Updated: November 13, 2013

Beer and sports go hand in hand – they really always have.  Like anything in life, prices seem to always be going up, up, up.  Beer prices are certainly no exception.  We at LWOS have followed a site called for some time.  Periodically they put out some really great insight into beer industry as it relates directly to sports.

Today, we bring hockey fans an interesting look at beer prices from around the NHL.  There are certainly some surprises, particularly with the high and low.


All prices have been normalized to US Dollars and are at a BEFORE TAX amount.

Note:  All Prices are as Reported by phone calls to the stadium itself. 

Also note that not all arenas use the same size glass, so we have reported the size actually sold at the arena.

If the price you paid at a recent game does not correspond to the graphic, its likely due to the taxes, normalization to USD, and/or buying a different size than the one reported.

        Thanks for the reply. Save on Brew created the infographic based on reports from visitors to these arenas and adjusted prices based on tax, beverage size, etc. If there are discrepancies, we will pass them on on your behalf.

          They did it based on reports of actually phoning the arena and asking staff.

    Verizon Center in DC beer prices START at $8.50 for Bud Light and escalate quickly for “Premium” beers (read: not Bud, Miller, or Coors).
