2002 Sam Adams Chocolate Bock. It was around $50 if I recall.

It was phenomenal.

I don't remember, but yes, I'm sure it was worth it.

I bought something with a small sailboat on it that was really sour for like $11 that wasn't worth it (pannepot??), but I'm sure I've spent more than that...

Apparently I'm a cheap bastard. I get all bent paying $13 for a 4 pack.

However.

Few weeks ago I was in my favorite beer store and was joking with the girl about the $13 for 4 Yeti Stouts and she was like "we got some barley wine for $8 a bottle" and me being a fan of the Flying Dog barley wine said "POINT ME TO IT" and bought one.

Well it tasted nothing like my Horn Dog barley wine. I didn't like it, forget the name but I didn't like it My wife laughed.

I was lucky enough to grab a sip from a 750ml of Scaldis Prestige that a few friends went in on (cost them $50). It was a damn good beer, but I personally wouldn't pay that.

$35 for a 330ml of RR Beatification at Monk's Kettle. Yes it was worth it. The next night I drank a few Consecrations at Toronado on tap for $4 each so I think it evened out.

I think my most expensive bottle was the twelve dollars or so for Chimay red. I think it was worth it.

Yeager and I are into this years Utopia batch for around $250 for 10-ish gallons. If it's as good as last years it will definately be worth it.

(That's just for the grains, yeast, bottles and propane butn doesn't count the $250 for the barrels to age it in. We'll be able to reuse them for a few years.)

Golden Valley's IPA Brut, $15/bottle. Bought a case. Well worth it, but it didn't age well.
