Sixty Bucks of Beer

You may have noticed that the price of a bottle of Trillium Absinthe, mentioned yesterday, was sixty bucks. It so happens that a couple three days ago I spent the same sum on beer--during the spree that brought me the Dogfish Head IPA. You've seen the picture of the Trillium, now have a look at the beer.

As I mentioned, I'm not a spirits guy, but come on, isn't it clear which was the better deal (no offense to the good folks at Integrity). I had the Schwelmer last night ... thoughts to come.
