profit for them. @GHphoto
