The founder of a niche site, BeerAuctions.com, wrote into BeerPulse with those words tonight.
Indeed, rumors are circulating on the message boards that eBay is now pulling certain craft beer listings from the website, recognizing that the liquid inside is what is driving the beer auctions and not the “collectibility” of the container.
Beer listings from a number of breweries including Cantillon appeared to be taken down on Sunday though some listings have since gone up in their place with emphasized language as to why the bottle is collectible.
HIll Farmstead’s latest Facebook status page reads, “Amazing? All of our beers and those of our respected colleagues have been removed from eBay!?” Hill Farmstead was recently in the spotlight here for comments made against eBay sales.
BeerPulse has a request out to eBay for confirmation though, it being late Sunday night, the company didn’t respond immediately to the rumors.
