"The Squeaky Wheel Gets The Grease"

A bit of a confession to make this week - we'd previously made a total pig's ear of pricing the whole range of Dogfish Head beers held at our Leeds store. While he may be a dab hand at talking about beer, Zak certainly took his eye off the ball for a moment there, pricing them according to a previous import list, when they were much more expensive. After being flogged with a cat o' nine tails improvised from an inflatable vinyl Desperados bottle, Zak admitted his mistake and repriced the whole range.

Actually, we're being kind. It wasn't until a regular customer pointed out that the whole Dogfish Head range was priced differently on the website that Zak took a look, despite being told about it by staff at the shop. Anyway, the beers are now all repriced, and might even be termed affordable. Certainly for great beers from one of the pioneers at the 'extreme' end of the American craft beer movement, they seem well priced to us. Have a look at the Ratebeer.com reviews for the 60 Minute IPA and 90 Minute IPA, and you'll see that these are very well-regarded beers - classics, even.

Yes, we know they're priced differently on the website compared to the shop. The overheads are different - let's just leave it at that.
