$9.15 for Sam Light?

I was doing some Easter shopping yesterday afternoon at my neighborhood liquor store, and I was dismayed to see how expensive beer prices have become. I spent $19.75 for 12 beers -- a sixer of Sam Light (based in Boston, but bottled all the way in Cincinnati) and a sixer of Long Trail (brewed in Vermont).

Apparently it has to do with a worldwide shortage of hops, and increased transportation costs.

Whatever the reason, I'm afraid to even ask -- Is a $10 six pack around the corner? What is this, New York?

That's a steal compared to Norway. When I was there this summer, it was $20 for a six pack! And that's not even the fancy stuff.
