“World's Most EXPENSIVE Beers w/Stephen Beaumont”, ugh!

This is a Philly Beer Week event. The full title of the event is: ""Monk’s Café presents... The World's Most Expensive Beers Dinner! (Well, Not Really, But Highlighting Some of the Most Expensive and Controversial Beers in the World) Featuring Your Host, Stephen Beaumont"". http://www.ripsneakers.com/monks/even...

I find the emphasis on price however to be vulgar and an unnecessary basis for any event. And one thing that has been true of beer is that even the very best beer has been accessible to the average person. I don’t desire to have beer go the way of wine in this regard. I mean we have our snobs in the beer community too, but it is based on connoisseurship mostly and not based on price. The event further emphasizes that the event will be "hedonistic" and feature “rare” beers. Now that would have been a cool basis by itself. And if as a function of that things get pricey, so be it. But again price alone is a vulgar basis.

Thoughts?
