    If Hill Farmstead bottled more beer, I'd easily spend over 200 when I go up on sat... however I'll probably be in the 125 range and that will be my most expensive ever. Soon to be previous all time high was 50's.

    I don't know if it should count or not, but when you throw in the cost of shipping, I once bought a box of greatness from de Struise which included a bottle of their Black Damnation V (Double Black) and a bottle of their Five Squared among other things which all in cost nearly $300US. As they all arrived unscathed and were marvelously enjoyed, I'd say was well worth it!

    $200 a couple months ago on an 'Ultimate Goose Island Gift Pack'. it had 12 bombers (a la my avatar) which included a Cherry and a Bramble, a 4pk BCBS, a set of 6 GI glassware, and 2 shirts.

    With me buying my 6th abyss today, and a few other common beers, I will have spent 150+ within this past week at a few locations.

    Spent $240 at Russian river last weekend which is definitely #1

    Last fall I believe I spent about $200 in one day between the warren store, alchemist, and hill farm
