Beer Calculator & 10 Ways To Save On Beer

This is what happens when me and Nate get together…I’m not sure if it’s a good thing or not, but it certainly keeps us entertained. We sit around and talk about ideas we have about the sites while drinking beer. While the conversations range all over the place, tonight we started discussing how much we spend on beer, or more accurately, did we really want to know how much we spend on beer. Of course, once this discussion began we had to figure it out and so Nate put together the Beer Calculator:

While the calculations were fairly straightforward and simple for us, we figured that others would also want to figure out how much they were spending on this amber liquid as well

    Great calculator – Frightening to see the annual cost of the amber nectar.

    Hmmm..Giving up beer…Naaa….

    Tip for drinking beer for cheap in Vegas.

    Go to the bar.

    Place $20 in the video poker machine

    Ask for a beer

    Tip the bartender a buck

    Play very slowly (for quarters) on the video poker machine

    Then be very careful as you make your way out of the hotel as you will be completely loaded and playing the games for real money is a dangerous prospect at this point :)

    A friend of mine brews his own. There’s a learning curve, and when you get it right you basically get better beer for a good beer price.

    (There are only two kinds of beer — good beer, and better beer! 😉 )

    “If you like expensive beer, make your first two that brand and then switch to a cheaper brand after that since you won’t be able to tell the difference after that.” I’m sorry, but that is just so much BS. Sure, Pabst tastes better when you’re drunk, but to say that the difference between good beer and bad beer disappears after a few is incorrect, and damned irresponsible. It’s that kind of thinking that keeps the malted rice industry in business.

    I said switch to a cheaper brand, not the cheapest 😉

    I’m drinking myself into the poor house. $2500 per year on beer and I don’t even have a job. Oh well, I guess itll just go on the credit cards.

    Don’t know if this was mentioned,buy the 40 oz. bottles. At least in my town, it goes for about $2 / bottle.
    Buy just when you want to “have a couple” as opposed to buying buy the case, which is far too easy to over-consume, as .. “hey, I still have a 12 pack in the kitchen”
    Budweiser / Miller Lite are my usual brands of choice, as I can slam a couple
    of 40’s without any type of hangover the next day. the light beer is better for casual middle of the week drinking… less “stuff” in it to give you a hangover. Stay away from heavier Malt Liquors, Icehouse, Steel Reserve, and brands like that for CASUAL consumption. An occasion is something else… Then price / type is no object. Cheers.
