 Well I think so. It gave me the opportunity to try 24 beer that aren't locally available that I've never had before or even heard of. Some were better than others some were amazing only one wasn't to my liking but to be honest it could have been one of the best examples of a smoked wheat ale the is...
I received it as a gift so I didn't actually buy it but I enjoyed quite a bit. It gave me the opportunity to sit down and relax with a craft beer every evening for one of the busiest and crazy months of the year. For that reason alone it's worth it to me.  ;)
