DISCLAIMER: this is not an offer to buy or sell any beer. I do not have a Crianza Helena, nor am I looking to get one. I do not advocate any cash transactions on ratebeer.

Now that thatís out of the way, what would you value a 75cl bottle of Cantillon Crianza Helena at? I havenít seen any recently on eBay...
If you had the opportunity to get one for $200, would you do it?

Iíd rather have a case of Belgian Red or several of Expedition Stout. $200 for a single beer is a bit like dropping $700+ for a scotch or wine. It might be good but it isnít going to be 10x better than anything else.

No. There are still plenty of bottles of it at DHVL.

Save the $200, add to it, and fly to Belgium and drink 8 of them while eating an awesome dinner.

If two hundred bucks is like pocket change to you, then go for it. If not, drink off the shelf lambic and have a great time.

I could spend that $200 on a hooker and probably have a better time than drinking that 1 beer.

Itís not 10x better than a $20 bottle of gueuze. Iíd probably pay up to about 50 for one so I could have it again, but definitely not 200.

Is ANY beer worth $200? You can travel to Prague and drink pint after pint of fresh, amazing pils for 1,90Ä.

I saw the thread earlier that mentioned a single bottle of Don Quixote going for $1,200. As an owner of 2 bottles, Iím very tempted to sell them and go on a nice vacation to Bamburg, or Montreal, or California, or any one of the hundreds of other amazing beer destinations out there.

You probably wonít get the clap from the Crianza, though.
