Here in Saskatchewan it cost almost $9.00 for a six pack of warm beer. But they do have those barrels full of water so you can shill your wine before you go home. So i must say I drop a 6 pack in there walk around the liquor store for 5 minutes and they are cold. Otherwise you go to the cold beer store and you are looking at at least $11.50. Remember this is only for 6 beer. The city where I live we don't have stores to buy liquor it has to be a liquor store or a package pick-up. For pop. Well we have no name and the brand name. For 12 pop brand name your looking at almost 6.00 and for no -name $4.00. It's pretty pricy that's why I'm thinking of making my own beer this winter. How about you? Prices higher or lower? From Saskatchewan by Saskatoon.

Is that Canadian dollars?

Here, in New York state, a 12-er of domestic beer can be had for $7.99, plus tax & deposit. Cases of 24 are sometimes on special for $11.99. I'm speaking of Budweiser, Miller, Labatts, and Coors. All prices in USD. Don't forget about the exchange rate.

Every Friday I purchase a "growler" of draft beer at my local brewery for $5. That's 64 oz of hand-crafted tastiness. What a bargain.

At sports bars & nightclubs, beers range from $1.50 to $4. There's almost always a special and it's almost guaranteed to be Coors or Labatts.

Sorry you're having beer troubles. My recommendation would be to go where the atmosphere is minimal. Normally, you'll find that the patrons are nicer, and the beer is cheaper and colder.

Sodas here run about (USD) $3 for name brand and $2 for off brand.

Alcohol, about the same as the guy above.

In winnipeg, it's about $8.00 for a six pack of cold beer. For name brand pop 12=$2@7.00 or for no-name $2.99 for a 12 pack!!!

Here in vermont for a good local brew, we pay around 8.00 for a six pack of bottles. Considering the canadian exchange rate, your price doesn't sound to bad (your beer also has a higher alcohol content). Of course, for that same eight dollars I could probably buy a case of budwiser cans, I'm not really sure, though, it's been a while since I priced out that stuff. Soda is around 3.00 for a 12 pack of cans.

In Ontario, a case of 24 cans of pepsi or coke sells for $6.49 on sale with a regular price of $7.49. If you drink the no-name or store brand, it's $4.99. For a case of 24 glass bottles of beer, you are budgetting about $36.70. Liquor on the other hand is mostly what I'd be drinking. A 26 oz bottle of rye is about $19.

Rebecca,

Drink only Pepsi - 24 pack - which is now called a cube runs $4.99 on sale / off is $5.99 so I stock up on about 4 -5 cubes at a time. I can only find it at this price at the big discount grocery store which is about 45 minutes away when I do my major shopping for the month - 6 weeks at a time. Locally it's about $2.00 more.

Seattle--6 pack of microbrews is $6-$7. I've been buying our local cheap beer (Rainier) for around $6 for a 12-pack of bottles. It tastes really good with some fresh lemon juice in it, plus it's so cheap. Bud, Miller, etc seems really expensive here so I never buy it. I'm not sure about soda since I don't drink it.

RE: How much is alcohol where you live?

In Missouri, the home of Budweiser, 12 packs of Bud run $8. But I buy good local brew (Boulevard) @ $6 for a 6 pack, life is too short to drink bad beer.
