Certainly. Buying a beer at an establishment (brewpub or whatever) is a little different. I'll pay the $5, or $8, or $10 they charge for a beer they are promoting as their best craftsmanship.

But if I'm dropping money on a beer, to drink it at home, that is more than I'd pay for a solid beer at a bar, then it had better have some definitive evidence, beyond the brand name, to indicate that it is a special experience. Blending, souring, traditional methods, etc... those all qualify.

A beer COULD be worth $100 a bottle. Just show me where the expense went. A custom yeast strain maintained at the brewery? Special equipment? Long aging times? A fancy label isn't going to cut it with me. I'm not opposed to a hundred dollar beer, but it's on the producer to convince me that it's more than just a marketing gimmick.

Yah, my point was that an occasional brew from the pub is fun.. but, even for DAB.. $26 is enough to make 5 g of good beer that I can enjoy over the long haul... I'm just too old and retired long enough that I want to be a bit better with my hard earned retirement money than to blow $40 on a bottle that I can't refill cuz Stone is too far away.

BTW, I just brewed 5 G of a great tasting (early) Simcoe APA with a brewing partner for Brew Day. Oh, it's going to be nice. Simple grist and single hop. Wow.. still in primary and at FG for a few more days. If I treat it right the rest of the process, it's going to be a wonderful ale. A great balance.. clean. I can't wait.. another month and I'll be happy.. 2/3's keg and rest bottled to share.

After opened that 3L Double Bastard, how long do you think it takes to go flat?

Depends on how much you drank. More headspace = more flat.
