Default The Most You Have Paid For One Beer?

After seeing Panzermans $11 each Dogfish Head 120 IPA, I gotta know. And what was it? Was it worth it? Was it good beer or fancy packaging?

Buying beers at bar rooms (even gourmet beer bars), concerts, games and the like, where beer is way over priced anyway, doesn't exactly count, but go ahead anyway.

Me? I may have paid $17 for a six pack. $2.50 per beer. Can't even recall what it was. Wait, Mississippi Mud may have been $3.00 or so each.

You're drinking cheap beers man! Chimay Grande Reserve @ $14.69 + tax and deposit is the only one I can remember in exact figures. I think that I have purchased a $20 bottle of Three Philosophers once.

Fat, lazy, retired ninja edit: Oh, TOTALLY worth it by the way. Especially the Chimay.

I spent $20+ for a couple Lambics. It was worth it to me. I think of it relative to a bottle of wine.

$23 bottle of Cantillon Grand Cru and the same price for there Gueuze at the Palm Tavern. Best $23 I've ever spent.

I bought a six-pack of Ruination for ~$16 a couple of times, but...

The most expensive beer I ever bought was a 12 oz. of DFH 120 min. IPA for $8.50. Not only was it not worth the money, it might have been the worst beer I've ever had. As I've said before "It was like eating the dirt under a pine tree."

I love to quote myself.

I was doing one of those make your own six pack deals and I grabbed a bottle of DFH Raison D'Extra. It rang up for $12.99.

Rochefort 10 runs about $7.50 for a 11.2 oz bottle. So price per ounce, that's the most I've paid, but dang worth it. Good thing I can make my own now.
