I hope not. I don't like the fact that everythign seems to be moving to bombers.
Do the breweries make more selling bombers? I wanted to get a bottle of Amsterdam Framboise, $11.95 for a bomber is too much for me.
Packaging is one issue, but brewers also have the option of charging more per ounce in the bombers. You, as a consumer, are far more likely to buy an $8 bomber, which works out to about .36/oz, rather then spend the same on 12oz bottles where, if the price point were the same per oz as a bomber, a six pack would cost $26.18.
Very few people would pick up a $26 six-pack. So in terms of being able to command more for your beer per ounce, the bomber also offers a higher price point for brewers, though less value for consumers.
When I did the math, I got 22.72 for a 6 pack. Which changes nothing at all about your point.
8$ divided by 22oz is .3636repeating, which is the per ounce price.
.3636repeating times 12 is $4.3636repeating, which is the per 12oz bottle price.
4.3636repeating time 6 bottles is $26.18, more or less.
But you're right, $23 or $26 a six-pack is not really the issue - most of us would be pretty hesitant to make that a regular purchase, or even a purchase at all, while many of us would happily pick up at least one bomber.
