    No idea when this announced and I'm probably way late on this but what is the scoop on the Stranahan's Barrel Aged Yeti? These are 2 of my favorite things and I would love to get my hands on some. I'm sure it's brewery only or something of that nature but I'm still hopeful for the moment.

    The last batch was released in 2011

    It was good too... and some were infected.
    Around $30. Toss of an ISO. You can trade for it. It got small distribution around the country.

    The thread on BA made it seem like more than just some were infected.

    Bummer. Hopefully they'll try it again. Did it get any distribution beyond Denver in 2011?

    Honestly, you may want to avoid 2011, or trade older vintage.

    I bought 3/4 bottles and traded for a few more. Every single one was infected. I know of others who had it many times, uninfected, but its a crapshoot for sure, So just beware.

    I've had 5-6 bottles of the '11 and not one was infected, but I'm still scared about the couple more that I have since it is so random

    Honestly, just drop an ounce or shot of Stranahans into a regular Yeti. The BA Yeti is marginally different than the regular Yeti and 3x the cost.

    I know its been said, but I'll gladly give anyone out there .50 on the dollar for their bottles of "infected" ba yeti.

    I made this proposal before, nobody took mee up on it then either though.

    I had two bottles of BA yeti. One was sour/infected the other was great. I think from what I've seen/experienced bottles with #s in the 3000s are fine. The infected one I had was in the 8-900 range

    I just bought one yesterday, I believe? It was crazy good. It was also dated 2011 so I was alittle iffy as well....

    ^^^^ I've had it both ways many times and there is a big difference between plain Yeti with Stranahans and BA yeti
