Default Another question for all of you...

What is the most expensive bottle of beer you have ever purchased? How much did it cost and what was it? Also, what was your reason for buying it? I know that more than one question, but it will be interesting to see the responses.

Terrible and Chimay, about 10-12 bucks for a big bottle, I think they are 22 ouncers. I bought some nice beers in Belgium and the netherlands, but they were way cheaper than over here.

Harviestoun's Old engine Oil. $3 for a 12oz bottle but it is AMAZING stuff.

pick up a bottle if you ever see it, it's worth the extra money.

Rogue Morimoto Imperial Pilsner. $14 for a 750ml bottle.

A good beer, but certainly not worth that much.

A local Store is asking $10 for 12oz of Skullsplitter... But the most expensive I have purchased recently was Quelque Chose which was almost $12 for 750ml

ooh...you got ripped off

i think the most expensive beer is belgian styles that i mail-ordered from John's Grocery. upwards of $13 for some 750 mL bottles, plus shipping. Got some great beers, although some of them tasted like they were not stored correctly.

among the list were:

Goliath
Beiken
Satan Red
Lucifer
Kwak

and lots of other good stuff i don't remember
