I have an extra 09.09.09, 10.10.10, and two 11.11.11's of Stone Vertical Epic. Looking to trade for anything prior to 07.07.07 (I have 07 and 08 already). Also, if you happen to have any extra 02, 03, 04, 05, or 06 VE you are willing to sell me, please PM with price. Looking to have as close to a complete collection before the big day to split with friends.

What's the significance of the 02?

First one in the series and in theory, the most rare.

IMO, no beer is worth what people are selling that beer for (especially given the gamble on how it's been stored for 10 years and how it's kept even if stored well). But if I had one... I'm sure I'd sell it if someone wanted to pay what people seem to be willing to pay.

Most definitely the most rare. I don't know the exact numbers, but I've heard from the brewery that the 02 was a very small batch because at the time, this seemed like a really crazy idea, and they had no idea if it was going to take off or flop. It wasn't until 03, after seeing the idea accepted, and the limited supplies of 02 snapped up, that they stepped up to a more normal size production run.

Going rates now seem to be in the neighborhood of $20 for the later years, $30 to $35 for the mid years, $45 for the early years, and the '02 is whatever the market will bear. I'll tell you this: I have a standing bid for all the 02 I can deliver at $250 per bottle. I'm not taking it because I know with patience, I can do better. As I said, I just sold one for $450.

So, who wants to try all 11 VE's, food paired with each and various barrel aged versions?

All you have to do is be in Escondido on Wed, December 12th.

I'll see you there!

No beer sales. There's a trading section for trades only.
