    Thought this was a great beer and I have one left that I am debating drinking or trading. Given its never going to be made again was wondering if its really worth trading, the wants to got ratio would suggest no.

    hey man its a good beer, i say age it and drink it.

    people still find them sometimes in random places and usually real cheep (ive heard stories of folkd picking them up at a $2 a piece!) and sicne SNs distro is so good, it pretty much made it everywhere.

    that said this one is porbably worth the most of the set and could probably trade decently for people who missed the chance, some nice local limited stuff for sure.

    good luck!

    Good question that I'll add to. How about the entire set of 4?

    It would probably trade $4$ for other shelf beers.

    I've had about 7 or 8 full sets (still have four) and none of them traded for more than $4$ on some cool shelf beer (although I didn't ask for more than that) the biggest request I've gotten concerning these beers was for the stout

    Ya I figured. No big deal. I'd trade my set $4$ for Heady topper!!

    Honestly, it's not worth anything in trade. So why would you trade it away at $4$ when you can trade any shelf beer for what you would have gotten in a trade? Just drink it. It's good.
