    Ever since I casually mentioned that I don't like sours and had been gifted a 750ml bottle of Batch 3 Supplication some years ago and said it had been in my Vinotemp wine keeper ever since, I've been getting informal offers for it and I'm trying to figure out what it's worth. Is there a good website or auction tracking site?

    Are you looking for beer or cash?

    It's worth what it originally cost. Someone with more money than sense will likely give you more but if it were me I would say $12-$15 would be all the more I would offer in trade value.

    Considering RR never bottled 750s of Supplication...

    I love that you chose this topic to be your first contribution to BA.

    It's not gold. Trade it for something you'd like based around what's been offered. Don't try to win.

    I completely skipped of the 750ml part. Maybe the fact that it isn't a standard 12oz threw him off?

    I'm pretty sure that's actually not true. There are 750s, from the same era as the 750s of Temptation, Consecration and Batch 3 Beat.

    Well, Drummermattie, you may be correct, since I'm not looking at the bottle, it could be Consecration. It is definitely a 750ml RR sour and definitely batch 3. I'm just trying to make sure I don't get taken advantage of - I've never sold or traded beer before. And why the snark?

    This community frowns upon selling beer on the black market. As far as trade value if it is a 750ml RR then it has some value. Pick a beer that you like buy can't get and post it here. We can tell you if it's feasible to obtain in a trade.

    From what I've heard they didn't actually bottle any Supplication in 750's, only the others.

    I could swear I've seen some, possible in the big over-priced City Beer cooler. But I could easily be wrong.

    I had some friends very insistently telling me Supplication was never in 750's, so I tend to think they're right.

    I found a picture of an old Redemption 750. It's possibly that's what I've seen in the City Beer cooler. http://biergotter.org/bif/BASS08/maximum12.jpg
