    Genuinely curious about the trade value of these two vs each other.

    Obviously huna was a brewery only release and cherry rye was distributed rather vastly.

    Saw quite a few ISO:FT with these two on each side of things.

    From those I spoke to, it sounds like the most common Huna trade has been for the cherry (which of course is the obvious conclusion from your comment). For those of us who stayed late at the Huna release, we could get basically as much as we could haul back to our vehicles (or, as in my case, as much as we could afford). So I guess that offsets the brewery only release thing and the thin albeit vast distribution of the cherry. And then Huna is incredible and although I haven't had the cherry I've heard it's amazing from those whose palates I trust, so it sounds like a trade both parties would be pleased with.

    I think this trade is becoming tougher by the day

    Einstein died before he could calculate the Huna-ChurryRye constant. I don't think you'll find an accurate estimate from the peanut gallery here.

    I can tell you taste wise Huna has it all over Cherry. Value is no longer dependent on taste nowadays, though, so this may not be relevant

    I've seen some ISO:FTs for these two beers (in both directions). This one all comes down to finding the right person.
