What is the most expensive bottle of beer you have ever purchased? How much did it cost and what was it? Also, what was your reason for buying it? I know that more than one question, but it will be interesting to see the responses.

Terrible and Chimay, about 10-12 bucks for a big bottle, I think they are 22 ouncers. I bought some nice beers in Belgium and the netherlands, but they were way cheaper than over here.

Harviestoun's Old engine Oil. $3 for a 12oz bottle but it is AMAZING stuff.

pick up a bottle if you ever see it, it's worth the extra money.

Rogue Morimoto Imperial Pilsner. $14 for a 750ml bottle.

A good beer, but certainly not worth that much.

A local Store is asking $10 for 12oz of Skullsplitter... But the most expensive I have purchased recently was Quelque Chose which was almost $12 for 750ml

Chimay easily $9 at the time, but I did purchase a large 3 qt bottle of Leffe Blonde for $25.00 once.

ooh...you got ripped off

i think the most expensive beer is belgian styles that i mail-ordered from John's Grocery. upwards of $13 for some 750 mL bottles, plus shipping. Got some great beers, although some of them tasted like they were not stored correctly.

among the list were:

Goliath
Beiken
Satan Red
Lucifer
Kwak

and lots of other good stuff i don't remember
