Miami Among Cheapest Cities to Buy Beer, Study Says
When you've evolved past the days of Natty Light and Bud Select, beer drinking can become an expensive habit. Lucky for brew hounds in the 305, a new study says Miami actually ranks among the cheapest cities to buy beer.
According to Nerd Wallet's calculations, MIA comes in at #9 behind cities like Carlsbad, New Mexico; Galesburg, Illinois; Phoenix, Arizona and Rockford, Illinois.
The data is based on the cost of a six-pack of Heineken. In Miami, it runs $7.56, in Carlsbad, $7.25 and in New York City (Manhattan to be exact), a whopping $12.63.
(The question remains as to who the hell would pay $12.63 for a six-pack of Heineken, but after enduring freezing temps, a 45-minute Subway ride and a five-story walk-up - there's probably a lot of desperation involved.)
Some of the other pricey cities include Richmond, Indiana; Moses Lake, Washington and Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. Random, we know.
Why Heineken? No idea, but at least it's not Bud Light.
The overall numbers are based on the ACCRA Cost of Living Index.
