Default Is all dogfish head beer expensive?

I went to my local liqure store and saw dogfish head for the 1st time. It was their 90 minute ipa. The price tag was $15 plus tax for a 4 pack!!

I think that's par for the coarse. 60min is $10 / 6er. Thats average. Check out their 120 min or stout. Some of those are $8 to $12 per bottle. You get what you pay for!

Good beer isn't cheap that's for sure.

Local brewer Epic here in Salt Lake makes some FANTASTIC beers. This one was delish http://www.epicbrewing.com/our-beers...ess-on-peaches but price wasnt cheap. 13 dollars for 1 22oz bomber.

15 Canadian dollars? That's still really expensive. Good stuff though.

yes 15 canadian. I've been waiting to try that beer and have heard it excellent, but I just cant push myself to spend that much on a 4 pack. There are so many excellent european beers that are so cheap and tasty that you can find in the liqure stores around here. Maybe I'll have to bite the bullet and pick it up. Is it actually that good? Usually when I spend that kind of money its on a 4 pack of guinness draught.

Dogfish heads prices are basically matching their ABV. World Wide Stout is $35 a 4 pack but it's 18% ABV.

I think food prices in general have gone up over the last 6-12 months

FYI, Canadian is worth more than US now. So yes, that's expensive, but a lot of that has to do with taxation.

Jason, where did you find this? I have family in Yarrow, and there isn't a decent beer in the whole town.
