You are severely underestimating me there... (Dear gods please tell me you can actually check the stats...)

Not to that level of detail......

A quick check on the date calculator tells us that from Nov.1 2009(Don’t know exact date Seul joined) to today gives us 4190 days. If he made at least 2 posts every day that translates to 8380,and then if you factor in all of us who get a notification every time he posts,and immediately head to the thread to see what he’s drinking today,and if that’s just a mere 25 forum members, you can account for 209,500 of the hits right there. These are conservative estimates so he might just be directly/indirectly responsible for half the hits on this thread.

Knowing Seul definitely causes people to drink, so you may be onto something there.

Yeah they were around 10-12€ here as well... And you know what?.. I think I'm done buying US IPAs... Hoping UK distribution will be rolled out asap, and otherwise (D)IPA-wise I'll just keep an eye out for Basqueland, Piggy Brewing, Folkingebrew, Apex Brewing Company, Rock City, Atelier der Braukünste,...

@neph93 Equilibrium is one of the higher priced beers available to me. Usually 20-24$ a four pack. I’ve never had an IPA that I would pay 15$‘s for. What is the price difference from your local breweries?

Retail is $7. The store I get it from has a beer club, for frequent buyers. That knocks 10% off. Bottom line, $6.30. Personally, I wouldn't pay much more. $15 would be an easy pass.

I think @Seul has the right idea. There are plenty of brewers, on your side of the pond, dropping equally delicious IPAs, at prices that won't kill your budget. There's no reason to chase US IPAs. Even if I had access to the stuff you guys get over there, I'd certainly pass on paying the premium. On a weekly basis, I have access to IPAs from the likes of BlackStack, Equilibrium, Hop Butcher, Other Half, and Phase Three, just to name a few favorites. Most of their offerings are quite lovely, and there are plenty of them, to keep my fridge stocked constantly.
