    Just dropped $20 on BCS. Bar close to me was selling 10 oz pour for $10. $20 for 4 pack is well worth it.

    $21.99 for the same beer. It works out to around $11 a bomber, so not that bad, I guess.

    Before that it was $19.99 for Cuvee de Jacobins Rouge, and also worth every penny. It's also nice to be able to spread them over four different nights- not so easy to do that with two bombers or 750s.

    $14.49 for Backwoods Bastard. Yesterday, as it happens.

    But I've spent more than the $3.62 per 12 oz. bottle that represents on singles. I think I paid $10 for a 12 oz. bottle of 120 Min. IPA. If not, I've certainly bought a few $5.49 or $5.99 bottles of Hitachino Nest and Mikkeller stuff (oddly, at my wife's insistence)

    I was too cheap to pay $18 for the KBS 4-pack and just bought an individual bottle for $5. Ended up buying 5 of them that way, so my cheapness back-fired.

    $17 on Surly Wet twice last year (one for me and one for my uncle in WI for doing my taxes) and once this year. Never bought Surly Abrasive in the can, but plan to this year.

    Agreed with the $20ish for KBS and BCBS. No regrets and I'm sure I'll spend more on this obsessive hobby in the future.

    $24 for KBS in DC. I've paid over $20 for a bomber though, so I didn't even think twice. Today when I bought a 4 pack of GF Double Stout, I thought "oh wow ONLY 8.99". I spend way too much on beer.

    26 + shipping for BCS. I added several other beers not available in Florida to make it worth the order.

    $37 for 2012 BCBS from a price gouging Ahole. I had a friend go get it for me and he had no idea what it was supposed to cost so he just grabbed a bunch of 4 packs for me. The store kept calling him back to tell him people on the waiting list were cancelling and they had more if he wanted it. Obviously they were cancelling because of the absurd price. I told him to get as much as he could and after all was said and done he got me 6 four packs.
