    Is it illegal to sell hopslam for 24.99 a six pack? The store a block from my place in St. Louis Missouri is...
     
  2. They can sell it for whatever price they want. The brewery/distributors set the MSRP, but thats just what it is...suggested price.
     
  3. I passed at $22 a sixer here. I bought a case of flower power for the price of two sixers of hopslam.

    Enjoy
     
  4. it is not ,, Caveat Emptor

    Not illegal, but me thinks it teeters on unethical.

    I had to pay that once! I got it for $16.99 this year.
     
  8. WOW, I think I could ship from Milwaukee all in for about that. $15.99 here a sixer.

    But the irony is lots of people wouldn't blink at paying ten dollars for a bomber

    Where are you at in St. Louis. I live in the Affton area and would like to get a hold of this stuff(not that I want to pay that much). Also, (off topic) have you heard of BA Bigfoot anywhere? I've asked around at Friar Tuck to no avail on a date.
     
  12. How so? I don't want to pay astronomic amounts either, but the consequence of not having a free market is far worst. No ethics involved. If people wouldn't pay it, business wouldn't charge it.

    What's the name of the store? I'll be sure to avoid them.

    I bought my 2 six packs of Hopslam for $17.99 each at Friar Tuck in O'Fallon.
     
  15. $22 a 6'er in south central VA...but that does include tax! Up about $4 from last year. Shrug.

    It was at Starr's off of Big Bend & 40. I have saw a lot of the Bigfoot 2012 but I have not noticed the BA version.

    Illegal? No. But I wouldn't pay that much for Hopslam. Here in Ohio it's usually around $17.99 a sixer.

  19. And I thought $14 for a 6er of Nugget Nectar was bad!

    It should be illegal to sell it at 17.99/sixer but whatever...

    No but it should be illegal to pay $24.99 for a 6 pack of Hopslam.

  23. We don't get a chance to sell Hopslam around here but unfortunately.. As long as its above the price the store paid for it.. It is indeed legal.

    Although it's not illegal, that is criminal!

    we paid $20 in AZ at some places and (used to getting plunged in the bum as we are) still thought that was pretty high
    But $24? dammmmnnnn....
     
  26. At my store.. I try to keep everything priced atleast even with our competition if not less

  27. Paid $20 a piece for two. Could have gotten a case for $65, but didn't wanna buy it all up
     
  28. It would only be illegal if it were out of date.

    Yes, Title XIII, Chap. 127, Sec A specifically prohibits the sale of Hopslam at any price higher than $20 a 6-pack.
     
  30. Between $19-21 bucks in southern Indiana. Hopslam has nearly reached its max price for me.
     
  31. My local bottle shop was selling singles for $7 and six packs for $42.

    This seems pretty uncommon but I got six packs at $13.50 a piece.

  34. Yeah tell me about it. I still bought a single to see what all the hype was about.

    jasoncheb Aficionado (190) Virginia Nov 23, 2012

    $19.99/6 pack in virginia beach area. Anything more than that is rediculous for this beer.
     
  36. After finishing off a sixer of Hopslam this past week, I gotta say.. not worth more than $12.99.
     
  37. DStoked

    DStoked Savant (330) Ohio Sep 28, 2011

    In Ohio, $13 for NN, $18 for Hopslam.

    DStoked Savant (330) Ohio Sep 28, 2011

    Both of which are outrageous by the way, when you can get Sucks for $9.99
     
  39. hmmm, Hopslam or Rochefort
    decisions
