    Vinnie and the Russian River Cartel need to hang up their hallway monitor badges and live and let live.

    Either make more beer, or sell less of it to more people. Stop Snitching, Stop Bitching.

    I agree that stricter bottle limits would be a good start. I’ve never had it and who knows if I ever will but I’m O.K. with that. There’s plenty of other great craft beer choices that are much easier for me to obtain such as Big Bad Baptist, Pugachev’s Cobra, Chocolate Rain, Victory at Sea, Pliney the Elder & Younger, etc.

    Big Kahuna,

    I believe the quality of their beer is all that is necessary to “build the buzz.” As to “quirky,” aren’t we all quirky?

    Then RR should have stricter bottle limits.

    The overwhelming majority of people buying cases of this are buying for either resale or to trade. Allowing these people to buy cases only makes it harder for ordinary folks like me to simply buy one bottle to enjoy.

    Big Kahuna, I think you’re assuming Russian River needs and wants help with distribution. They don’t, their beer makes it everywhere Russian River wants it to be.

    The issue with illegal sales is that if someone is willing to break laws regarding the sale of items, who knows what other questionable acts they are willing to commit in the name of profit.

    Quality Control, Customer Satisfaction, a secondary market salesman craves not these things.

    I do not understand their negative attitude of someone trying to help distribute the beer to a wider audience.
    RR is a little strange that way. Always has been, always will be.
    I guess it’s their quirkiness that builds the buzz about their product.
    It got us talking about it!
