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.

A craft Beer @Nationals park in 2018 costs more than a field box seat to the 1963 WORLD SERIES at Dodger Stadium ($16 vs $12). Sandy Koufax’s @dodgers swept the @Yankees that year making the beer taste that much sweeter. pic.twitter.com/tlTEkcr4El— Bruce Mehlman (@bpmehlman) March 28, 2018
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.
