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.
