Drinking at Baltimore area concert venues

April 01, 2010|By Sam Sessa | sam.sessa@baltsun.com | Baltimore Sun reporter

Beers at large-scale concert venues aren't cheap. Depending on the place, a cold one can run you close to $10. We compared the cost and size of a Budweiser draft at three local music spots. Here is what we found:

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.
