re: Parish now selling $24 4 packs
Once you start just grabbing a jucifer or ghost off the shelf and settling on that (and I say that as someone that has ghost on draft at their house), I feel like you start missing an aspect of what initially made this craft beer game fun. I have this conversation with some buddies all the time about some of the fun being taken out of the game by people just throwing money at everything. There was a time when money didn’t matter and the hunt for the beer was part of the fun. When drinking the beer was more than the beer, but also an experience. I’ll be out there Saturday ready to drink lots of overpriced beer with great friends and enjoy every second of it.

What made craft beer fun? For me it was 1) trying new things 2) sharing new things with friends -- probably in that order

At no point was it spending the max on a product. That never made me happy. I have tried many beers, some good, some bad, some expensive, some cheap, and in my experience I never found that beers priced disproportionate to their price, availability, and, most importantly, context, brought me more satisfaction. And there are so many possible craft beers nowadays that I couldn't even begin to settle for grabbing just one all the time. But there are those fridge mainstays.

I bet this/these beers are good. But I bet I can find equally good beers for less. I will have to deal with the "FOMO" of not "ticking" these "rare" beers, but I think I'll be okay. After all. I live in Boston. I can buy pretty good IPAs for cheaper than what Parish is charging (despite Boston breweries paying prime real estate costs and Parish paying real estate costs in the booming metropolis of...wait...Broussard?), and I've had my share of adjunct stouts too. I keep saying this. If you're paying more for beer in Broussard than you are in Boston, you're doing something fundamentally wrong. You can trade for New England IPAs FROM NEW ENGLAND for the same price as buying them in Broussard.

re: Parish now selling $24 4 packs
I can definitely appreciate where you’re coming from, but doesn’t this really just come down to supply/demand at the end of it?

Are we really trying to argue down the demand artificially? Don’t a shite ton of people want to try these beers regardless of the high sticker price?

I’m sitting in the camp of the free market dictating what does and doesn’t sell, and at what price points.

I’ve been drinking craft beer for like 5-6 years and this will be my first Parish special release. I really liked what I had from OH while they were doing all the collabs down here the past several weeks, and I’m quite curious to see what the top end of the LA market is like. I’ll hit up Parish Saturday, share much of the beer I buy from them with friends, and be content judging on my own whether it was worth the price. Hell, I’ll be stopping by Bayou Teche, Hopfest, and maybe one or two others throughout the day. I’m just as excited to try whatever they have on tap as the pricey stuff I’ll be getting from Parish.

I bought a 4-pack of Gnarvana at Rouse’s yesterday on my way home from work. A hair over $3/12 oz can. And I think that’s absolutely worth it. It’s a fantastic beer. Compared to $4.5/12 oz on these releases, I’m not sure the upcharge is worth what everyone is freaking out about.

You work and get free beer from Trillium. You have also stood in lines at Parish while visiting LA. You make no sense.

That was fun for me 4 or 5 years ago, but there's very few, if any beers that I actually care to hunt for these days. I buy 90% of my beer/alcohol from the same local store and my thoughts now are if it's not something he gets in I probably don't really need it.

I exaggerated slightly, but I was on my way to bed

I will say that using flat rate boxes you can squeeze in about 8 cans. Congress St. @ 17.20/4, = $34.40, plus $13 for shipping, you're at $47.40. 2 4 packs of the Other Half collab, you're at $48. If you start looking at Tree House, you can get a 4-pack of Haze for the same price as Congress St., and Haze is a DIPA. The numbers aren't THAT far off.

re: Parish now selling $24 4 packs
Ain't nobody trading Ghost Diamonds for Congress St or Haze, I promise... Juice Machine released recently and I could see people trading these 1 for 1. I wouldn't trade these for anything less than Heavy Mettle or a surprise drop of a Headroom or something like that from Trillium. They are not going to trade at their $6 cost.

I literally lol'ed at prime real estate costs. I went several times to the original Trillium Fort Point location, before Canton and when it was literally just a counter with no on site consumption, the entrance was a door in an alley and they were slinging the shite out of 750ml ipas at like $12/each. Since then, I've been to Canton several times. I can imagine the industrial warehouse real estate market isn't too far from Broussard. It has looked hardly in demand. Every day Trillium has lines for people to spend $22/4 pack on their regular dipas that I wouldn't trade regular ghost for.

First time I went to Tree House was before they had printed cans. Been back like six times since. I got married in Vermont and had a keg of Edward at the reception. Been to HF for Zwanze and for FoFA. I understand NEW ENGLAND beer, I promise. Hell, I traded a vanilla rye in like 2014 for bottles of the first release of ddh fort point and cans of one of the early Julius releases. I still judge the shite out of myself for that one... Lol.

So, anyway, value is all relative. I'm excited to spend $6/can on what will most likely be a killer beer collabed with a brewery I love to visit and never ever thought would come to Louisiana to brew a collab beer. I'm excited. I totally understand people that take the other side. The costs add up verrrrryyyy quickly. But, literally no one can hate on Parish for any reason other than spite. They sold 50% of the beer brewed in two min. With 5 minutes they could have sold 100%. I don't find the price disproportionate to what you're getting. It's dumb to compare it to just other local beers. All biases aside, it should be compared to a big release from a TH or Trill or Monkish, etc. I got one four pack because the stupid cart wouldn't update lol. Saturday will be fun, though. But, the points made comparing this to Boston were pretty off and just throwing shite at the wall hoping it would stick.

You just made his point by comparing 2 of their locations to Parish's 1 location...

And they're opening at Fenway soon too.

And the Fort Point location he mentioned is now strictly used for commercial use and they opened a 3 story building in the Seaport (the most expensive neighborhood in Boston).

And the Canton location he mentioned is going to be moved to a brand new building that they are in the early phases on right now, which will be very similar to their new Seaport location (outdoor space, restaurant, and bar).

And they'll be opening the Greenway space again in about a month.

And like you said, they're opening a location in Fenway.

But Parish does have that one location in Broussard, LA. So they've got that going for them.

Are their daily lines at the Seaport location? Will be visiting there in May. If I just want to have a beer, and then take a bunch of 4packs to go, will I have to wait in line?

Chances are, no. You'll likely be able to walk right in. Unless there happens to be a special release, or if you try and go on a Friday/Saturday night, you should be fine.

well worth the shipping costs but if you are both sending something then it evens itself out. I use FedEx and it just costs more but I am not sending alcohol through USPS.
