    People probably know about this site by now, in between burning copies of Action Comics#1 to light their Stradivarius Churchillses, the people who post on this site must have crazy whimsy in their valuations.

    The purpose of this thread is to find the most outright shitty offers and determine which would be the absolute worst deal. Apologies in advance if you are the sack of foreskin asking $95.00 for a bottle of Bramble.

    Here's my vote:

    $800 for an 11 year old saison. SPF45. I know it has zero gots. I love saisons, but srs.

    alternatively:

    a $400 bottle of StB is enough to curl ones regal mustache at.

    Let's find some shitty deals here.

    Besides the multiple Stone 02.02.02 available for $400 I think this one is pretty terrible:

    Yes: I'd love that 2 year old DIPA and California Common. $200 you say? Done!

    Tread lightly my friends.

    This is exactly how we got banned from that other place. What's its name again?

    I think we'll be hard pressed to find a worse deal than that

    How do you judge a bad deal though? Anything over $0 for really old IPAs is a bad deal. That $500 KH is beyond laughable due to price. I'd say that for different reasons, they're probably similar on a shittyass deal.

    Hmm... that might actually be below market value, honestly. It's just a big chunk of cash to drop at once.

    I gotta say, the sales copy is getting a lot more enthusiastic over there. I wonder if that's also an effect of the bannings pushing more people out of BA.

    You realize this will sell more beer for these greedy mother fuckers, yes?

    (please continue though, I like to laugh while I drink)

    I'd pay $50 for King Henry. Love it. Ticked 4 times and worth that. $500? Um.....

    That site is unbelievably horrific, and I'm not even talking about the overpriced beers.

    This has to be in the running:

    Who even keeps this site afloat? Does Joel just keep buying everything that gets listed?

    I'll admit: I have both bought and sold on MBC. Trading is fun and I've built some nice relationships with people, but it's also an incredibly inefficient technique for redistributing beer to people who want it. There's a damn good reason why most transactions use currency rather than barter.

    The prices look outrageous on the surface, but frankly, so is the trading market for a lot of stuff. Some beers are overpriced on MBC compared to the trading market, but a lot of others are underpriced.

    bensw has done some investigations on that site, if he wants to he could probably elucidate.

    But regardless, I think they just charge $1 per listing, regardless of sale. So idiots looking for a payday are what keeps it afloat.

    It's paid for by the sellers alone. You buy "Credits" to list things.
