Short and sweet. If there's a new beer I want to try, I don't care how much it costs, I'll pay whatever it costs .... once [channeling Johnny Dangerously here]. If it's overpriced, and unless it's extraordinary, I won't buy it again but I will let someone who wants to buy me a present know. Unless of course, it's a rare or special occasion and I want to treat myself. For my everyday enjoyment, I tend to stick to reasonably priced beers, avoid bombers and generally avoid anything over the $13 6-pack or $10 4-pack. Anybody else out there want to share their purchasing habits?
