    Got offered a Huna 15 for my BCVR 1:1. What do you think?

    I really don't see this being off at all. Make the trade if you want a Huna. Neither of these beers were easy to get.

    If you want to squeeze every drop of "value" out of your beer, I'm sure someone out there will give you more.

    I will just say this...as an opinion based on previous trades on these forums
    If someone puts up a FT: Huna 2015 ISO: Vanilla Rye (1:1), that offer will not happen (legitimately)
    If someone puts up FT: Vanilla Rye ISO: Huna 2015 (1:1), their inbox will fill up quickly.

    Funny, got the same offer. lol We're probably in the same facebook group. I was going to take it but I still think Vanilla should trade higher. There are a ton of Huna out there but only a few Vanilla. Although the $200 price tag for a ticket to get them may change things.

    if you would have more pleasure from one vs the other, then do what floats your boat.

    There were certainly more bottles produced of Vanilla than 15 Huna.

    Way more bottles of VR than huna, not sure how that idea was brought up...even with extras Huna was under 9k total, i know there was plenty more than that of VR, huna didnt even go into distro and required a $200 ticket and is 4 pp....VR was just a behind the counter limited beer for $25....if you knew someone you could land a bunch of bottles up to a case... not possible with huna this year... just an FYI

    I agree that there was way more VR produced then Huna. However it was widely distributed to a large population which made it hard to get. It was very rare to see it sitting behind a counter somewhere. I'm not saying it didn't happen... But I best 99% of the people on this forum never saw it sitting behind the counter for purchase. There were long lines at almost every release and it sold out as fast as they could sell it.

    I agree that some people with connections could have bought a case of VR, but I bet that is a VERY limited number. Some people at Huna day could have a brought a significant other/mule and easily left with 8 bottles.

    Anyways... I'm just playing devils advocate. Both are great beers that are hard to come by. Anyone should be happy with either.

    Cheers!

    I didn't do the math but sure, 2 years of VR vs what like 2009-2015 of Huna's releases. Numbers probably favor Huna.

    Also probibly going to be brewed again, who knows when vanilla is going to be brewed again.

    I mean who really cares? This is a discussion on BCVR vs. Huna '15.
     
  22. markgugs

    markgugs Initiate (0) Dec 20, 2006 New Jersey

    that was essentially my point. which means there were/are a lot more bottles of BCBVR than there are of Huna. but then consider all those bottles of VR were spread all over kingdom come, whereas all the Huna bottles went home with a scant 2,000 folks. when that sort of situation exists, I basically go, hmm, well that's a 1:1

    lol

    That's what I think too. If you have the Huna '15 and post it FT don't be mad, if Ya gotta post a small +. If you're the BCVR side and you're ISO Huna '15 don't bitch you gotta give up a precious vanilla that was only 20 gazillion bottle count, that IP trades w the likes of quantity of booboo beer all across America. Spot on Mark, damn dawg, when you coming down this way for a share?

    Whatever it is value is in the eye of the beholder. Make the trade if you want. They are both amazing beers and would both be enjoyable. Cheers!

    If somebody wants to proof out this hypothesis, I've got an extra Huna for trade for a Vanilla. Please pursue this first with those who have offered the same deal earlier in this thread.

    VR to Huna sounds like a nice trade in either direction.
    Both parties get a great limited beer to drink.

    *Disclaimer: I´m assuming we all trade beers to drink, not sell/hoard/trade onwards...

    I think the El Cat. club has 1500 members so they might have 4 bottles per to cover those so 6,000 bottles, My brother and I split up a catador membership, neither one of us wanted to split the 200 $ for him to go get bottles at huna day so this works out great ...

    At the time, they were correct. Far from bullshit. Every one was lead to believe that there were NO extras until today. Your post does nothing but attempt to start a flame war over the rarity of Hunahpu. This is probably not a real second batch (like the "sorry batch"), so go "blah, blah, blah" somewhere else.

    For the sake of trying to start a discussion with you, my guess would be less than 1500 bottles since they didn't make it a guaranteed bottle like they did for left over '14 Hunahpu. No one knows how many.

    So 8,000 + 6,000 = 14,000. Thanks!

    "If you're a member, you can buy up to 4 bottles for yourself. If you're a trustee for a member, you can buy up to 2 bottles per member. In other words, to get 4 bottles, you must be here in-person to buy them. Otherwise, your trustee can only buy 2 bottles." <----- this sounds like they have enough bottles for el cat members to each have 4, 1,500 el cat member I believe so my guess is 6,000 bottles , No where in their msg does it say "first come first serve" "limited number of bottles"

    I thought that at first. I guess we'll just have to see. If they went from "no extras" to 6000 extras then I'll go back to never trusting CCB again. I just don't want to believe that till I know for sure or not.

    Lol. If they honestly have 6,000 extra bottles then I'll report my own post from 25 minutes ago.

    They have approximately 28 more bottles. Maybe 29, but that one is a low fill for sure.

    There are bottle limits of 4 and 2 for members/trustees. Not sure why anyone would assume they have guaranteed bottles for every member.

    My buddy wants to offer up a Parabola plus a NYFRB 10% bomber for a Huna. I think it'll get crickets. True?

    The lack of online sales and limited nature of trustee pickups makes me think its closer to 1-2000 extra bottles.
