    They've been making the beer since 1838. If there are wines worth it, I don't see why a beer could not be worth it

    It's not the first time they've made the beer, it's the first time sold in the US

    20$ cigars - like Arturo Fuente Opus Opus X
    Bottles of wine that go through the stratosphere
    Cognac, whisky, champagne....why not beer??

    This isn't the type of stuff that you sit down and swizzle the 6 pack down in a couple of hours....

    Every year my wife gets me the Sam Adams winter mix pack... And every year I toss half of it. Right now I'm finishing off what's left and found a new one from them I quite like...a dunkelweizen. Very nice.

    I'm partial to dark ales, Belgians, hefeweizens, a good octoberfest...ect. Not a fan of IPA and stout. Haven't had a bud or similar since the last time I was at frat party ~15 years ago.

    Ommegang Hennepin Growler tonight.

    REgarding the 85 dollar six pack. Do you. It is not for me. Beer, to me, is something I like to drink, not sip from a snifter like brandy or wine. I enjoy good beer but I like to drink it like a beer. Beer is all made basically the same way. There are variations in techniques and ingredients but nothing that warrants an 85 dollar six pack to me. But this is America so do as you please!

    I mean to give no offense.....I would spend 80 bucks on a bottle of wine. But I drink wine differently than I drink beer....I expect something different from wine than beer, etc. If anyone gets this stuff.....let us know how it is. I would be interested to hear.

    Funny, I was there a few days before you posted this and they didn't throw us out at midnight...must be only Wednesdays they stay open late:cool: The ladies drank through their Local 1 stock before moving on to Chimay (they like bubbles) while the boys did the hop, belgian and sour tour. Very cool atmosphere and lots of entertainment from those who take their beer connoisseur status way too seriously. Great place for business strategy sessions.

    Last call is usually about 11:45 and they try to get most people out of there by just after 12. If they are having a good night, they might let people stay a little longer. Yes, the more serious beer enthusiasts can be amusing. I really only wanted my own mug, which is achieved at 125 beers. However, I lived in Albany at the time and my housemates and I were always keen to stop by and see what was new. It wasn't long before we all had an impressive number of beers on our lists. Glad you got to check it out.

    Sam Adams Cherry Wheat and Fat Tire this afternoon while wheelbarrowing dry wood into my stash in the garage.
    Actually broke a sweat while rather lightly dressed in 50 degree weather here in West Michigan.
    Amazing weather, my son just helped me put the plow on the truck today, still have not tested out the snow thrower,
    and the snow shovels are all still in the shop building.
    Barely even a trace of snow here yet this year, they said maybe some measurable snow by next weekend. I don't mind not having the snow.

    Being from the dairy state, I'm sipping on a Lake Louie Milk Stout, unfiltered, and made with Meister cheese lactose. If it was any thicker,
    you could walk on it.

    Made it to the pub in Albany last night and had a local cask Christmas beer. Also had some K-9 Winter Cruiser from Colorado which was very good. I will sample the Corsendonk Christmas next time.

    Currently making labels for the pumpkin-ginger beer I made for gifts.
