The strangest thing happens to folk when confronted with groundless claims to value. Sometimes they make up grounds:
"Worth it? I have no clue. Regrettably I have not sampled Don Q, as it’s known to wild beerstalkers, and am unlikely to get the chance. A mere 300 bottles were made. Nor has Moser. “That one has eluded me,” he said. “A lot of these have eluded me, I’ll be honest. When there’s only 300 bottles of something, it’s kind of hard to elbow your way in.” “We’re talking about the very tippy-top, 1 per cent of beers,” he said. “The vast majority of beer, as is the case with wine, too, are meant to be drunk as soon as possible.
There are a few interesting things to notice. Beer requires an extremely limited quantity for the effect of manufactured demand to pump up the price. 30,000 bottles of the actually rare Bordeaux, Petrus, come out on average every year. It's rare because the wine only comes from 28 acres of land. Each bottle sells for a few thousand bucks when new. More later. Unlike good beer, it cannot scale. So saying "when a mere 300 bottles are made" what it means is 99,700 bottles were not made. Or more. Except they weren't because they wouldn't be rare then. And they would go for $8.99.
Another thing. Calling something the tippy-top when you haven't experienced it makes no sense. Great wines are made available to top wine thinkers all the time. Great wines are created and sampled as part of the process. Asimov isn't buying these wines. He's tried them and explains how... and why they are worth it. With beer? No such luck. Value is ascribed at the highest level when the beer cannot be experienced.
Which is literally nonsense. You cannot sense it. No one can. For all practical purposes, it is non-existent. Excellent.
