$6 Yuengling?
« on: September 29, 2005, 10:53:00 am »
I don't know if this has been covered before, but I hadn't been to the 930 club in a few months - $6 for a smallish cup of Yuengling is ridiculous.  I can understand it for Old Rasputin or Raison D'Etre (or maybe they're more, still understand that), and even for Wolavers, but not Yuengling, and especially not in the small cup. Even $6 fot a bottle of Y is crazy. Is the club losing money or something? I can think of no other reason for it.

Ah yes....good old Yuengling. The beer that claims to be DC's only local beer, yet brewed in PA and has a name like it should only be available in a chinese restaurant.
 
 Not a bad beer, but does make one's rudies rather smelly....not unlike good old smelly bottom, aka foggy bottom, or is it the same stuff branded differently?
 
 ...and don't even get me started on the price of beer in the club! Try a can of Boddies!

I hear ya.  I think prices just went up recently -- a bottle of Heineken is $6, and that is too much (don't ask me why, I can live with $5, which is still $6 after all....)

Energy crisis?
 
 Inflation?
 
 
 Kinda makes one nostalgic...for Nixon.

I'm saving for one. Perhaps in 2007...
 
 Funny sight is Celeste and I drinking a four pack of Boddington's at a NASCAR race each year....one time C was eating a sandwich with avocado is it at a NASCAR race, and this redneck leans back and asks, "What's that green stuff in your sandwich?" When C tells him, he says to his friend, "See, I told you so."
 
 Sorry, I digress.

The thought of Celeste and yourself at a NASCAR event drinking Boddies almost brought a tear to my eye.....but not in a weird way.

I was thinking about this at the White Stripes show at Merriweather...since i had been to Oriole Park, 930 and Merriweather all this past week, i thought i would compare
 
   930: $6 for a 12oz beer
 
   Oriole Park: $5 for a 16oz cup, $6 for a 24oz cup of beer
 
   Merriweather: $7 for a 24oz beer
 
  930 is more expensive than the baseball game???
 
    now, i see that prices are different depending on which KIND of beer you choose, for instance, at 24oz Corona at MPP is $10, but some of us dont always care what kind of beer they drink all the time.
 
   is there a beer that is like $4 at the club? or is everything just $6 across the board?
   its really one of the reasons i dont go very much, perhaps I am just not ordering the right drink  :)

I asked what was cheaper, and it was only Bud, Bud Light, and Miller, or one of those other big breweries.

Yeah, I noticed the price increase at the Sufjan show. Not a big fan...
 
 Stellas are now $6. I think domestics like Miller and Bud used to be $4. Not sure how much they are now.
 
 Merriweather's got a good deal - 24oz Stella for $8   :D

How much?
 
 It's interesting -- that price jump has actually caused a demand response on my end.  I'll drink less at the club.  During the week I usually have a couple beers just because I'm there and it's a club, now I'll have one or zero.  And weekends -- more drinking at DC9!
