Singled Out

  Something that Brian McCabe, of Hops & Grapes, said back when I did the “Glassboro Has Got It” post was really interesting.  For some reason I had never thought about it too much,  but it really is great that microbrews are sold by the bottle.

   Think about how expensive it would be to try a new craft beer if you could only get them in a six-pack.  Most six packs these days run between $7 and $10 dollars for a craft brew.  That isn’t too bad if you know you already like a beer but it may make you think twice before buying one you don’t know.  So the single bottle is a great thing because it is way more affordable at about$1.50 to $3 a bottle.  Most stores do a make your own six-pack thing, which is great because you can make your own six-pack out of whatever the store has to offer.  So thank you to microbreweries who know it’s quality and not quantity, you have the true beer drinkers in mind.  Bottoms Up!



  1. Only until the last several years have I been able to do the mix-a-six thing here in Western PA. Even now only at very few and far between “bottle shops”. It can be frustrating as a microbrew advocate for certain. And even mixing six still isn’t cheap per bottle with current hop prices (usally $1.95 to $3.50 per bottle around here).

    I especially like being able to mix a nifty six pack of seasonal microbrews(like now since the Fall pumpkin and Oktoberfest beers are coming out).
