    A few weeks ago when I snagged a bottle of BCBCS, I paid a fair $15. Today when I got two bottles of the Cherry Rye, the total was $46!

    How bout you guys?

    I know that a package store (in CT) I go to on a regular basis paid 169 a case for the Cherry Rye, which is just over 14 a bottle cost to them, they normally charge a 25% markup or so, so that bumps it up to just about 18, they were selling it at 19.99 per corporate level management decision, they got 18.99 for the coffee

    Most def, the store was gonna 18.99 till a manager in a higher office said you will sell it at 19.99, the beer guy at the store prefers lower prices cause he buys and enjoys good beer himself

    $18.99 for coffee and $19.99 for Cherry Rye has been the going rate in Southeastern CT. Wish I would have done a little shopping around would have drove a ways to get coffee for $12 -$13. My beer budget has gone to shit lately, with all this great beer coming out.

    I feel ya man. CT used to be a piss poor beer state. In the past month, I've dropped cash on a half case of BA IST, a few four packs of founders RIS, three bottles of regular IST, 3 four-packs of BCBS, a bottle of BCBCS and CRBCS, and 2 bottles of Blacks Ops. I love being able to buy all this stuff and sharing it with all my friends, but holy shit, I wish these releases were a little farther apart.

    Edit: Oh, and Nugget Nectar is going to be out in Mass in like a week.
