    $50 for BBDL in 2012 (first year that I really got into craft beer...ended up trading it away the following year for a bunch of my wants)
    $60 for '14 Portuguese Brandy BADL the day before DLD in 2015 at 3F (traded it away for a bunch of great CCB beers)
    and $50 for BVDL the very next day (still holding onto this one)

    I bought two bottles of Ommegang Three Philosophers for $16 each. That was a few months ago and I still haven't got around to either...

    i THINK the most I paid for a single bottle (750ml) was $18.99 and it was Bourbon County stout. i'm pretty certain i have never spent more than that.

    $50 on Sahalie from Ale Apothecary (NYC Distro). And was really disappointed to boot -- there was such an intense lactic character I couldn't handle. :flushed:. And I love sours.

    $60 Rare
    $35 Black Tuesday
    $30+ multiple times whenever Ale Smith emails me regarding an upcoming beer release (BB Speedway, BB Wee Heavy etc.)

    These have all lived up to the hype and reputation

    Flying Monkeys Chocolate Manifesto ($12), a waste imo.

    Now if we're including all kinds of alcoholic beverages, then, last Christmas I got a bottle of Remy Martin VSOP for $80

    In a restaurant they will over charge you but you get to have hard to find beers. I recently paid $26 and $28 for Sump and Abraxis in a restaurant and had a great time.

    $75 for a bottle of CBS not too long ago. First sip was awesome, then the green pepper flavor set in. Unfortunately, this bottle was well past it's prime.

    both were from the Bruery.

    cork and caged bottle of So Happens its Tuesday ($25)
    cork and caged bottle of Oude Tart ($23)

    and recently $14 per 12oz. bottle of KBS. I felt swindled afterward.

    the Oude Tart was delicious but I haven't opened the Tuesday yet, trying to wait for a special occasion.

    $41 including shipping for an Alesmith BBA Speedway shipped from San Diego and $17 for a 2008 World Wide Stout about 3 months ago. Both were worth it.

    I paid $35 at an auction at a Bottle Share for a bottle of Westy XII, 11/10 would pay again.

    Other than that $29.99 for an infected Green Flash Cellar 3 Silva Stout, however, the return was well worth it as I got a replacement (which I haven't opened yet), Cellar 3 Flanders Drive, 2008 Grand Cru, and a 2008 Le Freak.

    I dropped 20 bucks on a Westvleteren 12 once, and thought that was expensive for a beer. Reading this thread has set me straight!

    Had an 08 WWS last year and was afraid it would be past it's prime. WRONG. I would pay $17 for that every time!

    12oz - $11.99 for Almanac Dark Pumpkin Sour. Worth it? $15 Christmas tip from somebody that was in the mood, & may have had a little something before I encountered him. :slight_smile: I spent it a couple hours later, so the beer seemed free. :slight_smile: Yeah, worth it.

    22oz - ~ $20 for something by Mikkeller . It was a gift , so worth it, but I don't remember what it was.

    $19.99 for a 4-pk of KBS this year.(2 of which I gave away to appreciative co-workers.) Yeah, definitely worth it. :slight_smile:
