    Spent $390 for 3 cases of BBPt5. So there's that.

    In 2012 I drove to California via Colorado for a hiking trip and between the bottle shops in Cali and Denver I know I dropped over $500 combined. I was a noob and made every rookie mistake imaginable including buying a lot of malt bomb IPAs.

    Didn't say that.

    I certainly spend a lot of beer, definitely way too much. But the dickswing nature of this thread is kind of unpleasant.

    Do those places normally have Heady? Taking a road trip in August...

    I feel like everyone's got Heady in northern VT. If you're looking for cases I think that Vermont Beverage Warehouse sells them on Thursdays until they're gone. Check their FB.

    1. Maybe $45, and that even seems a touch high

    2. Bookmarking this thread to

    a. Make myself feel better when I spend $45

    b. Show my wife when she calls me out on spending $45



    *edit - If I break up my purchases over a few days I tend to feel less "naughty"

    Probably around $300 when I went to Treehouse, then hit MBC for Dinner. Also stopped at Aeronaut, Night Shift (my brother bought beer there) and Trillium.

    Will hopefully head to HF at the end of the month. Planning on staying around $100 and then other purchases while up there (Heady, hopefully SOS, etc.).

    A full case of Bourbon County Rare at a cost of a little over 500 bucks.

    Honorable mention goes to my visit to Hill Farmstead last summer; that was around 400 bucks for everything.

    A few years back when I was first getting into craft, I used to hit places like State Line Liquors and Capones for $200-300 at least once or twice a month. With all of the local releases and societies nowadays, I never get the chance to do that anymore.

    About to drop 1k on a fridge full of beer. Most of it is great stuff, just hoping it's worth it

    Sadly it was not Deconinck... I've heard good things about that place. I've stopped at a variety of warehouses over all the trips... Brasserie Vanuxeem was probably the most common

    Everytime I go to FFF I spend $100. Black Friday this past year spent $200 by 9AM on Bourbon County and variants. Worth it!

    Not sure I get it.
    A wife would have more "power" to veto a purchase than someones girlfriend.
    My wife loves beer.

    I bought 22 home sour homes a month or so ago but only 3 were for me so I guess that doesn't count.

    Probably about 400 dollars at Russian River on 2.5 cases of batch 5 beatification. I knew it would age well and I drove like 8 hours with my brother. Still have half a case left. Would do it again in a heartbeat.

    I spent $41 yesterday evening and felt *really* uncomfortable that it slipped above the $30's.

    On the plus side, my wife was really happy I stumbled across a 12 pack of Third Street Hunny Do cans (which isn't rare / exclusive, we just don't see much of it and she likes the beer).

    But I agree, I'd feel a lot better doing multiple $20 purchases than a single $70 purchase.

    Spent about $112 at Hill Farmstead two weeks ago, but if you add the case of 2nd fiddle and Heady I got that week too at ~$75 each, plus a few other beers from Vermont that week, I reached a lil over $300.

    I dropped $120 on BA Abraxas last year. PN3 release was 6 bottles x $30 if I remember correctly.

    Outside of those, I usually stay below $100, unless I find a bottle of whiskey to put in the cart. That usually gets me.

    Hill Farmstead, spent around 300 bucks. A lot of it was for other people though. Don't plan on doing that again.

    Most at one time was ~$225 in Madison WI at a Steve's. I live pretty far from a nice selection like that so I stocked up on Black Husky and other gems I don't get by me.

    In one weekend, I think I spent ~$300+ and that was Central Waters 17 weekend back in January. I picked up my whole CW17 allotment plus more from CW and other stuff from local stores.

    Dropped a little over $650 this last weekend at Casey Brewing and Blending. I'm already terrified of how much I will be dropping up there next month.

    Yup, thanks bud, after I had posted that I learned about the heady and luckily that is the day I will be through there! I'm not really looking to score 4 cans at a time and hustling around all day.

    Yes it is going to be very expensive. Whatever will fit in the car, so I hope the GF packs light!
