James Boag's Premium Lager Pricing

Why has James Boag's Premium Lager price increased?

It was $59.99 on Dan Murphy's last week for a carton. It is now $57.95.

I remember buying them for around $45? Don't get me wrong these are great lagers at $45 but close to $60 is just close to buying craft beers at $70 a case.

    Ever tried Fraser Briggs?

    Wouldn't be paying $60 for a carton. I've just had Dan Murphy come up at $54 for me (which is still a bit pricey). Beers just seem to go through cycles of which ones are on discount. Personally I've found I can always get something I want for around the $45 - $48 mark.

    Mind you, this is still a far cry from when I used to be able to get a carton of New for $20 on special. Good times!

    Boag's is my go to… Normal price at Thirsty Camel is $54.98, but they'll drop down to $50ish on special, sometimes $45.
    The home-brew equivalent from Brewcraft is not a bad approximation if you have the time and inclination (also their Southwark Premium approximation is pretty good too).

    All of that beer has gone up - Becks used to be 36 a carton for the fully imported, now its 50-60. It's not even worth buying that stuff anymore, might as well spend an extra 5-10 bucks and get some decent craft beer.

    Of course the problem is the ever increasing tax applied. A carton of full strength beer (24 x 375mL @ 5%) has $16.83 worth of tax in the price from what I can make out.

    You pay 18c more per bottle since December 1 =$4.32 extra per carton, for the recycling scheme.

    I like Amatos in Leichhardt or Mr Liquor outlets as they sell parallel import beers.
    Boags is a lion nathan/tooheys product which are often expensive for what they are, because of marketing and local production costs.
