157 bids and a price (at the moment) of $503,300.... A little bit out of my price range... Really cool none the less

Thats cool and all, but WTF!! Who is it that has over 500Gs to spend on a beer. I don't think i could do it no matter how much money i had, must just be the tight ass in me. That is just one of those things that i couldn't bring myself to spend that much money on.

Cheers

The guy that won it is a record collector. Not many other items won much over $20. I wonder If he will actually pay for the thing?

Saw a blurb about this in the "Secret Santa Wishlist" thread. I wonder if we can get an idea of the recipe and possibly clone it? I know it was high alcohol but otherwise no idea....
