    I know it's not out yet, but I'm looking to trade for an entire case of GI's bourbon county barleywine (if I can't enough to buy). So, if I were to throw a box together of say 1 black tuesday 11, 1 chocolate rain 12, 1 king henry, and a dark lord vertical of 10-12, does that sound like enough to get it done? I know this is all speculation as none of us know yet how difficult this will be to get or if it will be any good (it's goose island bourbon county line, so i'm sure it will be fantastic), or if this is even feasible, but I would appreciate your thoughts.

    I can say with 100% confidence that your offer might get it done.

    We don't know the release date, price point, availability, or desirability of Goose Island Bourbon County Barleywine. We have no real idea of the desirability or relative value of your beers when/if this beer is released in bottles.

    My feedback: That's just too many unknowns. You might as well ask the Magic 8-Ball:

    Ironically, you're not helping your case by posting this, particularly so far in advance of its release. People see stuff like this and run wild with it, and suddenly everybody will be hoarding it and holding out for Chocolate Rain because "they saw it got done".

    Much better off just posting a quiet ISO and working out the details privately...

    I can absolutely guarantee that no one who answers this does so with any degree of prescience.

    I would trade with you but I made it a point, couple years back, never to trade with you so long as that was your avatar :)

    So you're asking the trade community to set the price for you? That's not enough. I want MOAR!

    I am 100% positive that this beer will likely come out some time in the future (probably 2013 or 14), it will likely be priced similarly to BCBS 4pks plus or minus $10, there will probably not be enough, and many people will desire it.

    I don't trust brewers and their timelines.

    I count two "likelys" and a "probably". It is my 100% opinion that there is some margin for error in there.
