    This sucks for me. When I come home from Chicago, sometimes I stop to pick up a few cases for my friends. 6 was usually the perfect amount.

    To be fair, I can't fault a guy that wants to trade some Zombie Dust for some Pliny the Elder or Heady Topper (we're agreed that everything else on his ISO is pretty ridiculous). As much as some people want to complain, there's at the very least 3 bottle shops I could walk into tomorrow and buy a fresh 6er of Zombie Dust in Chicago. It's not that scarce, you just have to know where to look.

    I almost always have a 6er of Zombie Dust in my fridge, and drink about 4 per week. Several times per year I'll feel like mixing it up and send a 6er along for a 4pack of Heady Topper...what's wrong with that?

    Nothing... That's besides his point, which is already a tangent to this thread.

    Fwiw, I'd bet more than one of those bottle shops didn't get that ZD through distro.

    It has something to do with it tasting like citrus juice and causing inebriation. :D

    It aint what youd call a balanced beer, thats for sure.
    I do like how its taken attention away from Alpha King which I think is an absolutely phenomenal beer.

    Well that's the point of the limit. I'm not sure how many people you are buying for, but everyone will have to make do with a sixer or two instead of a case. That way more people can have the opportunity to enjoy it. Many may not get the amount they want, but most will at least get some.

    It's the best standard beer FFF makes, by far (Alpha King.)

    Man this is ridiculous, I swear before they implemented this case limit the beer was more available at the brewpub. I'm talking before the summer time, before the start of June. I would go to FFF at least twice a month from the start of this year and they always had cases of ZD and GBH. It seems like they have cut production on the beer or the case limit made people go crazy and they are picking up their 2 case limit everyday. /rant

    "but I'm just helping out another beer fan that doesn't have access. When I buy three of everything I'm just being a noble guy helping out the community at large. They should erect a statue of me at dark lord day because I'm such a helping guy. I mean, granted I'm hurting my own local community of people I talk too and know but I get to use this beer as a commodity to trade up and over for crazy hyped things. Who buys beer to drink, I buy beer to trade." - avg BA lurker

    Has anyone actually confirmed if case limits are still 2 cases or now just 1 case?

    Did I miss it in this thread? Has anoyne talked about case prices going up? Didn't it used to be $35/case and now the FFF site is showing $40 for cases and $10 for a six pack. so......no more slight discount for buying a case.

    Come on, it's so much easier to search for information by having all these threads up. I mean, when is the last time you've seen a 'What can I expect at FFF?' or 'What is on tap at FFF?' thread or question. Like, never, or at least, not for a while, you guys.

    If only there were a way to somehow create a thread that had answers to a bunch of common questions and make it stay on the first page. Like, if it were sticky or pinned there or something...

    Sorry, I don't know how long it will last, but with the 2 case limit, maybe their stock will last longer....plus the new production equipment is supposed to help, I think your chances are good.

    By the way, you can buy 2 cases of 12 oz beer + bombers....I also picked up 2 urine troubles.
