How much does a 3-Liter of Black Note go for?

    1 liter = approximately 3 12 oz. bottles.

    One 12 oz. bottle averages about $8 in Chicago. (Though retail per four pack at Binny's on their website is $24.99)

    9 bottles (approximately 3L) x $8 = $72

    As a result of the scarcity of the large format bottle, assume at least a premium of 100%.

    The bottle will sell for upwards of $200+ under these assumptions.

  4. I talked to someone today that said they were willing to pay 5 bills for it, I was shocked, and at the same time I wasn't. Still debating whether I go or not.

    Based on the comments, I would like to revise the rational calculation of "$200+" to conclude that the bottle will sell for around $500-$550.

  8. But seriously since its for charity I wouldn't be surprised if it was over $1000.

    I agree. If I had the money, I would spend a lot more on something like that if the money was going to the right charity, than if Bell's sold them at the brewery. I don't like when there are articles that talk about the worlds most expensive beers and include ones that were sold at auctions that benefit charities. It just isnt the same thing.

    I would assume about the same, but I don't think Bell's should disclose how much it went for. Talk about a frenzy and all the "Well the 3 liter bottle sold for a grand, therefore my 12 oz. bottle is worth...."

    $118.81?
  13. Shoo65

    Shoo65 Savant (270) Indiana Oct 23, 2011

    Thats what I came up with...
  14. I would have paid around $500 for it so I agree with your assumption. :)

    I'm gunna guess $325
  16. So if 100 BA's throw in $10 each, they would all get 1 oz! :p
  17. Of course it would taste much better because it cost $1000.

    Nobody has mentioned this but I also think its possible that whoever buys this may have never even had the beer. Maybe never even heard of it. Just buying something at a charity event.

  21. I would gladly pay $500 for this, charity and all, but guessing more along the lines of $750 - 1,000

    I bet it sells for $1,050.

    Let me think about this...

    4 pack = 48 oz. @ $23 = ~$0.48 per oz.

    750 ml bottle = 25.4 oz @ $23 = ~$0.91 per oz.

    That's about a 90% increase

    3000ml bottle = (101.6 oz @ ~$0.91 per oz.) * 1.9 = ~$175.76

    That was fun!

    Anyone know the final amount these bottles went for? We had to leave about 3 before bidding started. Sick taplist and overall really cool event (plus a badass glass to boot)!

    Dave and his wife always bring their kids to beer releases. It's not like this event was outside in the cold or anything. Some people are just assholes (not referring to you, steebo). People need to keep snarky comments to themselves.
