This is a crazy story. Is Adam James Dickinson from Fort Collins on this site. He stole a lot of beer from Avery Brewing including a case of Izzy.

Sui Generis Barrel-Aged Sour Ale valued at $300 a bottle.

Yeah, I was wondering that too and where they came up with these magical prices for the other beers.

Izzy = $300, not Black Tot and Sui Generis.

Even Isabelle isn’t $300. Maybe half to two-thirds of that at most.

That’s what I was thinking as well. I’d also say that Isabelle and DDG would be about the same and DDG is more than $100. #beerspeculating

I imagine the estimates were provided by someone who was not pleased by the actions of the alleged thief.

I’d also speculate that while the first Izzy might be only $100, getting enough of them to fill back up three cases might start getting exponentially expensive.

That’s the same question that I had. I mean, we get gifts of beer from other breweries on occasion, but my guess is that some of the alleged stolen beer must have been Avery beer that was then traded for the other brewer’s beer. I have to imagine that they are going to need much better proof rather than a bunch of ’rare beer’ that this guy has to convict him unless Avery became some sort of distributor that I wasn’t aware of.

Also, can we please add ’allegedly’ to the title, just a personal pet peeve.
