  2. Ontario the same... sigh.
     
  3. $19.99/4 pack BCBS. Not an amazing deal, but still the best price I've heard of.
     
  4. Around here we can get Victory Helios bombers for $3.79. One of the cheapest bombers in the state of PA.

    Last year I found a place selling FSW anniversary (15 I think) for the same $11.99 they were selling the regular released for. Between a friend and myself we cleaned them out.
    Year in and tear out thought, I think the Trader Joe's / Unibrau Vintage ale is one of the best deals going. $6 for a 750 c&c of (usually) damn good beer... I grabbed 6 origianally and I'm going to be there tonight. I'll grab a coupe more if it's still there.

    Best: Founders Bolt Cutter, yesterday $19.99 a bottle. Significantly cheaper then the taproom at $26. I also found CBS in a random/crappy college liquor store in Dec. of last year for $22. Not a steal but finding it that late was crazy.

    Worst: KBS, late in the season (July), at $9.99 a bottle.

    I picked up a few bottles of Harpoon's 100 Barrel Series #44 El Triunfo Coffee Porter at the brewery for only $6.99 a bottle. Can't beat that price for a bomber of this quality.

    A buddy of mine was at the Air Force base in Tampa and got 5 bottles of 2011 DFH 120 for just under $3 each. Now that was a deal.

    here in NY, NOTHING is ever "underpriced"! The best deals the stores ever offer on sale is always just the regular price that most of the country pays. A steal deal for me is full retail price for people in south and midwest.

    When I go back to Michigan there is a small bottle shop that also has Expedition for $9.99. In fact most of the stuff they get from Bell's, Founders, Great Lakes is $9.99 - not sure if its a great deal but it makes it easy.

    I just picked up a La Trappe gift pack at a random little place. 2012 bottles, two Quads and two Isis D'Ors, plus a chalice, for $8.99. Our COST on the pack is $16.80.

    Score.

  25. For like over a year a store around here had bombers of Yeti mispriced at $2.99, man that was nice, but it really makes buying anything else a little more difficult.

    Have a local place that does fire sales and have gotten many incredible bargains, such as Ommegang gift sets, nine bombers and 3 glass3s (want some) for $13.
     
  28. 4.99 12 packs of Paulaner Oktoberfest. Not expired but a distributor got bought out so they are clearing tons of stock. Needless to say It is Oktoberfest in my house!

    If you have a sweet hook up cases of short fills for half price are always a great deal. Thank you Lakefront!

  32. Local liquor store has Bell's Expedition Stout and Third Coast Ale in their mix 6 section which cost $10.99 per 6 pack, they carry six packs of those beers for $16.99, so VIOLA! six dollar savings! I wonder if they will ever catch on...I hope they don't come here.

    also got Cuvee de jacobins 2.99 bottle
