I can probably do this. I know you love pretrades.
Explain the doucheyness to me, someone who's not an active beer trader, because all I see is a guy who found out he might be able to get his hands on something awesome and he would rather trade it than drink it.
Seems less douchey than those who live in select cities getting on BA every February and dropping humblebrags left and right about how easy it was for them to get PtY.
Douchey = pretrade, for DONG (most well known DONG, at that), referencing trading for whales. What's NOT douchey about. Honestly, I thought it was all just troll fun
Other BAs being more douchey doesn't make this less douchey.
Can somebody please elaborate on what DONG stands for? Please also use it in context in a sentence. Brownie points for references to Natalie Portman's ass.
Has this pre-trade gotten done yet?
i understand what's annoying about this thread to so many, but i'm a little surprised at the outrage too. we're on a forum where the argument for cbs and king henry was "well, i only got ONE and it's delicious, so...", which was acceptable even though there were many thousands of bottles out there.
now, you just have 1 (maybe a few) growlers across the county, and those people will likely only get one, and it's delicious, so...
i mean yeah, of course he's going to try to hold people over a barrel for it. he should stop playing coy and people should stop feigning outrage.
Is "douchecanoes" pronounced like the water-going vessel or like a lava-spewing geologic phenomenon? Thank you, and I will take my answer off-air.
Water-going vessel...at least, according to Patton Oswalt.
Got it. Although, I do like the latter pronunciation/interpretation as well: a mountain-sized, douche-spewing entity.
I'm outraged about things that don't affect me all the time. Actually, I'm pretty sure the fact they don't affect me is the reason I'm outraged.
Here we go again
Oh trust me, if it was possible I'd definitely buy a growler for myself as well.
Ok, say he does get a growler of pty, how do those of us that have never tasted this nectar from the god Vinnie know that he didnt just fill a growler full of PTE and send it on its way? I think that is the bigger question.
Thanks for busting me out.
Not really saying that this is what is happening, just making a blanket statement about any PtY type beer out there that gets put in a growler and traded. Who knows whats really in it. Just the beer gods and the filler
Plah-knee th' Younger is a whaht whale fer me. AH ESS OH.
I'm not sure I'm outraged, but I will say that my answer to the originally posed question is: close to zero. The odds that it's actually a properly-filled growler of PtY are sufficiently low that I personally would not give up anything of value to get it.
Expand the trade to include bottles of Pliny the Elder. Easy game.
If PTY growlers at a future point in time, i will have them all. Nuff said.
If OP gets taken care of, I'm also interested in making the sane trade. After OP, of course, since I'm very gracious.
i've definitely had a bathroom growler of PTY. it was GREAT. (a li'l flat tho)
Any bartender could do a covert Growler fill.
Still if it's legit I'd drink it with friends and be done with it.
Any bartender who wants to get PtY next year will not do so.
This sums up 95% of what is wrong with the trading forum.
How would you have it ran?
Forgot to say, I am the other 5%......oh, your thought was fine, it was putting it out there in black and white that was the sin. I mean, after all, if rarerdos or whatever the hell it was, was pulling whales, no reason you shouldn't be able to.
Yeah it can fetch great beer, as it one itself imagine that. Dude get bee to enjoy/share/etc. If you get a PTY growler I would recommend drink it fast or if you insist on a trade, then get that growler out there ASAP. PTY will get you some great beer, then again trading locals also should.
It would have been like this, "How much profit do you think I can get from it on ebay ?" With followup posts along the way, to answer critics, that mention, voluminously, how generous he is with the beers he doesn't sell.
Toss it in as an extra.
