I have been stocking up my beer fridge for the Holidays and when I have gone out seeking some of the classic seasonal brews from our micro-brew friends, I find that a lot of them have gone to a 4 pack or a 20oz bottle and the price per oz of beer is about double or more! I know costs have gone up, but come on....... why do away with the 6 pack?
My local 'huge' beer selection store if removing 6 pack space and bringing in more 20oz beers. I get most folks want to try as many as possible, but 20oz?
Well anyway, it makes my case for brewing my own to save money even stronger. I make a clone of one of the beers that was changed to a 4 pack, it it use to cost $40 a case, now it costs $60+, I can make it for less than $25 a case even using bottled water!
