Baseball is America’s favorite pastime, as the old adage goes, and there’s no denying the simple pleasure of sitting in the stands enjoying a hot dog and an ice-cold beer. But with the All-Star break now at a close, fans of the Boston Red Sox and the New York Mets may think twice about heading to the stadium for their teams’ next ball game.
According to new data from Team Marketing Report, the cheapest beer available at Chase Stadium, where the Mets play, is $12 — four times more expensive than the cheapest beer available at Coors Field, home to the Colorado Rockies, and the cheapest beer in baseball. The situation isn’t much better for fans of the Red Sox, who are lucky enough to enjoy the most expensive beer in baseball by the ounce. The cost of beer per ounce at Fenway Park is $0.79, almost three times higher than the $0.25 per ounce cost at Coors Field.
