Yeah, under $5 I don't even think about it.  I only consider not buying a beer I want once it reaches $15ish

post #6362 of 7539
you mean like for a 12 oz?
post #6363 of 7539

i mean a $3 top quality IPA ain't shit

 

sometimes I will pass on things that I would like to buy, but thats only usually for beers $15+ and most of the time I still buy it

Well I might be in the minority but I really don't care what price the beer is it to an extent. I do balk at $25 beers like the GI sisters or some barrel aged porter or drie fonteinen at $40 a bottle but a lot of times I'll still buy it if I've heard about it and want to try it

I'm not worried about $3 or even $5 for a 12 oz beer. Maybe it's because I come from the wine world and like $25 bucks for 22.4 ozs is a given.

I'm probably one of the sources of rising prices

i second this notion.

Maybe I just drink too much and/or don't have enough disposable income.

I don't like knocking back the same drink more than once in a row so a six pack of an ipa will last me awhile. Ill do maybe a beer for dinner and a whiskey afterwards every day but like to switch up everything

anyone have access to anything from side project out of missouri?
post #6370 of 7539

they only release stuff out of the perennial brewery on occasion.. stuff trades crazy well though and would definitely pay someone a handsome proxy fee to #goandpickitupformebro

Cory King is the owner/brewer of Side Project, he's also one hell of a nice guy. Anyways, he does small batch releases, some have been phenomenal and others were so-so, Saison du Fermier or The Origin are very much worth seeking out. Depending on a release, you might get lucky and find some of his beers also on tap in the Perennial taproom...
