SaveOnBrew 2011 NFL Stadium Beer Price Review

NFL BEER PRICES EDGE UP FOR 2011
Not surprisingly, prices edged up, but not as much as you might think. The average increase across all teams was just four percent. Of course, when prices start at five dollars for a sixteen ounce serving, every little penny tacked on hurts.
The lowest price to grab a cup of suds was at a Cleveland Browns home game ($5.00) while the stadium that commands the most expensive brew was Edward Jones Dome, home of the St. Louis Rams, at $9.00 per twenty ounce serving.
It's not all bad news, though. Three stadiums actually serve beer for less this year than last. You'll save a few pennies while watching an Atlanta, Kansas City, and Oakland home game.
While nine bucks per twenty ounce serving in St. Louis is pretty shocking (that works out to 45 cents per ounce), it's not the worst deal in the league. That badge falls squarely on the wide shoulders of FedEx Field, home of the the Washington Redskins, who serve twelve ounces for seven dollars -- that's 58 cents per ounce.
To put that in perspective, at 58 cents per ounce, a six pack would set you back forty-two dollars.
