Comparing draft Budweisers at large, local live music venues
When you're seeing a show at a big music venue like, say, the 1st Mariner Arena, a draft Budweiser is going to cost you a chunk of change.
But what's the difference in price and size between 1st Mariner Arena, Merriweather Post Pavilion and the Verizon Center?
Funny you should ask, because I found out ...
Merriweather Post Pavilion: A 24-ounce draft Bud will run you $8 at the wooded amphitheater. It's a quarter more than 1st Mariner Arena, but it's also the only even price on our list. The other concession stands will give you back a quarter or two.
1st Mariner Arena: Old arena, contemporary prices: Here, a 24-ounce draft Budweiser costs $7.75, which is about the same as Merriweather.
Verizon Center: A 16-ounce bottle or draft Budweiser costs the same, $7.50, making it the most expensive by far (for the amount of beer you get). That's Washington for you.
