Congratulations to all of you who buy beer at "The Rock" you pay the 6th highest per ounce rate in the NHL!

Puck Daddy NHL Beer Index

I can't believe the Rags pay the 3rd lowest in the NHL :noclue:

I mean they could literally connect a tap from the vats at the Bud factory to the Pru Center so why do we pay so much?

Yea, I cried inside when I bought three beers for what would have been a months supply of beer at home.

But you're totally paying for the experience of having a beer at the rock. Totally worth the insane markup

The insane price is only worth it if you drank 8+ beers prior to going in. Actually, scratch that. That was the scale for PREVIOUS seasons. This year it isn't worth the price of a beer inside The Rock unless you've had 12 MINIMUM prior to going in.... :cheers:

Yeah it looks like they are using old numbers from last season. Didn't even the domestics go up to like $8 or $8.75 or something? I was not able to find any beer at the Rock for under $8. Therefore, we are even higher on the list. Ouch.

Last Saturday was my first game of the new season. I was walking around the upper concourse looking for all the premium beers but all I could find was Heineken and Molson. What happened to all the other good beers they used to sell? Are they gone?

I just don't understand it. I would much rather pay half price to enjoy an actual good beer at a bar before and after the game, or pay like a third the price for a really good beer from a liquor store and enjoy it at home.

two-fold.

1) it's probably one of the more profitable things in the building... other than soda, so why not.

2) if beer was at market price, the place would be a drunken hellhole. it's bad enough as is.

of course, 1) is far more important than 2), but I don't mind it.

and if you really, really want to be floored, go to the new Giants/Jets stadium, and go to the Captain Morgan bar. check the prices for the hard stuff, and watch the pour. :lol: they about a bottle's worth out of one shot.

at least at the Rock, if you know someone, for $10 you get a good pour.

I have no pity for any of you. The cheapest 24 in Nova Scotia is roughly 41 dollars. A pint of hard liquor usually goes for 14 or 15 dollars.

Most of the beer is crap at games anyway. Would it kill them to add nice micro brews on tap. Allagash, Magic Hat, Pelican. Now I would drop $10 fro one of those. I am thirsty already.

I think they would only charge $5 for a 16oz draft of cat urine.

I couldn't believe when I was at the store in Ontario and they wanted 36 C$ for a 24 pack of Bud Light lime. :lol: That isn't what we were getting, but it jumped out at me.

Your unconditional rejection of violence makes you smugly think of yourselves as noble, as enlightened, but in reality it is nothing less than abject moral capitulation to evil. Unconditional rejection of self-defense, because you think its a supposed surrender to violence, leaves you no resort but begging for mercy or offering appeasement.
