Borderline Shameless borderline self promotion
« on: September 26, 2014, 07:21:03 PM »
I've been working with a guy here in the SF bay area that has a new and I think maybe unique idea.

He's working with homebrewers to take award winning recipes, scale them up to commercial size, contract brew them and sell them via a beer club type operation.

I'm in the first shipment! still only within California at this point and not cheap but check it out!

Cool idea. But $60+ for 4 22oz bottles? IMHO a little over priced, even for the cool factor of it.

I agree. I think he's going to have to come to terms with that sooner rather than later. course, there's always a suprising amount of people who seem to have money to drop on the rare treat.

for his sake I hope he does well!

having thought this over it's really only about 15 bucks each including shipping. for a very rare experience that's actually fairly reasonable.

Pretty awesome, Jonathan!

Thanks Red, it is pretty cool.

He came by yesterday for a brew day and to give me the check for the licencing fee. Woo Hoo! I got paid for being a homebrewer! (not for brewing or for beer mind you)

This sounds really cool and unique and with all the taxes we pay in Chicago those prices are actually somewhat competitive

If the beer is worth that much and enough people buy it then its not too much. Its a lot of work and ingredients, packaging etc. I am actually happy to pay quite a bit more for quite a bit more quality, at least now and then. Good luck!
Don't let the bastards cheer you up.
