Why did they charge $8 for a beer at the OSU game? That's an outlandish price. It gripes me to spend that much for a 6-pac. It seems like they could charge around $3 a beer, and chances are sell 10 times more beer.

I don't know. If enough people refuse to buy beer, maybe they'll reduce the outrageous price.

It will be interesting to see if the price of beer goes up after 3.2% beer quits being sold in October. Meanwhile, have been enjoying that for much of this summer, 16 packs of 3.2% beer have been selling for $2 off at Wal-Mart, now $12.23.

They don't want to sell 10 times more beer. They want to offer beer but limit its consumption.

True. And anyone who lives in a major league sports market knows that $8.00 for a beer is actually a pretty reasonable price. $10.00-$12.00 is more typical.

Maybe it's a survey by the economics dept. to see how many football fans have more money than sense.
