Yes prices are effin ridiculous in this city I call home. In manhattan it is common to pay anywhere up to $9 for a 12oz of corona and 6-8 for BMC etc. This is in the lounge/nightclubs of the city though. Bars in manhattan commonly do charge around 4-5 for BMC and nice craft and macros for anywhere from 6-12+ depending on "exclusivity" In BK queens PBR tall boys can be had for 3.50-4$ but also not outrageous to pay $5 for one. And the crafts are commonly $7 and same thing exclusive or hoppy etc price goes up.

Good thing is prices for grain and hops etc are pretty much the same as everywhere else so the cost effectiveness of brewing your own here is much higher.



My desire to drink craft brews and try as many different kinds as possible has increased dramatically since I started brewing though. Causing my wallet and my liver.... And kidneys.....and uhhhmm that big electrical thing in your head...oh yea! My brain. to hate me.

That is the beauty of NyC we are able to access a lot of beers from areas quite far away. If you have the dough to pay for em. Like my last post for example. 12$ was a little crazy. But it was a very good beer that I enjoyed. Not very bitter but with a ton of hop fresh flavor and aroma.
If I recall correctly, weren't there Heady limited releases to NYC, Boston, and Philly some time last year? I recall reading that somewhere (may have been on BeerPulse or something).

DC is a lot like NYC in that regard. You can get a lot of crazy stuff, if you're willing to fork out the change. DC also allows grey market sales, so a local beer bar had a full flight of Russian River over the summer. A single 10 oz pour of Pliny was $10. Their sours were 10 oz for $16.
