    SD Padres selling 3.2 beer for $8.50/cup

    [size=12pt]Beer is high on price, low on alcohol content[/size]

    More bucks, less bang.

    Padres fans already know beer sold at Petco Park has a higher price tag than the same thing elsewhere. But they might be surprised to learn some of the beer also has lower alcohol content.

    Three of the downtown ballpark's domestic draft brands – Budweiser Select, Miller Lite and Miller Genuine Draft – contain 3.2 percent alcohol by weight.

    Go to a bar and most regular domestic draft beer will have about 4 percent alcohol by weight. Most light beers run about 3.4 percent.

    In other words, it's not just the Padres' batting lineup – producers of only six home runs so far this season – that's weak.

    “It's kind of upsetting,” said Randall Brooks of Ventura, who was unknowingly drinking a 3.2 percent beer, a 20-ounce cup that set him back $8.50 at Wednesday's Padres game. “I should get what I'd get anywhere else.”

    Does .2 really make that much of a difference?

    Considering that .20 is wayyyyy drunk if it's your BAC, then, yes, I think it does.

    It's still a ripoff even at 4% alcohol content.
    The beer that they serve is crap anyway...c'mon...Miller Lite.
    I wouldn't drink it back in the day when it was FREE and I was a poor college student.

    Gimme that $5 lemonade any day.

    To think you could almost get a 30 pack of the Beast for that much 2 years ago.

    By the way.
    You yutz's out there need to quit drinking the beast as it seems to be going up in price quarterly.

    It's more like....

    “Is kina upsetig,” slurred Randall Brooks of Ventura, who was unknowingly drinking a 3.2 percent beer, a 20-ounce cup that set him back $8.50 at Wednesday's Padres game. “Is shou get what I'd get *burp* anywur L's.”

    Trying to bring rationale to an irrational site
