I must be getting ripped off because my beer at the PNC Arena is always 8 or 9 bucks.

Izod Center? Who plays there? Apparently somebody is going there for beer and nothing else

The used the Izod Center (Formerly Continental Airlines Arena) instead of the Prudential Center for New Jersey's home rink.

I can confirm that the prices at the Tampa Bay Times Forum were outrageous. When I was there last (2009, when it was still the St. Pete Times Forum) the cheapest beer was about $8 and it went upwards of $12 for something better.

yeah craft beers at the RBC... you're not getting away with one of those for less then 8 bucks and that's what I go for every. single. time.

Budweiser vs Natty Greene's, Goose Island (yah, also InBev, I know), Foothills, Lonerider... I know which ones I'm going for. We have it good in that regard, and pay out the ass for it.

8 bucks is probably cheap league wide

I'd like to know where the hell they're finding a $6 36 oz beer in the AAC. Give me a break.

United Center is up to $8, up a quarter from what's listed.

That's for Bud, Bud Light. Anything else: Goose Island, Heineken, Stella, Boston Lager, to name a few are $9.

Honestly, those massive cups of Foothills People's Porter for 8 bucks (am I remembering right, or are they more?) is really not bad pricing for a sporting event.

It's looks very outdated. No arena in California has even the cheapest beer for less than $9 anymore

Tampa needs to make money somewhere. Their season tickets are less than single tickets in some arenas.

I think they went up in price this year (9 now I think), but yeah that's my standard at the games.

At Verizon Center all beer costs $8.50, but you get more of the crappy beer.
