You spent $240 on seven beer??????????????????

Is this a sign that society has reached the end? Does everyone have that much 'disposable' income that it doesn't matter?

More power to you if you can do it...but wow...

Not to change the subject, but could you share the recipe for the Tripel Karmeliet clone? I'm interested in brewing something of that variety.

pff thats nothing dude;

http://cgi.ebay.com/2007-Sam-Adams-Utopias-Samuel-Adams-Utopia-Unopened_W0QQitemZ290349718234QQcmdZViewItemQQptZL H_DefaultDomain_0?hash=item439a311ada&_trksid=p3286.c0.m14

and the 2002 versions of the beers on the far left usually goes for 300 bucks on ebay if you can find it.

How could that possibly mean that society has reached its end? people have been spending lavish amounts on alcoholic beverages for millenia and its not stopping any time soon.

im not some rich dude throwing cash at old beer, its a hobby, and it pretty much put me broke, but i have a deep respect and lust for old stone brews. call me crazy, but whatever.

I was just talking to Greg Koch from Stone yesterday... he would have been proud.

[Edit: I should clarify -- I don't normally get a chance to hobnob with microbrewery CEOs... He was in town at a local pub for a small beer-fest and I had the opportunity to hang out for a while.]
