Alpine Beer Company Sells Exponential Hoppiness Via Brown Paper Tickets
(Alpine,CA) – There has been years of strain between Alpine Beer Company and those who want their most special beers, and that issue might now be resolved. Alpine has put one of their most sought after beers, Exponential Hoppiness on sale, in bottles on e-commerce site Brown Paper Tickets. The strain mentioned was partially do to Alpine’s relatively low supply being met with enthusiasts of all sorts trying to get their hands on the beer, but also opportunists who would shop for the beer just to flip it for profit or trade bait.
Much like AleSmith Brewing, Alpine has put the beer on sale online, thus preventing line cutters, proxy buyers. They are also giving a window of time to retrieve the bottles in person, essentially limiting the sale to those who can actually visit the brewery.
Here are the details from BPT:
“Starting this week, you will be able to purchase (2) bottles of Exponential Hoppiness, our triple IPA. You may pick up your bottles beginning September 9, 2014 through September 27, 2014. Any bottles not picked up by September 27, 2014 will be surrendered to Alpine Beer Company. No exceptions.
Please use your name when purchasing the bottles. Only you may pick up your bottles, no proxies allowed. You may not purchase bottles under another person’s name. To retrieve your bottles, you will be required to show your proof of purchase (your Brown Paper Ticket), and valid ID. Valid ID for the purchase of alcohol and to ensure your name matches to your bottle purchase.
If you purchase more than two tickets, your order will be cancelled and refunded.
Please note that we will not issue refunds, exchanges or returns on single ticket sales. All sales are final.
Bottles may be retrieved during regular brewery hours.
Bottles may be picked up at the pub only when the brewery is closed.”
