    Bought a bomber of Sculpin recently for $8 or so, but I like Size 7 better, and it's around the same price.

    Sierra Nevada Pale is usually $2.50 for a 750ml. My go to disc golf beer, perfect amount for a round

    Unibroue's Maudite, Trois Pistoles, or La Terrible ($7.99) (all are best aged for at least 2 years)
    Lagunitas anything (this year's Hairy Eyeball especially-- speaking of which age one of those for a year, plz) ($4.99)
    Full Sail Old Broadhead-- a very acceptable barleywine (used to be $4.49 for a bomber, but i am not sure they are continuing the beer)
    Deschutes Hop in the Dark or Hop Henge ($4.99)
    Left Hand Wake Up Dead ($6.99)
    New Belgium Tart Lychee ($7.99)
    _______
    [None Bombers]
    The soon to be 32 oz Lagunitas Sucks
    Weihenstephaner Hefeweissbier 500ml ($2.79)
    Miller High Life 40 oz ($1.99)
    Axe Head Minhas Craft (lel) Brewing 40 oz-- I could not finish it but I have no idea how they got 11% ABV 40 oz to cost $1.99. That's the equivalent of 8.8 drinks of alcohol. It tastes like flintstone vitamins, overripe bananas, Runts, Franzia, rusty water pipes, and dry malt extract. The ultimate "f#ck me" device.

    Have been curious about this I'll have to check it out. What's the heat level like? I dig Fitger's Wildfire...I know totally different style other than the spiced part.
