Wanna Brew? Go To A Pirates Game

Friday, 3 Apr 2009 | 7:56 AM ET

Last year, I wrote about how the Philadelphia Phillies, disturbingly, had the cheapest beer prices in Major League Baseball.

For $5, fans could get a 21-ounce beer. That works out to 24 cents an ounce.

But this year, that great honor goes to the Pittsburgh Pirates, who not only have the second-lowest average ticket price in the league ($15.39), but also have the lowest beer price.

This season, the Pirates will be charging $4.75 for a 21-ounce beer, according to Team Marketing Report. That means they are doing it for a cent per ounce cheaper than the Phillies did it last year.

The most expensive brew goes to the Boston Red Sox, who are charging $7.25 for a 12-ounce cold one. That's 60 cents an ounce. I don't think that's Sam Adams either.
