Best Beer/Liquor Deal You've Ever Seen

This summer a friend of mine told me that the local liquor store had cases of Fat Tire for $9. I said, "You mean $9 per 12 pack." He assured me it was for a case. I drove there and discovered that not only was it indeed $12/case, but they were 16 ounce cans! I loaded up with 8 cases. I ended up going golfing and thought I should buy more. I stopped back after my round, but they were already sold out. The manager of the store said that guys were so happy that they were hugging him. People were buying 20-30 cases at once. They also had cases of New Belgium Ranger for $9, but that stuff is too hoppy for me.
It was so cheap because it was right at it's freshness date, but I've read where beer will still taste good for roughly 6 months after that date and even longer in some cases.
What is the best deal you've ever run across?

I love Fat Tire! It's not the best beer in the world, but BeerAdvocate rates it an 82. It's not Pliny the Elder, but it's not Natty Light either.

Fat tire is one of the most over hyped beers ever, solid deal though.

To play this game I use to live down the road from an on the run in college, one day while in there one of the workers mis rang up a case of beer for like 4 dollars, went back and got all they had in the cooler and rolled out spending about 60 bucks.

Three bottles of wine for $10 at Marcello's. They usually have a lot of stuff that ladies like to drink (reislings, pinot gris, etc.) I load up on that stuff.

It's a year round deal.

Every once in a while I will see that some at the loacl Albertsons loads up the "make you own 6-pack" shelf with Ruination, so I usually make my own 6-pack of it for $8.99 and then grab a bomber of something "for free".

Back in college I scored 2 cases of Killian's Red long necks for $9.99 per at the asian mart across from Tigerland.

But the king of all deals was just after Hurricane Andrew at Circle K across from Cane's on Highland at the North gates. We were throwing a hurricane party and I was tasked with picking up the keg. I asked how much a keg of Bud Light was and the cashier responds with "12.99 go get". I tried to clarify that I wanted a big metal barrel of beer. Again, "12.99 go get". I returned from the cooler with a half-barrel of BL on his dolly. "This is what I want. How much?" "$12.99" comes the answer. I bought 5, no deposit.

I work for a liquor distributor, and a few years ago someone figured out that they could take a case of crown royal gift sets at walmart to the register and the UPC on the side of the box was for a single bottle....... they sold about 25 cases before the store figured it out......

Went to Bogies a couple years ago around the holidays and saw they had Delierlum Noel in their fridge. Asked how much for the Noel and had to literally go behind the counter to point out what I was talking about.

They had no idea what the beer was so sold it to me for normal BMC price ($3). Had 4 that night.

This is awesome. I would have made a killing on something like that since I used to be the one that acquired the kegs for the party and then charged everybody $5 for an all you could drink plastic cup.

For awhile, there were $10 off coupons for 30 packs of keystone floating around. Eventually walmart and the grocery stores figured it out but for 3 or so months, we drank the shite out of $7 keystone 30 packs.
