Rogue is one of the more expensive micros in Montana as well...although it isn't as bad as $15 a sixer for Dead Guy....it is around $10. 

I have seen their 22 oz. bottles for around $15, though....some of their bigger offerings.  Too pricey for me.

I really don't buy much bottled micros, though....thats what homebrew is for!  My intake of micros is usually limited to a couple of pints at the tavern.

I'm a cheapskate, so I generally buy these beers once...if I really like them, $15 bucks will almost buy enough raw materials to do a whole batch of a clone for most beers!  There are a few beers, and a few styles, that I still buy commercially from time to time.  But 15 bucks for a sixer, I don't pay that much for my yearly purchase of Bigfoot!  Speaking of...is that out?  I better not have missed it this year!
I still got a couple bottles of 2009 bigfoot. 8)

Beer is like porn. You can buy it, but it's more fun to make your own.

Even with the AHA discount, the Rogue Distillery and public house is the most expensive brewery-owned pub in Portland (next to the Rogue-owned Green Dragon, that is).

Maybe the yeast is special or its a family strain or it came from the dead?   :D
