Well, in an Irish pub I go to, you can have a Chimay Bleu bottle of 750 ml for... 22$! Which nobody pays because you can buy it for half the price in the liquor store... Now that think about it, their reserve of Chimay Bleu must be well-aged now...

Oh and 9$ for a Rogue Dead Guy Ale .

Needless to say, I prefer to buy local beers when I go there...

$20 bucks for a steak I can grill on my patio, exactly how I like it done (which no restaurant has ever managed to do) for less than half that? The beer doesn't seem so bad. At least the steak wouldn't take me 6 months minimum to make like a good barleywine would. Hell, the way I like my steaks cooked, 6 minutes would be a stretch.

Three Floyds Behemoth Barleywine is $16 for a bomber at the liquor store. Awesome beer though.

Hey, that's a cheap hamburger and fries in NYC. A full steak dinner, 40 bucks. 16 bucks for a good aged beer doesn't seem too bad.

Three years old? Sheesh... for that much money, the least they can do is give you something FRESH!

For my birthday last week, I had a 10oz bottle of Old Ale aged 16yrs in Scotch Barrels. Ran me $14. They had a 20yr for $20 bucks, and a 1990 English Barleywine for about the same price.

Depends what Barleywine it was really. But honestly I spend $15 a bottle about 2 times a month. The price of beer doesn't really bother me anymore. If I know I'm getting something new and something that gets rave reviews I have no problem spending to try it. My buddy and I are having new beer night tomorrow which we'll likely spend about $60 total on maybe 4 or 5 beers.

Quality is worth the price and unless you eat at home all the time ...

Most I've spent on a bottle is $28 for one bomber. That was shipped from Oregon, but still, $21 for the beer an $7 for the shipping. Then split the bottle with my wife. Sure it's not what I'd do for my everyday drinking, but it's nice occasionally.
