It’s March, and while there’s no bad time for a Guinness, this month is an especially good one for anyone with St. Patrick’s Day on their mind. The famed Irish dry stout that has it’s own codified perfect pour is far more Irish than any green beer you may see on the menu, after all. Depending on where you’re at in the United States, that perfect pour may be incredibly affordable or cost a pretty penny. FinanceBuzz, a publication meant to help with your finances, crunched some numbers to find which states have the most and least expensive price on a pint of the cold, dark, and creamy stout.
A pint of Guinness runs for more than $8 in only three states (and one district). Six out of 10 of the most expensive places to buy one are on the East Coast, but the most expensive state to buy a Guinness is California. This $8.55 beer matches the state’s high cost of living.
