    I just remembered, those bottles of 2015 Parabola were $15.00/bottle. So my updated reply is $15.00 for a single bottle.

    $26 on a 750ml Rodenbach Caricture Rouge. Never saw it before so I bought it. Fantastic beer. Have seen it several times since for $18-20 range so I guess I got gouged a little.

    Or price per oz. 7oz pour at pub for Abraxas for $10 plus tip ($12 total). Great beer as well and I only spent $12.

    Gave a friend $200 for an unopened 2003 Utopias last year. I figure that's what a "fresh" one goes for and it's not like you run into something like that every day.

    $35 + tax for a 750ml of CCB BBA Big Sound. Drank it solo and it assuaged any lingering pain I might have felt over paying that much = worth it.

    $32 for A Deal with the Devil. Haven't cracked it open yet, but I have high hopes based on the ratings and style in general.

    $30 for BA Abraxas. Was well worth it and would have been at triple the price. Best beer I've ever had.

    The Moscatel BA Dark Lord from 2013 (I believe...) for $50. Even splitting with a friend, not worth it.

    $13.99 for the event horizon by olde hickory and it was well worth it. I appear to be one of the cheapest SOBs on this board.

    With shipping and trades KBS has cost me over a dollar per ounce to get it out to Montana this week. I think it's worth it and envy anyone who bought it retail.

    Just drank my 2011 with a buddy the other night. I'm determined to always have at least a bottle from the last three years but that's the extent of my vertical chasing. Big props to you sir.

    $35 on Alesmith BA old numbskull. Was it worth it? I have no idea, I haven't opened it yet. I find the more I spend on the bottle the more I just look at it. In the words of Cameron Frye "Ferris, He doesn't drive it, he just rubs it with a diaper...."

    I think it was Hommage for about $35-40. Spent the same on a Black Damnation but it was for a trade partner and I didn't actually drink it.

    For bottles Bois, Lou Pepe kriek and HF CD10 were all about 30 or so. In a bar split a bottle of Fou Foune that was 55 or 60.

    I probably traded ~$60 worth of beer for a 2013 prop (plus shipping, plus extras), but I got some really nice extras in return so hard to pin down the exact amount spent.

    I stopped by Side Project when in St. Louis and paid $40 to drink a bottle of pulling nails on premise. Also dropped $40 on a BA behemoth at 3F.

    I think it's the $23 I just spent on Green Flash Silva Stout. I wouldn't pay a mark up over normal pricing for a brew. It's a bad cycle to start and the price gouging for beer is getting out of control.

    $15 for Saint Arnold Bishop Barrel 7 or 8 at a bar. I was already drunk. Big mistake. Seeing all these other posts makes me feel a little better though.

    $18 for a 12 oz. of track 10, $30 for a bomber of FW 18th Anniversary Ale. Both were worth it, but a bit steep. If I saw the 18th on the shelf tomorrow for $30, might buy it again though..

    $30something for a cellared Cascade Kreik 750ml.
    $28 for a cellared Oude Tart by the Bruery 750ml.
    and sad to admit, after having been away from home for an extended amount of time, I once paid $20 for a single Heady on the lot of a phish show somewhere in the mid-west. that was the best mid summer refersher I've ever had. worth it.
