    Let's call it what it is. Pappy is the most purchased beverage at prices exponentially higher than retail. Stop fucking buying it, people.

    It's definitely not better than 12 bottles of Stone Xocoveza. Heck. I'd take a draft pour of the Xocoveza over Abraxas, even if they were the same price.

    This. For those of us that like a little bit of pepper, but not big heat, Xocoveza is more enjoyable than abraxes.

    BA GBS at TW Alexandria. They got 10 cases. Limited to one per, because, unlike with their single case of Abraxas, they perceive this to be scarce and in demand.

    definitely true. but it is still good and in limited supply, so you pay extra to get it.

    Going to be in VA next week for work. Is Regular GBS still pretty easy to find? Going to be around the Reston area.

    All the Trader Joes i've been to in the DC/VA area seem to have gotten pallets of regular GBS--it should still be around. $9.99

    Old Line, in College Park, has Abraxas for the extremely desperate. $29.99, limit 1, and you must buy 2 other Perennial beers.

    It did last year so I don't see why it wouldn't again this year.

    Thanks! I got a bottle and it looked like they had two boxes. $25 each.

    That's some BS. I like the folks at Old Line and I've found some gems there from time to time but BS like that really makes consider if I should stop going there.

    Bourbon GBS at TJoes in Reston as well. Maybe two cases left. $14 per. Bunch of guys were snagging multiples while I was in there.

    Any limit on the Bourbon GBS at TJ's? Doesn't look like it based on the sign.
     
  29. JBiersky

    JBiersky Initiate (48) May 23, 2014 Virginia

    No limits at TJ's on BA GBS.

    Any Abraxas hanging around near Fairfax?

    just left TJ's Clarendon. No limits and the stacks look to be at about half of what they were in the picture.

    With people walking out with multiple cases, I'd say those odds are slim. Isn't this beer like 1 or 2 a person at the brewery?

    On an unrelated note, Dominion had some Terrapin Tiramisu-Hoo. Not much though, and that is 1 bottle per.

    I heard it was 8 bottles/person at the brewery.

    Has it got that kind of trade value?

    it didn't last year.

    I think it would have even less this year with the increase in quantity.
     
  37. nimbleprop

    nimbleprop Initiate (131) Apr 4, 2008 District of Columbia

    Maybe 20 or 30 will get you that coveted bottle of Pappy?

    This is going back a bit, but I couldn't agree more with Blue Monday. Mouthfeel is a bit too thin and the fruit notes in the coffee take away from it. Hopefully it mellows out some with time.

    SlothB77 Devotee (495) Dec 28, 2012 Virginia

    trade value is ok. i got some good stuff for it last year - some new glarus, even a toppling goliath. i don't think it will fetch as well this year. christmas morning, kentucky christmas morning and apple brady gbs will all have much higher trade value, though.
