I recently did an extract clone of the Alaskan Smoked porter, but have never tried the original beer, so I ordered it online along with Pliny the Elder, Blind Pig and Fat Tire. These are all beers that are not available on the east Coast. The shipping and taxes for four bottles was $28. WTF? Why is it so damn expensive? I'm guessing that California charges all these crazy taxes for alcohol being shipped out. I would've thought that 4 bottles would have been half that.
