As I do get a fair few bottled beers though I do care about the price of craft bottled beers, and I don't see how some of them can justify their inflated prices.
An example is Thornbridge's version of Courage Imperial Russian Stout, a beer I was keen to try, until I saw it on sale for over £13 for a small bottle.
Thanks to Tim O'Rourke lots of breweries have made versions of this beer and prices have varied widely, most not excessive, and this is certainly the most outrageous I've seen.
OK, it's a strong beer, there's more ingredients, long maturation and it's in a specialist beer shop. But in another specialist beer shop, which also had some ultra-pricey craft beers, Harvey's Imperial Russian Stout, brewed to a traditional recipe and matured for a year, sells for £3.25.
Both beers are in brown glass bottles so there's no excuse of expensive containers. The only reason I can see for the huge price of some bottled craft beers is people milking the over enthusiasm of some beer geeks for certain brands for all it's worth.
