Major League Beer.: Beer prices at the home of the Giants are across the board generally higher than other ballparks in the western region, according to an informal Chronicle survey. The $7.75 you pay for 16 ounces of what the Giants call a "super premium'' beer averages 48.4 cents an ounce. They've also got prices for Oakland, Petco (San Diego), Bank One (Phoenix) and Citizens Bank (Philly). How much at your stadium?

$4.75 per 12 ounces at Miller Park, that's 40 cents an ounce. I should note that tailgating prior to the game allows one to drink beer purchased at supermarket prices. Also, a discreet flask can take you a long way through a game.

Interesting that they didn't survey the price of beer @ Chavez Ravine. I feel a conspiracy coming on!

The other day I got so drunk at a ballgame in Texas that I took out a 4-year old kid trying to get to a foul ball. So people thought it was bad - but if you look at the footage, it was a tough play to make 8 beers in. Think about it.

$7.50 per 16-oz beer (not microbrews) in Turner Field. Not as bad as the Giants, but it still stinks.

nice, weedy. At the Ballpark in Arlington (fuck ameriquest) you can get a $5.50 22-oz beer. The trick is finding the one stand that has Shiner. So that's 27.38 cents per oz. Not bad, in comparison. Plus, they're still using the old non-Ameriquest cups for the time being, so I've stocked up on those.

Barney Gumble: "Brraaaaarp." *lips fluttering in perfect sine waves* jasonspaceman (or lilnemo): What's the price at Chavez Ravine?

C$6.50 for a bottle. Eight bucks for a tallboy. And the only decent beer the SkyDome has is Keith's. Too much of a crappy American selection. But at least the selection pleases the rich Boston fans who, in turn, tip my girlfriend generously.

OK, waitaminute, I must have you confused with someone else. Who's my fellow Dodgers fan? Was it lilnemo all along? Help.

*glug glug* Mmmm, research... *Bing* $8.00, though McCourt has spoken of raising beer prices and cracking down on tailgating to help foster more of a family atmosphere. I for one wouldn't mind a slight bump in beer prices if it meant more kids could enjoy the game without some drunk cursing at the usher and then puking in the aisle (not that this is a normal occurance at the Ravine, just trying to illustrate a point). Then again, I'm usually the DD, so it makes no difference to me.

I was busted for tailgating at Chavez Ravine last year. They've got these roving security carts that cruise around the parking lot. Now I just head to one of the fine houses of spirit that line Sunset Blvd in fabulous Echo Park where a beer can still be had for about 2.50 and where the discerning customer can enjoy a shot of rye before watching the Dodgers lose 2-1.
