Giants-Have-Most-Expensive-Beer-in-Baseball-52387597.html">Buying beer at a Giants game is sure to leave a whole in the wallet:
That $8.75 you pay for a 20-ounce beer is more than any other team in baseball -- by a full 75 cents. The stadium serving the second most-expensive beer is the Tampa Bay Rays' Tropicana Field, charging "just" $8 for a 20-ounce beer. But that's a franchise that has to overcharge for beer, because they can't get anyone to pay admission and come to their games.
While AT&T Park topped the most-expensive list, it is actually a far worse rip-off to buy beer at Boston's Fenway Park. Fenway Park came in third with a $7.25 beer -- but that $7.25 only buys you a 12-ounce beer. That's almost half as tiny as the beers you can get at a Giants game, and the same amount of beer you'd get in one measly can from a standard American six-pack.
Then again, cheaper prices would probably lead to a rise in public drunkenness, which is something that MLB and most of society does not want to deal with.
So maybe the high prices are actually a good thing?
