    The Bruery Sucre for $50 at a bar on my last night in NYC before I moved to Shanghai. Totally worth it. Will be buying another (if they still have it) to celebrate my return to NJ (possibly for a while, possibly just for the summer) in June/July.

    $16 for 2014 Abyss and I think $15 for 2013 Velvet Merkin.

    The longer you're into beer the more expensive it gets!

    A friend and I went split a case of Dinner from MBC. After all expenses(case price, shipping, and paying someone to camp out at the brewery) the case cost $400. $33.33 per bottle. Not sure if I would do it again, but the beer was awesome and only 8 days old when I got it.

    $30 for Black Tuesday - still haven't opened it, but hoping it lives up to the hype. Normally my limit is around $15 for any single beer, and even then it better be damn good (public school teacher salary, yay!).

    I've probably paid more bottle-wise, but in recent memory I paid ~30$ for a growler of some local bourbon barrel imperial stout

    I spent $20 on a Cantillon Bruocsella 1900 Grand Cru. Good beer, but not sure I would spend that much on it again. It was more of a hey, I want to try this style and this looks good type of purchase.

    Besides expensive beers at concerts or other entertainment places for men, I spent something like 18 dollars for a Crunkle Sam Bomber from Clown Shoes here in Guadalajara, Mexico. There´s a more expensive Clown Shoes bomber in that store but I didn´t buy that.

    $37 for Alesmith BA Wee Heavy. It was for a trade though, so I did not partake. For myself, I guess it would be $24 for Omega Point.
