I think its still a great beer and I would love to drink, but its trade value is like any other off the shelf beer. Im sick with traders offer 2 BCBS for a Hunaphu, DL, BT, CR, or other brewery only releases. You have a great beer in your hand, drink it, because that is what I would do. Or ask for other common beers, again, I am not going to trade Fou Foune, BA DL, or Veritas for what should be an extra in a trade.

Fou Foune is an off the shelf beer.

Would a 2008 BCS be an extra in trade as well?

I used to bonus quite a bit of BCS. The 2008 era was especially unwanted, or maybe we just received a bunch? I donít know. We still had dozens of cases of it left when the 2009 batch was released. I remember buying a few cases at cost and trading a case for 2 growlers of good local beer in an attempt to clear out some stock.

Then again, I used to take home Fou Foune once every couple of weeks, even had 3 or 4 vintages to choose from. Beer used to be much easier to acquire, but the whole hoarding and trading thing is that much easier to scroll past with all the great breweries and better distribution in my area.

BCBS is being distributed in 30 states and is going to be brewed and bottled year round and will probably be in all 50 states within a year or two. It would be impressive if InBev can keep the quality up for BCBS while dramatically increasing the quantity, but only time and a bunch of tickers will determine that.

Huh, weird. The stuff is sitting on the shelf at my liquor store, and not moving at all. Iíve had my fill.

Same state as the OP and we got a bunch too.

But at $25 a 4 pack Iím sure as hell not buying any. Maybe thatís why itís sticking around out here.
