    Hey Guys,

    I have a Bottle of KRE and I'm pretty sure I'll never drink it... Anyone know what it's trading for?

    If you've never had it, I would definitely recommend drinking it. If not, probably $30 in limited release beer.

    If you have not had it, why would you trade it?

    I've tried it before and thought it was a great beer, but my palate has changed a little and I'm not sure I wouldn't prefer something different right now. Thanks for the replies guys.

    I just traded for one and was wondering which is more desirable, the '07 7oz or the '12? or do they both trade around the same?

    While $30 of limited/brewery-only beers is a fair trade, I got my KRE for some "shelf" Alpines, seasonal, and Tired Hands growler (part of a bigger trade)...all $4$. What we both really got in the end was a new regular trading partner who have beers that each other want and willing to do gopickupforme. This was a turning point for me in how I value these limited beers that I have: great and repeat trade partners > rarity/bottle count.

    IMO (full disclosure, I have both) '07 > '12, but that's just me.

    While you're at it, don't forget the '04 which came in both the 6.3 oz. bottle and the fantastic mini-decanter bottle...
