Price of a case of beer

Posted on 12/30/2004 8:06:54 PM PST by BobP

What are we paying for our beer today? The price per-case just keeps rising it seems like everything else. Is there a "price of beer" site like the on for gasoline?

Any info on this topic would be great, and save me some money down the road.

If there's not, there should be. It's at least as important.

Finally a thread I can relate to!
Don't usually buy by the case, but a 12 pack of Bud is $10.99 here in MA. That include .60 for the environment.
Actually I was thinking yesterday that they have super sized beer packages. The 12 pack is now more common than a 6 pack, and the 30 pack seems to have replaced the tradition case of 24. Now bud also has 18 packs.

For mass-produced domestic beers in aluminum cans that appears to be the case.

When I drink that type of beer (usually on hot summer days) I drink Coors. In the winter I prefer the something darker and heavier. .....like some of the ales brewed up here in the Northwest.

I thought Hamms was brewed in Minnesota?

I haven't seen Olympia in a while, but I heard it's still around. Not a bad beer, from what I remember.

Ever had a Redhook?

Buy your Italian wines while you still can. Wholesalers have recently depleted their current stock, so the next stock will reflect the rise of the Euro against the dollar.

On the other hand, I don't see beer going up in price here in Seattle.

You're right about Hamm's it's from MN. I think I had it when I was in WA and just associated it with WA. I remember Oly kinda tasting like Coors a bit. It's the water west of the Mississippi. :)
Not sure about Redhook. I think I've seen it here in MA, but don't recall trying it. I'm a simple beer drinker. I splurdge during the summer when I'm sailing with either Red Stripe or Corona.

Never had a Redhook, though I see it all of the time. Recommended?

Having a couple of pints of Arrogant Bastard Ale (Stone Brewing Co., San Marcos outside San Diego), and it's BIG hops all the way. Not a hops guy personally, but this is good shi...uh, stuff. :-)

Yeah, all Redhooks are good, but get the ESB (Extra Special Bitter) if you find it. .....especially if you see it on tap anywhere.

Whoa! If there's any liquid substance worthy of the spilling of blood, it's beer.

I love ESBs, and finding a good one in the States is a goldmine. It's like finding a good porter, IMO, though porters are probably even a little easier to find. I'll have to pick up some Redhook (ESB is the only one I remember seeing here locally) next time I'm out. :-) Thanks!

I'm a lager fan, and in the NJ/PA area, it's hard to beat Yuengling. $5.29/sixpack at the corner store. Any of you guys ever tried it?

I've got about 6 cases brewing right now. A nice dark chocolate stout and a very rich porter are undergoing a secondary rack for another week or so.

The Apple Jack I made over Thanksgiving is mellowing nicely. Another month and it should be nice and smooth.

The mead I bottled last year is nearly gone. I don't know what's happening to it. It just seems to evaporate or something. Maybe it's space aliens coming into the house late at night, or they're sucking it into wormholes or something.

It doesn't help that I let a few close friends try it. Now every time they come over it's "Hey, got any more of that mead stuff left?" I should probably lie and say 'no' but it's just too darn good.

Any excuse to pop the cork is alright with me!

Gotta be careful with it though. The ABV is around 14% so it does pack a bit of a punch.

Cheers!

It was a blow when a case of 16s went from $2 to $2.25. How dare they?

When I was in high school circa 1988 you could get a case of Milwaukee's Best at the local Phar-mor for about $5.50 a case. They had 'em stacked to the ceiling.

A good mead is addictive as hell......... It goes way too fast. I've only made it once and it was sweet.

I like the procrastinator bock recipe.... I make it a couple times a year. Here's a link for it. I buy mine locally but they don't have a web site.

Stay safe !

My mead is a bit drier, and I do something a little special to it. I like to make mine sparkle. It takes a bit longer, but the product is worth it IMO.

I also add couple of pounds of maple syrup and 4 or 5 pounds of berrys to the boil. This time it was blueberries. It looks like a sparkly purple sunset, and the taste is hard to describe but it's wonderful.

The neighbor lady promised to perform unnatural acts on my person if I made her a case of it. I'm trying to get Mrs. L to see the offer my way.

If we ever get to gether, we'll crack a bottle.

Man, I moved from MA to Japan for a job. Japanese beer is kinda nasty. They sell Bud here, and I drink it a lot- but it costs me the equiv. of about $15 for a sixer of tall boys! I recently saw a case of 30 Bud bar bottles being sold for the equiv. of $60!!!

Want to go into business?
When I was in the Navy I was in Yokuska and Sasebo for a while. Man, you are right the beer is bad. Japanese burbon was even worse. That may be the real reason we nuker them.
The only good thing about their beer was the size of the bottles :)

I prefer German beer, especially St. Pauly Girl Dark.
I worked for 3 months in Stuttgart back in 2000, and found a local beer, Swabianbrau Das Swartze. Best beer I ever tasted. Black as soot, not bitter, and rich and full bodied. I can't find anything like back here in VA. Drank lots of it when I was in Germany. It was as cheap as Coca-Cola (and a lot more enjoyable).
