Nationals

Grabbing a cold one during a sporting event has never been a cheap endeavor.

Everyone involved knows its overpriced, but often times it is the cheapest alcoholic beverage at a stadium or an arena.

And you cannot properly enjoy a baseball game without grabbing your favorite beer.  It is all a part of the baseball experience.

That is until it costs $16.

Yep, when the Nationals take the field for the first time at Nationals Park on Thursday, April 5 against the Met, it will cost you that much to enjoy a 25 oz. craft beer while Max Scherzer is pitching a gem.

The Nationals still sell tickets that are cheaper.

Now to put it into perspective, a six-pack of Bud-Light (48 oz.) costs $5.79, a 12-pack (96 oz.) for $10.49.

You can even get a 30-pack of Natural Light (360- oz.) for cheaper ($14.99) than a craft beer at Nationals Park.

Not to fully compare craft beer to regular beer, because craft beer is typically a few dollars more, but $16 seems a little… ahem… a lot excessive.

Might have to try that Spike Seltzer Grapefruit thingy next time.
