Reschs was going down like a fat kid on a seesaw when it came out and was ~$48 a case, but now my bottle o has been flogging it for $65 and haven't got it since.

Also a member of the Appreciation society
$65 for a case of Reschs or Newtowner. Tough choice that one.

Thing that shits me most about craft beer is their stupid 16/20 can cases. They do it to pretend the price point is closer.

I know I'm paying more, I just want 24 in the fucking box.

Depends. If it's higher ABV stuff then 16 is better imo. I only have one or two at a time and best had fresh if something like an IPA.

Well I'm in the St George area and my local is either Hurstville or Wolli Creek. If you're talking beer, it's Reschs.
OK. Was just responding to Addy saying his local charged $65.

$55 is still high for a mass produced beer but that's just my opinion.

I don't disagree with that, but less cans means I need to go to the bottle shop more. I'd rather pay the 100 for 24 than the 70 for 16. Has no impact on how I drink them.

And they make them 330ml . That's the one that really pisses me off. Just about have to double load because it feels like you're constantly up for another

Yeah with you on that, I refuse to buy 330ml.

Most high ABV stuff I buy is in 440ml cans, if not bigger.

Every time I start looking at buying a few craft beers to try I end up just saying **** it an buying a carton of bulk beer because I’m cheap

Also to clarify for covid talk does that go in the beer thread now?

Every covid thread on the known internet is at boiling point with people blowing up about vaccines, borders and governments.

We're discussing craft beer prices 😂
