    Well not at a single bottle shop/brewery, but my whole New England trip I spent damn near 1k. And I regret nothing. :grinning:

    Man, I'm a cheapskate compared to some folks. I spent $100+ on a case of Spencer Trappist when it came out.

    A couple friends and I did the Lawsons farmers market, alchemist truck sale, and HF Anniversary weekend last year (2014). I spent roughly $300 and combined we were just about $1000

    A couple of the Drie Fonteinen and a 375 Cantillion Gueuze. I went on a Saturday and expected to get nothing, at least not a Loon. Struck up a conversation with one of the employees and had about $160 worth of beer in a box. He then brought out the Loon. I don't blame the guy. He says he gets a lot of people who will box up a shit ton of beer and end up walking out with just the Cantillion. I'm sure they get shit on by a lot of people looking for dem whalez bro. Here is my haul. Not all the beer I bought is in the pick. There were a lot of doubles and triples of different brews.

    edit...The best way to get the good stuff is to frequent the place as much as often. Regulars get first shot. I would be there weekly if I lived near by. Great place and the deli smell was so hhhnnnnnnnnnnggggggggggg!

    $200+ at The Rare Barrel for 8 bottles at $25 each plus tax. These were sent off to trades and I received about 40 beers just for these 8 bottles. I guess it was worth it!

    cant pinpoint it, but ive had several transactions between 150-200. Most being trillium but a few times at jacks abby for last years framinghammer variants when they had no limits.

    Ive been able to keep in MA for my shopping thank god. It honestly scares me (as well as my bank account) to take a road trip up to vermont.

    I spent $250+ at the Xocoveza Charred/Extra Anejo release....definitely the most I have ever spent. It was worth every penny. Amazing beer...some of which I have drank/saved and some which I have used to trade for Huna/DL/Cake/Coffee Cake/MBCP.

    Mine is def a HF/VT trip. The most was when Ann was released. Between HF and Heady/sip/other VT goodies easily topped $500. I try not to think about it. I use it as my vacation!!

    If I trek out to VA Beach, and the wind blows right (read: there's lots of good new stuff in), I could drop 40-50$ at Total Wine there and another 50-60$ at Grape n Gourmet in one trip. That keeps me in beer for a few weeks.

    While I didn't pay for them all I still had to haul them home- 50 something bottles at roughly 17$ a piece. Oh the life of being a trustee

    Jealous of some of the hauls listed here. My max was ~$150 at the Four Quarters Darkest Heart release this year. Coming in at a close second was the $120 per ticket at the Focal release in April.

    Yes , it was in a World Market not your usual liquor store. Saw it on the bottom shelf and had to try it with all the hype you know. This beer is one you have to be almost waiting for it when they stock it or call to reserve.

    My last VT/Heady Topper run I went through about $250. 2 cases of Heady plus a few other VT brews. I know I'm going to shatter that record in a few weeks when I go back though. I'm better prepared this time and will get what I can.

    Just dropped $150 on a case of Supplication.........most I ever dropped at once was over $500.....over a month $1000+

    average month $400.......this is for two people drinking and a few to cellar.......

    I dont do drugs and I go out only a few times a month and shop at thrift stores for most of my clothes. I can keep making excuses if you want me to.

    Most of the beers are not worth the price. Trying to keep to basic beers that I know are good and save a ton of $. Not going too well so far.
