    I just recently purchased a 6er with some tasty imperial stouts. A friend and I wanted to do a tasting and compare several of the more popular and higher rated beers in the style. The 6er included:
    2 expedition stouts (which we have yet to try)
    2 founders imperial stouts
    Ten Fidy (also haven't had yet)
    Conways Irish ale (just wanted to try my favorite breweries current seasonal)

    The 6 pack was over 23 bucks which really isn't bad for those beers, considering the price of most bombers. So my question is, what is the most expensive create a 6er you have purchased, and if you remember, what was in it?

    I don't do a ton of BYO6 since until recently I didn't have many places nearby that did it. A recent one for a night of hops though was:

    2x Founder's Double Trouble
    2x Ithaca Flower Power
    2x Victory Dirt Wolf

    And that came out to something like $18 if I recall correctly.

    Sounds tasty. I wish I could get flower power. I can't get many of the better IPAs in my area, but I do get zombie dust occasionally.

    I mixed a six with a Shiner, a Carlsberg, a couple of Sams and a SN Pale Ale, for about 9 bucks. All was good till I threw in a Prairie Bomb and it rang up 16 dollars . I said "whoa". She said "yeah". That Bomb is 6 and a half, plus tax. I said "whoa" again. She said "Do you want it or not"? I didn't know what to say.

    Dark Horse Scotty Karate
    Dieu De Ciel Isseki Nicho
    Unibroue Blanch De Chambly
    Sixpoint Beast Mode
    and Two Brothers Cane & Ebel

    For about $18

    Does buying 6 Oude Kriek count as mix a six?

    Back around 2008 or so I remember paying $26 for a sixer of Kuhnhenn 4th Dementia. It was well worth the $$$.

    6 x 375m of Jackie O's BB Black Maple cost me about $72. Liquid heaven, and would do it again. However, that is not a mix six I guess. Most for mixed 6 beers would be $42.

    Do 6 Avery tweaks count as a 6 pack? If so then $72 + tax. I did put them in a 6 pack carrier. The girl working the register thought the price was wrong when I told her that was correct she almost passed out!

    I had the same experience at a grocery store recently. The cashier (an older women) couldn't believe I was paying $14 for a 12oz. beer. She reconfirmed that I still wanted the beer at that price and of course I did. Walked out with 6 bottles of Tweak.

    I did an all Belgian one a few years ago that was over $30. Chimays, Duval, Piraat, etc. It was well worth it!! I did one yesterday of mostly Imperial Stouts, that was $21. I'm sure i won't regret those dollars either.

    Don't remember the exact cost but in 2013 I heard that a Whole Foods had BCBBW. When I got there they had 5 on the shelf so those five plus a 6th for the discount was easily $30.

    I got six Corsendonk out of the mix a six at the weis market once for 10.99. They either mistakenly put it there or it just wasn't selling. I haven't seen it at that store since.

    When I lived in Allentown, PA back in the mid 80's I paid $21 for a make-your-own 6. My friends kept saying "Twenty-one dollars...for SIX bottles of beer?"

    Not sure if you've done any trading (I haven't yet myself) but likewise I'd love to try ZD but never see it in MA. If you're interested I can get FP really easily and would be happy to do a trade. PM me if you want.

    I just stocked up for another snowstorm here in MA with the most expensive combination of six bottles I think I've every bought. Trillium FB-90, Lost Abbey Gift of the Magi, SN Neomexicali, and Jack's Abby Hopstitution, Framinghammer, and Lager Ness Monster. c.r.e.a.m.
