    They are still thinking it over. It'll be between $250-$300.

    "3) Do not pretend for a moment that most, if not all, of you would have turned down the chance to buy a case of BCBS variants if offered the chance."

    Not me, I don't understand why people hoard this shit. On the other hand, I have no issue with people buying by the case IF the store has the stock on hand to do so (and is not doing so by mistake).

    Justifying bad-faith behavior with "other people do other shitty shit" also doesn't sit very well with me, unless you know for a fact you're doing something shitty TO someone who is doing said shitty shit (I'm vindictive).

    Either way though, whatever. The story is history by now.

    And I guarantee he went right back to LP Binnys to get even more, and cut in line to get his original spot back.

    Are there? Is there? Are those from a separate batch than all the bottles?

    I can be wrong, I've just seen nothing to this effect. Yet to see someone say they have had a "non-infected" 2015 Prop, only "pre-infection" '15 Prop.

    If they are valuing it at $30 i would temper your excitement but a 4th bottle is always cool

    Has GI announced MSRP for bottles? A local store in NYC, posted their prices, and I was curious on the comparison.

    I must have mis-read your post, my apologies.

    Little confused what you meant by not bottling, though. Prop 15 was definitely bottled.

    Fair enough, I have no idea what the hell that part meant either. Simpler - they had it on draft on November 17, 2016 at GI Taproom.



    EDIT: And I personally confirm, it was not infected :slight_smile:

    Why are you the way that you are... I’m not expecting OG rare, but an extra 18 variant would be pretty sweet

    my guess would be, having bought vintage bottles from GI Fulton in the past, that their pricing would be higher than 30 for any of those (except maybe 2017 coffee).

    Random fact, but Night Stalker is actually not the base for BCBS. My source is the GI Bourbon County brewer who presented and gave a tour at Life of a Barrel event. Someone specifically asked him whether Night Stalker was base of Bourbon County, and he said no. He said it's 'kinda, sorta, but not really' similar recipe to the base stout. I tried the base... it was very sweet and hoppy bitter.

    I heard years ago that the base beer had been released a time or two on its' own...and that it's called Cook County Stout.

    Agreed and I've taken this same "life of a barrel" course and to be honest the base BCBS didn't taste that far off from Night Stalker.

    I thought (meaning I read here) someone said that Big John was closer to BCBS?

    I also haven't had Nightstalker in like 5 years, so I have no idea how close to BCBS it is/was.

    Your right. Night stalker is not the base for BCS however Cook Country stout is the base for both.

    BCS - BBA CCS
    NS - DH CCS
    BJ - Cacao Nib CCS

    Ah I may have misread the comment initially, but yes, my understanding is the base for each is the same.

    They are all the same base beer. Night Stalker, Big John, and Bourbon County are all Cook County Stout with different treatments because supposedly CCS is pretty gross. Its a massive beer built for doing other things with it.

    Night Stalker is Dry Hopped CCS
    Big John is CCS with Cacao Nibs but no barrel
    Bourbon County is BBA CCS

    Prop 18 is essentially Double Chocolate BBA Big John

    That's high even for NY. I recall someone mentioning paying $18 for Coffee last year. Those are all (obviously) above that.

    I don't believe GI publicly shares SRPs on these. I don't recall seeing any mention of it in the past anyway. The first prices we see around here are typically when Binny's announces their prices.

    Still, even if you estimate it(and he's missing Prop from the list) it comes out right around $250 or so. Which is what most estimated for the full set. That's around what I figured it would be.
