Bigfoot Barleywine is nearly 10% ABV and has a pretty hefty hop bill, I would guess that this is a factor in the higher price.

the local places that stock bigfoot sell it for the same price as reular ole SNPA....
strange thing, the grocery store sells the SNCA for about $4.00/12er more.

I walked in to the nearby shop last night and saw tons of it, wiht no problem picking it up. Looks like Columbia, MO got it pretty early on.

We've had it for a while in GA.

They have a whole rack at my fav liquor store. Maybe I'll
pick some up. Haven't really tried too many Barleywines, but
10% and a heavy hop bill makes me wonder.

Almost too easy to find here in the NW but regardless this has always been my go to standard of a fine barleywine. $4 for a 12er that is expensive I paid $1.50 the other day.

Anyone know where to find some in Corpus Christi? Got the wife looking for some while I'm out in sand land.

Last year, I dropped a bottle of 2003 SN Bigfoot. Thankfully the 04 survived. Until I drank it.

I knew where Bigfoot was lurking and made my way to his lair last night. He taunted me, his 6 bottles gleaming an evil reddish brown in the lights and then he decided to have his way with me and charge me $13.99 for the pleasure of getting to know him better.

OUCH!
