Black, purple and white are worth picking up especially the purple and white. I only got to taste the black this year unfortunately. Next year FYI they do futures where they are only about $21 dollars half up front with rest at pickup late winter. Though now I think about shipping would kill savings.

White is Elijah Craig 20 yr. Not to be confused with beige, which is bernheim wheat.

I've heard mixed opinions. I have traded 2 bottles (elijah craig and evan williams) and have a four roses left. Still haven't had any, so I can't give my own opinion. I haven't seen them for less than $30.

That's a pretty good price for them that far away, they tend to be about as expensive in CA... I have never bit the bullet because personally that seems like way too much money for 220z of beer. 20 is getting up there for my limit on these sorts of things. I have had ti on tap a couple times and it is quite tasty but I can't recall which ones I have tasted at the moment. I do believe I had the Craig which was quite good.

Ok, so I called the shop and this is what they have:

Black - Evan Williams
Gold - Mellow Gold
Purple - Elijah Craig 12-yr
Green - Rittenhouse
Blue - Old Fitzgerald

So, looks like maybe I'll head back for at least a Purple, and maybe a Black...not sure I can justify buying more than that (and even that is a big stretch!)

I've seen these in a couple Chicago Area stores for $35 collecting dust on shelves. I'm always tempted, but $35 is a bit high for me...I don't think people know about 50/50 out here, even though the head brewer came from Flossmoor Station.

I'd be happy to consider trades, though I really am new to the whole idea of trading commercial beers - I don't really know enough to know what to ask for in trade. I've just been collecting things that look good to me in my local shops,

I would say try for a $4$ trade if you feel that would be most fair. What are your favorite types of beers? Anything you've wanted to try but don't have access to?
