score or....
« on: October 19, 2012, 07:57:07 AM »
gluttony.
A friend closed their sport's bar not long ago. selling off their beer.  I at first just bought all the Argus, Rasputin, Red seal (love this stuff) and a Dirty bastard(really like, but i don't think it should be on the bjcp listas a good example) .  but after a few weeks they still had a bunch to unload.  i just bought another nearly 13 cases (okay a few are budwweiser) but the rest craft of one kind or another. so i say again, did i just have a good score or am i a glutton?

You got all this for free? Or how much did you pay?  I'd say you got a good score...why would that be gluttony? What else were they gonna do with it? Toss it? Surely not...

EDIT: guess I need to read closer...never was great at reading comprehension in school...So how much did you pay for it all?

I don't think these things are mutually exclusive are they? I mean you could well be a glutton, but you still made a good score.

no, i paid some for it but only roughly about 112 bucks a case on average. we also got a few bottles of booze.   they had some kegs but mostly of miller, coors, which is just too much of stuff i am not fond of.  maybe later i will get a picture of it laid out to post

Please tell me that's a typo. I don't know what beer prices are in your area, but $112 bucks a case seems a bit steep to me...

Not gluttony. Just plain good sense and a great deal on beer. I would have done the same in your shoes.
