    What comes to mind is Bear Republic:

    Red Rocket Ale
    Big Bear Black Stout
    Racer 5
    Hop Rod Rye

    I seem to remember paying maybe $6 or less for any of these.

    Your brewery of choice?

    Lagunitas Hop Stoopid is widely regarded as the best deal in a Bomber. I would through La Fin Du Monde in the ring as well. I have seen both as low as $3.99 a bottle before.

    Definitely- at least a buck cheaper.

    Stone prices aren't too bad either, gotta love that Smoked Porter.

    Sculpin is less than half as much if you get it in a six-pack though.

    Berkshire Brewing - RIS for $4 is a great deal and most of their bombers are ~$3.50
    And I'll second Victory Helios and Smuttynose

    Lagunitas and Stone. Both of them price their bombers very well. I just bought a Hop Stoopid a couple of days ago for $4.99.

    Pipeworks! Easily. The top bomber is 13.99 for an imperial Russian. Not only that, the things for 9.99 and 8.99 are all rated by users in the 90s. All quality stuff. Stouts to ipas to berliner to belgian. Never feel guily buying

    Lagunitas...Stone...

    I was actually just thinking about this today. I've enjoyed all of the Lagunitas bombers I've had.(Hop Stoopid, Maximus, Cappucino Stout)

    Stone is great. 6.99 is reasonable. All around better than Lagunitas or Bear Republic.

    this right here the espresso stout is a steal and the vertical epic 12 12 12 is good as well

    If Smuttynose made bombers of their regular releases at a price-point relative to to their sixer prices, it would be Smutty. If those prices were relative to their 12-pack prices, there would be no question.

    At 22 oz... compared to the average 6-pack, none of these presents any sort of savings. Quite the contrary. I really don't get this whole sub-culture. Is it for people who don't own a refrigerator?

    Cheap bomber? I think there was one called Hop Stoopid, but only relative to other bombers.

    Lagunitas, Stone, Bear Republic, all from CA. Don't forget Cali-Belgique @ $4ish and Big Bear Black Stout at $5.
    New Belgium has cheap, good bombers pop up occasionally. I've never seen La Fin du Monde for $4, but I'd buy a case at that price.

    Agree with migwell above, I go for 6ers (or 4pk) when possible.

    Not widespread but the first thing that came to mind for me was Midnight Sun. 3.99 for a good coffee porter and $10-11 for a barrel aged barelywine amongst others of exceedingly superior quality.
