^ that's the most expensive one I've drank.

But Utopias is the most expensive I've seen.

lots of hype around brew dog at the moment. i've had one of their offerings and it was pretty good, but very expensive for only a 4 pack. however, i always buy the big corked bottles when i purchase commercial beers so i'm used to paying out the arse for some of the finer things in life. have yet to try the sink the bismarck, but honestly, at that abv, i think i would rather have some jameson or a higher quality whiskey.

Ive had Utopias. Free...

I unknowingly had a 15 dollar 12oz pour of geuze last weekend....http://beeradvocate.com/beer/profile/21734/85197

Oh yeah, the Dark Lord Barrel aged variants....50 bucks for a 750, I have 2. Its easy to pull that trigger in that situation(all the hype and excitement around the day) but in "real life" I dont think I could do it.

Hopleaf in chicago has quite the cellar list, I remember seeing some pricey Items but don't recall anything specific.

I've got a couple of Westie 12s in my fridge, but I haven't drank them yet. I also tried to buy a $16 8oz pour of Brewdog's Tokyo in a bar, but they were out, so my most expensive beer probably isn't that expensive.

Definitely the Utopia series. I think about $250 for a 750 mL. A bar close to me was selling it for $15 for a one ounce pour.

Sam Adams had a beer out a while back, think it was a triple bock at 40+ ABV that ran in the ball park of $125
When I had my liquor store had some belgiams in there that were in the $20+- range.
