Used to be some barleywines would come in 7 oz "nips." It made sense to buy stronger beers is smaller containers, now most of the RIS and BW come in bombers.

My fridge is full of bombers because I don't have some to drink them with often enough.

In my experience, people aren't willing to spend 5-7 dollars on a 12 ounce bottle of beer but will have no problem pulling the trigger on a 12-15 dollar bomber of the same stuff.

I left it out of my article, but the prices of the larger bottles make no sense either. A lot of time the 4 pack costs less per ounce than the bomber. Goose Island is a great example. I bought the 4 pack of Sophie for $12.99. The bombers were going for $10.99.

It doesn't make any sense.

Find a place that selling individual 12 ounce bottles and the price per ounce difference will mostly wash out. IMO Either way, if you are getting your panties in a bunch over the price per ounce of beer, you shouldn't be buying beer in the first place...

That's why it was left out of the article
