The rates range from just $.02 in Wyoming to a gulp-inducing $1.29 in Tennessee.
The data is especially interesting when compared to a June report comparing the average cost of a case of beer in every state. There isn't as much correlation as you might anticipate. The states with the cheapest cases of beer were Michigan (28th highest tax rate), California (28th), Illinois (26th), North Carolina (8th), Connecticut (26th), South Carolina (7th), Indiana (41st), Virginia (24th), Arizona (35th), and Nebraska (20th).
The states with the most expensive cases of beer were Pennsylvania (45th highest tax rate), Tennessee (1st), Texas (28th), North Dakota (17th), Rhode Island (41st), Nevada (35th), Oklahoma (15th), Alaska (2nd), and Wyoming (50th).
Knowing this probably won't stop you from grabbing a sixer of Two Hearted tonight, but at least you can pat yourself on the back a little, knowing you aren't paying as much as the suckers in those other states.
