i love this beer.my favorite red but why is it 18.00dollars a 6-pack?
In my opinion, this is by far one of the worst beers I've ever had. I dont know if I had an "off" batch or what, but I know I wont be throwing my money away on it again- even at $12 a sixer..... sorry dude, but it looks to me like you've way over-paid.
This was a near drainpour for me.
Never seen it for that much, that's a complete ripoff. I probably wouldn't buy it for 8 bucks a six pack, though...
i think the beer is pretty good but rogue six packs in general are expensive. I'm the beer buyer at a liqour store in nj and our case cost is 40 bucks, so with the average retail markup of 30% it should be 12.99. you definitely overpaid and i guess the cost is on rogues side since the price seems to be high everywhere not just nj. also you dratically overpaid.
The obvious answer is because it's a Rogue beer.
That sounds like a major ripoff.. I've never seen it close to that much..
$9.99 here. That sucks.
I paid about 2.50 for a single and thought it was damn good. 12.99 for a six would be a fair price, certainly not 18 bucks.
Maybe it was aged on a rare, first-edition novel.
I like the bigger bomber style bottles just like with Mad Elf 6ers can get pretty expensive but a nice bomber does me just right price wise and drinking size wise !
1) Rogue is fairly expensive in general and 2) Your store completely ripped you off
$18!?!?!? Wow, that's evidence of inflation!!!
Wow. I'm so sorry. You contributed to Rogues Federal Reserve.
Que the next 40-50 posts about Rogue being too overpriced relative to the competition...
which I totally agree with.
I wish I could like this post twice
Dude, did you see you see the 13$ Sierra Nevada 12 packs right next to you? Bingo...
I actually really enjoy this beer and it is 8.99 in Spokane (Total Wine), for a 6 pack. Not bad, especially for Rogue
Rogue seems to have the biggest West to East coast price disparity I've ever heard of.
I always got confused when people call Rogue overpriced, 6 packs are $9 and bombers are $5 here on the best coast.
Thats almos twice what I paid!
$14.39 at The 'Garten...Last year was around $12.49 wich is just a tad over this year's cost! It has went up considerably...
NW ohio singles were about $2.50. so that $18 seems way too high
I got a single for $1.79. You got ripped off.
Damn, I just spent $16.99 on it. Didn't realize until I looked at the receipt. It never cost this much before. What gives? It's just a red ale. A fine red ale, but still....
I am only typing this much, because I think I have a minimum character to hit.
That and Yellow Snow are $16.99 where I live. I'd love to give it a try but not at that price. I like Dead Guy but its $14 a sixer. Too many other good beers for $10 a sixer.
Damn straight! I see a bunch of Rogues 11.99 six packs gathering dust at the beverage store I frequent.
Rogue is a good beer, not a great beer, and receives more love than is warranted. Over priced IMO, I enjoy their brews, but rarely buy, as I get more bang for my beer buck elsewhere. $12.99 here, is too steep for nothing overwhelming.
My local bottle shop can't give them away!
$8.99 a six pack just to clear inventory...
Sounds just about right up here in lovely Edmonton, Alberta. Sigh.
$18.99 for 6 is the same as $5.75 for a 22oz bottle. Good to keep this in perspective, since most people don't flinch at a $6 bomber. (Though with people reporting lower prices for this beer in different regions, it does seem unfortunate.)
It's Rogue, any price is too much.
That's pretty steep! Here in OH it's about $12 for a 6-pack. I don't buy Rogue often though because it's fairly average stuff as far as craft beer goes.
