Would you pay over $500 for a 750ml beer?
 
Sam Adams Boston Lager is probably my favorite brew to throw back but I found this and was shocked!

25% ABV sounds good! To bad it can't be sold in Missouri!

I need to brew up some of that. I'll sell it for half what they're asking, too!

I bought some of this year's Utopias for around $100 when it was released. Didn't realize the price would jump that much that fast.

There are some related threads on this beer. FWIW I've heard of people buying it for just over 100 dollars in the last few months. Either it's getting more difficult to come by or these people are charging way too much (I vote #2). I am willing to spend some fairly large sums on beer, but this one is a bit out of my price range.

internetwines.com tends to have a healthy markup on items they sell. To pick an example at random, they sell Talisker 25yo for $266.89--the place I normally buy whisky sells it for $169.99.

I don't think I am at a point where I could even enjoy that beer $500 worth! I am new to brewing and the complexity of that beer would be lost on the "I can get buzzed quicker!" crowd I hang with. If anyone has tried this, whats it like?

no, i would not. some people might, and that's okay i guess. it's their money....

To answer your question: No.

For the $600 they're charging? No way.

I'd get way more enjoyment out of a bottle of Maker's Mark and the extra $560 I'd have in my pocket after buying it. But that's just me ....

I wonder if it tastes similar to the DFH 120 minute ipa. At around 20% it nearly killed me :)
