Just got back from Bottle King. My beloved Rolling Rock has gone up from $15.99/case to $17.99/case. DH's disgusting Genny has gone up from $12.99/30 pack to $14.99/30 pack.

What gives? Was there a tax increase or are the beer companies raising the general prices?

Due to the extra $4 I had to spend on beer, I bought a bottle of Stoli for $21.99 instead of Kettle One for $28.99. If you remember, I had to downgrade to Kettle from Grey Goose last year as a way to offset the prices I was paying for gas and heating oil.

If it continues at this rate, we will be drinking Keystone and Banks before the end of the year!

Moving to KY and making our own moonshine is sounding better and better.

When I read these price increases from you, the first thing I thought of was KY. But not the state.

If alcohol prices increase at this rate, by next year, Calico696 will be drinking a Prestone/vanilla extract cocktail.

You'd probably get life imprisonment for cheating NJ out of a few dollars of their tax money!
