    A couple of years ago, I grabbed a 4-pack of World Wide Stout. When it did not scan, I told the clerk it was $7.99 per bottle (the price marked on the shelf), he insisted it was $7.99 for a 4-pack.

    Recently got a big discount on two bottles of Fantome Hiver, because it was "last year's".

    I liked it. It's aged well too. To each his own.

    Although this is a good deal, they're smaller bottles than normal (8ozs I think), people usually think they're the 11.2ozs.

    I found a place last night that has Cricket Hill's Bourbon Porter for $5.99 and Full Sail Top Sail for $6.99. They're $12.99+ at the other retailers in town. Waiting on my paycheck to go stock up.

    You guys. So unfair. The bottle shop nearest me recently raised the price of Hop Stoopid from $9 to $12. Not like it's in high demand or anything. They do because they can.

    Oh well, I'll go back to buying my Philadelphia Brewing Company bombers for $7. Harvest from the Hood and Shackamaximum Imperial Stout are both solid locals that I am very thankful to have access to in inexpensive form.

    My best was 20% off my 'mix-a-6' containing 375s of Cantillon Kriek and Tilquin Gueuze. So at the end $12.80 Cantillion and $12 Tilquin. Great for Pennsylvania

    $10.97 Bitches Brew
    $12 Supplication

    As mentioned before, in PA we don't get deals

    The only beers i consider deals where I am are deschuttes 6 packs. All (IPA, Stout, Porter, Pale Ale) sixers are 5.99 in a couple of locations. This is less than a lot of shitty 6ers. Also, they're $9, $10 at some other beer stores and supermarkets
