Default Rare sighting?

Just stopped at the local beer store and saw what had to be the biggest bottle of beer I have ever seen... As I lifted it out of the box it was in (which contained four of these behemoths), noticing the flip-top cap complete w/ a padlock and two keys and then I realized it was Stone Brewing's Double Bastard....

I sh!t you not, the bottle was at least two feet tall...

They hadn't put it in the system yet, but the counter guy said he recalled the price to be somewhere near $160...

SWMBO wouldn't let me buy it because she doesn't love me...

(j/k, she does, and shows me by letting me brew instead of working on the house all the time)

Pics will be take if it is still there next time...

GO BUY THAT RIGHT NOW!!! If that was in a store near me it wouldn't last a day, actually the guy who manages the place would have had them sold prior to them even coming in the door.

2007 Double Bastard Ale

I wouldn't pay 165 for it. But it isn't my bank account.

Also, I have a 3 liter bottle of samichlaus on my shelf and I have to say it was still pricy at 85 bucks.

Yeah, I liked A.B., but not enough to plop down nearly two bones for a novelty bottle...

Although, I am tempted, I figure I can get a few more burners, and some piping for my eventual AG rig for what I would spend on it...

The homebrew/beer shop near me sells 3 liter bottles of Arrogant Bastard for about $70. Never seen any with a lock and key though.

I think they're all flip top with the lock on them like that. All part of the packaging.

Too pricey for me- I'd kill for some of those bottles, though!

I've never seen the point of monster beers in big bottles. Three liters of DB is enough alcohol to kill most people. Other than a large party, where would you open one?

I probably wouldn't buy one as I'd much rather spend that money on ingrediants to make 4-5 batches but if you're looking to get druck, I'd say opening one of those monsters would put someone on that path.
