Stopped by today. Bought a 6 pack of Brooklyn Lager...$10.19. I was not expecting $10.19...Should I have?

    i think i just paid $7 for a rack of PBR tall boys.
    unless someone knows of place selling it cheaper not too far away i think it's OK.

      For what it's worth, Brookline Liquor Mart down the street sells a 6 of Brooklyn Lager for $8.99 + deposit. So that does sound like a modest markup, but not an extortionate one.

        Glad to hear that they're finally allowed to sell beer, I'll have to stop by. That sounds like a lot for Brooklyn Lager... did they have the Pilsner?

          $10.19 is definitely a lot for Brooklyn Lager. It used to be in the $8 range elsewhere but that was before the prices of groceries and a lot of other goods skyrocketed due to the freight costs to deliver the product.

          Besides being a little overpriced, I find Public House Provisions to be the best beer store in Boston. The selection is excellent and everything is in coolers. I tend to do things spontaneously and appreciate being able to pick up cold craft beer. Most good beer stores keep there craft beer warm.
