    I paid about $90 (70 euro) for a bottle of Crianza from DHVL. And on the same trip I spent about $115 for a bottle of Blauw at Akkurat. Actually had a few more bottles like that at Akkurat too - Reed Gueuze Muscat and Pinot Noir, Millennium Geuze, 50th Anniversary, and Roze.

    27 on Eclipse. Wouldn't do it again... but at the time sounded like a good idea...

    Paid $30 for an '11 BA Old Ruffian two weeks ago. I hope it's worth it...

    $55 for Narke Kaggen! Stormaktsporter at Akkurat. Worth every penny. Though the same night I had Westvleteren 6 (as in not the blonde, but 6) and Narke Cognac Stormaktsporter, and they were just a little less.

    Black Tuesday was $30 plus a toy for their toy drive; I forget how much that was. I think I paid ~$40 for Levud's.

    Blabaer was no charity either. I think Cable Car Kriek at Toronado was $55?

    I've had the opportunity to buy Utopias many times and no part of me has ever wanted to do so.

    BCBS Rare. $50 was the value for it in a $4$ trade amoungst other goodies.

    Would I buy it again? Yes. But only one more.

    2008 was a fantastic vintage year for that beer wheather standard BCBS or Rare.

    $260 for a Sam Adams Utopias 10th Anniversary. I still have to open it to see if it was worth it.

    Think mine was $30 for Black Tuesday

    Price per ounce on some of the Evil Twins is pushing it though, Auld Yin and others being 12oz for $13

    I love WWS. I have plenty of BCBS that I would switch out for it for sure.

    Cantillon Classic Gueze for $17 and a Brewdog Tokio for $12. Pretty weak compared to what I've been seeing in this thread.

    I paid $20 for about 1.5 oz of 1983 Dirty Horse. Most I've paid per ounce, I'm sure.

    50/50 Eclipse Elijah Craig 12 Year. I bought it Friday overjoyed because I thought I nailed a job interview, and was going to celebrate by having it. Well, I didn't get the job. So I'm saving it for a special occasion. Just drinking it willy nilly will take away the reason I bought it to begin with.

    $22 Tart of Darkness at a shop. $25 Moat Water at a bar.

    A $35 Drie Fonteinen Schaerbeekse Kriek caught my eye the other day. I really wanted to have it, but I just couldn't spend that much on a beer. Maybe some day after I graduate college and am (hopefully) making some good money, I will buy stuff like that.

    A place near me had that for like 45 bucks! I went there the other day, and noticed a sales tag on it. They keep rare beers behind the counter so the clerk brought it to me, and it dropped to 24.99. I grabbed it.

    Damn. Was that aged at all? It's usually 8-11 here fresh.

    $20 for CCB BA Big Sound although I did spend $25 on a 4-banger of BCBS

    Don't think I'll go any higher than that.

    I have seen you mention the price tag on the 08 BCBS before and I am kinda disappointed in Toro's pricing - I paid $12 for one the day of the shit show at Alesmith when they released 2009 BA Speedway. Can't say I am surprised though, the price of 08 Abyss went from $40 to something like $80 overnight.

    Anyways for me it was $75 for Veritas 004 at the 2011 FdA release. Worth every penny.

    At a bar - $45 for a vintage Anchor OSA magnum to split amongst friends.

    At a store - $30 or so for Brandy Eclipse.

    Paid $120 for a bottle of Tactical Nuclear Penguin while at San Diego Beer Week (and that purchase was NON alcohol induced I may add which makes me either impulsive or dumber than the average Joe...probably a little of both). :confused:

    I bought a Midnight Sun M for $1500+.... Not really.

    seriously, probably a Chimay Speciale Cent Ciquante (150th Anniversary) or Bolt Cutter
