    Re: What did you pass up today? Summer '13

    Yeah, that's way too much for a not-so-good beer anyways. I love Founder's but that beer is just not good.

    Tempted by a Ezra B Single Barrel 12 year after seeing a post about it on Bourbon Exchange, but I passed. Figured it might be too similar to the EWSB I just plunked down on earlier this week.

    if i drop $100 in a liquor store, im sure as hell walking out with at LEAST three bottles of something. I know i can be ecstatic with KCSB, and i just bunkered loads of it at $18 each....half what it normally goes for here.

    This years was better than the past few but still not worth what they ask for it. With that said, 2 cases went rather quickly at the store.

    The triple iPa is still a gimmick. Too many off aromas and flavors. I've yet to try one I enjoyed.

    And I think founders double trouble is fantastic and underrated in the imperial iPa category.

    Pliny and hopslam get all the hype but double trouble is as good and easier to get.

    I agree with you about Double Trouble.

    Had my first pour of the EBSB 12 yesterday - I found it very similar to EC12 (which is a favorite).

    I also passed on some Devil Dancer at $25/4 so $6.25 per bottle. Seemed insane, and glad to hear an opinion supporting the pass.

    Re: What did you pass up today? Summer '13

    Buncha Charter 10 @15
    4R Secretariat @ $100
    Dozen or so 4R 2013 LE 1B @ $75+
    James E Pepper 15 yo rye @ $154
    Ardbeg Beist @ $111

    And I also "passed" on a few tax stripped OGDs and a handle of WT 8 yr. I say passed bc the owner aid it was too much work to get into the cabinet that they were in.

    You need to be a little more persuasive,I would have been a bit miffed walking out empty handed.Hopefully you can make another pass and catch that Sleestak in a better mood for the next go around.
