Did you have it from a bottle or from a tap?

I believe that the bottle version is not as strong as it is from a tap...

I'm a big fan of not your fathers, had it on tap as well in Wrigleyville and was even better than the bottle. I thought I read somewhere that it's coming out in a can version very soon.

Bottle for bottle -
Similar price, similar alcohol strength. One was 5.8% the other was 5.9%, I forget which was which.

Coney Island > Not your Father's

I bought two six's side by side at Binny's and blind tested them with my family.
4 - 0 in favor of the Coney Island

Coney is 5.8
Not your fathers is 5.9

I personally prefer Not your fathers but they are both good.

Cans?!?! Whoa! Not sure I'd enjoy it from a can tho, and I love this stuff. The real treat is finding the ~20% ABV on tap. I really need to find a place that will sell me a growler of it. A vast majority of the places that have NYFRB on tab have the ~10%. The place around the corner from my house (American Tap) has the 20% and that stuff is dangerously good. Doesn't really taste much different than the bottles either.

Cans actually aren't bad. I find them to go down smoother than the bottles. Picked up another 6 pack the other day (of cans) and enjoyed two last night.

What do you guys pay for it? I forked over $12.99 for the six pack of cans.

Didn't realize you were in Alaska. I would guess that would change things.

A 6er of bottles is usually 9.50-11.xx. 9.50 is on the "dirt cheap" side that I've seen it. Scored it at that price at WalMart a few weeks ago. Glad to see this stuff gaining popularity outside of the Chicago area tho. Seems to have suddenly spread quickly. A few months ago, you could pretty much only get it here.
