Denver has cheap and GOOD beer.

I can get two 22oz MicroDrafts (2 for 1 happy house) for 5 dollars. So that's 44oz of beer for 6 dollars. And good beer at that!

Normal beer prices are 1.00 - 1.50 for PBR or 2.50 - 3.00 for a Crap Beer like bud or coors 3.00-5.00 will get you a local micro. 4.50-5.50 will get you a guiness or foreign crappy import that isn't as good as our local stuff

In L.A., you're likely to pay a $5-6 pint on say, Stella, PBR, or Guinness. I found a place that sold Deschutes Black Butte Porter for less than that, what a gem.

That's also been the standard everywhere I've lived. If the place I'm at is really busy, I'll generally tip more than a buck a drink for the first round or two. You're not tipping for the act of fixing your drink, your tipping for future service.

Exactly. I was a bartender for three years, some of which during college (college students almost never tip), but afterward, there's a general understanding that the more you give me, the faster I will get you your drinks. If somebody drops a nice tip on me early, of course I'm going to go straight to them even if I see somebody else clearly waiting for a drink. Beyond that, if your bartender is cracking the top off three bottles of beer for you and your pals, I don't typically give (nor did I expect) $3 for the trouble, but if they're mixing drinks for you, then $1 is pretty standard everywhere I've been.

Dan, generally a bottle of domestic will run you $5 where I live, unless it's Happy Hour or there's some daily special going on, and if you head to the city, you're talking more around $8, $9, even $10 I've seen for a domestic bottle depending on where you go, so be happy with your $4.50 raping :-b


:-b around here those are like trendy/clubby prices...(hell the T-bar is only like $7 a bottle i think)...i'd say your standard drinking bar is probably $3 a bottle or less and you can usually find something on special

There's a place that's literally walking distance from my house that sells BBP for $2.50/pint. It's glorious.

Sounds like Happy Hour prices on Coors Light. You must have done something special in your last life to deserve that beer at that price and proximity.

It's a private yacht club where the bar is only open to members and their guests. I'm not a member, and I'm rarely a guest, but I'm kind of big deal, and I know many of the members and board members, so they let me drink there. They sell all of their alcohol at cost, or even at a loss just as a service to the members.

I can get Black Butte at the price occasionally.

LA and NY = We're so cool we have to charge more for everything! Lamerzzz. Whats NYC got? Cold winters, rainy everything else, dirty streets, crime, too many people, expensive beer. It's like hell
