Just wondering how you came to that figure for what it's worth?

I have no idea what the beer is, or how much its worth, BUT, as soon as a salesman says "its a deal" there is high probability its the farthest thing from it ... for the buyer.

jus sayin

Keep this kind of garbage off Bar Towel please and go hang out on my beer cellar. The Riedel glass comes free when you buy a bottle and the bottles sell for about $115 when the LCBO gets them.

You didn't pay $500 or $550 for it, and if you did, you got laughably fucked.

What you think it's worth is irrelevant. Not how trades work...

Hey guys,

I didnt pay $500.......just like my old wines.....price goes up for older editions. Some of my wines are now worth 10 times what I paid.....thats just the way it goes.

Same for some rarer older editions of beers.

YOU DONT HAVE TO BE INTERESTED IN A TRADE FOR THIS BEER !

This has to be the shittiest thread ever on Bartowel.

pezhere, if you go secondary market value, I would consider a couple of Dark Lords for it... if you're in the Ottawa area.

Hell, this is even worse than some of the junk on the Canadian FB ISO/FT groups.


Just put an ISO: HF shelf stuff and I'm sure it'll get done. People are trying to offload that junk at every turn.

I don't get all the hate on here. Yes I think the bottle is over-valued too, however if I'm buying a used record I certainly don't berate the guy asking too much, I just shop elsewhere.
