Sometimes, you arrive home after a long day and all you want is a cold beer.  Relaxing on the couch with a cold one in your clutches is one of the simplest, yet most effective, forms of relaxation.  Between your restrictive new budget, annoying and/or lazy co-workers, and failure to understand all this of financial mumbo-jumbo, sometimes a nice, frosty beer is just what the doctor ordered.  Well, the genius beer makers are raising prices on this, last sliver of peace of mind.

Citing higher production costs, Anheuser-Busch has decided to raise their prices in order to offset increased overhead expenses.  These “production” costs have affected major domestic beer distributors and made the price of a six-pack slightly more expensive.  Anheuser is going to implement the price increases based on a variety of factors such as brand, market location, and packaging.  Some regions may have a lower increase, while drinkers of the more “refined” brands may see the highest swell in price.  Budweiser previously raised prices last year, and Miller Coors expects to raise prices later this year.  Sheesh, can we get a break?

  1. The way I look at it, after the price hikes a 6 pack of Bud might be just about the same as a lot of craft beers. Experiment! Now the price won’t be the reason not to try something new, maybe even something brewed locally.

  2. Good point. Any reason to drink a new beer and possibly discover a good one is enough for me.
