    No more than on the West Coast. $15 brewery / $17 retail. It isn't worth any more than that.

    In PA at my local shop they're asking at least $30 a bottle... I refuse to ever buy it again because of the increase since last year when I paid $18 at a bar. It's a great beer but not worth that much in my opinion.

    I would never go to that shop again.

    If they were 2011 I would say go for it. The 2012 weren't as tasty.

    PA's prices strike again! Southampton Beer Store wanted $23 for it.

    I paid $17/375 ml, 2012. It must have been a bad bottle because it tasted like a lager - nothing even close to a Flander's red. Big waste of my money (for me, that's a splurge). Very disappointed. Will somebody please tell me it was a bad bottle??

    It's not the store, many other beers in that place are very well priced. It just seems to be Lost Abbey and a few others that are outrageous.

    hahaha. there doesn't seem to be many of these sitting around anywhere else. is it worth just picking up and letting them age for a bit
