DC’s Economies of Ale

Here is a great read on D.C.’s Economies of Ale. I only wish I wrote something like this in my Econ 101 class in college. Little did we know craft beer would enjoy such explosion ten years later! Good Beer = Bad for your Wallet… 😉

    I ran across this in my own beer RSS stream. The leveraging of prices from the wholesaler to the retailer AND from the retailer to the consumer is a really interesting concept… although I’d like to know what $18/glass beer Pizzeria Paradiso was selling for $10 on page 4. Get some!

    Cheers man, quality blog.

    Its a damn shame to see prices like that. The small little pub that my brewclub meets at has 20 beers on tap now and they range from 4-6 dollars. The only thing is you wont find a macrobrew on tap in that place. Its all kinda hard to find stuff…and its on tap. So I think it balances out ….i guess. Here in NC they sell beer in the grocery store and when I see a 6er for $10.99 and its a local, I am simply not buying it at that kinda price! There are some 12 pack variety packs sold here that are $18!!!
