    I have a guy at my local bar that wants to trade me a R&D Golden Ale. We are well acquainted so basically he told me to bring whatever, but I don't want to short him and look like an asshole. Tried to research but found absolutely nothing on these. Does anyone have insight?

    I see it offered for sale at $50 with no takers for over a week. So probably less than that!

    Not really tradeable. I had several last year, no takers at various offers. It was good last year, it has to be on it's way down now. Bring something nice and drink it with him.

    I've had two in the past year and i thought it's never tasted better. Very dry and funky. Wish I still had a bunch.
