Liquor is disgustingly expensive in Canada, I pay just over $10 for a 4pk of Boddingtons 473mL. That's including the discount I get for working at the bar.
Even though Boddingtons is good, that is really expensive. I pay under 10 for a 6 pack of Guiness.
You get about 1700 millileter for what I get 2100 millileterers. Around the same price. Damn, discounts aren't so great these days after all.
However, in central Massachusetts, if you brew a 5 gallon batch, I costs 50 dollars for ingredients such as grain, hops, yeast (not including pots, carboys, energy, utensils etc.). With that initial investment out of the way and the fun time you have brewing, you get about 3500 millileters per $10. That is over twice what you pay for Boddingtons, and you can choose, alter, or design your own brew.
