Default Hobgoblin

I heard this Hobgoblin stuff is awesome and I wanted to try one, but is a half liter bottle really worth 25 bucks on ebay?

You should be able to go to the carousel and get some.

NO. It is a great beer, but not that great. It shouldn't be that hard to find either, from what i've seen it's readily available in many areas.

Got a link to the auction? I did a search but didn't find any that were $25 ...

I can get them for $5 near me ..... but it's definitely not worth $25 in my opinion.

bashe, what carousel are you talking about, the only store i know that goes by that name is the one on the west end of panama city beach. Is that where your talking about and if so I didn't know they had a beer selection like that i've only been in there a few times and was hammered.

You can find Hobgoblin in many stores- and while it's a good English ale, it may be skunked since the bottles are clear. You can sometimes find singles for reasonable prices. Definitely NOT worth $25!

That's the one I'm talking about. They have a pretty nice beer selection, lots of stuff I could not find anywhere else.
I was born in PC and lived there untill about 3 years ago.

Hey Bashe since you used to live here and are a beer brewer do you remember anymore places to get good beer. Seems to me like its almost impossible to find the stuff that we like here. I hate that you moved before they got our hofbrau built its pretty neat.

Au contraire. I found a brown pint bottle of Hobgoblin a couple of weeks ago and it was well worth the $4 I plunked down.
