    Central Waters BBA stout is soo amazing. We got about 15 cases last year but they cut distro to NY bigtime and now it's a 2 case allocation!!! I got more BCBS than that at my store!! We loved CW year round and no love this year??? Makes me sad.

    Great answers. Especially the Heavy Seas. I am always surprised they don't get more love. Pretty much what I had to offer other than New Hollands Dragons Milk. Year round for $12/ 4 pack give or take

    You should be able to find BA BORIS from Hoppin' Frog in your area. It's around $15 for a bomber.

    Both of those are on the high end over here. I'd venture to say the average price of barrel-aged beers where I am is around $15 for a 22oz bomber, so $24 for a 500ml bottle isn't exactly affordable.

    Firestone Vintage is about $15-$20, BA Old Rasputin $20-$25. Here in the Bay Area
    I think that's pretty affortable for a good BA beer. But I'm willing to bet its because of where
    I'm from either a bigger selection or just condition to pay higher prices lol Cheers.

    Extremely underrated sure wish I could get it in California. In complete agreement with BIG BAD BAPTIST!!!!!
    I drink BBB when I want a world class beer without opening up the top shelf stuff in my cellar.
    Also, its not a BA stout but Brooklyn Black Chocolate Stout is an excellent beer.

    I'd vote bug bad baptist cus it's exceptional. But it's not super easy to get. It doesn't get the hype it deserves but its not like it's in huge quantities or year round.....
    With that said pretty much anything that clown shoes has ever put in a barrel has been pretty damn good and there's usually some ba thing from them on a shelf

    I guess at almost $30 a 4-pack, those two aren't affordable at all. But they are pretty easily available/obtainable.

    I wouldn't venture to say it has anything to do with selection size, given the state I live in, but I suppose my perspective on their prices would be different if beer prices in general were higher than they are over here.
