Cubs Beer Prices Some Of The Highest In MLB

By Jim Bochnowski in Food on Apr 13, 2015 5:30PM

It's already been a trying season at Wrigley Field so far this year and to make matters worse, the North Side features one of the worst bang for your buck costs on beer in the MLB.

According to a study from Business Insider, the cost of a small draft beer at Wrigley Field (16 ounces) stands at $7.75, tied for the most expensive price for beer at a Major League Baseball stadium in the country with Fenway Park in Boston and Citizen Bank Park in Philadelphia. If there's a slight silver lining, however, the price per ounce of beer at Wrigley is $.48 per ounce, which is at least only the 7th worst deal in the country.

Across town, things are slightly better at U.S. Cellular Field. The cost of a small beer of the same size on the South Side is $6.50, the 11th highest in the country with their price per ounce of beer the 13th best deal at $.41 per ounce, just behind the Milwaukee Brewers at $.38 per ounce.

So, while looking for something to do this summer, you can go to the stadium without bleachers, non-functional toilets and expensive beer...or the one with (relatively) cheap beer and and some fancy new food options. If you're a neutral fan, we think this summer the South Side might be your better option until the construction is finished at the Friendly Confines.
