    A bunch of Michter's 10 and Stagg Jr. Priced at msrp, but just not for me. Really having a hard time wrapping my head around the Michter's pricing.

    I swear I've read about a store owner doing this... thought it was here, but now I'm thinking it was actually on one of the BX/BP sites. But he had this exact policy.

    I think I know who you are talking about and he claims to have that policy, but I've never gotten him to sell any of his high-end bottles at MSRP. Every limited edition bottle in the store is 2 to 2.5X MSRP.

    I think we're thinking of the same guy... I seem to recall his shop being in MN.

    A good idea but unfortunately not legal in most areas because even if the store is allowed on premises consumption the broken seal means you are driving away with an open container.

    Plus I was wondered if a retailer is allowed to dictate what a purchaser does post sell since they would no longer possess the product.

    I've never tried GTS with any sort of soda. Maybe I'm missing out; but I'm OK with that.

    Hefty fine at the least. On the other note a retailer has absolutely no say in what a purchaser decides to do with the purchase.

    What if you we're to put it in your trunk before driving away?
