Philadelphia may bill itself as the “city of brotherly love,” but that love doesn’t stretch far enough to get you cheap beer — at least, not if you’re dealing with the Philadelphia Eagles. According Food & Wine, the Eagles sell their beer for an incredible price of $14.67, just under $15. The second most expensive beer on the list was the Rams and Chargers, which sell their beer for $13.75.
How much will a $14 beer cost you in the long run? According Bookmakers, the cheapest price for four Eagles tickets is around $620, with a parking fee of $40. Two 16-ounce beers are $29.33 while two 20-ounce sodas are $11. Four hot dogs will set you back $24, not including pretzels, popcorn, ice cream, or other refreshments. This means that, for four people, attending a Philadelphia Eagles game could cost upwards of $724.33, plus or minus other purchases made. Such a high price, however, doesn’t compare to the San Francisco 49ers, who charge $1,028.34 for a family of four to enjoy the same hot dogs, sodas and beers at their game.
Some might argue that paying such a price is the cost of seeing the game in real time, rather than sitting at home in front of your TV. While that’s a fair argument, perhaps even the most die-hard Eagles fan will cheer them to victory with cheaper beer and snacks in their own home.
