Minnesota Wild fans pay more for their beer

ST. PAUL, Minn. (KMSP) -

Minnesota Wild fans are paying more for their beer compared to 30 other teams in the NHL.

According to recent data from Team Marketing Report, the $9.50 price point for a 20-ounce cup puts their beer over the top, tying with the Anaheim Ducks and New York Islanders, though Islanders fans only get 16 ounces for that price, John Vomhof Jr. with the Minneapolis/St. Paul Business Journal reports.

Beer is pricey in New York -- the New York Rangers offer 12 ounces for $8.75. However, life's good in Washington, D.C. – it's only $8 for 24 ounces.

Wild tickets are also more expensive than average -- the average NHL ticket costs $61.62 and the average Wild ticket costs $65.39. Fans are paying more than average for hot dogs and sodas as well, but parking is below average.

The Wild ranks 13th out of 30 teams using the Fan Cost Index that estimates the cost for a family of four to attend a game, get two beers, four sodas, four hot dogs, park one car, get two programs and two adult caps.
