Default DDG for Founders CBS

Is this an even trade?

I got an offer for this trade. What do you all think?

He asked if I'd like anything else for it. (who would say no?) but I dont want to inadvertently go overboard and gouge him.

Here's what I know:

DDG released at about $40 + fees retail and CBS sold for $18 retail. CBS had a huge markup in some places, upwards of $40.

You are giving a DDG to get CBS or the other way around?

Even, no

Thats how trades work, supply and demand.
If the right 2 people who have what the other has...

On another note: Id love for founders to re-release CBS for there last backwoods of 2013!!

This!

Personally I wouldn't give up a DDG for a shelf beer that was less than half the price. I would think you could get more than just CBS for it, but if that is all you want then go for if.

I got offered a CBS for my DDG.

I guess my next question is, was CBS worth the hype to anyone that had it? What would it compare to?

Thanks everyone for chiming in with your feedback.

Yes CBS was phenomenal but I never had DDG so I can't tell you witch is better but from what I been hearing founders last backstage series for 2013 is going to be CBS. I would compare it to KBS but better.

I would say no...IMO CBS is one of those OMG HOLYPOOP beers that end up meeting expectations.
DDG is one of those, Fuk yea...THIS is the reason i spend 40$ on a bottle!

OR

If you have multiple DDG and really itching for CBS then yes but i would include extras to meet $4$. Possibly a decent ~15$ bottle.

Cheers, great trade!
