    Good scotches are one of my weaknesses.

    Just as a note, the Utopias is 27% ABV. What is that...47 proof?

    Anyhoo, I don't normally buy beers like this. Once in a blue moon kinda thing. I've got a mortgage! :p

    Oh...wow. That's dedication to the hobby, for real.

    I'm not sure how much I'd pay, but I'm with D_C.--I know it wouldn't be that much.

    If, however, I ever saw it at a beer festival, I'd intentionally overindulge even if I didn't dig it.

    I'd have to max out around 10 bucks for a GOOD beer. Though I would like a report on how the Utopias drinks.

    I've had it and it's spectacular. It's sadly the best beer Ive had as well, and I can rarely buy it. Oh well, Boston Lager for me.

    More like 54 proof. Plus I'm pretty sure a lot of the cost here is from that fancy collectible container it comes in.

    I remember seeing something on TV about that beer. It sounds good, but no way I would pay $135 for it.

    The most I have ever paid for a beer is $13.

    the best beer I have had is delirium, and it cost about 6-7 bucks a beer, and has about 9.5%, three beers and i'm a happy camper and thinking of stupid things to do. I love that beer.

    I think the most I ever paid for a beer was $5 for a beer that had been made with hops shot into space. I think it was 24oz to boot.

    After you've had enough, it doesn't matter much what beer it is anyway.
