Grocery Store Beer
« on: December 22, 2015, 10:03:12 PM »
I'm old enough to remember 30 racks of AB INBEV style beers being all you could get at grocery stores. This is a new high for me:

Does the price say $16.00?
It's too close to home

That's the unit price. It's $6.50 per bottle. Pretty standard.

Used to be a lot cheaper but Rochefort 10 is $6.99 in Texas right now. Still. mmmm

The Rochefort 6 is the most expensive in my area at $7.25. That's because of its limited production.

Your lucky! The 6 is always the most expensive anywhere I've ever bought it. Makes sense. Rochefort makes the least 6 compared to the 8 and 10.

The 10 is $6.99 here in Iowa also. Such a GREAT beer. Someone was telling me recently that that stuff is crazy cheap for a case in Belgium or somewhere in Europe. I was jealous as hell.

Even by the standards of our day (i.e. "Craft" beer everywhere) Wegmans is a cut above. They put all the bottle shops in the area to shame.

Sorry folks. In Belgium available in any supermarket for 2.30 US$. And better than Westy.
