Craft beers are all the rage in the states. Beers that are meant to be savored, enjoyed, maybe even stored in the cellar for a while. This new phenominon may be due to diminishing beer sales, or maybe it’s just a new niche market to exploit. Either way, craft beers have surfaced which offer a new sophistication to the beer lover… as well as a much larger price tag. Some examples:
- Michelob brews “Celebrate” which goes for $10 per bottle and comes in at 10% alcohol by volume.
- The “Stone Imperial Russian Stout” from Stone Brewing is $9 per bottle at 10.8% alcohol by volume.
- Dogfish Head makes “Fort” for $16 per bottle which contains 18.5% alcohol by volume.
