Drinkers looking to stretch their beer budget might want to consider a move to Baton Rouge, LA. The city has the cheapest beer in the U.S., according to a survey by the website WalletHub, which analyzed 18 key metrics of the 150 most populated U.S. cities to find “the best and worst foodie cities for your wallet.” Aurora, IL, and Chicago tied for the most expensive cities at $13.32 for the average price of a six-pack of 12-oz cans, compared with Baton Rouge’s $7.41 per six-pack. Rounding out the top five cheapest cities for beer were Oklahoma City; Omaha, NE; Buffalo, NY; and St. Louis. The other top finishers for the most expensive beer were New York, Anchorage, AK, and Pittsburgh.
