For today’s post ‘Good’ = high quality, solid profile, well made and cared for from tank to table.
How much does a ‘good’ bottle of wine cost?
How about a ‘good’ bottle of liquor?
How much does a ‘good’ 6 pack of beer cost?
From an economic stand point, beer is one of the best values for your dollar. Let’s do some math.
- When you look for a reasonable bottle of wine, you can plan to spend anywhere from 10, 12, 20 dollars or more.
- When you buy a reasonable bottle of liquor, you start anywhere from the mid teens up into easily 30 or 40 dollars.
- When you want to buy some good beer, you can start at 8 or 9 dollars for a six pack.
Seriously. You get 6 – 12 ounce bottles effectively exceeding any regular wine or liquor bottle quantity with that 8 – 10 bucks.
I’m not pitting one kind of beverage against another – I’m simply pointing out that beer is and will continue to be a great value. Women tell me over and over that value is really important. (And value goes beyond just the $$ factor.)
Value is always important. Now more than ever with people more aware of exactly where their dollars are headed and to what end, money is even more strictly watched.
So not only is a good beer good, it’s a great value. And the kicker? It’s always a great value. Regardless of economic environment. It’s why we call it an affordable luxury. Because it is.
