Stan and Haney had the great opportunity to dine with the coach on several occasions at his restaurant in Naples. Coach Shula was always a fine host and we never knew who else would be dining with us.

The Price of Beer at Every NFL Stadium

The 2022 NFL Season is upon us and it’s time to plan those game day trips. And beer is part of that budget. Maybe you plan to catch a game at an out of town stadium? Maybe I’m in Estero and every NFL stadium is out of town for me? That’s actually a lot more true. How much is an Uber round trip to Tampa?

So what about grabbing a beer at an out of town ballpark? Por que no los dos? But how much is it? Every year, sports business data firm Team Marketing Report releases its NFL Fan Cost Index and what they found, the price of beer varies greatly across the stadiums. Statista has really good data on this, too.  And the price of a beer seems to be totally unrelated to how good the team is. A beer at a Jaguars game is double what they charge in Cincinnati at a Bengals game.. They could charge more.

The Dolphins charge $11 which is why I show up drunk. Maybe a lower priced option should be available? The Washington Commanders have no business charging for beer at all. They should make beer free to anyone willing to buy a ticket. And the beer should be brought to me. With peanuts. Enough with the conjecture. Let’s analyze the price of beer at each of the NFL stadiums. Keep in mind that inflation is running pretty hot and I’m writing this on August 4th. They may raise the prices even more.

Pretty simple, team name, price for a small draft beer, fun picture.
