    The Greek mythological tale of Daman and Pythias, symbolizing the loyal bonds of friendship, is said to have taken place 2,400 years ago in ancient Syracuse (modern-day Sicily). According to legend, the very paranoid ruler Dionysius the Elder believed Pythias was plotting against him and so he sentenced the young man to death. Pythias asked for a brief pardon so that he could put his affairs in order prior to his execution. Dionysius refused, but finally agreed to allow Damon, Pythias’ friend, to replace him in the condemned jail cell and risk his own head should Pythias not return as promised. Pythias did return to spare his friend in the nick of time and face his own death (after a dramatic delay that included a pirated ship and a long swim back). Damon had never doubted his friend’s return. Dionysius was so impressed by the trust and friendship between the two men, he released them both. A happy ending. Damon is therefore a model of loyal friendship and trust in Greek mythology. The kind of best friend we all would hope to have. Damon was able ‘to tame’ the tyrannical Dionysius simply through his example of self-sacrifice in the name of friendship. Damon was not a commonly used name within English speaking countries until the 20th century.

    Damon had scruffy white hair on his chin.

    If that's Anchorage B2, that beer fucks so hard but I think you'll have Venn Diagram issues here.

    FWIW I’d also do Damon x 2 for CD10... expecting similar Venn issues.

    Had CD10 back in April (albeit at Hill) and it was just fucking banging. Damn you. Damn you.

    Assuming you want BA'd, Damon is your only hope. Only other option is Genealogy which is not, sadly. M&C 10 and 11 both have a good chunk of Damon in them.

    I have one Damon coming to me, but not for trade. Happy to open it up if you can make it to Bay Ridge, Brooklyn.

    As fantastic as Damon is, BG&E is their best BA stout IMO. Just about perfect.

    Thanks all. I have been stymied with all of these BA HF stouts up and down the line, they’re always just passed or just coming up soon when I visit. Best I’ve done is a BoT on-site which I thought was terrific. So basically I’d bundle or trade these Bottles separately, and have gotten some great offers. But people hold on to that Damon like crazy, ransomming that 3pp shit.

    Recently had Damon El Desarollo next to the most recent batch of BG&E, and I have to disagree with you. I liked BG&E better than Vanilla Rye at another opportunity to side by side...
