Firestone 11 Is Coming

When is it coming? Nobody really knows for sure but it should hit a very selected amount of central and southern California stores by the end of this week or early next week (when it gets to northern California I have no idea). As you can see, this super premium beer goes for a price of $16.99 for a 22 oz. bottle. If the 11th turns out to be as good as the 10th, that price will be a steal knowing that bottles of the 10th were selling for $100 and up after the word had gotten out how good it was. I've seen one person mention that a certain BevMo is not even planning on putting their stock out on the floor, but will be available to people who inquire about it. That has to be unprecedented for BevMo. You can bet there will be more than a handful of people stocking up with all they can find in hopes of making huge profits on ebay, which has recently become a controversial topic on both BeerAdvocate and I side on that of the beer lovers who are more than a bit annoyed that people are buying up beers that are truly enjoyed by us enthusiasts and using them only to make a profit off of much wealthier individuals who have hundreds of dollars to throw around at single beers. But I digress. Apparently there were only 500 cases total of the 11 produced, so if you want some you better not wait.
