    $67.39 after tax.

    As a pretty much broke college student, I feel like that's up there

    On my birthday every year I go on a beer purchasing quest and come home with close to $300 worth.

    On a single haul ~$80 or so. My normal runs are $10-$20.
  4. over $1000 on a VT run. apparently my old record of 38 bomber fills at Hill Farmstead was broken. Though the beer was split between about 12 different people.

    Sometimes when I go to CCB, I just can't help myself and spend upwards of 100 bucks there, then usually another 50 between Total Wine and Whole Foods.

  6. I think DaveHack just spent $300 on Ephraim alone at HF this weekend. Then bought about 14 cases of Heady, cleaned the Warren store out of anything with "Lawson's" printed on it, bought north of 80 bottles at HF, another 40 growlers not called Ephraim, and then handbottled half the shit they served the evening of the VIP event. I'm sure I'm missing some other things too.

    OMG this "DaveHack" sounds like a total hoarder who should learn to leave some on the shelves for others! GEEZUS!

    $300 or so. This year's HotD dock sale will most likely change that.

    I spent around $500 at the Livery anniversary party, but that was bottles, draft, and food.

    Around $150 at Brusin' Ales in Asheville, NC. Worth every nickel!

  18. Man, some of your "hauls" pale in comparison to what I've spent on ONE bottle.

    I need help
  19. What the hell did you do? Grab her purse and make a run for the check-out?

    Around $650 or so - Miraculously, when I was picking up KH last year, I saw 6 GI Rare's, 2 CBS's and some Blushing Monk sitting in the corner. It needed a good home.

    Depending on how you define "haul" it was about $1,200. These days it's pretty much $40-50 for a case of some IPA, or about $200 for a bunch of lambics online.
  22. One time I spent $70. That was on spring break because I wasn't going very far and needed to celebrate.

    In one day I spent about $150 at few different stores and my average hall is roughly $55 since I can only make it to the good bottle store every other week with work and travel constraints.

    $843.88 so far this year (5 hauls) from the only beer store worth it's salt in a 30 some mile radius.

    Considering where I live, it's actually the only one.

    Heres what my 250 dollars looks like from IN last year. I may or may not have broken that later on, but I know for sure this was a huge haul: I hit maybe 5-6 awesome stores I knew of in Ft Wayne.







    Only beer left out of all that is HotD, Hardy's and Yeti(2.5 year old bottle, will probably open on a special occasion when I see fit) Also Founders RIS. I have 2 4 packs currently lol

    Most at one time was $300, on a trip to San Diego. Too much stuff we just dont get in TX. Normal shopping day is 50-75

    The dollar doesn't matter! What was it that was in the back seat, that had you all jacked up to get to your storage place at the House??!!

    That's 1/2 the game! The "Chase"!

    Went to Philly on the way to DFH and spent around $350 on beers we can't get in Buffalo. Normal trip to the store, about $50-$75. Going to Vermont in November....going to be expensive :)

    Bout $100 bucks on my days off.... When i'm not working I tend to go beer shopping...
  35. It's not too uncommon for me to hit $130-150. I've gone as high as about $300 on weekend vacations when I hit up a few stores to stock up on stuff that doesn't get GA distribution.

    DogfishJoe Savant (480) Ohio Feb 14, 2010

    I plan on spending a lot on my birthday this year maybe $150
  37. About $400 (after coupons) during my vacation last month. Before that it has been a couple of $100-150 hauls.
  38. Most I have spent on beer in a single haul was around $450 on 2 bottles of Utopias.
  39. Next time take some friends to distract her and then pay with cash. :p
