Let’s talk about economics.
At Winco, I saw a 3 variety pack of Monkless ales for about $28 (I’m rounding up).
Around the corner, where I bought this Monkless Dubbel of Nothing (a Belgian dubbel style ale, go figure) I saw this beer, and the other two beers-this one for $7, another for $7 and another for $8 (again, all rounded up).
Now, I know most of you were told there would be no math, but the fact of the matter is that buying the three beers individually would’ve left you with enough money to get a fourth beer.
I really have to wonder what’s going on there. What is someone thinking? A sucker born every minute?
That’s a pretty gross way to treat your customers.
On top of all of that, the beer itself is just ok. It has some of the chocolate and dried fruit flavors in the middle, but the nose and the back end all have a hint of paper to them, making me believe this beer has gone a little stale.
So there’s a method to overcharge people, for beer that isn’t at its best? Hmmm….
