    When I was in there last week I swear the bottle I looked at said $17.99. Great price either way, but I'm broke so I can't pull the trigger. Oh well.

    $12 is too much for FBS. Here in CT, I pay $9.99. The other two are more than reasonable though obviously, I've been paying $25 for BCBS.

    I don't think I've ever seen FBS for $10 in mass. Love it if someone can prove me wrong.

    Wegmans is the best. Only place I've found Mad Elf or Nugget Nectar (there cheese section is larger then the entire supermarket in my area).

    $30 at Blanchard's in Allston. Right around the corner from the expired sixers of Stone IPA and cans of Deviant Dale's from March. I mean, WTF?!

    Standard price was right about $12 give or take a buck, but BWX was running a $9.99 special on it since they got so much of it in. (I just double checked the email they sent)

    That said, I agree Wegman's seems to price as low as anybody.

    Black ops had an ok flavor but is so thin and for 25 at most places seems a little steep. Would much rather pick up a pack of bcbs

    yep 30 is what i paid for it last year, and i regretted all but about 10 bucks of it... pretty underwhelming beer for what you have to pony up IMO.
