Here's how much a case of beer costs in each U.S. state

How much cheese would you cough up for a case of beer?

Thrillist put beer to the test to determine how much an average case of beer costs in each state. They dug up prices from national and regional retailers in up to 10 zip codes in every state. Because the available beers change from state to state, they used two brands you know you can find everywhere, aka a 24-pack of Bud Light and Miller Lite. The absolute staples.

They also made sure to pick a mix of rural and urban zip codes to represent a variety of areas in each state. So how much is an average case of beer in Washington?

$20.61.

States that had the cheapest cases were Illinois, with the average case costing $15.20. Illinois is followed by South Carolina, New York, Rhode Island, and a tie between Kansas and Michigan.

States that are suffering are Alaska, which is at the bottom with $31.21 and is keeping company with Wyoming ($26.68), Hawaii ($22.39), Montana ($22.28) and Tennessee ($22.25).

So with all that in mind, I don't think we are doing to bad, hey?! Learn more at Thrillist.
