    Why? Someone please help. I feel old. I assume the primary reason is money.

    If I right-click save-as the NFT image as a .jpg does it mean I've technically drank the beer?

    Make a check in on Untappd. That makes it real, right?

    Also, ISO: NFT Untappd check ins.

    No one has been able to explain NFTs well to me in a few sentences and this is one of the dumber cash grabs I've seen.

    Have you heard the tale of the emperor’s new clothes? It’s like the virtual version of that- you would get a certificate saying you own certain garments and then join with other people who own virtual garments to convince people of their value.

    Basically the NFT is an image with a unique code associated with it. The supposed value of NFTs is derived from this code, because obviously anyone can just view the picture. Goose Island is just going to use the code as a ticket to validate that you are in possession of a "real" GI NFT and give you things for it. It is essentially no different than paying 500 bucks for a GI membership card, with the exception that no one would pay 500 bucks for a membership card but maybe there is someone who will be on the hype train for this unique image.

    Guys, disconcerting development on the NFT front - they’re limiting initial individual purchase to $10,000.

    so much for living in a freedom-loving free market democracy. This false scarcity business is ridiculous. I didn’t work all these years to be ‘harrison bergeron’d’ into lowest-common-denominator /-tax-bracket mediocrity.

    I’m so mad. I’m going to boycott this whole thing.

    I have had no other interaction with Goose besides registering for, and not winning, Prop Day, King Henry Day, Rare Day, Whatever tf Day tickets.

    Just received an email that I am one of the "lucky few" who will receive a special link on Friday for early access to the NFT.

    Not gonna lie, would rather have gone to King Henry Day.

    Looks like I’m not special. So maybe I’m reading it wrong if I buy one I get a tap handle, barrel cover and glass, but if I get the reserve I get to buy prop day without playing the lottery. I’m not sure any of this is worth the internet cred.

    There's an NFT that you need to buy to get that information.

    We're all joking now but just wait til Black Friday and they pull some shit like a unique bottled BCBS variant that requires the NFT.

    ...And you see son, that's the story about how Revolution started to get all of Dad's money instead. And due to their incredibly reasonable prices, I actually have something to contribute to your college fund.

    I think we have to assume that Goose's involvement singlehandedly tanked the value of NFTs across the board, right?

    But Timmy's dad invested in bottles of Rare. He says someday each of those $70 installments will at least triple as the wealthy elite building beer cellars all scramble to catch up to those that were ahead of the curve like Timmy's super smart dad. The King Henry alone should cover a semester right?

    GI NFT, or any NFT, is about as big of a scam as that influencer who jars her own farts and sells them on-line.

    Goose Island still owes me $7.04 for beer I ordered from their Philly location when they had their firesale last fall (the one they had before they promptly closed without giving employees any notice, immediately after their Black Friday BCBS sales) and I ordered a four-pack, which they oversold on their website, didn't give me a refund... and then refused to return my emails.

    Think I can get that refund in the form of an NFT?

    It would be sad if it was some brewery that I respected acting like hilariously out-of-touch Boomers, but given that it's Goose Island it's just hilarious.

    If GI NfTs lose $100 in value a day they should be worthless by this time neztweek

    BA influencer farts - available at the next Prop Day as part of the vendor collab lineup.

    All these jokes aside...temporarily...does Josh have a formal take on all this? I'd be interested to read it.

    And then I think they are also aging some bcbs in barrels the influencer farted in.
