Location Location Location.

It's about $4.50 for a 473 mL bottle (a pint) here.

I think that's in the range of $180 for 5 gallons commercially.

Doesn't the OP's "" suggest he is happy with this development?

Not sure what the hop bill is on this bad boy, too druck to find it on the Austinhomebrew site, but I'd imagine that's where the cost comes in. You might do better buying locally, but as Forest say, his one of his goals is to make stuff available to people in remote areas at a decent price.

I've never had Pliny the Elder, guess I need to try some of it.

If RR growlers are still $17, about $162.
