Stone Brewing Co. If you didn't have anyone to profess your undying love to today, this announcement will fix that. It's official: Stone IPA 12 pack. Coming in March. We love you too.Posted ImageNice. And also, about goddamn time.

Shouldn't cost more than about $20 to $25.

Unless they do 12ers of Ruination.

I was being facetious. They charge $12 a sixer for Stone around here. Just not worth it.

Really? Have you had Ruination, or Stone's Russian Impy Stout, or the Smoked Porter? I've not had anything from Rogue that would even come close to the Impy Stout or Porter. Maybe I need to sample more Rogue products though. :D

Don't get me wrong, I like Rogue, too. But Stone is one of my favorites, and around here it's about 8 bucks a sixer, so $16-20 works great for me.

Stone is great but again...too pricey on their 6 packs IMHO. Especially when everything is line priced, Levitation, Pale, and IPA 6 packs all come in the same, that in itself should drive the price to a more reasonable number. Their bombers are not too bad though. Speaking of just got some Old Guardian in today.

Levitation should be a $9 sixer not the $13 it is around here.

WHAT!? Stone is dirt cheap over in Chicago (as far as craft beer goes) and EVERY beer they make is crisp and delicious. The only beer I've ever had from them that I didn't like was one of their Vertical Epics, and that just cause it wasn't my style. I honestly can't say the same for Rouge.

Yea, craft beer in Chitown seems on average $9.99/6 pack Beer out here in Colorado is still pretty reasonable but as with everything it raises bit by bit every year. I charge $9.29 for something like Avery IPA and since I run a small shop prices are inflated since I don't have the luxury of the bulk discounts and such. I could see the extra dollar or so for Stone being somewhat because of their screen printed bottles.

Gotta say Stone makes some pretty tasty beers, and, as the Arrogant Bastard says, "Its not expensive, you're just cheap!"PS, I like most Rogue beers as well.
