My father is a retiree from a brewery here in Canada (he was one of the plumbers/pipefitters there) so we got free beer the entire time he worked there and, since he retired, he gets coupons for free cases delivered to the house in January of each year. Because of that, I haven't paid for beer at the store in decades so no, I wouldn't pay that $1000 as I don't need to, especially as I prefer rye to beer.

Depends on the beer...if it's Chimay Blue then I'd pay a lot more than $1000!

I would do it to support a friend or family members business, but hardly drink enough to justify the expense. I think it is a cool idea though.

I wouldn't but I think that for whose drink a lot it may be a good deal.

:cheers:

The problem is if the brewpub closes before your life expires so you will be without the beer and without the money. Is a risky bet.

Where is the guarantee that they are going to be around for the rest of my life?

There used to be a place in my home town where you could buy a mug (hanging on the ceiling with your number on it) for a fixed price for the year.

What kind of beer? Budweiser? I wouldn't give $5 for a lifetime supply of that swill. Seriously.

I spent maybe $20.00 on beer over the last 25 years. I'd take a pass.

I would re-coup that cost in a year or two. I rarely drink liquor anymore, as craft beer is my drink of choice. If it were a few years ago, I would spend that on beer in a matter of months. Good thing that is curbed, cause my body couldn't take that any more. But I probably have $100 worth of beer in my fridge right now.

It can't be a 'good' beer if the brewery offers something like this.....

well brewed beer sells without this

You'd be in the positive at pint 251... usually 4 bucks a pint, so, yes I'd do definitely. Plus I'll always support craft brewers in spite of my homebrew, because we share a passion :)

No, but just because I don't like beer enough to drink more than a pint once every couple of months.

Scotch, on the other hand...

Up until about 2 years ago, I drank a handle a week of some kind of hard liquor (usually bourbon).. but then I dropped that amount to a 1/5 a week... now the past 4 months I've only had a few beers here and there, but I'm about 60lbs lighter than I was 2 years ago (lost about 40lbs the last 9 months). :laugh2: :shock:

At one point in my life this would have been a steal. Now, I barely have a beer at a bar. When I do it's usually geared around a concert or vacation. Which are never local.

I'd take it if it were my local beer distributor giving me one case a month. I'd be in the clear I'm less than 3 years if that were the case.

Lets see..:hmm:... I average 2 Buds a day...I buy 30 packs on sale....average cost per can is about $.68...so let's round it off to $1.50/day or $547.50/year.....yeah, I'd do it. :thumb:


Budweiser...crisp, clean, refreshing. :thumb::beer:
