Right, but is there a good site for IP beer for whiskey trading? Or do these trades happen a decent amount on here?

Thanks, man.

Maybe set your sights to semi-attainable and go Weller 12?

I think that one could normally set up a beer for bourbon trade without issue, but when you're talking about Pappy or BTAC products, you've ventured into a different area. These products are HIGHLY, HIGHLY sought after and the normal trader isn't going to trade you one unless you've got some major artillery. The secondary value of Pappy/BTAC is what drives this and beer traders often find themselves paying a "tax" in a way because honestly, the bourbons are typically harder to get than beers are.

Long story short, if you want to trade for any Pappy/BTAC, don't expect folks to openly offer it. You'll need to offer something big and hope that someone bites.

Shit I’m sorry I seriously thought that was the bottle they were talking about! They were probably talking about old Rip van winkle ORVW. My bad!!!!!

We just got in our Barrel of Jos A. Magnus in at Lukas OP. We teamed up with the Kansas City Whiskey Club to pick this one out. Located right up front at our customer service desk.

Is that different from Jos. A. Bank?

Honestly, your best bet is to try to get added to CBBX if you want to try to trade beer for bourbon but those trades rarely go through. Better off selling the beer and buying on BSM.
