If this is true, Bells now for me is 11.20 out the door with deposit now it will be 12.20 for a damn sixpack. Nice

I've had Dark Horse's Crooked Tree IPA. Excellent brew. Just have trouble finding it on a regular basis. I'd buy more of it if I could.

Three Floyds Alpha King 6packs are up in price from around 8.99 to around 10.49 - 10.99 in the Chicago area.

Wow, I commend the authors on their thorough journalism. I really appreciate in-depth coverage such as this. In other news, Iraq going badly.

In any case, it's a good thing I have 27 cases in my basement and 25 gallons in carboys.

Pardon me if my original post did not reach the level of journalistic integrity that you 2 seem to require.

I'll try to do better next time.

How about this one, any better?

So who buys beer any more?

Honestly, I can't remember the last time I bought beer, other than at a bar or pub. Very little of it holds a candle to my homebrew anyhow.
