    getting hosed here is the norm but 11.25 is high even by our standards. picked mine up at blanchards (not reknown for low pricing) came to an even 20 for 2 bottles.

    People have different perceptions about what constitutes Boston. When I say Boston I'm referring to downtown Boston, not "Boston area" aka Cambridge, Brookline, Allston, Quincy, Somerville, Roxbury, Dorchester, Charlestown, etc. I expect to pay a little more so if you paid $10 at Blanchards I don't feel so bad. I know it costs a hell of a lot more to run a store downtown than it does in the suburbs.

    I would like to know where that person bought it in "Boston" for $7 though.

    PS - how awesome is the Sunset > Blanchards > home move?

    I picked up 4 in Brooklyn, store had at least a dozen. It shows up in pretty unlikely places, I have a few random bodegas I scope for it. At $7.99, I'm very happy about that price. I'm going to bring one to Hunahpu's to share since this batch didn't get to Florida.

    I really enjoyed this, but I think I preferred 12.21. Hard to say as I only had a taste of that.

    true, "boston" is used to mean anything from downtown specifically to boston + its extending neighborhoods (allston, charlestown, roxbury, dorchester etc) to altogether separate towns and cities (brookline, cambridge, etc). but as to your larger point, idk to be honest, generally i find prices at a lot of places to be on par with what you see downtown. charles st is typically on the high side - i'll stop here because it's close to work (still easily on par w blanchard's, $-wise... cheaper in some cases) but for example federal wine and spirits on state st is pretty reasonable. $4$ i find blanchard's to wield some of the highest price points anywhere in the city. ($9+ for a rochefort 10?)

    was in sunset the other day... 2 days, as it turned out, before they tapped BA bigfoot :slight_frown:

    It's definitely an expensive city to buy booze. Charles St. and Jobi are my usually go to's because they're a short walk from my apartment. Occasionally I stop in at BWX (great bomber selection) but that's about it. If I'm far outside of the city I'll stop places but its not much cheaper (usually a couple dollars at best even 45 min outside of downtown). That's why I thought it was insane when people were buying this for $5.99

    I haven't been to Sunset I awhile. Probably because every time I go I have a $100+ tab

    Have you noticed the difference even in letting the Enjoy By sit for a few days? I had one last Friday and then last night, and even then I noticed a difference in taste. I'm guessing this is due to the "freshness" factor

    As of Wed, March 6th, I still haven't seen any in the Baltimore County/Towson area. Beltway Fine Wines still doesn't have it in and they are generally the first to get a lot of stuff.

    I haven't really let any sit longer than a week after they were released. My post was a response to those claiming certain batches were better than others. It was not a comment on whether the beer fades quickly or not. I do believe they fade fast, that's why I drink them so quickly.

    Just found some at Safeway! That would be the last place I would expect to find some they had about six bottles left!

    Wanna divulge your secret locations? I went to an "unlikely location" that I found on the Stone website (random natural foods store on Graham ave in east williamsburg, granted they had a solid beer room), and the people there were very confused as to a)what the beer I was talking about was called, and b) why I would be looking for a "limited release" beer in the first place.

    Picked up two bottles, for $8.99 each, yesterday at Oliver's beverage in Albany, NY. Unfortunately they didn't last long but a keg is going up.

    I was able to get some on draft yesterday in Rochester. Anybody in Rochester that wants to try it, go to the Old Toad. It's so good.

    The map on Stone's website was useful. Just call ahead of time. I found a ton at Fairway of all places.

    Quite a good DIPA, for over 9% ABV, but not something I would go crazy over to need to buy again.

    $6.49 at Avenue wine and $6.99 at kreston's. Avenue sold out on Saturday and I would bet krestons is done as well. It's on tap at two stones right now, I highly recommend heading over there before its gone!

    It's excellent but I am not sure how you can make that statement. I paid $7.99 for a bottle and sounds like some people are paying even more. At 22oz. Thats more than $4 per 12oz. And factors out to over $26 for a 6 pack. I bought a sixer of Lagunitas Sucks for under $10. Again, I love Enjoy by but I would say it's one of the worst values out there as far as DIPA's go.

    I paid $6, but I feel you.... What you aren't accounting for, however, is the subjective value that my taste buds impart upon it, which makes it a greater value.

    Seems like the beer shops out here got wise to the demand of this beer. Last week, 7.99. This week, 9.99. Its a shame the allocation for the entire Northeastern NC (roughly 100 miles from otherwise closest available location) is only 1 case per store...3 stores in all, one got a case last week, one today and one tommorow. But o well, I paid 9.99 each (2 bottle limit) Its a little expensive, but I can come up with 100 ways to justify paying it :stuck_out_tongue:
    SN , I'm really looking forward to seeing "Sucks" back on the shelves!
