I just got three of these at $8 each. But for a limited time, you can get one of them for $25. Beer scalpers, gotta love them.

or you could go for the Bourbon County - 2005-2017 - Complete Set, 43 bottles - for the space friendly price of $4350

Crazy to think that someone might drop that much for beer

Sure, but what were your favorite dopplebocks, witbiers, and pilsners?

I don't drink dopples or witbiers, but I'm sure I could make at least a top five of pilsners.

So one 12 oz bottle is $6.61 US and a four pack is less that a bomber. As Tweedy would sing, "We've Been Had."

I recently had a couple pints of Victory Moonglow Weizenbock on draft, and I was blown away. It's the best beer I've had this year, but I don't try nearly as many beers as StoneTheCrow or Space Freely, I'm sure.

Good call on that one. Definitely an old favorite of mine, though I haven't had it in a couple of years.

folks in Columbia, and frankly all of you, should be excited about this new brewery opening in mid-2018:  https://sapwoodcellars.com/

i know the two guys behind it, mike tonsmeire and scott janish, through the DC Homebrewers Club - and their numerous publications.  mike literally wrote the book on sour beers and scott's blog is a must-read for beer science dorks (he knows more about the chemistry of hops than arguably anyone else).  per my chats with them, the plan is to make ridiculously hoppy beers to pay the bills in order to finance the sour beer operation.

having tried many of their beers over the years, i have absolutely no doubt that these guys are going to kick all sorts of ass.  keep an eye out for them...
