5. Pittsburgh Pirates and Los Angeles Dodgers
Price of a small draft beer: $6.75 for 20 ounces (Los Angeles), $5.50 for 16 ounces (Pittsburgh)
Price per ounce: 34 cents
It was tough to put these teams in the same sentence for many years, but they're mentioned in the same breath for all the right reasons now.
The Dodgers, with their coffers brimming with TV broadcast money, have a loaded lineup and stormed their way back into the playoffs and the National League Championship Series for the first time since 2009. The Pirates, meanwhile, capped their first winning season since 1992 with a win over their division rival Cincinnati Reds in the NL Wild Card game and a division series against the Cardinals that went the full five games. PNC Park now has something to see besides its gorgeous view of the city and something to occupy fans' time other than Primanti Brothers sandwiches and pierogi races.
While the Dodgers are a bit more familiar with what it's like to be a contender, the Pirates are still getting accustomed to the role. It's kind of them not to let that success get to their beer prices.
