I found a local beer shop that has 5 or 6 different versions of Fifty-Fifty Eclipse. 22oz wax-topped bottles @ $35 apiece. I'm not familiar with this beer or brewery. Are these worth picking up?

I wouldn't just buy em all. But you'll get bites. Then go get the ones you need.

$35 is a bit steep though but someone would love to have them.

Fifty-Fifty is in Truckee, CA (Near Lake Tahoe). They brew Eclipse (imperial stout) once a year and then age it for six months in different whiskey barrels. The wax color indicated what kind of barrel it is from.

They sell futures and the beer is often hard to find, but this year seems to be more available.

I believe they had that one. I do not remember all the different barrels, but, like I said, there were maybe 5 or 6 different colored waxes - I only remember blue and gold for certain though.
