    Hopefully 6x12oz or 12 packs. Love the beer, but I’d imagine the 4x12oz format is the reason I see it collecting dust so often...

    I hope you are correct here.

    As a consumer I am not a fan of the 4-pack format. I recognize why brewery owners have a differing opinion on this matter.

    Cheers!

    And the price, $11-14 a four pack is not a good price. Even by the case it’s close to $60 incl tax.

    Enjoy

    Might just be a Boston thing, but Allagash White has also become a premium priced beer on draft here. Seeing $9 for White which is outrageous for a brewery that produces at their scale.

    Ah, I 'member Cappy’s in Camden, Maine, with Allagash White and Black on tap next to each other at four bucks a throw....

    Yeah I’ve noticed that too, it’s priced as a “premium” across the board on tap, which makes me believe it’s not a case of greedy publicans but high keg prices. Which is a shame because I like it as an everyday drinker, but certainly not a special beer by any measure.

    1/6 keg is $95 plus tax here. You get about 40 pints per keg. Not sure how much spill there will be. Either way at $9 a pint the bar is making a ton of $.

    Is it a true pint or the Cheater pints we have around here that are closer to 12oz and then add head and you get a 10oz pour.

    Just another reason I don’t go to bars anymore

    Enjoy

    Needless to say it is entirely your choice to no longer go to bars but you can be selective in which bars you do go to. I personally only go to bars that serve a "true pint" (i.e., 16 ounce glasses). These bars are not difficult to find.

    Just to state the obvious: those draft pints are not priced at 1-2 dollars.

    Cheers!

    Love the beer, love cans, but I'm perfectly happy with 12 ounces. I'll buy these for outdoor activities
