    All Founder's members received an email stating that SKUs Me is finally going to be available for sale next week. At the moment, looks like each founder member is guaranteed 1 bottle. If any extra bottles are leftover, then the rest will be sold at the brewery next week. I wonder what the value on this would be in ISO/FT forum...

    So what is the value of a bottle from a brand new brewery who have been pouring for a month or so?

    Idk, it has the word "rare" in it and it's been in a barrel. It must be worth someone's cellar

    I've already been hit up by a number of people DESPERATE to get their hands on anything TRB puts out, and this was before the news about the SKUs me bottles...

    I would imagine that it will be harder to get because of the one bottle limit. I know that I will be drinking my one, so unless someone got a membership just to trade, I dont see a lot of these being traded. Also it has RARE in the name, so it has to be good, right?

    It sounds as if SKU bottles may make it to public sale based on the email. They said members get first dibs, but it's not member exclusive. Does sound like a very small batch either way.

    I emailed questions about this release. This first run is 500 bottles total.

    They mention how many members there are?

    My rough guess is not more than 300, judging by the number of people at the two Founders welcome events and the number of Founders growlers they had in the fridge for collection...

    Definitely trade your bottle. This hobby is all about speculation.

    Ah, and there was me thinking it was all about drinking the beers you love. So, if you happen to be in a position where you've had a certain beer several times before, you like it but you have the opportunity to trade it for a bottle of something different you'd love to try and will potentially love even more, you shouldn't do it? Makes sense.

    I wonder about a lot of things that I don't post on the interwebs.

    Naaa It's all about hyping beers, beers that don't need hyping, but hype them anyways. Thats what it is all about.

    Hype
    hype
    Hype
    and then hype some more, you know it makes sense.

    actually, it's worth $20, so$4$ seems reasonable, or if it is a case of "you've had a certain beer several times before" sounds like a perfect extra doesn't it.

    I'll bypass the hype thanks all the same. When I get extra's I'll go with the above philosophy an not the entitled approach to beer, think that's a better option.

    Who wants to trade? Reality or hype, pick a side...

    Easily purchased my lone bottle. Wish I could make it up there on Saturday to try for another. Good luck to those who do!

    That was too easy, I think this is negatively going to affect the trade value of the bottle.
