Who'd pay $33 for a 6 pack? Bomber prices gone wild!
Maybe you don’t want to read this post. In fact, if you are content with paying $10 for a bomber of good beer abandon ship now!
OK, so you’re probably already aware of what I’m about to tell you. Buying beer by the bomber is incredibly expensive compared to the relative price in other forms. For example, a bomber that costs just $10 is the equivalent of a $33 6 pack! Wow!
Don’t get me wrong, I’m going to continue to buy bombers until the cows come home. Sometimes certain beers are only available in bombers. Sometimes I only want 22 oz and not a whole 6er. Sometimes I think to myself, “a decent wine bottle of this size would cost twice as much!” and justify it to myself that way. No matter which way I slice it, a bomber is often worth the dough.
Still it was an interesting thought experiment. Use the tool below to see how much you're spending. You can also put in the cost of your 5 gallons of homebrew and see what that comes out to.
