    Not worth it.

    $24 for KBS and I would gladly do it again & again. The $18 on Dogfish Head 120 Minute IPA? Well, that's a different story. Let me get back to you a year from now after they have been in the cellar for a while...

    Buying 4 singles really does not count as a 4-pack! It's 4 beers, not a 4-pack.

    If time = money, I've definitely spent more time trying to acquire a rare 4-pack than I have in terms of actual cash.

    Though for cash, most recently I spent $30 on a 4-pack of 2008 Thomas Hardy

    I quite recently bought Double Jack for $13 with deposit and tax. Was worth it, though I'll probably buy/try a lot of other different things before buying again. Hoptimum is probably better "bang for the buck".

    I remember paying around 16-17 for Samichlaus, though I doubt you can get it for that anymore.

    Good old Pennsylvania. Only way I could find BCBS was $30 a 4 pack.

    You gotta look at this optimistically . 15 bucks for Hoptimum 4 pk, give a dollar or so for tax. Rounds out roughly to 4 bucks a 12 oz bottle, for a great, superbly nice sippin' DIPA. Compare it to a Bud Lite @ 6 bucx or more at the local AAA minor league baseball game. Not such a bad deal.

    I paid the same for it in my area as well. I figured there was a chance I could save 3-4 dollars elswhere, but there was a better chance that if I went elsewhere that I wouldn't find it. I only treat myself to beer this expensive once every 2 months, so wth.

    I paid $13.50 for Backwoods Bastard yesterday. Pretty good deal considering what some of you had to pay, but I think that was the most I've spent on a 4pk of 12oz bottles so far. I have BCBS on reserve though, which hasn't hit the Twin Cities yet.

    For a 4pk of 16oz cans I paid $15.99 for Wet, and I'll probably spend more on Abrasive.

    Yup, $ 24.99 for BCBS and I was glad to pay it. In fact, I picked up 2 four packs ;)
