Ran into Matherne's on Bluebonnet and they were setting up the stack of it.

Just got 2 6packs from matherne's as well. Looks like they had 5-6 cases left.

Ran into the mockler guy at albertsons on airline/highland this morning, they are getting 10cases Thursday.

Picked up two cases at mathernes. Cuban will have it tomorrow. Calandros said they wouldn't have it until next week.

Wish we could get a local discount. I can see paying $10 for a six pack of something from Cali but paying that for a 5% beer from down the road doesn't make as much sense to me.

I agree, but if it sells out quickly, then he probably isn't charging enough.

Exactly. I think this stuff is $8/pint at bulldog.

I'm not here to tell him how to run his business. Just stating that the pricing seems a little off. What's Abita cost? 8.99-7.99 depending on what store you're at?

And Shiner costs 6.99. I don't think that Canebrake is that much better than Shiner or Abita Amber to justify the cost increase and I think there are much better beers for 9.99 a sixer. But obviously there are plenty of people that want to support a local business and are more than willing to pay that.

Yep. I like it certainly more than 25 cents/bottle more than Amber. I like to support Louisiana companies and it's something different.

Retail prices are not set by the brewery. Just like the Grand Reserve, some stores are probably setting the price higher.
