Beer Prices Are Weird in Montana, Check Out This Stat
Beer drinkers won't be happy seeing these statistics.
Who doesn't love a beer after a long week of work? Montanans love it all. Domestic, imported, or a nice pint from a local brewery, and we will drink it with a smile. If you don't believe me, Montana usually ranks in the Top 3 for beer consumption yearly.
One Montana town even made the Top 10 list of the drunkest cities in America. We love drinking beer.
That's why this stat is hard to read.
24/7 Tempo made a list of The Price of a Case of Beer in Every State and Where it Ranks. When it comes to Montana, you will be blown away and disheartened.
24/7 Tempo looked at the average price of a 24-pack of beer Miller Lite and Bud Light, and it's bad news for Montana.
According to these statistics, the average price for a case of beer in Montana hovers just above $24. Where does that rank among other states? We have the fourth-highest price for a case of beer.
That hits the wallet hard. With the prices of gas and meat rising, one would hope beer would stay cheap, but if you go into any supermarket these days, the reality will set in. Even at most Montana breweries, you will pay a brutal price for a pint of beer.
When Montana is ranked with states that import their beer from the continental United States, you know that's a bad sign. Maybe we should look into why beer prices are so high in Montana.
I remember when a 30-pack of beer was under $20, but those days are long gone. We can only hope cheap beer comes back soon.
