    The Philadelphia area Wegmans just started selling 15 packs in their supermarkets and I am going to pick on up for the show this weekend. I think it is moderately prices because a case of cans is 32.99 (where I worked). I have to ask. Would you buy a 30 pack of Founders All Day if they sold it. Should they?

    Yes I would buy a 30 pack. I would buy it All Day.

    I live in Grand Rapids, and 15 packs are regularly on sale for less than $15. The only problem is, they don't last, I would definitely buy a 30 pack if it was less than $30.

    If i was going somewhere that necessitated a 30-pack then absolutely. I'll spend $10-15 more to not have to drink Bud light all day.

    That's waaaaay too much of a style that is low on my drinking list

    All Day has found a prominent home in my rotation lately. I would definitely buy a 30 pack if I saw one.

    No need for Session IPAs. Just grab some APAs for the same or cheaper price.

    Not many APAs are less than a 15 pack of All Day--if you know one--please suggest. I am not a big All Day fan but have lots of dedicated craft hophead friends that are. ADIPA cheaper in NC than a 12 of SNPA which is about the best deal in that style I can think of. The difference is so little it matters not to me. 30 pack--someone will buy it.

    I like a hoppy ale with low ETOH from time to time, like a Pale Ale too. Session IPAs are just a name for IPA light. Room for both.

    Founders has hit a home run with the 15 packs. Not sure if 30 packs could beat it.

    I've been to Meijer (Walmart of Michigan) twice in the last three weeks. The first time they were sold out of the 15 packs, the second time I got the last one, at a mere 8 days old.

    Man I wish I could invest in that company.

    I can't really say I think I would ever need a 30pack unless I was buying for a group. I could see myself drinking a bunch of All Day's sometime maybe, but 15pack would be more then enough as I'm not going to just drink the same beer day after day when there are so many other good beers/styles I could have instead when I want some low ABV beer

    30packs of Miller or Bud work because much of their market will be drinking same thing all weekend and then again the weekend after that, and so on

    I keep seeing too many 15 pks from August 2014. Maybe if I found a fresh one.

    No, it's not a great session IPA by my standards. I'll take Over Easy over it any day

    To drink with a group of folks on a hot summer day? Sure. To drink entirely by myself over x number of days? No. I like a little more variety over the course of drinking 30 beers (i.e., few six packs, couple four packs, an odd bomber or two).

    Not too many APAs the same price or cheaper than All Day.

    I'd buy it for sure, most likely if I was having a party.

    Hell yes. Sounds like a perfect camping/canoeing choice. 30 sessionable beers with flavor in a can. Pfffft. No brainer.

    No. If I wanted 30, I'd just buy two 15-packs.

    I'll just fill up jugs of free water and get some real beer. In my opinion session ales are craft brewers way of giving into the AAL mindset.

    Aren't most traditional German and English styles low in alcohol?

    No. Not because of the format but I just don't like All day IPA.
    Now a 30 pack of Breakfast Stout in cans, I'm on board

    Yes and Yes ... I always keep a variety in my fridge, 4 packs - 6 packs - a bomber or 2, Stouts - IPA's, ales etc. But All Day is a constant. Its my go to beer and always what I bring if I'm headed to a BBQ - party - whatever. So yes, I would def buy.

    Meh. I don't see any tits on a blanket, nor dogs behind a drum kit around them. Those poseur beers are also enabling breweries such as Founders to do the one thing whale hunters that populate this site love. Have a wider distribution footprint due to increasing their capacity because it increases the chances for these hunters, and party store stalkers to acquire their loss leader beers.
    Do tell. What exactly is a real beer? I wasn't aware good beer had a test to pass to prove its real-ness.

    Unless a 30 pack is going to save me more than $1-2 then I see no point, just buy 2 x 15 pack. The 30 packs would probably sell slowly and would end up sitting on shelves.

    I bought a 15 pack a few weeks ago. I've bought cases before. I'd buy 30.
