A pint of Yazoo’s Hop Project here. A Bushwacker from Broadway Brewhouse there. Pick your tasty poison, but know that the cost of drinking can add up. And we’re not talking health effects, but actual dollars.

  • 1 $5 drink, three times a week = $780 annually
  • 1 $5 drink, four times a week = $1,040 annually
  • 2 $5 drinks, three times a week = $1,560 annually
  • 3 $5 drinks, three times a week = $2,340 annually
