They are closer to $12-14 here in IL
Violated would be an understatement.
Well by far my most overpriced was in Vegas we got a Stone 5/5/5 which is my friend's birthday
for $75 we split it three ways so wasnt so bad
whatever happens there stays there
Sierra Nevada Ovila Dubbel 22 oz bomber bottle. $12 retail at a local liquor store.
I called it a donation as it says on the bottle that some of the proceeds go to restoring an Abbey in California.
I was expecting a lot more from a Sierra Nevada collaboration.
Anything made by Mikkeller...their beers are mediocre at best and can cost as much as $15 for a 375mL bottle.
Probably the $80 I spent on a bottle of Rare at a bar.
Naked Evil. Too damn sweet. Hopefully a couple of years on it will help.
I paid $28 for a 4 pack of BCBS, right after the release, before I knew how readily available it was going to be in the Chicago area.
Red Poppy at the same price as a 4 pack of Cuvee De Jacobins, which I found out I like better.
For 5 ounces of bolt cutter at a bar I paid $12.
Infinium and Chocolate bock were both higher than necessary
I live in PA. The amount I have to overpay for individual bottles of stuff makes me want to cry. I could probably write up quite an eye-popping list, but off the top of my head (with parenthetical reviews):
$17 for Uncle Jacob's Stout (kinda worth it)
$30 for Bolt Cutter (kinda worth it)
$27.50 for Nebraska Fathead (not worth it)
$24.50 for La Trappe barrel-aged quad (worth it)
$22 for Parabola and Sucaba (worth it)
I also paid 24 Euro for a 375ml of 3F OG Golden Blend while in Rome. SO not worth it.
I would love to make this purchase!!
Surly Darkness and most of Surly's beers...Price form Darkness was around $20-27. Don't get me wrong, it's a great and I mean great beer, but there are other Imperial Stouts that are better and way cheaper.
Brooklyn Black Ops ($11.99)
The Abyss ($13.99)
Blaecorn Unidragon (8.99)
AleSmith Speedway Stout (12.99)
BCBS ($20 for a 4pac)
Bell's Expedition Stout ($16.99 6pac)
Still think Green Flash is making a mistake of their 4-pks of West Coast IPA & Hop Head Red at $9.99 when you can get 6-pks of Two Hearted, Racer 5, & Founders Centennial for same price
But damn if Sculpin isn't amazballs! Worth every penny, especially when it's fresh.
i do travel and collect dirt from time to time. relevant indeed.
I find "The Bruery" products very over priced...
10 for Gubna is a good price.
Some of them would be worth that price, but in CA, the price is too high.
Probably MoAS at about 23-24 but anytime I pop one im glad I got a few. Well worth it.
Over $20 on a bomber or over $8 on a 12oz is too much.
Done it only once. Tart of Darkness has yet to be cracked. Coming soon to a beer review near you.
Deschutes 'The Dissident' $19 Canadian
80% of Evil Twin
Not when you can get a pound of onions for a few bucks at the market.
I just bought a bottle of Cantillon Vigneronne for $32 (Canadian). I haven't tried it yet so cannot say whether it's overpriced...
eclipse 50/50 I just can't bring myself to spend 30 bucks on it.
Your onion store is taking advantage of you.
Is California the Pennsylvania of the onion world?
Oude Tart for 20 dollars... total drain pour for 5 different people, was soooo pissed.
Interestingly enough, paid $23 for a 12oz, 3 year old North Coast Old Stock... worth every penny, holy shit.
You have to buy a case of onions at a time.
What if you only want one sandwich or fajita?
Specialty onion shop. Expect to pay $5 an onion at least.
I drank all 4 cans, and I found it to be a malt bomb. But I tasted no onions, garlic or any other kind of vegetables as other posters have mentioned in their reviews. That's strange. How can a beer tasted like onions anyway? (minus brewing with onions)
One of my local bottle shops has really good prices on some things, and ridiculous prices on others. I think I may have mentioned this in another thread.
I bought Black Ops there for $35 about a year ago. I recently got another elsewhere for $20. That irked me. Then I saw DFH Hellhound at a Wegman's for $13, right after I saw at at the bottle shop for $30. My biddy in NC grabbed a bottle of Bitches Brew for me at $13, after I saw it at that fantastic bottle shop for $35. Ugh.
Not gonna even talk about the $8 12oz bottles of Backwoods Bastard...
PA bottle shops, man. PA bottle shops.
I never bought any of these, but any high-end Italian beer seems just a smidge more money than the others.
Lmao...I mean seriously, Bobby V?? How did they think that was going to end? Ah well, it's better when the fan base is angry then more beer will be bought.
