I worship all brewers that can turn water into beer.

I agree. It could have been handled much better by everyone. But illinismitty’s question was "was it acceptable?". I think given the circumstances it was acceptable, though not desirable.

I said it on BA and I’ll say it here, but it doesn’t surprise me at all that guy who resembles Mario from Super Mario Bros. would feel some resentment toward a guy who calls himself "koopa." So I’ll give Joey a free pass on this one. Oh yeah and ISO more Bourbon Barrel Hunahpu’s. That was one of the best 1/2 ounces of beer I’ve ever had.

You’d drool (or worse) on the customers.

HEY WHAT IS GOING TO BE ON TAP IN TEN DAYS JERK?

Greetings Mr 4Beers

Thank you for your interest in Cigar City, LLC! We really appreciate it when people with great taste, like you, take an interest in us and our beers.

Several factors weigh heavily in determining the on-tap lineup here at Cigar City World Headquarters, including, but not limited to, ingredient and equipment availability, seasonal style fluctuations, keg volume, and my current regimen of thrice-hourly bathroom breaks while I recover from the flu.

Speaking of the flu, you never know when inspiration will strike--keep your eyes peeled for our new Huhnapooh Luwak stout!

We regret that our forecasting capabilities are, however, limited. The only keg we can guarantee tapping that day is Obfuscation, our new Belgian Ale. The only keg we can guarantee will be dry is the Belgian Quad, known as Prognostication.

We will absolutely and certainly have pretzels, though.

Cheers
Joseph M Redner
CEO & Chairman
Cigar City World Enterprises

ya, I think this "joey" attacked the situation in a very childish manner. Though I have a short fuse and with all of those stresses filling my life, on top of a sickness, I might have blown up too. The difference, however, is that I would have realized my mistake after that epically long email and apologized in the third one, rather than asking the guy not to buy my products. I would assume, after seeing how big this email chain has gotten and how much discussion it has stirred up, that the dude will apologize eventually because not only did he turn the OP of to buying his product, but he likely turned a bunch of other RB/BA people too.


he’s already said in this thread that it was a dick thing to say, but he didn’t apologize to the douchebag who originally emailed him, and he shouldn’t have


Ok. I only read the first page or two. 14 pages is just too many for me these days
