Default Expensive Rogue Beer

To anyone who enjoys the great beers of Oregon, I have a question.
Whay is Rogue Beer so dang expensive? I love Dead Guy Ale, but at 10 bucks a six pack... I just order it when I go out to eat. And I really want to try the Double Dead Guy Ale, but it's 12 bucks for a 22 oz. bottle. Maybe it's just me, but this seems a bit steep. Their other ales and stouts are great, but still a bit spendy.
So why is that?? Does anyone know??

I couldn't tell you, but I know that usually a six pack of dead guy is 14 dollars around here. Their stuff is usually way more expensive than other sixers, except for stone brewing.

Most craft beers are on average $10 a six pack. I figured since you are in Oregon it may be a little cheaper, due to less shipping, but I guess not. In the Dallas area, we only have two local craft breweries, Rahr, and Franconia. Rahr is about $8 a six pack, but others from Texas are between $8 and $10.

I pay 9 for a 6 of SN. seems about normal. Craft beer costs more than Budwesier.You get what you pay for. You also don't drink with the goal of drinking 20 in a night.

??? A 12 pack of Bud Light Lime here is 24 $ I can usually drink craft or micro for cheaper than BMC if I hunt for specials/reductions. Count your blessings: 9 bucks for a six pack is usually the cheapest beer in the store.

I turn (or try to) the empty bombers into tumblers. There is a thread in the DIY section on it. I also do the same for Stone bombers when I can find them.

There is also the possibility of harvesting pacman yeast from some of the Rouge beers.

My personal favy's from Rouge are: the chocolate stout, oatmeal stout, Irish ale, and the bitter. The dead guy is ok, I have yet to have a double dead guy, I just buy other stuff lol. I strongly disliked the hazelnut.

I also have 3 McRouge Scottish ales that I have been hording for a while. Those little buggers were pricey...$5 for an 8oz bottle!

I like most of Rogue's beers, but they are not worth the price to me either. $12 for Double Dead Guy is ridiculous when a Double Bastard, which uses a lot more specialty malts and hops, is $7.

I love Rogue, but a bomber runs about $6-$8 near me. The Rogue St. Red, Smoke Ale and Hazelnut Brown are my favorites.

A plus side to liking this beer and getting into home brew is that Ive been saving their bottle for my own use which causes me to buy less bottles. They are easyto clean since their labels are printed directly onto the bottles.
