Default $2.99 six packs

I was in Trader Joes this last weekend and they had their winter brew on sale for $2.99 a six pack. It is a 7.5% double bock, with something like 25 IBUs and is a tasty brew, especially for $12 a case!

Just thought you'd like a heads up on this one!

That's crazy dealin! I've never had TJ's winter, but I think they contract out their brews. I still have a bottle that I'm aging, it's a TJ's 750ml from 2005, screen printed with their logo, etc., but you KNOW who made it, because the wire cage has the unibroue logo. Pretty cool.

I know that the TJ near where I work sells wine and I will have to check to see if they sell beer also!

TJ's has some decent quality beer and for cheap. Their vienna style lager is really pretty good and I think around 4.99 a six?

I couldn't believe it and thought, "hell it is worth it for the bottles!" But the beer is nice.

Yup, Trader Joe's doesn't sell beer in CT either

But, the liquor store right next to TJ's had 750s of Ommegang Three Philosophers on sale for under $5 so I stocked up on those

Damn, I think I've been paying $8 - $9 a bottle for those! Those'll cellar great, too... they got any more?
