I've paid damn near as much for stuff I've had before, for something I never see, I would have bought it. Here in PA they don't "import" 3F, some dumb PA LCB rule about only allowing so many craft brews from other states.

You should have smashed the bottles, punched him in the face, taken a dump on the floor, and one upped Hunter S. Thompson.

Bought cases at the brewery tonight for 35. But I'd rather pay 14 for gumball head than 7 for blue moon.

I've never had 3F for that reason. So many other great options for half the price. Brew a clone

Mind if I ask where you saw it? I occasionally see it out this way but it's been a couple weeks. Never seen that expensive though!

there a liquor store called qwikx. it just off rt 31 north of rt 72 its the road the runs behind spring hill mall. Main i think it is. I took 31 towards carpentersville and then made a left at the first intersection after the mall. then it right there on the right. they have a good variety of craft beer but some of it seem old. I got a bad bottle of un-earthly there. on tuesday the 28 mariano's fresh market is opening at gulf and barrington roads. They have a great selection of craft brew and excellent prices. Thats where i'll be going

They have no problem selling out of Gumballhead. One of the stores I go to sets a limit of two sixers per person. It's a good beer to try once or twice and then brew it yourself for 50 cents a bottle or less.

Yeah I've bought it there before but definitely not for that price. The guy the corner of 19/Shales said he occasionally gets it in but I've never seen it there.

Hes another one who like to over price his craft beer. I went in there to get a six of snake dog ipa and he want 12 bucks. Mariano's has it for 9.50
