    No, unless you got lots of $$$. I could get 10 cans of Heady instead. Or, 6 BCBS, or two BC variants, or a lot of stuff. Make your $30 work for you, not you for it.

    BCBS and its variants >>>>>>>>>> Eclipse any day of the week. Eclipse pricing is silly.

    I wish we had more top-tier BA stouts around here to drive Fifty Fifty's pricing down. Once BCBS hits the left coast again, those jokers are in trouble.

    If you can afford it, yes. I think they are excellent. Are they overpriced at $33 sure but i'd say it's worth trying at least once and if you can afford it, why not. This is the second year I've purchased them through futures (Cheaper). I have no regrets and will be purchasing them next year.

    I am going to have to agree with this, unless it's a '10.

    Not for $30. Good beer for $20 though.

    Just repeating what others have said above - EC 18 was solid. I wouldn't pay 30 bucks for it though.

    BCBCS is worth $30! Luckily it's only 15-20!
    A better question might be:
    Which beers are worth $30 but cost substantially less.
