    I just can't believe the guys at the brewery believed I was bringing back all of those bottles for my girlfriend, who died of cancer, came back to life, and whose only wish was to taste BA Abraxas. Didn't even need to see her in person. Suckers.

    I said jokingly one day that at some time, one person was going to buy the entire relapse of some beer release. It could happen with an army of mules. It could happen. The forums will be entertaining that day for sure.

    If you guys want to know who it is post a thread : "ISO: 100 bottles BA Abraxas FT:List". Whoever responds is your man. I think I met this guy at an event in MI, was showing off a pic of his 45 cases of BCBS. Pretty lame, I'm guessing he's selling beer on eBay.

    Why do so many people seemingly know who this guy is, but refuse to out his BA name?

    I am a firm believer that this attitude is why bad traders and trading practices happen with somewhat regularity.

    Are you kidding me? Wow. He is giving us lawyers a bad name. He's a lawyer for under a year and already trying to bully people by throwing out libel on a beer forum. I made a joke post about how he will "sue" you but I guess I wasn't that far off. Internet beer forums...it's serious stuff guys.

    Whats done is done guys. Unless some one has a time machine I think we can all lay this to rest. On a different note, Has anyone tried the beer yet? I had the original one just days before the BA release and was blown away. In my opinion this beer is really going to give Hunahpu a run for its money. What say YEE? Lets start a different thread for haters and people that want to fight. Time to get back to brass tacks ,BEER! I would love to get some feed back on this wonderful brew. If you have popped a bottle and fallen in love let us know about it!!!!!!!!!

    I had it on draft at the release. It lives up to the hype. It's tasty. Would I trade a Cable Car for it? No, but it is worth a decent trade value.

    I flew down from Chicago to STL. Was too late for the BA version. Ended up with a case of regular Abraxas. They said they had distribution here, other than Lakeview I've never seen Abraxas at Binnys or other. You guy seen it here in chi town?

    The best I can describe BA Abraxas is take the regular Abraxas and put it on steroids. You don't really get one thing coming through more than the other in the BA version, but as whole it's like everything was ramped up a notch. All the spices are fresh so with age this beer may change a bit, but it's damn good right now.

    I think there's plenty of cultural animosity towards lawyers already (God threatens to sue the Devil for accepting a nice engineer into Hell after Heaven was full. The Devil asks "Oh yeah? Where are you going to find a lawyer? Theyre all in Hell!")

    Probably no damage done to the public opinion, it's still shit.

    Good on the Kia Soul. Don't hate because he beat you to the punch. That's pretty damn awesome if you ask me. Naysayers gonna naysay. They will make more beer, get over yourselves.

    Most likely he/she doesn't have many friends and it shouldn't be an issue if the person is confortable with their actions.

    I'd make sure the guy with 60 copies was my friend! Or I would just buy directly from him and SKIP the line all together!

    Naw, I like sports cars personally. But if I did see this guy, I would wave some cash in his face until I got what I wanted and to hell with a line. "HEY KIA GUY I GOT MONEY!"
