The NBA season starts tonight, and one thing that I stumbled upon (without a stumbleupon link) was this awesome site that is also close to my name. Statista is a great site to find stats and studies on industries, commodities, media and more.
Best yet for me, who is slowly getting out priced for being a usual in-attendance fan of the Warriors, Average Beer Prices for NBA Team Arenas for last season. Here are some fun things I found:
- The overall league average is $7.50 a beer
- Last year’s champion Cleveland Cavs were the cheapest
- Knicks were most expected (NY market expectations) followed by the Phoenix Suns (is it because it’s so damn hot out there people will pay anything for cold beer, but it’s a winter sport)
- The abundance of local craft beers does not seem to drive up cost (see Denver, Portland, etc.)
Here’s hoping they do it soon for this season.
