Exactly my answer
Wouldn't know. I don't buy expensive beers, so I haven't tasted them. Too many good beers available at reasonable prices to take a crapshoot on a pricey beer I haven't tried.
For real. I get it for like $8-9/4-pack. One of the best values in craft imo.
Cantillion. Do you know how much a plane ticket to fly across the Atlantic is these days!?
It's $14 in WI.
Scaldis Prestige de Nuits and BFM Abbaye de St. Bon Chien.
Love them both dearly and let them sit on shelves every time.
How about the whole 50/50 Eclipse series? The Elijah Craig 12 this year was fantastic, but I won't be dropping 30$ on another bottle. One and done.
Black Damnation - Saw a bottle and just couldnt get past the upwards of 70 bucks price tag
Madame Rose. Truly a phenomenal beer but at $20 or so a bottle I can't pull the trigger more than once or twice a year.
I would like to try more stuff from "The Bruery"................. but damn their prices are steep!
Rogue Double Chocolate Stout
Cantillon, as others said.
Anything Swiss...Abbaye de Saint Bon-Chien and Brasserie Trois Dames, for example.
Ten Fidy for sure.
Someone already beat me to it, but Black Betty. Tried it. Liked it. But $30 liked it? Not so much.
V, saw it in Amsterdam but just couldn't say yes
Pretty much everything Rogue makes.
How much are you paying for Ten Fidy? Getting it around these parts for about $12 or $13 per 4 pack.
$12?? Your store must not know anything about what they are selling.
I've lived in CO most of my life and on average at least $16 a 4 pack.
I am still relatively new to this and i have a questions
What does the BA stand for for Old Rasputin?
BA = barrel aged.
I really wish these two in particular were cheaper, but I dont think I ever look at the price on Dreadnaught. i will check the price on APW and then somehow justify the price. With that being said Dreadnaught is my favorite beer and I have a hard time finding it around here.
Thank you. I realized that after i read a few more posts.
I'd love to pay less for it but I think it slays Hopslam for $5 bucks less, its available year round and 2 of my favorite watering holes sell it for $5 a pint. Now that I can buy fresh sixpacks and not dusty bombers it has vaulted to the top of my list of available ipa's I can get my hands on..........
I've never had it but how about Brew Dog's "Sink the Bismarck?" $110? Seriously? With the ABV it has is this even really "beer?"
have had BORIS, DORIS and Hop Dam and while they are all good, there are better for cheaper
Bruery, except Rugbrod, love it and a fair price
I picked those three because they are fair comparisons to Ten Fidy, IMO. The 8.99 22oz Czar is ~$0.41 per ounce. Ten Fidy (@14.99/4 pack) is ~$0.31 per ounce. That puts the Czar at equivalent to ~$19.50/four pack.
I'm glad to have Ten Fidy in a flexible format at a reasonable price per ounce. I Wish more breweries would put solid Imperial Stouts in 4 or 6 packs at that price point.
It's been said before, but an $8 bomber isn't terrible for something of TF caliber.
Point proven on Ten Fidy. It's actually $15.99/4-pack near me, but that still puts it at about $0.33/oz. Plus, I doubt I'm going to enjoy The Czar as much. Bombers vs. 4-pack cans must be some sort of optical illusion to me.
I'll do my best to justify it to say that I'm kind of a 'ticker'; so the less I can spend on a single beer experience, the better. If they sold Ten Fidy in a $9 bomber, I'd buy it over the 4-pack. Although, I like the 4-pack for laying down a couple.
Either way, no points this round for me. I'll omit it from my original list. Perhaps, the REAL reason I've been straying from buying it is because I still have a couple in the cellar to enjoy.
I suppose. I wish they made smaller bottles or four-packs though. I can't get Hopslam (even though I have some I got in a trade), but I have access to other year round IPAs that I'd rather buy.
It is a bargain at that price, so good.
If a beer is REALLY expensive I will usually buy it once and hope that it's not something I'll feel the need to have again. Bought Utopias in 09 and enjoyed it BUT the odds of me ever buying it again are very slim.
I feel Evil Twin is too expensive to buy by the bottle as well. So I make sure to grab it if it's ever on draft somewhere during a happy hour or something. There are plenty more out there that are cost too much but can't think of them off hand.
I would say things like Utopias. I was able to try some of the most recent vintage and it was amazing, but that is some serious coin for "beer".
Some places trying to sell it for $299 near me! I'd rather have Johnny Blue and Jose Family Especial, and still have some $ left over for some fine craft brew!
i agree with what most people have already mentioned...
Mikkeller (every brew)
Lost Abbey (mainly Deliverance and there 375 ml bottles)
