Nah, hipsters, such as Lefty, only buy cheap beer. Like PBR cheap.

If you valued the goblets on the low-end at say $15 each, that makes the 6-pack worth about $55 and each bottle around $9.00 each. If you were out at one of those hoity toity hipster bars you could easily pay that much for a PBR Tall-Boy assuming you include a tip...

I was saving for the Jameson Rarest Vintage Reserve...and I just spent about $100.00 last weekend on a bottle of Absinthe I hadnt planned on buying...

EDIT:...Nevermind...I just called the liquor store and they sold out within the first 1/2 hour...I just couldnt wrap my head around $85.00 for a six...is it made with angel pee?
Its real beer that is brewed vs the mass produced 'beer' made elsewhere. They only make limited quantities to meet the financial needs of the monestry (ie not maximising profit) and rarely exported.

FCR, Uni, 813 cams, Works shocks, drilled Ricor valves, Pieman ignitor, green springs, Beringer caliper, preds, damper, brace, Corbin, custom tinware, JMC swingarm, Brembo radial M/C, oil cooler, rearsets, clip ons, tubeless rims, Acewell, T/Clamp

I wish the hipsters would get the heck out of my PBR. Lately I've been buying the 12 packs of sweetwater for $18 including tax. $1.50 a beer versus $15. Just a wag it does not taste 10 times better than Sweetwater.

It can't be the flavor. Must be some other existential thing.

Does it give you multiple orgasms?

The monastery by Canyon City here in Colorado produced cider and closed shop a few years back. Not sure if it was because of poor cider sales or a lack of monk-power.

Nice brick building for sale if anybody is interested.
