    It's makes one sound as if they are in the 6th grade.

    Sucre would normally have sat at $33 a bottle here. Oddly, when TW accidentally prices it like a 12bottle case, $15 bottle, it doesn't sit so much.

    Snagged two Backyard Ryes off the shelf last week in Hagerstown, MD behind a $9.99 price tag. Brought them up to the counter while I nearly shit myself only to be a victim of the old bait and switch. They rung up as $54.99 a piece and I made clear they are a**holes and walked out without my Backyard Rye :-(

    They also had a bunch BCBW for $18.99 a bottle and a case of BCBS at $9.99 a bottle.

    No wonder they're still shelf turds

    You do understand that the use here is just for fun. It's clearly being used ironically give my hat they want to hear about the best beers you unexpectedly lucked out in and found somewhere other than in a line at the brewery. Perhaps this was lost on you here?

    I invite you to come smack me please. Something tells me you won't.

    Stumbled upon a '95, I couldn't pass it up. My buddies snagged a couple bottles for my 21st birthday way back in 2002, we thought it was horrible. I didn't think I'd ever see another.

    Did you just find this? If so, where? I have a 95 on hand, but I'd love another.

    They had a single bottle on Memorial Day weekend, and for some stupid reason (40 bucks...) I passed on it. They also had a few golden blends on the shelf, along with some incorrectly priced Vanilla Shakes (4.99 instead of 9.99)

    I just picked up 2-4packs of 2013 BCBS on the bottom shelf of a gas station in the small town adjacent to mine

    Oddly enough in Waterbury last weekend a friend stumbled upon some KBS just hanging out on the shelf. Good looking out @ottodyer!

    The case thing probably - hey I don't see it that much out here
    Maybe a single of BCBW. Amazing what the shopkeepers will resort to :confused:

    On a recent trip to Maine I picked up Lunch for $4.98...this rural savage had it on the shelf since being bottled 9/2013. I've yet to crack it, luckily I found one bottled in 4/2014 to do a new vs. old side by side...

    4-pack of BCBW (there were two packs) today. Grabbed it since I haven't had it. $18.99, not bad.

    It was the shelves and the tall slanted roof lol. $50 is insane though. Did it look like they just broke up the box sets?

    They got 4 cases.. And apparently their cost was pretty high, hence the hefty price tag. But fuck it. I bought 2 anyway.

    Came across 7 lonely KBS just sitting on a shelf, asked if there was a limit guy said no, so I bought them all at $4.99 a bottle
