    If you don't follow the Bad Trader threads, y'all should probably go take a peek. Especially if you've traded for a BBT recently. :grimacing:

    was going to mention that here as well. i know this is a SP / Shared “releases” thread but i’m thinking Cory might want to know about this, although i’m not exactly sure what he can really do about it at this point.

    I was one of the ones that got taken. I haven’t opened the bottle yet, but I should have known. Mine looks like it’s been thru a war, and the wax job isn’t up to SP standards.

    Worst thing is, I gave this clown positive feedback. I hope this is an isolated incident going forward and not a new trend. What a bummer...

    A good amount of both bottles available, sweet! Grabbed 2x Crusher, 1 RBdP. Haven't had batch #1 of RBdP, so I'm definitely excited to try batch 2!

    Same, now I need to somehow find a BBT b2 to complete the vertical that I have been holding on to. F me. Even worse, I was the first person to leave him positive feedback.

    This is so crazy. I told my girlfriend what was going on, and she specifically remembers BBT weekend at the cellar and some guy asking for an empty BBT bottle from one of the bartenders.

    For those that know about the counterfeit bottles, I can't post over there in that thread, don't have the privileges.

    I was just notified of this whole thing this afternoon.

    Just wanted to make a quick note that he has been banned from Side Project (he ironically had an order to pick up from us today via a proxy in which we cancelled and told the proxy why) and banned from making online purchases. We know that he uses multiple accounts and emails and will do what we can.

    As for the bottles, I am trying to acquire a fake one to pinpoint all of the telltale signs to help people identify if they have one. Quick note - if your cap has that indention in it - ITS FAKE.

    Please forward this post or link this post to those in the other thread - sorry I can't post it over there.

    Supposedly this guy interned at Perennial after I worked there. I sourced the wax and tape that Perennial still uses to this day - so he may be privy to its source to purchase. Our wax is more plastic based - not soft, chips when you remove the tape.

    Just wanted to let everyone know that we are looking into this and taking it very seriously. I take this as a direct attack on our integrity and quality - makes me sick to think of someone trying one of our stouts for the first time and being completely disgusted and completely unaware of this background info...

    Copied my post from the BT thread but felt like it should be posted in here too....

    This is wild but I wanted to share some pictures of my BBT b2. This bottle has been in my possession since picking it up at BBT release. The label has gotten a little wonky from storing it in a cooler during a move last year but as you can see, the wax isn't perfect and even has a little bit of a "bulb" effect going on. Mine has been in the fridge (aside from the few hours in the cooler during moving when the label got wet) since I picked it up.

    What about b2 is fake? It looks a little less waxed but I've had BBT bottles that look like that and they were infact BBT.

    The pull tab is long and where it joins the wax looks messy compared to all my other Side Project bottles. The wax doesn't have a bulb shape on the top of the bottle as all my other Side Project waxed bottles do. I could also cut the wax off and see the homebrew cap with the dimple on it as everyone else has seen in their bottles from Tristana123, but I have offered it to Cory as he requested a sample bottle. Hopefully you can see that in the pictures I have provided, but it is noticeable in person. The fact that every bottle Tristana123 provided has been a fake is also a good indication that it is also fake.

    focus on the shape of the cap/wax top. It’s pretty clear.

    let the speculation begin - case of white wax bottles just posted to their story, any idea what it is?

    Yeah, when blend 1 got released they said that b2 & b3 are in bottles. Of course b1 bottle conditioned for a year, and there was no indication of when b2 and b3 were bottled

    I’d be surprised if CdC b2 came out that quickly after b1. My guess is Tete or Oude la Table.
