It's called a free market, buy it or don't.

I bet someone does buy it, if only because he got one of the brandy bottles. So 5 bottles, $200 each. People pay that for Utopias and that seems less rare.

Really? People are paying 200 bucks for a bottle of Utopias? Wow, I didn't realize people were willing to do that. Well, I guess I learn something new every day.
I'd rather brew my own Imperial Russian Stout, but to each his own!

No... no brandy bottle. Aged in brandy barrels. Just 4 bottles of beer.

4 bottles of beer on the wall... 4 bottles of beer...

It does suck that the winning tickets didn't go to someone who was excited to get it to drink someday and that the beer isn't bought by people excited to drink it, but that would be a perfect world and we definitely don't live in one of those. I saw one of the specialty bottles on ebay the other day by itself for $750. I'd love to see the feds crack down these guys selling beer! But I know they're selling the :collectors bottle."

I was lucky enough to buy a bottle a year or two ago on here from a member....for what he paid for it plus actual shipping to me. I'd do that again. $28 was about my limit though for one bottle

I did word that incorrectly; as you said one of the bottles is aged in brandy bottles, but from the wording "as well as" I believe he is selling five bottles. Four regular and one brandy-barrel aged.

Sometimes people want something different than your Russian Imperial Stout, and maybe they're intrigued by a bottle of Utopias. I see nothing wrong with buying a 200 dollar bottle of anything, provided you can afford it. Utopias is its own monster, and to compare it to any normal beer would be silly. Whether people like it or hate it, it is a truly unique product.

That said, the guy selling Dark Lord for that much is an asshole.
