    What good Christmas sets have you seen around the TC metro? I've come across two that seem to be good and probably good value. Of course both include a glass.
    First a St. Bernadus with 4x 11.2 oz bottles (tripel, abt 12, pater 6 and I think pater 8)- about $20
    Also a Schnieider set with 4x 16 oz bottles (approx size and I don't remember the exact type, but each was different) and 1x 12 oz of aventinus - about $33 I think.
    Sometimes these sets can be a pretty good deal.

    He wasn't asking about Hanukkah Sets...
    Maybe the OP should have been a little more ambiguous, and said "Holiday Sets."

    I hear Westy Bricks are a hotter than Tickle Me Elmo

    The Boulevard 4 pack with a sweet tulip is tempting. I think 17 bucks.

    And if it can wait, many of these are clearanced after the holidays. I think I got the Boulevard set for $12 in January.

    Unibroue has a Maudite 750 with a glass and a La Fin Du Monde 750 with a glass.

    Saw both of them at Blue Max for $9.99. The glasses looked quite nice and it is only about $2 for them when you consider normal bottle pricing.

    Why do you have to hate on Chanukah?

    He wasn't hating on Chanukah; he was making fun of Ryan. :wink:

    Scratch that, saw them TODAY for $11.99 at thomas, plus, long strange tripel is in there, which we don't see that often. The glass is one of my favorites.

    $11.99 is a pretty good deal for the Boulevard/Smokestack set. A 4 pack (of just one type) goes for about $9.99 around here (Kansas City area), and you can grab a glass for about $2.99. It was pointed out to me in a locasl store that it would be cheaper, in that particular case, to grab a 4 pack and a glass, rather than the set. I didn't end up with the variety, but I can get all of the types in the set easily around here, so that was no big deal. Love their glasses.
