Wine Vs. Beer Pricing

Just a quick question that’s been bugging me for a while now and suddenly reared its ugly head again this weekend.

Why is it perfectly acceptable to spend $30 on a fine bottle of wine, but completely preposterous and absurd to even think of spending half that on a large bottle of craft brewed beer? Is beer so much more inferior to wine that most folks think it unconscionable to spend “so much money” on a 750 ml bottle of beer? Or am I the one insane for doing so?
