Nevermind.

well, it is like a good bottle of your favorite spirt or a good bottle of wine no one looks askew at a 200$ bottle of wine or a $200 bottle of cognac
why any diffrence for a fine brew? its not like swilling a BMC for $200

for me it depends on context. just to have around the house? no way. but for, lets say, a wedding? yup.

The Common Table, in Dallas, will be doing a tasting of it on the 27th, if anyone is in the area. I'll definitely be there.

I saw some bottles of it at the local liquor store that also had a 21 bottle collection of irish whiskey for $250,000. I want to get it but $200 is sharp for that even though i spent $90 on Tactical nuclear penguin. I rather buy Jonny walker blue than that but its still egging me to buy it. I just want to giving a try. Need to find a bar that will have it per shot before pissing my money away

The Common Table in Dallas is selling 1 oz. pours for $15 today. Is that worth it in your opinion?

Up to you if it's worth it. I was at the local craft beer bar on Saturday. The owner's brother popped in and surprised a few of us with a free taste. To my wife and I, it tasted like a tawny port. We didn't get any carbonation- not sure if that was how it should be or if the bottle had been opened and the carb was just gone. I liked it but I'd be more inclined to pay 15 for another shot of it than 200 for a bottle- just my opinion.

If you want to taste it it is...unless you have a line somewhere that costs less.

$15 for a 1oz pour roughly doubles the price of a bottle, but paying more by the shot for Utopias is no different than buying any booze by the shot vs. by the bottle. If you want to buy a bottle your cost per shot will be half that, but you have to dish out quite a lot more up front...and then if you don't like it...
