    I trade all the time, send me bm to insure you can deliver my Surly as needed :wink: ......I had to settle for mule price from Rochester, and was glad to pay it. The beer is first class and in my opinion, Surly sour ales are world class.

    Now get on down here because our taproom has an incredible list of beers now, some very rare small batch beers too.

    Worth every penny....life's pleasures are valued much more to me than necessities, sometimes.

    Got to get down to TG. Just weighing the grief I will get, when I tell the better half I am heading out on a beer run, and return 8 hours later......

    Just noticed Merwin's has this for 1/btl limit for $21.99 and they deliver free in Metro area http://www.shopmerwins.com/surlypenta.html

    Ordered one myself, hope it makes it all the way out west in one piece.

    They had a pic of it yesterday night, not sure why it's gone now. Still says in stock.

    Candle holder? Who are you going to sacrifice when you light them up?

    I haven't decided what to do with it yet, too deep for a pencil holder for my desk. I suppose it could work well for candles, might look awesome.

    My girlfriend and I already use interesting bottles (at least that beer was good for something...) for candles and they work great without what you have done. I am wanting to get a glass cutter so I can actually make my own large candles. Pentagram should look pretty sweet.

    Still at least 6-8 (maybe more cases as well) @ Andy's Marketplace in Rochester for 25.99. At that price I'm waiting to try it on tap, but others may be interested.

    Not a chance. It's at plenty to go around status and everyone who I know that's tried it likes it.

    Unless your post was full of satirical sarcasm, which I am completely unable to detect on the damn Internet!

    Just means it is available and sitting around on the shelves, comment has nothing to do with quality as I am a big fan. Maybe I am using the term incorrectly?

    I should grab a few more tomorrow when I get paid. I wouldn't consider myself a sour beer guy but this stuff was delicious!

    I will definitely be picking up another bottle or two tomorrow as well. I had one in the cellar for aging but ended up drinking it last weekend.

    I shouldn't overgeneralize... there are a lot of midwest BA's (including you) that seem to be on the up and up.

    I guess I'm just tired of all the "it'll be ready when it's ready" jokes, etc.

    It sounds like you are looking for the "Help Wanted" forum. Its just above the Geographical forums. Good luck!
