How much does a beer cost at your local bar?

A lot sure has changed in the past 10 years. A few days ago went to the bar and a Corona costs $6.50. I was staggered. My friend actually said that that's considered average and some places charge even more.

How is it where you're at?

It really depends on what type of bar you go to. I went to a local bar and a a Corona was $4. Go downtown and its $4-6. But I prefer something on tap.. something off the IPA list. Easily spend $4 and up.

Nothing really has changed. Its just more is available. Location dictates pricing. I know here in VA, if you sell alcohol at a restaurant/bar ... your total Food sells have to be $2k per month. Most people don't eat food at a bar. So this is why some bars will charge more for beer.

Depends what beer, and who drinks Corona... especially at a bar

bars advertise $2 PBR... but PBR is Past Blue Ribbon, so I'll pass

I would say about $5~ a beer, give or take $1.50 depending on what it is and if it's a glass, bottle, or can



now, this sounds douchy, but I try not to drink at bars where I don't know the bartenders / manager personally - because I like to drink for free. I'm sure some bartenders will look at this and get mad and think it's not possible.

TN here and the bar I like to frequent for sports and bar food does $3.75 34oz. Yuengling that I get. However, the nicer bar where I go grab a drink drink, take casual dates, buffalo calamari *drool* is about $4-5 for a 16 oz. I stay with gin and tonics there though.

On average, $3-$6 for a pint.

When I was in Blacksburg, it was much cheaper than that. Same with Knoxville, TN.

3-6 for domestic regular prices(happy hour 1-3)

4-8 for imports and fancy microbrew's

The golf course I live on has $1 yuengling,amberbock,miller light pints all day. I like to get a bunch of people together and take that place over a weekend night.

I tend to go where its cheaper or hit up a place with a happy hour till 9

$4 - $7 for a decent draw - Sam Adams up to Guiness, including "imports and microbrews".

On the cheap side, I have status at a local brew pub for $2 20oz of their beer Sun - Thurs. I spend a lot of time and money there - my meal may be $25, but the three beers for $6 still make it a cheap night.

Edit; anyone seen the Bell's Java Stout back on tap yet? I haven't had any yet this year...
