This thread is most definitely evidence of that confusion.
When I was 18 (in 1988), I was at a strip joint when a waitress approached me and asked if I wanted a beer. I handed her a twenty and asked for change in ones. She handed me a can of Busch and the change and walked away. I counted the change and discovered that she gave me 12 ones. So, I paid $8 for a can of Busch. In 1988.
The prices for alcohol at strip clubs haven't changed by much since then
I payed 7 euros for a Fou at Cantillon. 12ish$ american dollars?
about $10, stop teasing us
Is there any left?
My bad fellas.
I've only been up to Packs and Dogs once, like a year ago to get the Stone Mint Chocolate collab. They get some rare stuff once in a while but it's overpriced. I drive out to The House probably once a month or so.
65$ for a bomber of the bruery chocolate rain...
This is the reason I believe most douchebags get into craft beer.
$31.99 for a 4-pack of BCBS... Boycotting Goose Island. And I live in Chicago!
I love this bottle shop because they usually have great prices and are often overlooked, but they have a ton of 2013 WWS they are selling for $18. I mean they sold BCBCS for $6 a bottle. I've never seen any WWS or 120 for more than $10 (definitely not more than $15), and they are usually vintage bottles. Maybe this is the new price for WWS since it wasn't produced last year or perhaps there is a smaller amount of it now, but I doubt that with the new expansion.
thats so ridculous to me...u obviously know that its not worth that 10 dollar price tag being a year old, why charge customers that like a slimeball weasel asshole...such an insult to your intelligence you shoulda lit the counter on fire
12.99 for a bottle of Enjoy By. I live in Southern California.
A carry out place a block from my apartment was just selling it for $17/bottle or $60/4-pack. I just shook my head and walked out. Other prices I'd seen in the area ranged from $7-$10/bottle.
There a Brazilian beer forum I visit. People travel to the US and to Europe and bring beers in their luggage to sell there. The prices are usually very "interesting". From the top of my head (all prices in USD and approximated):
25 for 1 60min
100 for 1 W12
1500 for a DL 2009 to 2013 vertical
50 for 1 Enjoy By
55 for 1 HT
Goose Island doesn't set the retail price.
He might be referring to your statement ''is $30.00 a lot for a bottle''. Of course it is mate, unless it was meant as a rhetorical question. Also, you seem to agree with the price of beer being raised which is ridiculous. With that type of mentality spreading more people will start thinking its alright charge crazy prices. Just my two cents.
Purchasing a beer is a voluntary exchange, you can't gouge the willing. At this point you should just consider this a tax on those who feel they "need" to try a beer.
Beer will always be a non-essential commodity, even if you have a lousy selection locally there are always other alternatives for craft beer. The fact that its non-essential and there are alternatives eliminates the possibility of gouging.
Not in Philly...never seen it for less than $9 per bottle.
Paid $20 for a 4 of Ruination. Not so much, gouged, but I'd take 90 minute over it any day.
I don't count bar prices in price gouging discussions. It is to be expected that a bar will rape you.
1) Any and all Mikkeler 12 oz bottles
2) $10 for a single of Double Dose
I agree, I think you have to expect to be "gouged" when going to a bar.
Stop. Just stop with silly references to "price gouging". Please read: http://www.kidseconposters.com/posters/financial-literacy/basic-principles-of-economics/
Why would you boycott GI? You should boycott that store. I got my 4 packs for $19.99 this year, $5 a beer for a high quality BA stout is well worth it IMO.
$18 bucks for a bottle of Lunch at a bar in Boston. IMO...Any beer from Maine Beer Company. I love their beers but the pricing is a bit crazy for one bottle.
Did you then walk down the street, go into Tiffany's, and try the same logic on them??
$40 for a 375ml of Beatification. I guess I paid for the convenience of buying it from a San Diego store.
I hate that every time threads like these pop up a bunch of people need to explain that you can't gouge on beer. We get it. No one is talking about literal gouging.
Agreed. At a couple of places they have standard pricing for all growlers, $5.99 for 32 oz. and $9.99 for 64 oz. They don't always get the best stuff, but I've gotten 64 oz. fills of Flower Power and Sculpin for $9.99, and they currently have Sucks for the same price.
Everything I buy
Ten fidy is 15 bucks a can
Bourbon county stout 2012 was 11 dollars a bottle
Fbs and deviant dales is about 10 dollars pop
Hoptimum was 8 dollars a bottle
Odell myrcenary is 9 dollars a bottle
Things like ale smith wee heavy you are looking at about 35 dollars
Then if I order online I have to pay a delivery charge
It is going to cost me 45 dollars to get a bottle of biscotti break and Doris the destroyer delivered
It's soul destroying
$6.99 for a 12 oz of Great Lakes Christmas ale at a shop rite liquors.
I hear where you're coming from completely, but I don't think people do get it, I think they literally think beer can be gouged. One person up-thread even talks about how it's possible.
As others have pointed out - you can't price gouge on beer, and what's extra special about this thread is people are calling out beers being sold at MSRP as gouging as well. Oh - and bars marking up 1.5x - 2x isn't really that terrible either.
New BA definition of price gouging - any beer that I personally deem too expensive.
On topic - beer I've seen that was most significantly above MSRP - KBS for $30 per single (in a store).
Right...which is why I've modified the title off the thread to include profiteering. Hopefully from this point forward we can avoid too much petty conversation about the specific wording. We all should be talking about the same thing...
...but apparently we all aren't as you've quite correctly noted.
Such is the nature of threads these days.
Cool fair enough. As with the hauls thread, perhaps there should be an ongoing thread for this topic, titled "Most outrageously priced beers that I just had to have"
I rather like that idea...I will discuss with the Bros. and see if it flies.
That's normal pricing.
Not Goose Islands fault, send them an email saying what the liquor is doing and they wont get any or very little.
