Fuck dude, that's a deal.

How?

Same place where the manager let me try the Pappy 20 and the William Larue Weller.
I've been buttering him up for a couple of months now.every couple of weeks I bring in something he doesn't sell or hasn't tried.
I walked in Saturday with a bottle of Michters 10 year and before I even showed it to him he asked me if I wanted either a bottle of 10 or 12 year Pappy at the non marked up price ;D 8) :D

Michter's 10 is nice, but if it's that easy, I'll be swinging by.

I was in Canada a  few months ago and noticed a ton of oddball stuff in the duty free shop. Never really paid attention to those shops when I traveled more often.

If any Pappy is available, even for 100-130 a bottle you can EASILY flip it for much more, should your twink-ass be too intimidated.

Exactly.

Also, I'm over the whole craft beer thing.

Too many overthought IPAs out there now.
