Average NHL Beer Cost for the 2014-15 Season

Hockey and Beer, two of life’s greatest pleasures that when combined together can bring quite a great time. Think about it, they even call recreational hockey “beer league” so how can you go wrong?

For countless years the average ticket price to attend an NHL game as a fan has been going up. It’s hitting wallets hard both in the states and Canada alike. However it doesn’t just stop at tickets, there’s also the concessions and their allure for your senses. More specifically, how much is a cup of beer going to cost you at the game? Too much.

The average beer price for the 2014-15 NHL season was $7.45 for a 16oz beer. The New York Rangers reported the most expensive “cheapest” beer at $10.50 for a 24oz pour. Just think about that, for right around that price you could grab yourself a 6-pack of your favorite brew and watch the game at home in your underwear. The average price for the 2014-15 season went up 11 cents from $7.34 (average cost for 2013-14 NHL season) and has been trending upwards steadily as more arenas sell out for games.

The cheapest average 16oz pour in the league comes in at an even $6 from the Dallas Stars. The most expensive average 16oz pour in the league comes in at $9.75 from the New York Islanders.

I grew up playing Ball and Roller Hockey day and night somewhat religiously throughout elementary and middle school. The two don't compare though when I lace up the skates and hit the ice. I live and breathe hockey beyond the perspective of "it's just a game" and I will gladly talk hockey for hours with anyone. Hockey is more than just a lifestyle, it's a culture of passionate people who make memories every time the puck is dropped. Hockey has not only helped me get through some of the hardest times in life but has created some of the best memories to date. Want to talk hockey with me? Shoot me an email: iburdetskiy@hookedonhockey.com and let's talk some hockey!
