Re: “Price-gouging on Venetucci Pumpkin Ale: Year two

I've seen other limited release beers go for outrageous prices at local liquor stores up here in Greeley, CO too. For example, earlier this year Crabtree Brewing put out their Menage a Trois - a braggot beer which sold for $6 a 12oz bottle to those who bought it early at the brewery release, but just a few miles away at a local Greeley liquor store, they were selling it at $18 a bottle. Outrageous yes, but it was a multi-award winning beer that people really liked. So yes, it just boils down to what the consumer is willing to buy. I imagine that if people keep buying the beer in the Springs at $18.99 then they will continue to sell it every year for that. Store owners can sell it for whatever they want, I have no problem with that, but if I want a beer that badly, I'd probably pay a higher price for that. The thing probably is, this way it almost forces people to only buy 1 bottle and therefore wouldn't be horded by 1 or 2 people who'd otherwise buy it all up and sell it on Craigslist or EBay for much more.
