We've all paid too much for beer.

You may have been cheering on the O's or Ravens. Or attempting to drown out a baby's constant screams on a packed flight. Or perhaps you've ventured into a bar with a verb for its name. Beer is everywhere. You want it. You just don't want to pay a lot for it.

Us too. Which is why we're back with our second roundup of Baltimore's cheapest bottles, cans, drafts, microbrews and happy hours. Because we firmly believe that the only thing better than a cold beer on a warm summer day is a cheap cold beer on a warm summer day.

We did all the work for you, scouring the hundreds of bars in the city, which we've divided into four quadrants, to find the lowest prices. Though our research was very thorough, we may have missed a few great deals. Let us know — or suggest other great bargains — via email at beer@bthesite.com.

We've also created a handy interactive map, which can be found at baltimoresun.com/cheapestbeers.

Happy frugal drinking!
