    A buddy picked me up a couple of the 500Ml growlers....
    Can anyone tell me how much these were selling for? Also was the # of bottles released published?

    Thanks for any help.

    I think they were $20 and somewhere between 300-500 growlers.

    Then again I could be very mistaken on the numbahs.

    Doesn't your buddy know how much he paid? Just teasing; it was $20/500ml growler. They released 3 per person, although some people ended up with more. Sooooo good.

    After everyone that was in line got their bottles, they had 12 cases for those who got back in line to purchase more. There wasn't a limit on the second go around.

    The wife and I got 3 each, we didn't didn't line up for the second go. But here is something nice, some of our friends drove up from fort lauderdale and due to a medical emergency they got on the road pretty late. By the the time they got to pegs they were already sold out, we walked up to the back where the line started and told Doug their situation and he was awesome enough to give them their share from his reserve.

    Out of curiosity, not trying to be a dick, why is this posted in Southwest? Is there another producer of RareR besides Peg's in Gulfport?

    Because Todd moved it there. I posted in the "Beer Talk" forum and it was moved.

    Bring it to Houston and share with me. :)

    Hope you enjoy it, I've heard wonderful things but don't have a regular FL trading partner and not enough rare stuff to pull one with a new trader.

    Cheers!
