Was this at Binny's? I'm surprised they couldn't do the math on that.

Chances are they all got there because something went "boom".

Hard to sell a six pack when only 4 survived. This is how the mix and match came to be. Broken inventory used to get sent back to the distributor.

no i work for a high end grocery store in palatine il and we have a very large craft brew section and a lot of what we have on stock is on that shelf, i think it was more of a not paying attention to the price issue.

Kroger used to regularly have Two Hearted and Three Floyds brews in the mix-a-six section. A six pack of Two Hearted was 11.49 on the shelf but just like the OP the mix-a-six price was 8.99. Yeah they stopped doing that...can still get some nice deals though. Stone Levitation was in there last time...

Yeah... The wegmans near me did that the first year they were in business. Mis and match was 10 and they had things like union jack and dfh 90 min in there. Now they smartened up and only have the cheaper imports and craft beer in the selection... And bumped the price to 12. I was there at least once week for a year before they caught on
