    Can anyone speak to the value of FOb4? For example, if a $24 4/pack of beer A was offered in return for 1 bottle of FOb4, is that a fair trade to both sides?

    Well you detailed one part of the trade..let's get more specific on the other side

    What is the 4 pack? That will help the thread give you advice

    I just snagged one the other day at K&L for 163.86 OTD. They went super fast though.

    Yeah the few times I've visited Seattle I recall those state owned liquor stores and the liquor in general costing more than placed like CA

    Thanks for this insightful info. I had no idea the back story with the 3 Matts and Toronado.

    Not too far off, maybe a 5th can at worst. FOb5 can be obtained on shelves, and FOb4 had a good amount too.

    Would Maman '19 + Maman '18 + Blue Ridge land a 4R SmBLE '19 (750 ml)? I'd be on the beer side.

    Hoping to land a Black Agnes + Heart of Darkness in one trade. I am offering SP floue floue b2 + Fuzzyb4. Told I was off since HoD is a $100 bottle?!

    What was Black Agnes retail? Does HoD trade for over retail? All I know is they are highly rated on untapped so I'd like to try them.

    Any tips?

    Black Agnes is $32 for a 375ml. I think you should be able to get this easily at a $4$ trade

    does seem the latest 375ml batch of HoD does trade at its cost of $180.

    Schramm's also ships to a lot of states, if you would rather wait and just purchase it yourself.

    I think that is overkill. Really a Maman + blue ridge should get it done...But 'bourbon tax' seems to be on the rise. For reference, they have been going for about 300 locally - which is about 50 over retail cost in Washington

    From a secondary perspective, it’s over - I agree. Retail at 4R drop was around $150. It’s just a matter of finding someone who wants to give up their SMBLE. I have had all the liquids in the trade and its a tough call, which means it’s a pretty good offer. Retail matches up and secondary is ++. Good luck!

    the majority of the j wake wakefest bottles are pretty much cost except the BA big poppas. Large quantities, QC issues, took a while to sell out, some even got distro

    How about the most recent Anabasis and BA CSV for 2 Green Assassin? Does the Assassin need to add? How much?

    Thanks

    Seems pretty straight forward 2:2 however based on the fact you would have needed to “win” 2 sets in order to get 2 green assassins maybe the other side would need to add if anything. Just my opinion
     
  23. jheimbigner

    jheimbigner Defender (698) Apr 18, 2015 Washington

    Didn't two base(green wax) assassins come with the set?

    I think the assassin side would have to add a plus, something around an MD b6
     
  24. Rustytacos

    Rustytacos Aspirant (224) Mar 19, 2018 California

    You’re right, I stand corrected. The set did come with 2 regular assassins and yes the assassin would need a plus.

    Been out of the trade game for awhile so I’m a bit rusty on trade value. Would BCS 2 year reserve + Prop 19 be in the ballpark for a Midnight Still?

    I think that would close 2:1 - maybe a small plus on the MS side to even out the cost

    I have a few aged Sierra Nevada Big Foot, very aged. (2)2011 and (3)2015. I have them stored in the same place and pretty much never have moved them. I opened one of the 2011 around December and it was well carbonated, no off taste, and simply great.

    Do these have value or way to niche?

    I'll just drink them myself at some point if they don't, so I'd need them to bring in something difficult to find to make it worth giving any up, 5-10 years of good aging is not an easy find.

    Was going to look for something like Westvleteren 12, Pliny Young, a rarer Cantillon etc.. Need some perspective here, I think these are worth such asks, but maybe I've lost it.

    Bigfoot is a seasonal shelf beer at this point, has been for awhile. Unless someone is missing a year for a vertical tasting, bottles don’t hold much value. It’s extremely unlikely you could trade any for the beers you listed. It’s a classic. Drink and enjoy.

    Personally, I think you'll have a hard time with that one. I could see someone who really wants vintage Bigfoot doing a Westy 12 for some, but I don't think it'll pull Cantillon, and Pliny The Younger is so past its prime at this point, you wouldn't want it anyway.

    They definitely have some value - particularly to someone who's amassing a Bigfoot vertical, but with two '11s and three '15s, I wouldn't aim too high.

    To put this into perspective, I've offered some lesser Side Project, BA Fayston Maple, tons of Bissell, vintage Allagash, and a slew of well-respected bottles, and I've gotten very little Cantillon. I think you could maybe get a 375ml of Lambic, Classic Gueuze, Kriek, or Rosé de Gambrinus for them at $4$, but as far as the season Cantillons, you would need someone hell-bent on getting some '11 and '15 Bigfoot to have a chance at that.

    In any event, I wish you the best of luck! Being in Massachusetts, I'm sure you'll manage to pull something off eventually. Cantillon is just a bitch to get! I'd enjoy the Bigfeet if I were you.

    I recently closed one on FB for DoT 1,2,4,5, Scoopcake (375 ml), Double Nilla (375 ml), and Double Chocolate (375 ml). Hope it helps! Maybe a little over but I was motivated to close. Good luck!

    Does the Other Half mixed stout set (40 degrees, Pastrinauts, and Banana Latte) carry some trade weight? Looking to see if the set will land the recently released Aslin stouts - West Chester (1/pp) and Norwa (1/pp).

    So essentially 3:2. I am on the OH side.

    Anyone got a VRU value (clearly I haven't been in a trade value thread in a while) for the Angry Chair Puffs (Blue, Purple, Yellow) set? Trying to trade for one close to $4$ but I don't know the original brewery cost.
