Which Baseball Stadium Has the Cheapest Beer?
The song might go "buy me some peanuts and Cracker Jacks," but nothing makes a baseball game interesting faster than an ice cold cup of whatever the hell they have on tap at the stadium. But, while this time-honored tradition of ballpark booziness is ubiquitous, prices can vary quite a lot depending on which stadium you're in. So which home team's arena offers the most beer for your buck?
Using data collected by The Marketing Report, Vinepair put together a handy infographic detailing the price of a beer at every MLB stadium, focusing on which stadiums have the cheapest small beer available, and which offer the cheapest beer by the ounce. Here's how it all shook out:
The Arizona Diamondbacks take home the trophy for cheapest small beer, with a 14oz cup of suds costing only $4 at Chase Field. Second place goes to the Cleveland Indians at Progressive Field, where you'll pay the same $4 for only 12oz, and the Los Angeles Angels round out third place at Angel Stadium of Anaheim (16oz beer for $4.50). Boston Red Sox fans actually get the worst deal in the country -- a 12oz beer costs a whopping $7.75 at Fenway.
As for cheapest beer by the ounce, the Angels jumped up to first this time with $0.28/oz, pushing the Diamondbacks into second ($0.29/oz), while the Texas Rangers wound up in third with $0.31/oz at Rangers Ballpark in Arlington. Last place was clinched by the Sox with $0.65/oz, although it's worth noting that the New York Yankees only scored marginally better at $0.50/oz. Guess those two teams have more in common than they'd like to admit...
