    is it just me or are cascade bottles getting more and more expensive. $30 seems ridiculous. I thought $25 was when they hit that.

    Prices have been too high for a while now. Its why there are still bottles available from releases early in the year. What I don't understand is why they put 4-bottle limits on a beer that's been available at the barrel room for 4 or 5 months. What purpose does a limit serve when the beer isn't selling?

    Artificial scarcity? That's the only thing I can think of, whenever I stop by and still see bottles of Manhattan available (was orginally told they did not expect this beer to be available for more than a couple months).

    I know that the assumption I make when I see a 4 bottle limit is that I need to buy some soon before they run out. Maybe that helps to drive sales?

    I do know this... they're pretty serious about the 4 bottle limit. I was picking up a purchase for some friends of mine back East, and the combined order included 5 bottles of Tangerine Dream. The bartender would absolutely not make an exception for me (even though I was buying roughly $500 of beer), even though she readily acknowledged that I could come back later that afternoon, or later that week and just pick up some more then.

    Shrug. It is what it is I guess.

    Bottles are 20-30 each because there are still people that will go in and drop 500$. I'm sure they would rather sell 30$ bottles over 6 months than the same number of 15$ bottles in one day.
