    Make the one time investment in a kegerator, and buy it by the keg. It'll hold up if you drink enough.

    If you like Duvel, (easy to like) I'd suggest trying some belgian blondes like leffe and affligem blonde (my favorite). They arent' quite as strong, but are pretty similar and are even easier to drink in quantity. You'll spend about 10 bucks for a sixer.

    It's unlikely you're in the distro area (CT, maybe RI), but New England Brewing Co.'s 668 Neighbor of the Beast is a top-notch BSPA.

    Since you are new to craft beer snobbery, I would say to start trying even more beers and who knows, maybe your Duvel killer would be more affordable.

    Duvel isn't sold by the keg. The version they keg is a different beer. Not nearly as good. Goes by the name of Duvel Green or Duvel single.
