  1. I tried this for the first time the other day. A 3oz taster cost me 3 bucks (not a typo). I feel that if you need to sell your beer for roughly a dollar per ounce just because it’s as boozy as sailor on leave, the brewer might just be showing off. How boozy/expensive can we make this beer and people will still buy it. Maybe it’s an economics lesson, but I don’t like feeling like a rube.

    • I totally agree. It was an expensive lesson for me to learn, but I think I’m gunna be steering away from these kinds of things in the future.

  2. I don’t get 120. 60 and 90 are pretty solid beers, and the 75 (a mix of the two) is excellent. The 120 is just overkill; it’s not even palatable to me.

    I used to go to the Dogfish Head brew pub in Gaithersburg, MD. A buddy of mine had a single 120 in about a 10 minute span. We found him asleep in the bathroom 25 minutes later. ‘Nuff said.

    Have you had their shelter pale? I think it’s the best DFH, next to Raison D’Etre.

    • I hear you loud and clear good buddy. Beer should make you excited and happy, not droopy and nap-y. (Yay, a rhyme!) I haven’t had either the shelter pale or the Raison D’Etre, but I’m always on the lookout for a new DFH. I’ll bump these to the top of the list.
