I've found this thread interesting because I've always been interesting in looking into home brewing; but I just wanted to interject that as an American living in Australia the prices for buying beer from a store here are drastically different (as in more expensive).

A slab -- or a case, or 24-pack -- of mainstream American beer (Budweiser, Coors, etc) can be bought for US$15, and even a microbrew might still only be $25 at somewhere like Costco. So 2 slabs would only be in the $30-50 range (rough estimate, it's been a while). And my German friends here, among others, have had the same reaction to the beer prices as they're used to having it be much cheaper as well.

So, I guess what I'm saying is that I agree with your math but that it would have to be a different calculation if you were using beer prices from somewhere else.
