Sierra Nevada to shrink Bigfoot barleywine to four-packs from six-packs

/

In a Beerpulse.com report on Sierra Nevada's plans for the rest of the year, the brewery reveals that it will be downgrading its awesome Bigfoot barleywine from six-packs to four-packs starting in 2013.

This move makes me sad. Bigfoot is one of my all-time favorites and is very affordable at about $10 for six.

I'm currently drinking through a case right now.

Will the four-packs will be priced about the same as six-packs? If so, that means we'll get 33 percent less beer for about the same price.

To play devil's advocate I guess Sierra Nevada was looking at a big price increase and decided a $10 four-pack was more palatable than a $16 six-pack.

What do you think of this change? Use the comment field below to sound off.
