if only you all could see what’s been happening in tampa, florida this past week. it’s tampa bay beer week, and every day this one particular brewery called angry chair, who make some of the most delicious stouts around (assuming you like your beers to actually taste like chocolate, vanilla, coconut, rocky road, etc.), released a different stout each day.
for 1 bottle of beer each.....1 fucking bottle, some people waited 15 hours in line. no, this isn’t a joke. I say 1 bottle, because it was 1 per person. some people hired local homeless men and women to stand in line for them. then, those homeless started getting bought out by other mule seekers in line, essentially making the homeless person an auctioneer, taking the highest bidder for the bottle. all of this for the sake of flipping a bottle that cost $30, for $300-$500. yes, you read that right.....some people spend that much money on one bottle of beer. some go for hundreds, if not thousands more. i swear this is true.
bottle counts for the angry chair releases were less than 1,000.
can’t blame the brewery for this. don’t see how blaming sr for the shitlords on rsd is any different. every hobby has these assholes.
