    My friend made me try a Redd's apple ale the other day. So I took this fancy instagram picture with the Redd's can, two tuliped tasting glasses with the ale in it, along with a couple apples, some dried roses and a bottle of ORVW10/107 and a bottle of Stagg in the background.

    My friend's (KeithB on here) comment was along the lines "I am just going to assume you mixed all of those ingredients" lol

    Nope, I don't make anything fresh. It's not good for you.

    Attached are the rules that you published. I fully understand that I can't use both tickets at event to buy more than the 2 bottles, but just by buying an extra ticket, I have not violated any rule (except when you seem to be making up new rules on the fly). You set up a system that allowed one to buy more than 1 ticket. If you are going to pick on me, why don't you also invalidate everybody else that bought more than 1 ticket?

    Re: Balcones: Next stop, world domination?

    The back story is that I meant to buy 1 ticket. The service they used for ticket sales Eventbrite is not very user friendly. I accidentally got 2 tickets in my basket and there was no option to remove 1. Tickets were on timer and transaction had to be completed in 15 minutes. If I waited, both would be gone, so I purchased both. I posted the ticket for sale here and on Facebook and I never asked more than face value. If Balcones would have approached me and asked in polite manner about returning the extra ticket, I would have. But since they basically demanded that I do so and do so immediately, I felt singled out and refused.

    Yes I have been critical of some of Balcones business practices, but I have never said anything negative about their product. I've a been a fan and supporter for a long time of the product. I bought a ticket because I wanted an opportunity to purchase one of these limited release products. I think I was singled out because of my past criticism and they don't want me there. Based on the interaction I've had with them on this, the feeling is mutual.

    Very poor form shown by the rep in this bloviating self-promotional thread.

    He's shown poor form in other forums before too. I'm not a fan of the few products I've tried from Balcones, and his behavior in this matter has definitely created a further negative association in my mind.

    Is there any chance that this guy paid 270 bucks for a bottle of ETL 90th birthday when it came out?

    Just curious.
