I was at my local store and picked up a bottle of dupont saison recently. While I was there, I noticed that a few breweries had lines of similiarly sized large format bottles, but these were all barrel aged super-fancy beers. What seemed really…interesting…was the price tag. Bottles in the mid $30’s? One of my favorite things about beer is that I can get so many amazing beers for less than the price of a bottle of mediocre wine.
Is that sort of pricing normal, or that something new?
