Default $16 Barleywine...

Was out to dinner last night and they had Barleywine for $16 a bottle. I had to laugh.

When I went to the Dogfish Head pub in Delaware recently I paid 16 bones for a 3 year old bottle of Old School Barleywine

Is $16 a lot? I don't get it.

Depends on the barleywine, depends on if it's a pint or a bomber or a 12 ounce bottle. Expensive to drink at restaurants, markups are high, we all know that. Still cheaper than drinking decent wine!

Considering you could brew it yourself for maybe 80 cents a glass I thought it was kind of funny.

$16 is a lot for a barleywine in my book, but it's nice to drink beer from breweries instead of homebrew all the time. I buy Old Guardian for $6.99 a bottle, and while I can brew it cheaper it won't be the same thing. That's not to say that homebrew can't be better than commercial, but it's nice to buy good beer.

What did you eat and what did you pay for it?

Ingredient costs for a burger and fries is about $1.00. In my area they charge $10 for that with table service. Crazy, huh?

I've paid more than that for a bomber of beer. Heck on occasion I've paid more than that for a 12 ouncer of beer. I'll probably pick something up on Friday in that range for my birthday beer. It's nice to treat yourself on occasion.

$16 is not a lot to pay if you are treating yourself to something great by a great brewery.
