Recently - and just in time for St. Patrick’s Day - Nerdwallet.com released a study on the cheapest cities for beer drinkers. Based on some fancy math that involves a six-pack of Heineken, median incomes, beer tax and beer demand, the site determined that Washington, DC, is the least expensive city for beer drinkers. (If you’re earning the median income, you could buy more than 30,000 Heinekens a year!) Of course, now you want to know the most expensive city for beer drinkers; according to Nerdwallet, that’s Chicago.
The specialty, though, is wild beers, and selections from the Wicked Wood aged beers include Oblivion, which is described as “deliberately sour,” made with 88 pounds of blackberries and 20 pounds of dried dates and aged for eight months in Cabernet wine barrels.
