Trip to VT including Heady hunt, HF, craft beer store, and close with Tree House. About $800
I spent around $250 at both Toppling Goliath and Three Floyd's when I visited those iconic breweries. The only reason it wasn't more is I maxed out my purchases at both, which su-ucked big time. I was ready to take out a small business loan.
Should we just retitle this thread
"WHOSE GOT THE BIGGEST D......."?
I'm keeping myself in the dark!!
It happens a few times a year, though it's usually nowhere near that much beer. My guess is that he was on vacation and was loading up on stuff to bring back for his local beer drinking buddies. Now that Cascade has stopped shipping we're selling a hell of a lot more of their beer, especially to visitors from out of town.
One other possibility is that the guy owns/runs a beer store in Washington DC and was driving across the country loading up on stuff to sell back there.
True, but then I end up storing in the attic and wrecking alot of good beer.
A couple of years ago my family flew to Minneapolis for a family reunion and rented a car to drive back so that we could see Mount Rushmore on the way home. We stopped in at France 44 and I ended up spending about $1200.00. The fun part of the story is that when the cashier was ringing me up and the total was already over $600, the manager started to pay attention, and then called to the back to see if there was anything special they could let me buy. I already had a case of Surly Seviin, but he added two bottles of Darkness, two bottles of Pentagram, a Westvleteren 12, and maybe something else. The amount I payed sounds silly, but being this far West, half of what I read on this site is just names that I'll never see, so when I had the chance...
about $300 after stumbling upon a decent selection of cantillon, 3f, and other harder to get sours
Most my SO knows I spent on beer $80
Most I have spent on beer really $200 a few times. Spent a month in Santa Rosa Russian River kills the wallet
My haul from Belgium 2 years ago. This was an absolute logistic nightmare to bring back home....and it hurt the wallet quite a bit.
I dig the wood work on your table. Jade plant looks nice too!
Every first Monday of the month can run $100-225 depending on Bruery Hoarder allocation
Around $600.. $350 at HF followed by 2 cases of heady for $160, then another $100 at the co-op on sip o sun and some other bottles and cheeses.. Just a regular VT haul ; )
$530. Took about 20 minutes in a liquor store. Various good brews with multiples.
I think I spent about $75 on a few 4 packs in Minnesota. Picked up Surly Furious and Abrassive as well as Osker Blues Ted Fidy and their Red IPA add in a couple bomber bottles and I thought it was worth every penny.
I try not to do "hauls" these days. I pretty much prefer to buy a couple things for immediate consumption, and let tomrrow be a new adventure.
Why? Because if I'm all stocked up with supergood beer I'm prone to drinking it all quicker than i should. I can easily let the day get away from me.
I guess I bought a case of Ten Fidy for 105 dollars a few years ago, but nobody was selling it in 4packs or singles around here and I really wanted it.
Another time i spent $75 on a mixed 12 pack and felt like a dickweed.
BTW, to the other posters in this thread: Ya'll Be Ballin'!
I suppose that is reasonable then.
RR during SF beer week. That darn Younger helped convinced me it was a good idea to buy a 12 pack of his older brother, sixer of Blind Pig, 8 supplications & 4 consecrations. Wife wasn't too stoked with the $300+ I spent...but well worth it!
i would say around 750 bucks for one of my Upland Society allocations, which happens 4 times a year. Lucky for me I share with my friends and recoup most of that cost. 750 bucks for 24 beers.
It wasn't all for me, but I spent a little over $900 at Ozark Beer Company on 7 cases of BDCS and some 6 packs of their Belgian Ale.
$724 between my friend and I at the latest East End Gratitude release.
You do the math !
And then factor in lunch, 4 - 5 pints each guy ( my wonderful wife is our designated driver ).
I really don't want to think about it too hard
Mother of all that's holy ....$31.25 a beer
A need a moment...
Ok I was a bit off, I was shooting from the hip, typical haul is 24 - 30 beers @ 25 bucks a pop with the great Indiana tax of 9% on it so that's $27.25 a beer.
Oh, you had me worried. That's so much better
Actually, who's kidding who ? I go to Rare Barrel and buy a case of Home Sour Home and don't even think about it being $300 so i take back my sarcastic comments. Hurleymanvw, you have my apologies !!
Russian rover has taken me on a lot
Beatification release ran me close to 400
Eclipse has done damage too!
$400 on pappy eclipse
The bruery has ran up allocations into the $300
Man this thread is killing me lol
Most recent spend on cases of Lamvinus and Fou set me back about the equivalent of $750.
And I´m going back in October....
I guess this was my biggest almost three cases BSBS 14 not shown some FW Stickee Monkee, Older Yeti, and a few others..........
Thanks!! I just have to stick to my budget spreadsheet. It all looks good on paper, and the feeling is great!
edit: althought I was near Philly for the 4th, and spent $50 on a mix-a-six. Of course it did include a $20 Red Poppy and $10 Damnation.
Last year probably spent $800-$1000 on a VT beer haul. I drank pretty well for the next few months.
I went through 4 cases of zombie dust in the summer of 2012 (you could almost always get it at the brewpub then, before this current madness), and it still wasn't enough. I definitely felt sad polishing off my last bottle. Man I love that beer.
I buy all the beer for parties at my Fraternity, for the big ones we drop around $4000, however the beer tastes like piss.
God, this is one of the worst threads I've ever seen.
Does that place happen to be called Bierhalle Deconinck. Damn that place...perhaps one of the best drink markets in all of Belgium. That place will drain your wallet dry
Did a trip up to VT last November and got 2 cases of Heady plus a few four packs, a case of Fiddlehead Mastermind and 3 growlers from HF plus a bottle of Edward and Sue. Easily $500 for the entire haul.
Then perhaps you should post elsewhere about how you only buy good, cheap local beers while the rest of us enjoy this one.
$2500 at the Kuhnhenn's winter solstice party - Worth every penny.
I chuckle when people say their girlfriends get upset.
You're not even married.
My wife has no issue with whatever I buy.
New Glarus, WI
Case of Thumbprint assort.
Case of other stuff assort.
Case of Staghorn
6 assort. bottles of fruity stuff.
Was priceless. Okay, it was north of a $100 but less than $200.
It'll be more next time
