Well, I just found a second, different, bottle shop that is also carrying these...not quite the selection nor the quantity, but cheaper ($30). It seems to me that perhaps these are not as rare around here as I had originally thought.

It may not be rare to you. But it can be rare to others outside of the distribution area. I have zero access to 50-50 stuff.

I hear you. Guess I'm just being gun-shy over the price. PM me if you have a trade suggestion...I like pretty much all styles, sour/funky included. Like I mentioned before...I don't really know what I should be looking for that I can't get here.

Go to one of the beer rating sites. Look at their top 100 beers. Start there. Some you won't be able to get. You've got access to a $30 beer that others want to try, so you can get $30 worth from someone else.

Last time I checked I could get Blue, Black, and Gold for $28 at my go to bottle shop. Even though that's not a bad price for what it is they kinda just sit on the shelf there and collect dust. They're good for trading, though, because only a few states get FiftyFifty distributed to them, and alot of people want to try it. I've had Black, and it's a great BA stout. I'd rather spend less for a Parabola or some KBS, but it's definitely good stuff.

Okay well this might help I had rare beer tasting I hosted where we had some heady, hill farm, hunahpu, 2 cascade sours, fruet, and black wax eclipse of the 7 of us most rated it number 2 with a third or two. Overall it was second only heady on most peoples ratings.

For those local yeah I'd only buy maybe two at $30 since it is such a premium price compared to stuff like parabola and bcbs but if you order futures they are only 21 dollars or so which I'd pay that price all day. In fact I ordered a mix case of 2013 futures =]

I would check out the maw thread and see what people are asking for. That will give you an idea of what expensive/rare beers are popular out there.

I was offered two Heady 4-packs for a bottle of Evan Williams Eclipse on this site. Everything is relative...you just need to find somebody who wants what you have and has something you want.
