I know beer is getting expensive, but this is crazy.
 
SWMBO asked me to pick up bread & milk on my way home today and as usual, I somehow head to the bread isle via the beer department. :D

They have a cabinet under lock & key for the very pricey wine & champagne, but Dogfish 120????? WTF???

Sorry for the crappy phone pic.

Because it's so hard to get in large quantities, many places have a one DFH 120 bottle per customer rule. Perhaps that's the reason for the lock and key.

You couldn't give that stuff to me. :p

Rogue Ales sell at my local supermarket for $11.59 now! And get this: Mexican budwiser (aka Corona) is $19 for a half-rack! F-in arm-and-a-leg for Piss Warm Chango!

Yep. And they are going to expand the beer & wine section this year. Whoo Hoo.

My LHBS keeps that stuff in the back room and you have to ask for it. But they have an "open door" shop for everything else. I just walk in to the back and get my grains, hops, yeast, kegs or what ever. But the 120, you have to ask for it. :drunk:
