Black Market In Craft Beer

As craft beers gain an intense following, a black market is booming where opportunists sell for hundreds of dollars top-rated beers that are hard to find, in short supply, expensive or illegal to ship.

In Vermont, a Burlington woman was charged recently with selling five cases of the popular Heady Topper beer for $825 on Craigslist.

Heady Topper retails for $3 a can and $72 a case and was recently ranked No. 1 by Beer Advocate magazine out of the top 250 beers in the world.

If you think that’s bad, many beers have been sold on eBay.

The auction site is stepping in to try and stop the practice.
