    dont know if this is a taboo question, but Im curious for how this is trading (I paid way too much on ebay when it was available).

    So you paid a shitload of money for it and haven't thought of just drinking it yet?

    Drink it, or send it to me so I can drink it. Always wanted to try CR

    B1 trades pretty high still. B2 would be significantly less but still could land some nice bottles, especially bc of the price point.

    I love Bruery beers, and bought into the hype that I just had to try it. I wound up getting 4 bottles. Tried one and hated it! Sickening sweet and too thin for my taste. So, with buyers remorse, I'd like to see what I could get for it, but didnt want to offend anyone by asking for crazy trades.

    You can get good stuff for it. Do you like sours? I bet you could get $4$ (at $40) Cantillon for it.

    I can understand the sweetness turning someone off, but too thin? Do you only drink used motor oil?

    rS members got one for free( $0!) with their membership so it really is like grey Monday and not really worth anything

    Plus all they had to do was order it online. Should go 1:1 with a BCBS bramble.

    Bramble is a wale, bro. I was thinking more like a 4oz pour of '12 Dark Lord.

    You're unlikely to recoup that, as you've undoubtedly learned. But on the plus side you can definitely use them to get some tasty beers.
