    Partridge held up pretty well when I had it this last December and I typically hate Bruery beers. It wasn't amazing or anything, but better than I expected, which admittedly wasn't much.

    At that price, a 4-pack of that Tree House IPA goes for about the same as Cantillon Lambic D'Aunis plus Vigneronne on the secondary market. WTF?​

    He would probably say:

    "My word means shit now but I know who I owe. Boxes are way late and that is on me and will always be there."

    If prior years of Bruery “archive sales” have learned us anything its that they thought they had some of those saved but dont.

    Then again, I also remember them selling piapt and papier for $100 a piece, then issuing refunds cuz they didnt have them....only to later find some and sell them again but at a much lower price without the “benefit/donation to a good cause” attachment.

    I could totally see them pulling a stone and rebrewing them all as an encore though.

    I do not doubt this cuz the last turtle doves I had was a little dicey but man the 100% BA papiers I recently tanked were amazing.... then again maybe their wax seal jobby job assisted in keeping all the airs out/in?

    From their website:
    If you don't French:
    We speculate for the good cause!!

    Geuzes of the Cantillon brewery are appreciated by geeks all over the world. The demand far exceeds the supply and when Cantillon offers to brew something exceptional, the greed of some collectors let's their value rise (through social networks) to unreasonable prices


    They were banking on this tbh. They will be auctioning another jeroboam online (the first one was sold that evening for 850 euro's)

    I'm not sure who the bigger schmucks out there are. The ones selling Juice Machine for $100+ a can, or the people actually buying them.

    That one I really don't get. Juice Machine was good when I had it, but tastes like...basically any other one of Tree House's double IPAs. Like, Doppelganger is available at Tree House right now, tastes almost the same, and is under 5 bucks a can with a case limit.

    No one's told them that Doppleganger is really King Julius with a different dry hop. Shhhhhhh!

    It's not about flavor, it about having the most .RAR cans for maximum Instragram fame.

    Only $90+ per can though. The Juice Machine Teku's have bids over $100 on eBay.

    Apparently one can of Juice Machine traded for Nath 1:1 and there are people offering Juice Machine+ some other Tree House cans for St. Lam and Fou. Is this the new thing? Can I start trading IPAs for lambic now? Like, seriously, WTF is wrong with people?
