Wild has NHL's highest beer prices


Bring your biggest purse or wallet to the next Wild game you attend if you plan on tipping back a beer or two.

According to the Minneapolis/St. Paul Business Journal, the Wild has the most expensive beer in the NHL. The average cost of a 20-ounce plastic cup of beer is $9.50 -- tied with the New York Islanders and Anaheim Ducks for the highest beer prices in the league.

When it comes to value, the Wild isn't the worst offender. The New York Rangers charge $8.75 for a 12-ounce cup. Fans that really want to get their money's worth should head to the Nation's capital, where the Washington Capitals pour 24-ounces of beer for just $8.

SaveOnBrew.com notes that the average beer sold at an NHL arena costs 48 cents per ounce. That's the equivalent of a regular six-pack costing a mind-boggling $34.56.
