This study and handy little pastel-colored infographic from Team Marketing Report ranked the average per-ounce beer price around all of Major League Baseball, and the Phillies finished at 37 cents– expensive by any human standards, but cheap by ballpark standards. That’s good for 22nd in baseball (around where their record stands!).
But average is sort of a misnomer here. That would indicate that all beer prices were taken into account. Which they were not. It’s $7.75 for a 21 oz. domestic* at CBP– roughly 37 cents per ounce. But that seemingly doesn’t take into account the many craft beers that are significantly more expensive (and I can assure you that Lee Porter has never paid the minimum $7.75 for a beer). It also doesn’t take into account the fact that the $7.75 cheapest beer is among the priciest in the league. So, while the per ounce price at CBP, at least for domestics, is relatively cheap, the barrier to get in my bell you cold delicious beverage entry is on the high side.
Anyway, at least we have another reason to not be a Red Sox fan– 60 cents per ounce. Ouch.
*I can’t find actual documentation on this, but from other articles and those of you on Twitter, I believe that is the going rate. If anyone can dispute this, please do so in the comments.
